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!

The Vespa tour was one of the highlights of our visit to Florence. It's a great way to see the Tuscany countryside passing through the narrow streets outside the city. My wife and I had a blast. Includes lunch at the end of the trip at a resort surrounded by olive trees. What a great setting. It should be part of anyone's agenda while in Venice.

Completely amazing ! We were part of a group of Vespa's and cars starting in the centre of Florence and out through the Florence hills. The bikes looked stunning, our tour leader was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to and the food and setting for lunch was awesome. The best part - driving back into Florence with confidence and seeing all our fellow tourists waving and taking pictures LOL !

This was fun. Unfortunately it rained, which is no fault of the tour company, but could maybe supply rain jackets. The 3 hours for this tour was perfect, and the afternoon meal was amazing.
