Overview
See Bologna, with its narrow streets, crooked medieval towers and miles and miles of arcaded walkways, from a different perspective: from a Segway. Cruise around this handsome Italian city on a Segway, learning about the history of each place, and seeing major landmarks, such as the five-hundred-year-old Fountain of Neptune, the Basilica di Santo Stefano, and much more. This small-tour is limited to just eight participants, which means you’ll get plenty of attention from the local guide.
What to Expect
Cruise around medieval Bologna in 21st-century fashion: on a Segway. This small-group guided tour of Bologna is the perfect way to see one of Italy’s most beautiful big cities, ideal for the first time visitor or the seasoned traveler.
Begin the tour with a 30-minute instructional on how the Segway works and learn about the itinerary of the tour you’re about to partake in. Try out the Segway before hitting the streets. And once you’re comfortable on it, begin the tour with your guide and small group.
Ride over to Piazza Minghetti, named after the popular 18th-century Bolognese politician Marco Minghetti, and linger here for a short time learning about the history of the space from the guide. Hear intriguing historical anecdotes about the city. And gawk at the ancient buildings that surround the square. Then ride over to Santo Stefano district, via the charming street Via De’ Toschi. Here, stop in front of the Basilica di Santo Stefano and learn about the history of the place.
Continue to ride on with your small-group, following your guide the entire time. Head to the heart of the city, the spot of the two tall medieval towers, an iconic symbol of this university city. Learn from your guide what made one of the towers lean. And then ride to nearby Piazza del Nettuno, the city’s main square, where you’ll learn all about the Fountain of Neptune, before returning again to Piazza XX Settembre, where the tour concludes.

Great way to see Bologna.
