Our comfortable minivan will take you out of the city, in the Chianti countryside. Before starting the tour you will be given all the information needed to drive the Vespa in perfect safety. So you will be ready to discover the wonders of Chianti.

The tour will take you through extraordinary itineraries among rolling hills studded with vineyards and olive trees, small quaint villages and ancient churches.

You will visit a famous cellar where the wine is produced and enjoy a guided tour learning some secrets about wine and oil production. Then you will visit a family-run farm where they produce organic wine.
