What You Can Expect

Vespa Small Group Day Trip to the Chianti Wine Region

Vespa Tour in the Chianti

Depart Florence in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and travel to the Tuscany countryside. The scooter tour will begin with a 30 minute "orientation session" so you can practice on the Vespa scooter until you feel comfortable and ready to go out and conquer the famous Chianti wine region in Tuscany on your own. (It is highly recommended that you have previous driving experience on a Vespa, scooter or motorcycle – please see the Safety Notice below.) Vespa small-group day trip is limited to maximum 10, ensuring you'll receive personalized attention from your guide.

Ride along quiet and scenic country roads offering splendid views of the rolling hillside and visiting different small medieval villages in the heart of Tuscany. Next, you will stop for lunch at a castle to taste Tuscan specialities with a little tasting of some of the most famous Chianti wines and olive oils, locally produced.

Vespas are appropriate for anyone aged 18 and older. You must present a valid drivers license. Note, you do not need a motorcycle license. Children 12-18 years can join the tour as a passenger. Choose from the single scooter option or share with a friend on a double scooter - the choice is yours!

Safety Notice:
Previous driving experience on a Vespa, scooter or motorcycle is highly recommended and highly advantageous. Your safety is the tour guide’s first and foremost concern. The tour guide reserve the right of final judgment in your participation of Vespa-driving at any point during the tour. If the guide determines you are unable to drive your scooter at a safe level, you will not be allowed to continue driving.

However, you might also be required to get off the Vespa all together and ride in the support minivan that follows the tour. No refunds will be granted in these cases.

We had our 14 yr daughter with us and we all had a blast!!! She rode with me and my husband drove a single. A must to see the beautiful Tuscany and Chianti side of Italy. We truly enjoyed the experience and the mini stops in between. Highly recommend! Dinner was wonderful as well.

This is a must do tour!!! So much fun riding through the countyside!! We stopped at a local winery and given a tour of the place. It is so beautiful! Our next stop was in the small town of Greve! Loved it!! Only wish we could have stayed longer to shop. When we got back to base, we were served a beautiful Italian lunch with the local wine!!

This tour makes you feel that you really are in Toscana! It was fantastic!
The food in the end wasn't very good, but everything else was perfect!

This was a great little 4.5 hour run through the Tuscan hills, tour of a winery and a nice lunch back at FlorenceTown site outside Florence. Giacomo, our guide, was engaging, thoughtful and fun. And, as a motorcycle owner, I was amazed at how well the little Vespas did in the hills. Very fun.

What a great way to explore the Chianti Wine region! This tour surpassed all of our expectations, it was fun, adventurous, relaxing, and mesmerizing all at once. The halfway point where you stop in Greve felt so special, and the like lunch/wine tasting at the end was the cherry on top with delicious, fresh food and good wines.
