Florence Segway Tour at Night

Effortlessly cruise along the streets taking in Florence’s best known and best loved sites. Visit beautiful city squares, enjoy artisan gelato and see top Florence attractions like Palazzo Vecchio, Basilica of Santa Croce, Florence Duomo and more!

Join us for one of the most incredible ways to see the city of Florence - by riding a bike through sunset and into the night. In summer, it's the coolest time of day (in more ways than one).

As darkness descends, we turn our focus to the intrigue and scandals involved in the mix of art, money, and power that built this beautiful city into the center of medieval trade and finance. You'll learn the hidden history behind the birthplace of the Renaissance.

Of course, no history of Florence would be complete without the famous Medici family. Our first stop is the first Medici Palace, the workplace of the young artists Michelangelo, Donatello, and Botticelli. Nicknamed the ""Renaissance House"", this is where it all began.

We'll take you to some off-the-beaten-path stops that bring secret corners of this city to life as well as more famous streets, like Via de’ Tornabuoni, a paradise of boutique fashion. From there we'll cross the river into the vibrant neighborhood of Santo Spirito (or Holy Spirit), where the restaurants overflow and diners eat and drink for hours.

Next, we'll head along the river past the famous Ponte Vecchio, through San Niccolò and the old city wall and then down to a beautiful river beach. Here we break out some local Tuscan wine, and sip it on the banks of the Arno while enjoying a truly unique view of Florence from the riverside.

At the end of the evening, we'll make our way back through the historical center, filled with new memories of the sights, and the relaxed beauty that is the Renaissance City at night.
