What You Can Expect

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

We spent 6 weeks through the Mediterranean and Italy. This was the stand out highlight of our time away. Stephano, our guide, was brilliant. The sights we saw, the countryside we travelled and the lunch at the end were all brilliant. Our convoy consisted of 2 vespas, and 2 fiat 500s. Can't recommend it enough.

By far the most fun tour we had during our time in Italy! We originally booked the Vespa tour. Before the tour, you are trained on driving the Vespa. If the guide does not feel you can handle the Vespa, you will ride in a vintage Fiat. Do not feel bad if the guide feels you cannot handle the Vespa, as he knows where you will be driving, and believe me, if you are not used to driving a Vespa or something similar, you should not try driving one on this tour. None in our group ended up driving the Vespa.....thank goodness! We drove, or rode, in the vintage Fiat and had the time of our lives. There was one couple on the Vespa, the rest of us following in the Fiats. The guide, Chris, was fantastic and so much fun! He made the tour what it was! Chris lead the group in one of the Fiats. We drove through the hills surrounding Florence, stopping several times for photos, or just to admire the beautiful views. At the end of the tour, we stopped at a wonderful place for dinner, which included wine, cheese and meats. It was truly one of those experiences we will always look back on as being our best memory of Italy.
