Tuscany Vespa Tour from Florence

€ 149.00

Available March to November
Drive on an authentic Vespa along scenic and silent country roads through the hillside of Tuscany admiring the sights, smells and sounds of the Chianti region!

The first Vespa tour in Italy, with over 10 years of experience and over 25,000 enthusiastic customers, undoubtedly remains the most exciting and carefully planned experience you can find around. Join the Vespa Club, live the Italian Dolce Vita!

Ready to go? Helmets on your head, the road is there waiting for your Vespa!
With the help of a local guide, guide your own Vespa along the peaceful Chianti-shire roads lined with cypresses, breathing the aromas of the countryside and the soft breezes of the Tuscany!

Departing from Florence downtown aboard a minivan, your Vespa Tour starts in the morning, with a lovely drive to the nearby hillside. After a quick journey, a line of original Vespas will be there waiting for you.
First, listen to the advice and instructions of your English-speaking instructor , a Vespa pro, and take a few laps in our dedicated space, to practice safely. But as soon as you feel comfortable and ready to go... Go! Saddle up and follow your local guide!

The landscape you will pass through is what made Tuscany famous in the world: enjoy the fresh air of the Florentine countryside among hills covered with olive trees and vineyards, tiny ancient churches and farms with bright colors.
Crossing the luxuriant vineyards along your road (of course you can stop for photos!) you will reach a winery well known throughout the region . Explore the cellars and learn all about their wine production techniques, listening to the company staff who will be happy to guide you on this visit.

Continue driving through flowery meadows and rolling hills, until you reach the delicious second cellar where you will taste a typical Tuscan lunch (or dinner). Savor the unique flavors of local seasonal specialties, discover the company's approach to winemaking and savor the best, with a guided tasting of the company's wine and olive oil.

To ride an AUTHENTIC PIAGGIO VESPA, the Italian design icon, choose the "SINGLE" option (EUR 149).
Choose the "SMART" option (for only EUR 119) to ride a smaller PIAGGIO ZIP scooter.

Service is operated with original PIAGGIO 50cc scooters: the authentic VESPA or the smaller ZIP (both with NO gears). We also provide APE CALESSINO (3 wheeled Vespa, driven by a tour leader) as alternative if you do not feel comfortable driving.

A valid driving license is required and need to be presented on the day of the tour (although you do not need a motorcycle license) and you must be at least 18 years of age to drive, at least 13 years to be a passenger.

Previous experience is not required but advantageous and highly advised. We reserve 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 REFUNDS 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 accomodate them.

Rain Policy

Provided that we will do our best to proceed with the tours, 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.

Since we are aware that the experience running today, might not be the one you had wished for, we are hereby giving you the following choices, to be communicated to our Front Office Staff DURING THE CHECK-IN PROCEDURE:

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) Reschedule the tour for another day, subject to availability. Please apply to the reception desk in order to ask availability for rescheduling the experience.
If no suitable date / time is available for the reschedule, you will be able to choose any other experience available, with an equal or less value, or eventually an experience with a higher value, paying only the difference.

3) A credit, called Rain Check, (of the same amount clients paid) to be used the following days or at any other time, subject to availability. The Rain check is a voucher given to the 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 possibly 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.
