Drive along scenic and silent country roads through the hillside of Tuscany on a Vespa admiring the sights, smells and sounds of the Chianti region!

A comfortable minivan will take you from Florence to the countryside and will be available throughout the tour in case of any need.  After a short ride just outside of the city center, you will receive an orientation conducted by an English speaking trained professional, ensuring the safe operation of the Vespas before heading out for an engaging and enjoyable small group ride.  A driving test in an enclosed space will be held to make sure everyone has enough confidence and safety on the Vespa to drive on open roads.

The ride itself, along  scenic country roads, will offer splendid views of the rolling hillside, vineyards and olive groves, little medieval churches and ancient wineries.  Some stops for photos will be made along the way.  You will visit a famous winery, producing some of the most appreciated Chianti wines and enjoy a guided tour of their cellars, where you will learn all the secrets of wine production.  You will end the Vespa ride at a boutique winery, learning its approach on wine making and savoring a memorable experience with a typical Tuscan meal that will be served with a wine and olive oil tasting.

  • Guest options on rainy days:  1) Proceed with the tour hoping for clearing weather – Partial Vespa or No Vespa due to heavy rain; customers can decide to proceed with the tour hoping for clearing weather with the understanding that if Vespas are not ridden at all due to rain, or if the Vespa tour is dramatically abbreviated due to rain, customers will NOT be granted any refund or discount.  Guides will do their best to get you on a Vespa, weather permitting.  Or 2) Rain check to be used the following day or at any other time, subject to availability; a voucher given to client which is transferable and may be sold or given to others to use at a future date and lasts up to 1 year from original tour date, with a value that can be used on any other tour provided by operator.
