Overview

This is the original VESPA TOUR in Tuscany, the first shared Vespa tour in ITALY, with more than 10 years and more than 25.000 happy clients that are now our best and most enthusiastic ambassadors! Join the Italian Vespa club and live the Dolce Vita!

Drive along scenic and silent country roads through the hillside of Tuscany on a Vespa admiring the sights, smells and sounds of the Chianti region!

Our comfortable minivan will take you to the countryside, and will be available in case of any need during all the tour. With a short ride, you will be taken just outside of the busy and bustling city center. First you will receive an orientation conducted by an English speaking trained professional, ensuring the safe operation of the Vespas before we head out for our engaging and enjoyable ride (see notes).

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.

The ride, along scenic country roads will offer splendid views of the rolling hillside, vineyards and olive groves, little medieval churches and ancient wineries. Some stops for photo opportunities will be made along the way.

You will visit a famous winery, producing some of the most appreciated Chianti wines, and enjoy a guided tour of their cellars, where you will learn all the secrets of wine production.

You will end the Vespa ride at a boutique winery, learning their approach on wine making ending then your memorable experience with a typical Tuscan lunch (or dinner, depending on which departure you choose) that will be served with a wine and olive oil tasting.

Service is operated with original 50cc PIAGGIO VESPA or ZIP scooters. We also provide APE CALESSINO, also called Tuscany Tuk Tuk (3 wheeled Vespa, driven by a tour leader), as alternative if you do not feel comfortable driving.

Mileage: about 19 miles round-trip (30 kms)

Terrain: Mostly paved countryroads with little traffic.

Difficulty: Easy. Average speed 25 km/h (15 mls/h). Minivan support always guaranteed
