Description

Segway Station was set up to bring the Segway tour experience to Nicosia. It is located at the corner of Aeschylou Street and a small, quaint walking street which includes a coffee shop, a bar and various craft shops. At Segway Station you can find a relaxing cafe/lounge area where you can chill out before and after your tour. 

On your Segway Tour we will show you Old Nicosia as you have never seen it before. Magnificent architecture, traditional alleys and workshops, the haunting green line, and nooks and crannies known only to locals. We will look at Old Nicosia while riding the Segways, which are zero-emission, environmentally friendly, noiseless electric personal transporters that enable you to take in over 2 hours, sights that could otherwise take one or two days to see, under the hot sun.

We will be making brief stops at each landmark to allow for deeper appreciation of the sights, as well as photo opportunities.

Duration: 3 Hours

The tour starts with a comprehensive Segway Training.
The tour includes a refreshment and snack break in the middle. 

Landmarks Include:

-The Archbishop’s Palace and Cathedral

The Archbishops might have lived and travelled in comfort, but a Segway is more fun! The Palace was built by Archbishop Makarios the third, and is a testament to the struggle for independence. 

-Ethnological Museum, (The House of Hadjigeorgakis Kornesios)
Here we will see one of the finest relics of ancient urban architecture, which survived the Ottoman Empire. This building is a true testament to the city’s ancient grandeur.

-Nicosia Checkpoint on Ledra Street, on the Green Line
This checkpoint is an outcome of the Turkish invasion of Cyprus on 20 July 1974. Prior to the opening of the checkpoint there was a barricade running through the street, converted to a checkpoint in April 2008, which then became the sixth crossing which connects the 2 sides.

-Eleftheria Square and Town Hall
Eleftheria Square (Freedom Square) intersects all the main shopping streets of Nicosia, such as Ledra and Onassagorou.

-Hamam Omerye (Turkish baths)
Sometimes the traditional way of doing things is best. The Hamam was built in 1570 and is still in use today, as is Omeriye Mosque. It’s a great place for relaxation and in 2006 it received the Europa Nostra prize for the Conservation of Architectural Heritage.

-Contemporary Art Museum.
The museum is situated at the Old Electric House building, but it looks brand new. Some of the finest contemporary art comes to life as you ride your own technological marvel.

-Famagusta Gate
This is the largest of all the city’s gates. It was built in 1567 by the Venetians, and served travellers entering and leaving the city from the east. It now plays host to art exhibitions and events. 

-Ancient Aquaduct, Venetian Walls and Liberty monument
The Liberty monument was erected in 1973 to commemorate the release of freedom fighters in 1959. It stands next to the Venetian Walls and an ancient aquaduct, in an area offering ideal photo opportunities.

-Art Cafe Square, Kafeneo (coffee shop), Pottery and Glass Workshops

-Churches of Agios Savvas and Panayia Phaneromenis

-Ayios Antonios Church

-The Ancient “Doctor Street”
