Festive fun from Florence
Tuscany Vespa Tour | Oct 2019
Dejan (owner/tour guide/Vespa-whisperer) was engaging and entertaining. Met him at his shop in Florence, from which he drove us in a van 20 min or so outside of Florence to a rustic, charming farmhouse (and accompanying vineyards) in a tiny Villa. We were given a 30 minute tour of the wine cellar and an explanation of how the Chianti was produced, even though we hadn’t signed up for the wine tour. After that part, thankfully, we just were given a quick Vespa tutorial and an assessment of each individual’s Vespa-driving abilities before our 6 Vespas were tooling around the local Tuscan countryside for gorgeous views of vineyards, olive trees and far-off castles.
After being out and about for around 45 min, we headed back to the farmhouse for a hearty communal meal of Italian meats, cheeses, breads and of course pasta, all served with the farmhouse’s wine.
Met some lovely people (including fellow tourists) and highly recommend this full day experience. ...Read more
