Florence Vespa Tour: Tuscan Hills and Italian Cuisine

Small-Group Florence Vespa Tour: Tuscan Hills and Italian Cuisine

It’s not just a cliché; Vespas – the famed Italian scooter romanticized for decades through countless movies, ads and postcards – are truly everywhere in Florence. The city’s narrow streets hum with these shiny scooters, confirming that the best way to navigate them is on two wheels! Follow the lead of knowing locals by hopping on one yourself for a small-group tour.

Meet your guide in the center of town, collect your helmet and get acquainted with your mode of transport -- an original Vintage PK Vespa (this classic model is no longer in production). After a safety briefing and a few practice sessions to get used to the scooter, you’ll be on your way. Following your attentive guide, take a leisurely drive through Florence’s backstreets before reaching the sweeping boulevards on the outskirts of town.

Stop at the Church of San Miniato al Monte for breathtaking views over Florence and a quick look around inside with your guide. One of the city’s true gems, this beautiful Romanesque church contains a fascinating mish-mash of architecture and art from different eras.

Your tour continues into the vineyard-studded hills of Tuscany, meandering through leafy villages and poppy-filled fields. If you’ve chosen to share your scooter with your traveling companion, there’ll be plenty of breaks to stop and switch drivers, or to simply stretch your legs while admiring the views. On your way back to town, stop at Piazzale Michelangelo, a popular vantage point for gazing over Florence.

The one thing left to do is eat! Before returning your Vespa, sit down with your guide for a relaxing meal on a private terrace. Dishes vary, but will always be typically Tuscan. Expect artistically arranged antipasti like bruschetta with ripe tomatoes, creamy burrata cheese, panzanella salad and cold cuts of meat with fennel. It’s the perfect ending to a perfect day in Tuscany!

After a shaky start neither of us had driven a scooter before and with lots of patience from our tour guide, we headed off for a wonderful trip through the hills. our guide was lovely, the lunch and location was excellent. I would recommend this to anyone who is wanting a little taste of Italy :

Little nervous about this tour when we booked but it was great. Fabian Walkabout Tours got us familiar with the Vespa before setting out and once you are going, it is lots of fun! Once you hit the hills, very scenic views with lots of stops along the way for photos and to check in that everything is ok! Evening break at Walkabout Estate was an unexpected delight - food and wine just a bit since we were driving. Fabian was informative and patient with those of us new to the Vespa experience. Absolutely a must try!

excellent trip. I was a little hesitant the first time I pulled out in the busy traffic and a busy intersection. but the vespa handled beautifully and of course, it got easier the longer I rode it. then the dinner at the taste of Italy school was unexpected.

best wishes, mark and melissa hendrix

This was the best experience we had in Italy, it exceeded our expectations and specially appreciated the lovely lunch in the Tuscan villa. Angel and team are excellent and I would highly recommend it.

SO MUCH FUN! My husband and I and two sons did this our first day in Florence. Fabian was our guide and he was great!!! Only wish we could have had him on other tours! Not only was he entertaining but he was also very patient and made sure that all riders were as safe as possible! I believe he does other tours for Viator, so if possible try to get Fabian! He can speak several languages which was very impressive as well. If I had a daughter I would love to set him up with her. Thank you again Fabian and Viator for a great time!

This is what I chose to do for my birthday. It was simply amazing. We had such a great time. Angel was our guide, a very nice guy that took excellent care of us. Riding the Vespa's were so much fun, I wanted to do it again, but we didn't have time. Lunch was delicious and included a beautiful view while we did it.

I'd do this tour again without a doubt. We'll worth the money. Thanks Angel!

This tour was the highlight of our trip! Our tour guide Fabio was amazing and I would highly suggest doing any tour he does just for the entertainment!! We stopped at great locations, and lunch was fantastic! We loved the farm, Carmellas cooking and Falco the dog :) Do this tour, you won't regret it
