What You Can Expect

Vespa Small Group Day Trip to the Chianti Wine Region

Vespa Tour in the Chianti

Meet your guide in central Florence, and hop aboard a minivan with your group that will transport you to the Tuscan hills. Once outside of the city, begin with a safety briefing and orientation to ensure that you feel comfortable riding before you hit the road. This small group tour is limited to 15 people to keep the experience as intimate as possible.

Then saddle up on your single- or double-seater Vespa and begin your ride along the scenic hillside, with stops at charming towns along the way. Your guide will lead you to a castle for a relaxing lunch, including tastings of famous Chianti wines and fine olive oils, all locally produced.

After satisfying your taste buds, you’ll head back toward Florence, enjoying the fresh air and panoramic views before your Vespa tour concludes.

Please note
: You must present a valid drivers license, but do not need a motorcycle license. Children 12-18 years can ride as a passenger. It is highly recommended that you have previous driving experience on a Vespa, scooter or motorcycle. (See the Safety Notice below.)

Very very fun! We were met bet enthusiastic tour guide. We were taken in a mini bus and told about the area. you will ride Vespas all over the country side. We stopped at beautiful views and gorgeous wineries for tours. So well worth every euro spent. A lot of time riding and there is a guide in front of the group and in the back of the group. When you get back to the meeting point winery you are given a Italian feast in a beautiful room. Event a tshirts which is fun So fun especially if you are trying to impress your 20 year old kids

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 tasting....it 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 :
