Roll by the charming sights of this south of France city on a fun Segway tour of Nîmes. On either a 1, 1:30 or a 2-hour tour ride an electric scooter past highlights of the fantastic Gallo-Roman town.
What to Expect
A Segway allows you to cover more ground than walking, while enjoying fresh air and the flexibility to cruise through narrow passages and stop as often as you like. Choose from a 1, 1.5 or 2-hour tour and begin your Segway adventure in central Nîmes where you’ll meet your local guide and get comfortable riding the self-balancing electric scooter with a 15-minute training.
The tour begins directly with the monumental Arènes de Nîmes where it is possible to take a picture in front of it. Continue on to the esplanade Charles De Gaulle, which is a quiet place with a fountain, people and a garden. Here you will learn to drive the Segway with different obstacles. After that, go into the old city with many squares, fantastic churches and authentic shops. Your guide will share historical facts, stories and food specialties about Nîmes along the way. See the gorgeous Roman Maison Carrée built during the first Century, and the modern Carré d’Art built by Norman Foster. Before concluding, cross the oldest street of Nîmes, the Street Fresque with Spanish art, some restaurants and bars.
This tour follows the same itinerary as above until Maison carrée and Carré d'Art, after which you will continue on to Place d’Assas, a square with restaurants, a nice fountain and decorations. Follow the docks of Jardin De La Fontaine. In front of the gates there is a nice view of the quiet garden, big fountain and la Tour Magne Roman tower. After all that, it's time to come back to the agency by the the oldest street of Nîmes, the Street Fresque with Spanish art, some restaurants and bars.
This tour follows the same itinerary as above until Jardin de la Fontaine. Here, after a little break you’ll have a chance to maximize the Segway’s power and cruise at speeds of up to 12 mph (20 kmph) to cross the long Avenue Jean Jaures and watch the Pyramid and the Bull Tower and finish the Segway tour by discovering the authentic Roman gate Porte de France and come back by the arenas.
