Italy

Traveling through Italy is extremely easy, since the three cities we mentioned are connected by high speed railways which shortens the distances between them and allows you to plan a nice trip  with little effort. For instance departing from Milan, Florence is just 2 hours away and Rome just 3 and a half. Trains are modern and comfortable and you can choose the  best rate between two companies, Frecciarossa and Italo. As usual if you want to get a nice offer- book in advance. You could pay 19€ for a ticket Milan – Florence !

You can start your trip for instance in Rome, get the train to Florence and then to Milan and…who knows join a Segway Tour with us in Rome, a Segway Tour in Florence and one in Milan. They’re totally different, and while doing them, you’ll understand why every Italian city has its own strong features.

Be smart, once you book a tour, 10% off for the next one!

But once you’re there? How can you easily and safely move through the cities?

Milan

Has a terrific underground railway system, and moreover you can use buses and trams. Our suggestion? Check out the tram #1, which is an historical one and passes by the most important monuments of the city.

Getting a 24 or a 48hr ticket, you can travel trough the city using all of them. The Milano Card, also, provides a 48hr ticket, plus discounts you can use in museums, activities and much more…like in our Milan Segway Tour and Milan Food Tour!

If you feel athletic and you’re not scared by cars, you can borrow one of the yellow bikes of the bike sharing and start to ride (thankfully Milan is flat!).

If you’re wondering where’s the meeting point of our Segway Tour and Food Tour, a clue is: keep in mind Lanza Metro Station on the Green line 😉

Psst…If you’re already a client of the car sharing company Car2Go, you can use your subscription also in Milan.

Florence

The Santa Maria Novella train station, couldn’t be more central, from there you can basically walk wherever you want in the very center of the city…and maybe find our headquarters right behind Piazza della Signoria. There you’ll find our smiling staff arranging the segways for your engaging Florence Segway Tour!

If you’re planning to see museums during your stay, then consider to purchase the Firenze Card, which will ensure you to visit 72 (!!) museums and use all the bus lines for 72 hrs.

Buses run frequently and reach also nice villages around the city like for instance Fiesole or Settignano. Since Florence is in a strategic position in the heart of Tuscany, using also regional buses, you can consider to visit other charming towns like Siena or San Gimignano.

Rome

Rome is huge and to visit it if you don’t want tired feet, you’ll definitely need to use public transportation. The underground is extremely easy to use, since the railway system is designed in an X shape and with its three lines (A,B and C), will get you near most known monuments of the Eternal City.

The useful Roma Pass runs for 34€ and as the website says: “entitling card holders to use public transport for three days running, as well as benefit from discounts in museums, at tourist sites, shops and theaters”…and our Rome Segway Tour and Rome Bike Tour, not bad!
