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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

This was my favorite experience of my entire 10-day trip to Italy. First, you have to understand that the Tuscan countryside, Chianti region, is BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL and not to be missed if you are in Florence. The tour meets in the heart of Florence and then the 2 guides take the group in a small bus to a charming, small villa in the Chianti countryside where you get to practice riding the Vespa scooters. Our group was small, 5 people, and I was the only one with any experience on a scooter. No problem the guides very quickly taught us ride with confidence. The Vespas are easier to ride than a bicycle! Yes, really. Were rode for hours on charming, small roads. Around every corner is another amazing view of vineyards, villas, monasteries, etc. The wineries we visited, including Ruffino, were interesting and beautiful. Our guides, Andreas and Lorenzo were always nearby, watching us ride and were so knowledgeable about the reqion and the winemaking process. Andreas had grown up on a nearby farm! After the ride, we enjoyed a very nice lunch, included some delicious cheeses, balsamic vinegar and 2 Chianti Classico wines from Ruffino. The 6-7 hour duration of the tour was long enough for some, but I could've jumped on the Vespa again for the rest of the day the tour was THAT GOOD! Regardless of whether you have any experience on a scooter, this tour is not to be missed. If I go back to Florence, I will do it again and recommend it to everyone who goes.
