Highlights

During 2000 years of its history, Florence grew and flourished, fell, and flourished again Its eventful past left the city adorned with exquisite architecture artworks. When coming to Florence for the first time, its hard to know where to begin.


Booking our Florence Segway Tour will provide you with a wholesome introduction to city's history as well as its current life. Throughout the tour, our professional expert guide will share useful and interesting facts about your surroundings.


There is another reason segway tour is one of the best sightseeing tours Florence has to offer. Firstly, since there are so many places to see in Florence, trying to reach them all by foot is challenging. Secondly, the Florentine streets in the center are narrow and mostly traffic free, so bus tours aren't able to access all the points of interests.

History Sneak Peek

Florence is, above all, known for being the cradle of Renaissance and home to the most spectacular artistic treasures created during this period. You might also know it for its impressive political and economic achievements in the Middle Ages...


However, the city's history goes much further. The today elegant Florence came into existence in 59 BC. Who is behind it? The (in)famous Julius Caesar himself! He established the settlement as a haven for military veterans. What's more, he named the city Florentia meaning flourishing.  Perhaps he had a hunch about its prosperous future...


However, since Florence happened to be situated on land great for farming AND on a major travel route between northern Italy and Rome, it grew into a bustling commercial hub. In addition to all that, the city became an important banking center with the powerful Medici banking family as its ultimate puppet master!


It's the economic flourishing that created a perfect atmosphere for the creation of art. This movement led to the establishment of the Accademia Gallery - initially a school for aspiring artists. Many of the most influential artists at the time gathered in Florence to create their masterpieces, including Botticelli, Michelangelo, Ghirlandaio and Leonardo da Vinci.

Awesome tour and knowledgeable guide, Kate. SHe gave us lots of tips for the rest of the trip! though, the streets were very busy as it was Easter, so dodging the pedestrians was a challenge. Overall I highly recommend it, less tiring then walking tour.
