What People Are Saying About Syracuse
We had a great Segway experience in Ortigia/Syracuse, considering it's not a tour they do often, if at all. We met in a convenient parking lot where our private group of 4 was able to get all the segway training we needed. We had two guides, the man in the front did the navigating, and our cute Italian gal in the back provided all the history and information via headphones. Going out on Sicily's streets and sidewalks was a bit more tricky navigating than I expected. We were mindful of bumpy cobblestones, fast cars and even old people on the sidewalks who weren't a bit too happy seeing Segways go by. The tour of Ortigia was great and informative, with a fabulous tour of the Basicalla and beautiful coastal waters. I do wish I would have customized the tour to include entrance to the Archeological Park and ampitheater. We saw only the quarries at the end of the tour, so I felt like we missed an important part. Had I known, we would have seen that before meeting up for the tour.
