Full description
Enjoy the freedom of the road on a 3-hour tour of Florence and its surrounding hills by classic Vespa moped. Discover the city like a local - but with more style.

Meet at the tour operator's office and hop on your scooter to ride to Piazzale Michelangelo. Enjoy panoramic views of the domes and spires of the “Cradle of the Renaissance” and see the sunshine gleaming on the River Arno.

Continue to San Miniato Convent in the Tuscan hills and experience a piece of medieval history up-close. Next, go to the picturesque town of Fiesole, just a few minutes outside the city center. This small town overlooks Florence and its surrounding hills and boasts one of the most spectacular views you will ever see. Learn a little about the Roman history of Fiesole, home to an original Roman amphitheater that is still in use to this day.

Exhilarating Adventure around Florence and Chianti

We had an amazing few hours exploring the outskirts of Florence and the Chianti region with our drivers Hamid and Luca, both very knowledgeable and great company. This was definitely the best way to get a wonderful view of the city and then enjoy the Chianti countryside. We booked as passengers, with two drivers, and I strongly suggest this is the best way to enjoy the trip as driving yourself requires high competency on a Vespa and you then need to focus on the road and other drivers rather than be able to enjoy the scenery. Thanks to Hamid and Luca for a fantastic few hours and highly skilled driving and commentary.

It was more than we ever expected. We saw the awesome view from two different spots. Luca was great. He obviously knew what he was doing, he trusted us with 5’clock traffic,(thought I was gonna die like three times) but my husband did a amazing job keeping up with him. He really nice to talk too, it was just to good.

Tour was heaps of fun,our fantastic guide Gianmarco did not rush us at viewing points so we could soak up the stunning sights of Florence,traffic is not as bad as it looks Gianmarco rode at a comfortable speed through traffic and always made sure we were alltogether.Great experience would highly recommend doing it.
