Overview

Soak up the beauty, history, and delicacies of the Tuscan countryside on a full-day Vespa tour from Florence to the villas of Artimino and Poggio a Caiano, magnificent estates built for the powerful Medici family that ruled Florence during the Renaissance. Feel like a grand duke or duchess as you taste wine and gourmet bites produced at the UNESCO World Heritage site and savor a typical Tuscan lunch among the gorgeous scenery.
  • Full-day Vespa tour to two Medici villas from Florence
  • Visit the UNESCO-listed Artimino Estate
  • Enjoy wine tasting and a Tuscan-style lunch surrounded by gorgeous scenery
  • Visit the Medici villa of Poggio a Caiano
  • Soak up the famous beauty of the Tuscan countryside
  • Ride in style aboard Italy's favorite scooter
Meet your guide in central Florence in the morning, and climb aboard a Vespa scooter to ride to the first villa in true Italian style. Travel through a landscape of rolling hills, olive groves, and vineyards on the way to the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Artimino Estate, built by renowned architect Bernardo Buontalenti around 1600 as a hunting retreat for Ferdinando I de' Medici.

When you arrive, admire Artimino’s well-preserved exterior and see why it earned the nickname ‘Villa of the 100 Chimneys.’ Learn about the estate’s history and see unique original features like historic wine barrels and a girarrosto, or roaster, designed by Leonardo da Vinci. Take in panoramic views from the side terrace, and then relax by the pool for a tasting of wines and other products straight from the estate’s vineyards and farms. Enjoy la dolce vita ('the sweet life') as you savor famous regional flavors with a light Tuscan-style lunch.

In the afternoon, hop back on your Vespa for an open-air joyride along the surrounding winding roads and hillsides. Stop in the charming town of Poggio a Caiano to visit another historic villa occupied by generations of Medici grands dukes and other illustrious Tuscan families. After your full-day taste of regal country life, return to the original departure point in Florence in the late afternoon.
