What to Expect
Your Vespa tour begins in central Florence, where you greet your guide and get to grips with your Vespa scooter. Following a safety briefing, hop onto your ride, either as the driver or passenger, and set off toward the Tuscan countryside. Admire scenic vistas, as you travel toward Chianti to taste wine and tour the cellars of two distinguished wineries. Then, revitalize with a traditional Tuscan lunch at a castle, before soaking up more panoramic views on the way back to your original departure point in Florence.

  • Previous experience is not required but advantageous and highly advised. The tour operator reserves the right of final judgement in client participation of actual scooter driving or in client being a passenger, or to discontinue scooter use at any point of the tour. Any participant unable to drive scooters safely may ride double with a partner, or on the guide’s scooter if available or continue the tour on board one of our support vehicles (the Tuscany Tuk Tuk or the minivan, depending which is available) if unable to be a safe passenger as well. No refund will be granted in this case. Our first and foremost concern is everyone's safety
  • This tour option entitles client to ride the original Piaggio Vespas, but Piaggio Zip scooters (which are lighter and easier to ride) are available
  • A third-party insurance for civil liability is included in the price of the tour. Please note that clients will be given the option to subscribe an additional insurance against vehicle damages
  • Please let us know in advance any special need or impaired mobility of the clients, and we will do our best to accommodate them

  • Near public transportation
  • Not recommended for travelers with back problems
  • Most travelers can participate
  • RAIN POLICY: The tour runs rain or shine (but please see below). The tour departure will never be cancelled due to rain. We will do our best to proceed with the tour, avoiding the rain and thus possibly carrying out the tour with our minivan until and if the rain should stop and street conditions will guarantee a safe ride. If it does not stop raining, the entire tour will be conducted in the safety and comfort of the minivan. Guest options on rainy days: 1) Proceed with the tour hoping for clearing weather – PARTIAL RIDE or NO RIDE due to heavy RAIN Customers can decide to proceed with the tour hoping for clearing weather with the understanding that if scooters 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. We will do our best to get you on a scooter, weather permitting. 2) Rain check (of the same amount clients paid) to be used the following day or at any other time, subject to availability. The Rain check is a voucher given to client. The voucher is transferable and may be sold or given to others to use at a future date and lasts up to 1 year from date. It has a value that can be possible used in any other tour provided by our company. Please note that clients' safety and comfort are of utmost priority, and proper rain gear is mandatory for guests choosing to "ride in the rain". We ask clients to be at the meeting point 15 minutes before the tour departure, to check the weather conditions and choose accordingly. No-shows will not be refunded.
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 15 travelers
Cancellation Policy
For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.

This was a great time. It was fun, safe, organized, and interesting. Our guides were locals that knew lots of details of wine making and olives. We rode two to our Vespa which work well for us, but several other couples rode their own and got along fine. We highly recommend this

I was nervous about this as I have never ridden a Vespa, now I'm shopping for one!! Our tour guide Nic (and the rest of the staff) do a fantastic job of making everyone comfortable on the Vespa before you set off. Well guided with lots of support, amazing views, and (at the end)
