Vintage Vespa Tour


Description

RIDE A VINTAGE VESPA IN THE HILLS OF TUSCANY!

This is your chance to be an Italian for a couple hours and enjoy the sheer fun of riding a Vespa through the Tuscan countryside!

Meet at our centrally located garage for your introduction to one of our perfectly restored Vintage Vespas. Your tour leader will fit you with a helmet and give some basic instructions and safety information before setting off for this exhilarating ride through the countryside.

Leave Florence in a small swarm of Vespas and head for the freedom of the hills, following the tour leader along the riverside and a tree lined avenue to a famous viewpoint. After posing for photos with your Vespa and the amazing skyline of Florence, enjoy a bit of culture with a quick visit inside one of Florence's oldest churches.

Feeling more confident now with your Vespa, it's time for some more challenging roads as you leave the crowds and traffic behind and take to the narrow lanes between castles and villas, through ancient olive groves and vineyards. There are plenty of stops for photos and if two people are sharing a Vespa, there's plenty of chance to take turns.

When it's time for a break, enjoy a magnificent view from a private terrace and sample some of Tuscany's best prosciutto and cheese with a glass of Chianti. Then be prepared to turn some heads as you ride expertly back into the city as you and your Vintage Vespa become one of the tourist sights of Florence.

Thanks to Angel I had the most amazing day. Vespa riding brought me right into the life of an Italian. Traversing the streets of Florence and then climbing through the hills of Florence was a fantastic experience in itself. However, Angel also brought history and stories to the table. He was always available to help and ensure we all had a memorable tour. Do it, you'll love it!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the Florence Vespa Tour with Lunch. Our host Angel was amazing, he shared so many interesting historical facts about Florence and kept us all safe during the riding portion of the tour. I'd highly recommend this activity to anyone.

We really liked our tour guide, Angel. He knows English and Spanish very well, something that made the tours very enjoyable. The tours are very entertaining and you see parts of Florence very nice, I strongly recommend it.

My husband booked this tour to get me to stop talking about wanting a Vespa. It back-fired! I was so excited to do the tour while in Florence and it certainly did not disappoint. After a short practice session, we headed through the town and up to a monastery in the hills overlooking the city. From there Fabian took us through the Tuscan countryside to a beautiful olive grove where we experienced the views and were given a history of the region in Fabian's unique style. From there we jumped on our Vespas and headed off for lunch. While sitting outside at beautiful harvest tables overlooking Tuscan vineyards and olive groves, we were served charcuterie boards, homemade pasta and a taste of local wines. All before heading back to the city after a glorious day, and the tour that will make this my most memorable trip to date. If you have the chance to take this trip, and with Fabian as your guide, do not pass it up. Fabian's energy and zest for life was a highlight and truly made it a special experience.

We were able to make our reservation online the same day. After a quick orientation and basic instruction we were off through town and into the Tuscan countryside. Winding down the roadways amongst vineyards and olive groves. Stopped for dinner at a beautiful estate with pasta, bruschetta, wine and espresso. We made our way back through town feeling very confident in traffic (maybe due to the wine). Then back to the shop. This was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Our guide, Angel, was excellent. A wealth of history, local local flavor and great sense of humor. He truly made the excursion memorable. Would highly recommend this tour.

Our guide Angel, no better ambassador, comforting, informative and fun. Friendly and diverse "scooter gang" mates. Views and stop overs you would only hope to see. Plenty of local wine, olive, meat, cheeses, Bruschetta. Endless fresh pasta meal. 5 hours on a vespa! An absolute MUST DO authentic Italy experience!
