Valencia Millenium + Port on Segway: This unique tour by Segway will take you through the beautiful Turia Gardens, Europe’s longest park as you cruise towards the state of the art marina and Formula 1 facilities at the port of Valencia. The Segway is an ultra-modern, eco-friendly vehicle, less sweat than cycling, faster than walking and is definitely the best way to explore this fascinating city.
The Segway really is simplicity itself to ride, as you'll find out yourself once you’ve jumped aboard. After taking a few practice spins, you’ll be ready to explore Valencia in style!
Then we’ll head off through the Turia Gardens, a snaking 10km swathe of parkland following the old course of the River Turia. As we travel down cycle paths, far from the city’s clogged traffic lanes, you’ll see how the park has been divided into sections with facilities for sports and leisure as well as some of the most modern architecture to be found anywhere in Europe. The City of Arts and Sciences, designed by local architect Santiago Calatrava, is definitely worth a visit.
From here we’ll continue to the brand new port and marina facilities, built for the celebration of the Americas Cup in 2007. Admire the stylish yachts moored at the marina and the impressive Veles i Vents building. Then take your Segway out on the Formula 1 race track, one of the few urban circuits of its kind in Europe.
Your knowledgeable guide will share loads of interesting details and local insight and you will enjoy plenty of breaks and photo stops along the way, making for a relaxing, informative tour.
