Full description
On this fun, informative Segway tour, discover the city of Messina, which was entirely rebuilt after the terrible earthquake destroyed it in 1908. Starting from Via Castellammare, near Via Garibaldi, next to the Catalani Church, you will go to the city's commercial center - Piazza Cairoli - and on to Piazza Pugliatti where there the Court of Justice and university are located. Next, move on to Piazza Duomo to admire the fountain of Orion and the Cathedral with its bell tower, famous for its astronomical clock unveiled in 1933 when the reconstruction of the Christian temple was finished. You will see the church S.S. Annunziata dei Catalani, with its beautiful baroque fountains in front. Nearby in Via Lepanto, see the monument dedicated to Don Juan of Austria before proceeding to Piazza Antonello, enclosed by neoclassical palaces. On the way to the medieval church San Francesco d’Assisi, admire the baroque palace Monte di Pietà. Continue through the public gardens to reach Piazza Unità d'Italia, where you will see the Palace of the Government and the fountain of Neptune by Montorsoli. From here, you will ride back to Piazza Municipio, observing the statue of Ferdinand de Bourbon and the Teatro Vittorio Emanuele along the way. Tour itinerary can be modified on-site with your guide to include, for example, shopping at Viale San Martino; a panoramic view from Montalto Church, or the North Coast Museum.

fun way to see the city highlights

informative and flexible guide who also offered to take photos and email them to me afterwards. a great way to see the City with some fantastic views and places that we would not have discovered on our own. much better than walking as you cover so much more ground and see things closer up than you would on a tour bus. I would definitely recommend this

Fabulous and Fun!

We met with our guides for the Segway tour of Messina - Leo, his son Frederico, and Sergio - who, after giving us a little practice on the segways, took us on a guided tour of Messina over over the town. We saw all the sights and had a wonderful time.

Not a lot to see

Once we found the meeting point for the tour we were given a quick lesson on how to use the Segway, then we were off! Initially it was quite good but as the traffic increased it became quite crowded on the streets and a little scary! There wasn't a lot to see and explore in Messina and the traffic was running thick and fast... Being a novice on a Segway I was overwhelmed and its not necessarily something I would book again but nothing against the tour company!
