Zip along the country roads of Tuscany by Vespa, on a day trip from Montecatini. After a transfer to Florence, you’ll meet a guide and pick up a scooter. Ride solo or hop on behind one of the tour escorts to travel through the idyllic Chianti region, stopping at a farm for a wine tasting and lunch. Age restrictions apply: Drivers must be over 18, and passengers over 13 years old.
Leave Piazza Italia in Montecatini between 7:30am and 7:45am, and travel to the Florence train station. Here, you’ll put on your helmet and pick up your classic Vespa.
Start with a short practice session to get used to the scooter. If you don’t feel confident enough to ride it on your own, just hop on behind one of the tour escorts. Then, follow your guide out of the city, onto the country roads that wind through the Tuscan hills.
Pass through small medieval villages, admiring the famously beautiful countryside as you zip around the roads with ease. Halfway through the day, you’ll take a break at a traditional farm to enjoy a wine tasting and light lunch.
Make your way back to the train station in Florence to return your Vespa, then hop inside your transfer vehicle for the ride back to Montecatini. Your day trip ends back at the start point.
