About

Experience the Dolce Vita by joining the Italian Vespa club - the original tour of Tuscany on a Vespa! With over a decade of passionate expertise and 25,000 satisfied clients that promote our exceptional service, we are indisputably the best ambassador of this unique experience in Italy. Through the beautiful hillsides of Tuscany, grab a Vespa and explore the sights, smells and sounds of the Chianti region on quiet country roads. Notes: You may want to take a look at countryside scenery with our minivan which can be handy during all tour. We will be passing through busy city center with a swift ride before we move towards our adventure. A trained professional shall familiarize you with the Vespas and endorse their proper usage before we start our exciting journey. To assess the competence and security of Vespa drivers on public roads, a closed-space driving examination will be administered. Splendid views of the hillside, vineyards, and olive groves will be offered on the ride along scenic country roads. There will also be little medieval churches and ancient wineries to see, with photo opportunities along the way. Taste a delightful surprise in the iconic town of Greve in Chianti and receive a guided tour of the cellars of a renowned winery, producer of highly acclaimed Chianti wines. Learn all the mysteries of wine production during the tour. Making your experience truly memorable, just before lunch (or dinner, depending on which departure time you choose), you will conclude your Vespa ride. Indulge in a typical Tuscan lunch that awaits you, complete with a wine and olive oil tasting. Embrace the opportunity to ride like a true Italian and don't let it pass you by! We offer a distinct mode of transportation using the classic 50cc PIAGGIO VESPA, the quieter and eco-friendly Electric VESPA, or the more compact ZIP scooters. Our fleet includes the charming APE CALESSINO, also known as the Tuscany Tuk Tuk, which is a three-wheeled Vespa with a tour leader at the wheel if you prefer not to drive. Round-trip distance is roughly 20 miles (approximately 32 kilometers). Little traffic on mostly paved country roads characterizes the terrain. Support for minivan available at all times. Speed average of 25km/h (15 mls/h) with an easy difficulty. Make sure you have a valid driving license, although a motorcycle license is not necessary, before going on the tour. Also, keep in mind that you must be 18 years of age to drive and at least 13 years old if you want to be a passenger.
