To start your Florence Segway Night Tour, you will meet your English speaking guide and get onto your segway at Piazza della Republica (Republic Square). Built in the 19th century as part of a massive redevelopment project, it was Florence’s commercial and political centre in the Roman era and housed a food market in the Middle Ages. Presently, lined with several cafes, restaurants and shops, it is one of the most entertaining and liveliest places in Florence with a huge carousel situated at the centre.
Get, set, go for a wonderful tour as you pass along the illuminated Santa Croce Square which houses the Franciscan church, Basilica di Santa Croce. It is the burial place of some of the most notable Italians such as Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli and Rossini. Your guide will enrich you with fascinating stories and the history of the sites visited as you glide along with the soft evening breeze.
From Santa Croce Square proceed to the most beautiful part of Florence, Signoria Square where you will visit the historic Palazzo Strozzi that reflects Renaissance architecture with its mullioned windows and distinct cornice. The piazza also houses the most miraculous edifice of Renaissance art, Florence Duomo, its orange dome illuminated under the dark sky.
