Vespa Tour in Chianti
Join us for a fun and beautiful day on the back roads of Tuscany – on a Vespa!
We will pick you up with one of our comfortable minivans and take you to the countryside, away from the busy hassle of the city.
First, you will receive an orientation conducted by an English speaking trained professional ensuring the safe operation of the scooter. We will then head out for our engaging and enjoyable ride, along quiet and scenic country roads offering splendid views of the rolling hillside, vineyards and olive groves, little ancient churches and medieval towers. Several stops for photo opportunities will be made along the way.
You will visit a winery and enjoy a guided tour of their ancient cellars, where you will learn all the secrets of wine and olive oil production.
A traditional Tuscan lunch (or dinner, depending on which departure you choose) will be served with a wine tasting.
Your official t-shirt (included) will always remind you of this incredible experience!
Service is operated with original 50cc PIAGGIO VESPA or ZIP scooters. We also provide APE CALESSINO, also called Tuscany Tuk Tuk (3 wheeled Vespa, driven by a tour leader), as alternative if you do not feel comfortable driving.
