Private Florence Segway Tour

Glide through Florence on our Private Segway Tour

Experience the history and wonders of the city at the center of the Italian Renaissance on a 21st century ride! Effortlessly explore the cobbled streets of Florence with your personal expert tour guide for your private group. Our standard public tours offer a fantastic orientation to the city, and opting for a private tour for your family or friend group guarantees a personalized experience with undivided attention from your guide. 

Whether you're brand new to riding a Segway or a seasoned pro, our tour starts off with an orientation and practice session at our office where your guide will demonstrate best riding techniques and make sure you're comfortable before heading out into the city. Your tour kicks off by cruising directly into the heart of the Florence city center, where your guide will fill you in on all the fascinating and entertaining history of sites including Piazza della Repubblica (the former center of the Roman city) and the nearby Mercato del Porcellino, a buzzing market dating back to the 16th century.

Of course, no visit to Florence is complete without seeing the Duomo, formally called Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, and Brunelleschi's magnificent dome. Completed in 1436 after over 200 years of work, Florence Cathedral reigns as the jewel of the Florence skyline. We'll stop here with plenty of time to take photos and take in mind-blowing facts and anecdotes from your guide about the history of this impressive structure and the neighboring Giotto's Tower. Your tour continues as we effortlessly glide between the sights and see numerous Florence highlights including Via Tornabuoni, Piazza Santa Maria Novella, Piazza della Signoria, Piazza Santa Croce, and much more.

The Private Florence Segway Tour allows you to experience Florence just how you'd like to see it without the distraction of outside guests, and covers more ground in just a few hours than you ever could on foot. We want you to love Florence like we do, and have a ton of fun seeing it!

    Your safety is always our highest priority. Therefore, we begin each tour with a very thorough orientation of the Segway and its use before going out to enjoy the city

    We’ve found that our guests pick up on how to ride a Segway within the first 10 minutes, but we like to take 20-30 minutes to explain the machines, demonstrate the best riding techniques, and then allow time to practice before heading out to see the sites. We like to ensure that every guest feels 100% confident before beginning the tour.

    While riding a Segway is fairly leisurely, you will be on your feet for the duration of the tour.

  • Expand/Collapse Can minors come on tour alone?

    For safety reasons, minors (anyone under the age of 18) must be accompanied by an adult on the tour.
