Jumeirah Grand Hotel Via Veneto has unveiled a new Summer Segway Experience, inviting guests to glide through Rome on their very own Segway, a zero-emission personal transportation system.

Tucked away from Rome’s vibrant centre lies the Villa Borghese Park and guests of Jumeirah Grand Hotel Via Veneto can now enjoy a two hour unguided exploration of this beautiful parkland from their Segway. The park offers a secluded oasis with architectural delights and fine art, the perfect retreat from the bustling Eternal City. Guests will also be provided with a signature picnic designed by the hotel’s Chef to take on the ride as they enjoy a spin around the tranquil grounds. The tour will offer chances to see the villa’s extensive art collection and time to relax beneath the bows of the centuries-old trees for a feast of delicious Italian food.

On return from the rolling parkland, guests can sample complimentary aperitifs in one of the hotel’s restaurants and then enjoy complimentary entrance to the hotel’s AQVA City SPA, characterised with a refined mix of classic white marble fittings and modern facilities. 

The Summer Segway Experience is available from approximately €380 per night for two guests. For bookings and enquiries, email JVVreservations[at]

About Jumeirah Grand Hotel Via Veneto:

Jumeirah Grand Hotel Via Veneto is a work of art in itself. A union of two 19th Century historical buildings, the hotel has skillfully combined these former properties to create a modern masterpiece that pays homage to its historic past. Inspired by Ruhlmann (the father of 1920s Art Deco), the hotel contains handmade furniture of exquisite quality, as well as its own impressive art collection of celebrated artists, from Picasso to Miro, Nespolo to De Chirico, adorning the walls. Situated in the heart of the city, below the Villa Borghese gardens, guests to the hotel are perfectly placed to explore the wonders of Rome.
