What To Expect
Roaming the streets of Bologna on a segway allows you to get a true feel of the vibrant atmosphere that reigns in the city, amid the arcades and cloisters that pop up here and there: points were people have the space and time to relax and enjoy superb cuisine and the good company of friends.
The meeting point is at Piazza XX Settembre, smack in the middle of the historical center. This is the ideal starting point where all formalities are performed and where you can gain familiarity with your Segway PT vehicle.
A rather unusual but intriguing itinerary runs through via De' Toschi, leading us through the alleys of the medieval market (via Clavature and via Sampieri) and straight along one of the most peaceful streets: via Santo Stefano, home of the Basilica di Santo Stefano complex. This complex includes 7 Romanesque and Gothic churches, stunning artistic representations of the period when Bologna became a commune.
The route then follows the street back toward the shade of the renowned leaning towers and then continues on to the heart of the ancient Jewish ghetto. We will proceed down a section of via Zamboni, fully covered with "arcades," before we return to Piazza della Mercanzia. Here we will once again encounter the things we've seen before - the two towers (Asinelli and Garisenda) - but this time viewing them from another angle and in a different light: set against the Loggia della Mercanzia.
From Piazza della Mercanzia, we will go back through the medieval market area. At the end of via Clavature we will reach Piazza Maggiore, the "large square" with its fountain depicting Neptune.
