About the Supplier

Florencetown offers authentic Italian experiences through its unique tours and activities. Their tours are interactive and focus on exclusivity and personalized attention.

Here is the plan...

Board a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and get transported to the starting location of the tour. The journey takes about 15 minutes. You will then undergo approx. 40 minutes of training by a professional before setting out. If you do not feel comfortable driving, you can choose to ride with an experienced guide. A driving test in an enclosed space will be held to understand if everyone has enough confidence and safety on the Vespa to drive on open roads.

Drive for about 2 hours taking in the stunning scenery of the road to Chianti. Drive along quiet and scenic country roads offering splendid views of the rolling hillside and visiting different small medieval villages in the heart of Tuscany. 

Enjoy a guided tour of a famous winery, producing some of the most appreciated Chianti wines, and learn all the secrets of wine production.

The tour ends at a boutique winery where you will tuck into a typical Tuscan lunch (or dinner, depending on which departure you choose) that will be served with a wine and olive oil tasting.

Hop on to your ride once more, driving on for more than 1 hour. Hand over your Vespa and board the minivan for a 15-minute ride back to Florence.
