Overview
Take a tour from Florence with a difference - by vespa scooter! It's a fabulous way to tour the Chianti region of Tuscany with beautiful vineyards and rolling hills. An exciting alternative to conventional tours, this Chianti Scooter Tour gives you access to country roads so you'll discover more corners of this world-famous wine producing region of Italy. Ride through the hillside of Tuscany on a Vespa scooter and soak up the sights, smells and sounds.
The ride, along scenic country roads will offer splendid views of the rolling hillside, vineyards and olive groves, little medieval churches and ancient wineries. Some stops for photo opportunities will be made along the way.
You will visit a famous winery, producing some of the most appreciated Chianti wines, and a boutique winery, learning their approach on wine making and tasting their delicious wines and olive oil.
End your memorable experience with a typical Tuscan meal that will be served in a Tuscan farmhouse
Highlights
  • Explore Florence on a popular Italian mode of transport: the Vespa
  • Zip between dispersed sights, as the driver or passenger, without getting lost
  • A Tuscan lunch is included
  • Choose from a departure time in the morning or afternoon
What to Expect
Your Vespa tour begins in central Florence, where you greet your guide and get to grips with your Vespa scooter. Following a safety briefing, hop onto your ride, either as the driver or passenger, and set off toward the Tuscan countryside. Admire scenic vistas, as you travel toward Chianti to taste wine and tour the cellars of two distinguished wineries. Then, revitalize with a traditional Tuscan lunch at a castle, before soaking up more panoramic views on the way back to your original departure point in Florence.

If it does not stop raining, the entire tour will be conducted in the safety and comfort of the minivan. Guest options on rainy days: 1) Proceed with the tour hoping for clearing weather – PARTIAL RIDE or NO RIDE due to heavy RAIN Customers can decide to proceed with the tour hoping for clearing weather with the understanding that if scooters are not ridden at all due to rain, or if the Vespa tour is dramatically abbreviated due to rain, customers will NOT be granted any refund or discount. We will do our best to get you on a scooter, weather permitting. 2) Rain check (of the same amount clients paid) to be used the following day or at any other time, subject to availability. The Rain check is a voucher given to client. The voucher is transferable and may be sold or given to others to use at a future date and lasts up to 1 year from date. It has a value that can be possible used in any other tour provided by our company. Please note that clients' safety and comfort are of utmost priority, and proper rain gear is mandatory for guests choosing to "ride in the rain". We ask clients to be at the meeting point 15 minutes before the tour departure, to check the weather conditions and choose accordingly. No-shows will not be refunded.
