Choose Your Ride

You will meet at a centrally located meeting point and head straight to our garage to receive an introduction and choose one of our perfectly restored Vintage Vespas. Then the tour leader will fit each guest with a helmet and give some basic instructions and safety information. Once everybody is feeling a little more confident, it’s time to bite the bullet and get out there!

This is the only vintage Vespa tour that departs from Florence and our scooters are the only vintage automatic Vespas with no gear

You will set off (slowly at first) and head for the freedom of the hills, following the tour leader along the riverside and a tree-lined avenue to a famous viewpoint. From here, you’ll be able to look out and enjoy the incredible panoramic views – and take plenty of snaps to show off to your friends once you return home. Views on Tuscany Vespa tours don’t get much better than this!

Enjoy a Spot of Culture

After posing for photos with your beloved vehicle and the amazing skyline of Florence at the viewpoint, get your culture hat on and enjoy a quick visit inside one of the region’s oldest churches. This spot is also abundant with photo opportunities.

Dare to Speed Up

After taking things relatively slow and steady on the first half of the ride, it’s time to try some more challenging roads. The group will leave the crowds and traffic behind and take to the narrow lanes between castles and villas, through ancient olive groves and around vineyards. For those looking to experience the real raw beauty of Italy from its seldom-visited backroads, Tuscany Vespa tours really are your best bet.

Taste Tuscany

You’ll have certainly worked up an appetite after your exhilarating ride through Italy’s beautiful streets and back lanes, and luckily for you, the next part of the tour features a delicious Tuscan treat. Admire the magnificent views from our country estate and sample some of Tuscany's best prosciutto and cheese with a glass of Chianti.

The Final Stretch

Tuscany Vespa tours wouldn’t be complete without a final farewell ride, so hop back onto your vehicle like a real expert and ride back to the garage feeling more Italian than ever before.


Meeting point is in front of Biblioteca Nazionale (National Library) in Piazza dei Cavalleggeri. Look for your guide holding a Walkabout sign.

Frequently Asked Questions

Unfortunately we cannot allow children to ride as passengers on the Vespas. Minimum age to be on the tour is 18.

Yes! Two people can share a Vespa and take it in turns to drive, or one can drive and the second person can simply enjoy the ride.

You don't have to have ridden a motorbike before but it would be an advantage.

A valid car licence is sufficient and you must be at least 18 years of age.

We run our tours with any number of people, rain or shine as we don't want a little bit of rain to ruin the chance for you to experience the beautiful places we take you to. If in extreme circumstances we have to cancel a tour, we will refund the price paid for the tour.

Definitely! If you would prefer an alternative to the menu we have chosen, please tell your tour leader and he/she will telephone ahead to arrange it.

We do not organise hotel pick-ups for difficulties with parking and scheduling, but our meeting in front in Piazza dei Cavalleggeri is very central and should be easy to get to. We are just in front of the Biblioteca Nazionale (National Library) from which many hotels are located within easy walking distance of. Otherwise a taxi (you could ask your hotel to book it for you) would be the fastest option, dropping you off right at the entrance of the Biblioteca Nazionale (National Library).

We always love to hear feedback about the tour! You can leave us a message on our Facebook page wall (find us at Walkabout Florence) or find us on TripAdvisor by searching for the Walkabout Florence Tours.

Driving in Italy can be a little different, so just like driving anywhere in the world you must be alert and vigilant and follow the tour leader's instructions.

Once you have made your reservation and made the payment by credit card through our secure website, you will be able to print the information or save it to your mobile device to bring with you to the check-in.

If riders get separated from the tour leader, for example at traffic lights, the tour leader will wait in the first safe place until all the Vespas are together again.

If you would like to change the day of your tour, you may do so (depending on availability) up to 24 hours before the start of the tour with no extra fees.

You must bring your driving licence. Make sure you bring your camera!

Remember to bring something waterproof if there is a chance of rain! Don't wear flip flops or high heels if you are new to riding the Vespa, flat sensible shoes will be easier.

We offer a full refund to any cancellation up to 24 hours before the departure time of the tour.

Perfect day in Chianti area.
Perfect day in Chianti area.
We enjoyed the whole experience, the beautiful views of the countryside, the visits to the wineries, the excellent wines sampled and the accompanying local delicacies. Lunch was excellent and in a beautiful location. Our guide, Stefano, was good humoured, informative and friendly and gave a really good commentary and explanations. A superb day out from Florence, we did not travel in an off road vehicle as advertised but a very comfortable air-conditioned mini-bus driven very carefully on the country roads. This is a very relaxing and enjoyable day out that would be hard to arrange yourself especially given the wine consumed!

Best group tour we have been to to date. The wineries that you get taken to are breathtaking. The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and presented the information in a fun way. Goes without saying but the wine was also very tasty.
Stephano our guide was superb. Most memorable was thought talk in the middle of a vineyard. The Vespas were quirky-cool. The tour was extensive covering all aspects of Firenze. Our lunch in teh country side was simple and perfect. What a wonderful host Stehano was, personable, thoughtful and patient.
Great Tour!
Great Tour!
The tour was very cool and our guide Stephano was great! We were able to get a good look at the countryside around Florence while also getting a feel for the city center. Stephano took us to some "out of the way" spots that are not on every tour itinerary. Lunch was very nice and in a beautiful setting. Stephano knows how to take a good picture too! Thank you Stephano for your flexibility and knowledge!
Great fun, brilliant day out

A wonderful day driving first through Florence and then out into the lovely countryside, all the time being carefully supervised and guided by Alex from a lovely old Fiat 500, we stopped for lunch and the fact that my Wife cannot eat Garlic didn't faze them a separate meal was made for her and it added to the brilliant day out. There was an initial training on the Vespa which covered everything and at no time did I feel in any danger whilst we were out. Thank you Alex and team, we thoroughly enjoyed our day.

We absolutely had the best experience renting scooters and riding into the countryside. Our guide was the best! He was personable and knowledgeable and we felt confident in his lead. We would highly recommend this tour! Walkabout Florence and Alex were the best!!!
Please do this tour!

I actually did this tour July 2015 and was going through my old photo albums and decided to look it up on TA to tell everyone how amazing it was. I didn't drive the before but rode in the back and was able to snap photos along the way. The scenery is beautiful and you also drive thru cute little towns. All while following your guide in a tiny little vintage car. They stop at a church overlooking Florence and give you time to snap awesome photos. You also go to a lovely castle like building on a hill and are treated to a generous, delicious, freshly prepared meal. Was a great day.
Most memorable part of our trip to Italy!

We had such a great time on this tour. Even with no prior Vespa experience, we were able to pass our test drive and get out to explore the countryside around Florence. Christian was a fun, knowledgeable tour guide and we always felt safe navigating the roads. The mealwas delicious and in a picturesque setting! Book this tour, it is well worth it!

Starting off - driving the Vespa around the Tuscan hills and the view of Florence was the highlight of my trip. The Vespa has a bit of a learning curve - my two brothers had to ride in the fiat because they couldn’t get it down quick enough. It helps to have some prior motorcycle or motor bike experience however I don’t have that experience so wouldn’t say it’s required. Stefano was an AMAZING tour guide, full of knowledge, you can tell he knows what he’s talking about and that it excites him.
