Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide in central Florence, and hop aboard a minivan with your group that will transport you to the Tuscan hills. Once outside of the city, begin with a safety briefing and orientation to ensure that you feel comfortable riding before you hit the road. This small group tour is limited to 15 people to keep the experience as intimate as possible.

Then saddle up on your single- or double-seater Vespa and begin your ride along the scenic hillside, with stops for photo opportunities and the guided visit of two wineries. Your guide will lead you to a castle for a relaxing lunch, including tastings of famous Chianti wines and fine olive oils, all locally produced.

After satisfying your taste buds, you’ll head back toward Florence, enjoying the fresh air and panoramic views before your Vespa tour concludes.

Please note: You must present a valid drivers license, but do not need a motorcycle license. Children 12-18 years can ride as a passenger. It is highly recommended that you have previous driving experience on a Vespa, scooter or motorcycle.

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

We had a great time on this tour during our recent visit to Florence. The team, Johnny and Claudia, were so hospitable, informative and fun. Claudia was so patient trying to teach me how to ride a vespa, which I eventually gave up in favor of letting my boyfriend do all the work :). They let us and several others in our group switch to riding together without a fuss, which I really appreciated. Once we were on the road it was so fun and easy and we had a beautiful time riding through and stopping at various spots in Tuscany. The wine tasting and lunch was delicious and a great way to end the experience before traveling back to town. Will recommend this experience to others and hopefully take the tour again during our next visit.

We decided on a whim to add this the next day when we had the afternoon free. What a great decision. Just so much fun to get out of Florence and see the countryside, taste wine, eat dinner with new friends, ride Vespas. Just a great time. Erica, Niccolo and Viola were great. Niccolo's explanation of the wine cellar and barrels was extremely illuminating. I have never knows so much about Chianti in my life. GO DO THIS - You won't regret it. (Only nit...trial rides on gravel are a bit difficult for many drivers...they might consider paving the test area.)

My wife and I enjoyed this attraction, but it did take a lot longer than we had expected. There was time used to shuttle us to the location and time to train our group on riding the vespas. The tour time started at 9:30 and was completed close to 4pm. The tastings were done after the ride, and we did not do a tasting at the winery we rode to. The meal after the ride was really good!

Do NOT Take this Tour

We booked this tour and were very excited. The day of the tour it was a light rain so they CANCELLED the tour and offered us a BUS tour. We did not want to take the bus tour and they would not give us a REFUND. After working with Viator, they sent a message saying they never cancel this tour and offer the program no matter what. BUT, this was not the case. We were unable to reschedule as we were leaving Florence the next day. The operator was RUDE and told us the BUS tour was the same thing. Not what we expected from this experience. Don't sign up unless you are willing to risk your money or want to take a bus tour. We were one of 4 couples all stuck dealing with them and are still waiting for our refund.

We LOVED our vespa tour so so much! We were on our honeymoon and met great people and had wonderful tour guides. My husband had driven a motorcycle only a few times and had no issue on the vespa. I rode on the back. It was perfect.
