Choose Your Vespa

Your unforgettable adventure begins at a convenient meeting point in Florence, where your friendly tour leader will take you to a garage filled with traditional Vespas. After everyone in your group has chosen their favorite, your guide will fit each guest with a helmet and go over instructions on how to ride, along with safety information.

Not to worry if you’re feeling a little insecure on your Vespa, your group will start off slowly, so you’ll have plenty of time to get the hang of things!

See Florence from Above

Now that you’ve been given a Vespa tutorial, it’s time to set off for the ride of a lifetime. Follow your guide as you ease in slowly, riding along Florence’s tranquil riverside and down an enchanting, tree-lined avenue. Your guide will lead you to the first stop of the day, a breathtaking, panoramic view of Florence. Admire the cityscape and snap some photos with your gorgeous Vespa against Florence’s remarkable skyline.

Before hitting the road again, pop into one of the area’s oldest churches: San Miniato al Monte. This historic church is stunning, so you’ll want to keep your camera out for this one!

Cruise to the Countryside

Now that you’ve had a chance to get used to your Vespa, it’s time to trade in the city streets for the winding, narrow roads of the Tuscan countryside. Zip past ancient castles and picturesque villas as you ride along the hidden backroads of Tuscany’s iconic, rolling hills. Continue to cruise through ancient olive groves and splendid vineyards as you discover Italy’s raw, natural beauty.

Dine on Tuscan Food and Wine

All of that exploring is sure to make you hungry! Follow your tour leader to a gorgeous countryside estate, where you’ll indulge in decadent Tuscan treats. With the backdrop of Tuscany’s extraordinary landscape, enjoy some of the region's best prosciutto and cheese. Of course, your meal will also include a glass of delicious, local Chianti.

Take the Scenic Route Back to Florence

After snacking on Tuscan delicacies, it’s time to hit the road for one last joy ride. By now, you’re riding like a pro, so you can really enjoy the magnificent views as you cruise through Tuscany’s enchanting hills. Follow your guide back through the city, feeling (and looking) like a true Italian!
