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.

We went to visit my daughter who was studying in Florence for the semester. She had heard about the vespa tours and signed us up. Definitely out of my comfort zone, but in the end may have been the best part of our trip! Stephano led us around in his fiat and kept a close watch. The views and Stephano were great!

I had so much fun doing this tour that takes you on a lovely trip through the tuscan landscape at the outskirts of Florence. For me it was the first time ever driving a Vespa but it was really easy and the guide was so nice and helpful in explaining how the vespa works and how to drive it. The tour itself was a lot of fun, driving up to the San Benedetto church which presents a magnificent view over the city and from there continuing out on small roads going through the hilly countryside, passing olive gardens and vineyards ending at a lovely country side house where we enjoyed a simple but delicious italian meal while enjoying the view and tasting the local Chianti classico wine. The tour lasted from 2h30 PM until 8 PM - great value for money! Strongly recommend it to couples and solo travelers looking for something out of the ordinary!

This tour was so much fun and one of the highlights of my visit to Florence! Stefano was our guide and made seeing the Florence countryside amazing. When we stopped he was informative about the history of Florence and answered any questions we had. We stopped at a beautiful place for lunch and were served a delicious pasta, bread, cheese, meats! It was all truly amazing!

This was a fantastic half day trip and really got to see some great sights of Florence that were “off the beaten path.” The lunch was delicious and included a pasta with tomato sauce, cold cuts/cheese/bread and bruschetta. We also got to sample some Chianti Classico wine as well. Lovely day with a very informative guide.
