There is nothing more exciting and unique than driving a vespa through the Tuscan hills. Live “La Dolce Vita” with us. Our Tuscany Vespa Tours allow you to discover the beauty of the Chianti Colli Fiorentini while you are on an Italian icon. After a scooter orientation and safety briefing, you will start riding through the rolling hills surrounded by vineyards and olive groves with frequent stops for pictures and to take in the spectacular views of the Tuscan countryside. At the end of the unforgettable ride you will visit a 12th century castle, which is home to the Count and Countess Guicciardini, one of the Florentine noble families. At the castle we offer a traditional Tuscan lunch (included in the price) and a wine and extra virgin olive oil tasting.
