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!

Wow! Julian was delightful. His knowledge of Florence and patience with all of us, keeping us together through the back roads was exceptional. The trip was fun, beautiful views and great food when we got our destination. My husband would say it was the highlight of our Italy trip. I will certainly add more adventures with your company on our next trip back. Fun group, fun tour!

This tour is a MUST do if you want to experience a great Florence lifestyle by filtering through the cobbled streets on a Vespa and find yourself within minutes outside the city looking back and the stunning scenery.

Our guide, Angel was great and very passionate and knowledgable about the local area, once on the vespas we rode through the Tuscan Hills following the gorgeous Fiat 500 a real head turner where we had an awesome traditional Tuscan lunch.

The tour group were great making friends over lunch with fellow travellers from all over the world.

Would recommend this to anyone who would like to ride a Vespa and have a great lunch in a perfect setting.
