Tour description provided by Viator

Embark on a 3.5-hour Segway tour through the wonders of ancient Rome. Join a small group on a stand-up, motorized tour past some of the city's most iconic sights, including the Roman Forum, the Colosseum, Circus Maximum, and the Baths of Caracalla. Visit unexpected places, gliding past age-old ruins on the modern world's chariot: the Segway. Choose to upgrade your tour to include exclusive skip-the-line entry ticket to the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill and bypass enormous line on a trio of self-guided visits.
Meet your tour guide and a small group of others in front of the Colosseum for an exciting glide through Italy's capital city. After an easy initial training session (most guests feel comfortable in minutes regardless of prior Segway experience), it's time to set off through the streets and see the city's most iconic sites — each synced to a custom multi-media presentation that plays on iPods you're provided with. Enjoy breathtaking views over Circus Maximus and imagine yourself cheering on chariot races. Marvel at breathtaking panoramas as you cruise above the Caracalla Baths and Palatine Hill, and savor a spectacular vista of St. Peter's Basilica from the lesser-known Orange Tree Garden -- with its bitter orange trees and towering umbrella pines. Discover a keyhole view of St. Peter's dome at the Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta and admire the intriguing man-like Mouth of Truth at the church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin. Next, it's on to the Roman Forum, where you'll roll past ancient columns, archways, and temples before continuing on to Capitoline Hill, home to a piazza Michelangelo designed. With ample energy to spare, you'll circle back to your final stop — the Colosseum — for a glide around its perimeter and the perfect photo op, since the best views of this ancient amphitheater are from outside. Not ready to go home? Pre-purchase an upgraded ticket with exclusive skip-the-line entry to the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill at your leisure. Tickets are good for up to one year, or 48-hours once validated. Short on time? Select the 2 hour express Ancient Rome Segway tour and stick to the major sights like the Colosseum, Roman Form and Circus Maximus. Departs from July 1, 2018 in the afternoons at 3:00PM.
