Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in the center of town, collect your helmet and get acquainted with your mode of transport -- an original Vintage PK Vespa (this classic model is no longer in production).

After a safety briefing and a few practice sessions to get used to the scooter, you will be on your way. Following your attentive guide, take a leisurely drive through Florence's backstreets before reaching the sweeping boulevards on the outskirts of town.

Stop at the Church of San miniato al monte for breathtaking views over Florence and a quick look around inside with your guide. One of the city's true gems, this beautiful Romanesque church contains a fascinating mish-mash of architecture and art from different eras. Your tour continues into the vineyard-studded hills of Tuscany, meandering through leafy villages and poppy-filled fields.

If you have chosen to share your scooter with your traveling companion, there will be plenty of breaks to stop and switch drivers or to simply stretch your legs while admiring the views. On your way back to town, stop at Piazzale Michelangelo, a popular vantage point for gazing over Florence.

The one thing left to do is eat! Before returning your Vespa, sit down with your guide for a relaxing meal on a private terrace. Dishes vary, but will always be typically Tuscan. Expect artistically arranged antipasti like bruschetta with ripe tomatoes, creamy burrata cheese, panzanella salad and cold cuts of meat with fennel. Its the perfect ending to a perfect day in Tuscany!

    This tour is a must when visiting Florence. Having a great tour leader as Manolo makes it even more fun and safe. The experience of riding a Vespa under the Tuscan sun, authentic lunch in beautiful estate and meeting new friends makes it worthwhile.

    Gabriel was a great tour guide and has a real passion for the history of Florence which shows through the tour. My girlfriend and I had a great time riding through the city on the Vespas and seeing all the amazing views!

    Really fun experience in the Chianti hills. Stefano are Christian are the best. You’ll really enjoy rolling through the hills in your Vespa (or Fiat).

    For the past two visits my husband and I have made to Florence we have booked this extremely fun Vespa tour. I highly recommend this Vespa tour. It’s a small group, beautiful tour and lots of fun! Modello was an excellent tour guide. We didn’t want the tour to end we had so much fun!

    Driving up through the tuscan hills on the vespa was something we will never forget. The tour guides gabriel and christian were brilliant joking from the minute we met them. Very informative guides. The lunch was really nice and the view from lunch was even nicer. Would highly recommend doing it.

    Great way to spend a day around the Florentine hills on a classic Vespa with fantastic sights and company! Chris and Gabriel were so friendly, helpful, and attentive. The food and wine for lunch was a great treat, combined with the beautiful views from the estate.

    This is a great day trip. The meeting point is easy to find and the bus ride to the garage is pleasant. We actually ended up driving a 1974 Fiat 500 rather than a Vespa - which was sooo much fun!! The driving test for the Vespa was good - challenging enough that my husband and decided that two 50+ year olds on a Vespa in drizzle would be a bad idea! So you can feel safe that if you pass the test you will enjoy the ride. Chris and Gabriel were excellent hosts. They gave good information at each stop and were fun and easy going! Lunch was good - the views were amazing! If you are looking for something a little different to do in Florence don't hesitate to give it a try!
