Full description
Meet at the centrally located garage for your introduction to one of the 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.

    Alex was magnificent! The experience was lovely and the adventure was once in a lifetime. Our guide Alex, He was patient and kind, funny and knowledgeable...! What can I say, I am so glad we did this event. Do yourself a favor and book this trip. We would have never traveled outside Florence and seen the beautiful countryside in October if it wasn't for this tour. 10 stars!

    As to say, you won't be in Florence but outside of it and that just makes it even better. You'll get several panoramic views of Florence, cruise around little beautiful country roads with a guide at the top of their game. We had an amazing experience, the food setting was just perfect after our rounds and the vespas always put a smile on your face. Props to Christian!! Totally worth every minute of it!

    We would recommend the tour to everyone! It was so fun exploring Florence and the countryside around it! There was also no need to be afraid at all, since before the start of the tour it was explained exactly how to operate the Vespas. In addition, everyone was allowed to do a short test drive. We made a few stops (for example on a wine plantation or a viewpoint over the whole of Florence), where there was always the opportunity for photos (our ambitious and friendly guide Chris always had suitable photo ideas ...). At lunchtime we were served pasta, starters and Chianti in a beautiful, shady, private place with an impressive view ... it was really delicious! Overall, this tour - reinforced by our personable guide Chris - was definitely one of the best ideas of our trip!
