Very nice place to spend a couple of hours looking at historic and unusual Vespas and other motorcycles. Only a couple of other visitors while I was there. No admission if I remember correctly.

I have owned a Vespa for 35 years so I love to visit this museum. It''s free, all of the staff are friendly so there can be nothing to complain about. The town is also very pretty for a visit after the museum.

Passed by this museum on our way to Florence and were glad we did. It is free to enter and they have so many vespas to show their history. Definitely worth a visit if you are nearby.
