Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin at Villa Pacini, where you’ll meet up with your guide and participate in a brief Segway training session. Then take off toward the UNESCO-listed city center.

    Travel into the heart of the city, arriving in Piazza Duomo. Learn the history behind each architectural gem as you admire the surrounding Baroque palaces. Check out City Hall and snap some photos in front of Fountain of the Elephant, made from Catania’s signature volcanic stone.

    Continue along Via Etnea, the lively main drag named after Sicily’s enormous – and very active – volcano. Then, make your way to Piazza Stesicoro to see the city’s Roman ruins, including the site of the old amphitheater.

    Afterward, journey into the park of Villa Bellini, winding your way up to Piazza Dante, overlooking the city. Check out panoramic views from San Nicola Church before exploring the exterior of the Benedictine monastery.

    As you descend back to the city center, make a final stop at the 13th-century Castle Ursino, the medieval showpiece of Piazza Federico di Svevia.

    Your tour will conclude back at your original departure point.

    Firstly, I'd like to say that the people were very nice and the tour is OK for someone who's never ridden a Segway before, but the Segways on our tour were restricted to Turtle-mode and as people who’ve ridden these fun machines many times before we were quite frustrated at the

    Response from SegwayPT-by-CSTRents, CEO CSTRents at Catania Segway Tour
    Responded 9 Oct 2019
    I'm glad that, in our client's vote, we went from 1/5 to 2/5. It was enough to point out to him that he was telling lies in his original review about the fact that our Segways were not original. It was the only thing that we areinterested to not seeing written: a falsehood in all respects (which, opportunely, he canceled). We did not want to oppose it, as well as on that falsehood, also on the fact that our Segways were in Turtle mode: this is because .... it's the truth! We are happy with this certification because it means that we have particular attention both towards the law (which requires the use of Segway, in pedestrian areas, with this limitation), and towards customers (and pedestrians): this is an opportune safety choice! We didn't want to upset him even when he says that a Walking Tour is just as extensive: he won't find even one, on the market, that does, in 3 hours, such a long journey as ours. At most it will be 50% of ours with a half-day duration. We thank him, however, for his kind words to us and also for having informed us, even a few hours before departure, that one of the people he had booked could not take part in the Segway Tour. If only he had communicated it with more advance we would be happy to grant you a full refund. In light of the above ..... is such a low grade really justified? :)

    Marie Luise and Leo do a great job in introducing you to Catania: The city, the history and its peculiarities. Also, they are careful to ensure that everyone masters the Segway, and that the tour proceeds in a right pace for the group. Indeed, a delightful, instructive, and easy

    Our family of six is experienced with Segways. There is a lot to see in Catania, especially the tremendous views of Mt Etna. The tour itself was just ok but this is still a fun way to get introduced to a place.

    The company had us deposit and then came back and said that they would not honor the price due to the amount of people on the tour. The company needs to guarantee the price if they take your credit card and charge the amount. They offer a refund if you cancel 7days prior to

    We have done numerous Segway tours in different cities around the world. This is the first time that there was not an official office to visit in Catania to book and chat with the organisers. Consequently this resulted in making a booking very difficult. It made us unsure
