Know More about this tourMeet 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.
