Full description

Explore the beautiful countryside of Tuscany on a vintage Vespa tour from Florence. Pass through the narrow streets to admire the pretty castles, villas, olive groves, and more. Take photos at the stops before tasting the region’s best prosciutto ad cheese accompanied by a glass of Chianti.

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 you 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 to 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.

    The best experience! I cannot recommend it enough. I was taught how to use the Vespa and felt safe the entire time. It was a blast and the stops were perfect for pictures. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. It was a wonderful experience and a highlight of my trip.

    Riding a Vespa under the Tuscan sun was a highlight of our Italy holiday. GYG Alex & Christian were excellent & professional in their guidance. My partner & I chose this adventure to celebrate our 60th Birthdays. Neither of us had ever ridden a motorbike before and both found it exhilarating & fun! Instructions & lesson were easy and quick. Driving through the Tuscan countryside was scenic, & stopping for pasta dinner in the private vineyard - olive grove was awesome. We gave this review a 4 star due to Vespa mechanical failure. My partner's Vespa had problems with the choke & stalling (not driver error) - that Alex was attentive to fixing as were several fellas in our group, and unfortunately my Vespa's gas line broke suddenly upon our return when we were half a mile from the garage. Christian was directly behind me in the Fiat and stopped to help. I jumped in the Fiat for the remainder ride back and the fellas went back for the Vespa. No one else in our group had mechanical issues.

    We had the most amazing time with Chris and Stefano! They not only organised a way for us to do the trip (even with my sister’s missing driver license at home) and then allowed her to go in the Fiat after she wasn’t comfortable on the Vespa. We had the best time ever! Can’t recommend it highly enough!! Wishing we had more days in Florence to do it again! The food was also amazing and would highly recommend you check out their cooking classes too! Such a lovely way to spend the morning - CHECK IT OUT! Love from Ireland!
