Jumeirah Grand Hotel Via Veneto offers ‘Segway’ to Roman Adventure

London, 20 August 2014:  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, contact JVVreservations@jumeirah.com or +39 06 48 78 81.
