Know More about this tour

Meet your guide and tour escorts at your hotel, put on your helmet and get acquainted with your quintessentially Italian mode of transport – a beautiful Vespa scooter! After a safety briefing and a few practice sessions to get used to the Vespa’s automatic gears, follow the lead of your guide and set off on your way. Alternatively, hop on behind one of your tour escorts if you prefer not to drive yourself.

Following your guide, take a leisurely drive through the area of Monteriggioni. Then, head into the luscious Chianti hills of Tuscany, passing along quiet countryside lanes that meander through medieval villages and flower-filled fields. If you’ve chosen to share your scooter with a traveling companion, there will be plenty of breaks factored in to stop and switch drivers, or to simply stretch your legs while soaking up the views.

Half-way through the day, stop at a Chianti winery in the heart of the region to learn all about winemaking in Tuscany. Explore the vineyards and cellars with your guide, and then taste several local wines, including prestigious varieties such as Chianti Classico, Gallo Nero and Super Tuscan.

After your wine-tasting session, sit down inside the winery and enjoy a traditional Tuscan lunch of cured meats, mild cheeses, freshly baked bread and olives, while chatting with your guide about life in the idyllic Chianti region. Spend some free time here relaxing in the sunshine before driving back into Siena.

Your Vespa tour finishes in the late afternoon back at your Siena hotel.

  • The tour and staff were very good. The only challenge was my wife was unable to ride a scooter because they did not have a scooter for a 5' person. Understanding this was off season I would suggest that Viator ask the height of each person to accomodate them for a scooter.

  • So much fun cruising the Chianti region on a Vespa. It was great weather and we learned about the region, which was cool. The guide, Francesco, was a really lovely man.

  • The tour and the tour guides were awesome. Enjoyed every minute. The wine tasting at the Chianti Winery was so amazingly good we shipped a case back home. Highly recommended this tour, but if you have no experience driving a Vespa or scooter you may want to rent one of their vintage cars.

  • we had such an incredible day and as first timers on a motorbike of any kind, this was an unexpected delight! staff was amazing,helpful and patient. it was the perfect mix of riding and stops. absolutely recommended!

  • This was the highlight of my trip. The Vespa tour was wonderful! The views from the Vespa ride were bellissima. The wine tasting in Chianti fun.

  • Great experience. Equipment was new, first rate. Great route through back roads to out of the way places. Everything was excellent.

  • We had a wonderul day in Siena. We had booked a Vespa tour but on the day of the tour rain was predicted. So we were offered a switch to Fiat 500 and tour itself was great. The locations are fantastic and our guides Stefano and Francisco were super considerate and helpful. Highly recommend!

  • Great day out. Excellent tour guide.

  • When we arrived the weather forecast for the day was terrible so we couldn't take out the Vespas. They did all they could to get another old school Fiat 500 and actually managed to get one delivered so we could all do the tour in these a great replacement if you ask me. The tour guides were fun and friendly. Took us to a couple of historical towns and to the winery where we had a great meal and tried wine grown on their estate to match. What a great day, would highly recommend to everyone, even if it lashes down with rain :

  • This was the most fun thing we did while on our Italian Holiday. Our guides did a great job in letting us explore on our Vespas while keeping us safe. We saw some incredible little towns and enjoyed a fabulous lunch in a winery, none of which we would have done if we hadn't done the tour.
