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. If available, you will either ride double with a partner or on the back of the guide’s scooter. 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.

What a great trip! I had never ridden a scooter and was a little hesitant but got the hang of it once out on the paved road I'm 54 years old. I was glad that our group turned out to only be 7 people too. Our guides, Francesco and Giacomo sp? were patient and very knowledgable about the surrounding area. The winery tour was great. We did stop two times while riding, but wish there was a couple of more stops to take photos. The countryside was beautiful and I wanted to capture that with more photos. The dinner was fabulous, great food! The wine tasting was not a typical wine was sampling two wines during dinner. Overall, it was well worth the money spent!

The tour guides were informative and spoke English very well. The ride was filled with breathtaking views of the region that pictures cannot do justice. Well worth the price of admission!

After spending time in Rome, Florence, and Venice, the Vespa Wine Tour was by far my favorite experience. Every second of the tour was amazing, and I cannot put into words how beautiful the views were. The wine tasting with Micha sorry if that's misspelled! was beyond enjoyable-- great wine paired with amazing, local cheeses. Francesco, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and kept things very interesting. Lastly, thank you to Eliseo for keeping us safe! I would consider this tour a must for anyone visiting Florence, even if you only have a short time in the city. I would do it again in a heartbeat :

We had a blast on this tour! This was a great combo for my husband and me. He loved driving the Vespa and I enjoyed seeing the beautiful Chianti region, going on a wine tour (tasting was after driving the Vespa so drivers weren't impaired) and having an amazing lunch. Our guides were great!
