Your Vespa tour will begin in central Florence, where you’ll meet your guide for a brief safety overview and practice ride before hitting the road. Saddle up on your original Vintage PK Vespa, a classic model no longer produced, and follow your guide through the city streets until you reach the outskirts.
Admire panoramic views of Florence from the Church of San Miniato al Monte before taking a peek inside. The Romanesque church hosts an array of incredible artwork and is one of the city’s lesser-known gems.
Continue into the Tuscan hills, past poppy fields and vineyards, with plenty of opportunities to pause for photos. As you travel back toward Florence, pull over at Piazzale Michelangelo, where views of the Arno River and the iconic Duomo stretch out before you.
Conclude your adventure with a Tuscan meal on a private terrace, savoring bites of burrata cheese, bruschetta or meat cold cuts with fennel. Sit back, relax and soak up the Italian spirit before heading back to your original departure point.
San Miniato al Monte is a basilica in Florence, standing atop one of the highest points in the city. It has been described as one of the finest Romanesque structures in Tuscany and one of the most scenic churches in Italy.
The diverse and amazing panorama in Tuscany is distinguished with its diverse and scenic landscapes; perhaps the most famous being Chianti. Located in an area that encompasses Florence and Siena, Chianti is as varied in its scenery as it is in its wines.

BEST TOUR EVER.....A MUST to do !!!
, Dec 2019
This tour is a must while in Florence. It is fun, educational and more than you would expect. Alex was amazing in terms of providing information and ensuring our security while on the road at all times. He is a wealth of knowledge so every time we stopped at a particular place, he would gather all of us to explain all the details of where we were, its history and funny anecdotes as well. Once on the road to Tuscany the views are magnificent including their private place where we had an amazing, delicious lunch with an extraordinary view. We also found out, they do cooking lessons there for homemade pizza and gelato. Honestly, we did not want to get off our Vespa upon returning back. This tour is a MUST to do!
This tour was awesome. My wife and I had a great time. I drove, she rode. If you take this tour, make sure you are comfortable driving an open air vehicle, in actual traffic. The views are awesome. The wine and food was good too.
The organizers are very friendly and professional. They taught me how to drive a Vespa motorcycle, we did group tests before leaving. The guide is a wonderful guy, very considerate and always in a very good mood. The tour was beautiful through the city and the mountains. I recommend it 200%!
My group had 15 riders, mostly couples of all ages. As I often travel solo, sometimes there is a bit of a third-wheel feeling in tours that are full of couples, but not at all with this trip! The tour guide Stefano did excellent making sure everyone was happy and comfortable on the bikes, and with each other. He was patient and thorough in making sure everyone was able to ride the bikes safely as he explained how they worked, and the traffic rules. When riding, he led the group in a 1960s fiat, and we followed behind like little ducklings on our 1983 Vespas. We rode through tiny towns and around the Tuscan hills near Galluzzo Pozzolatico, near olive groves as workers picked olives for the harvest. We stopped at a gorgeous viewpoint above Florence where Stefano taught us about the history of the city, its architecture, and its Renaissance leaders. We had 2-course lunch of pasta and cheese/prosciutto at a beautiful garden overlooking the hills. It was excellent! Thank you Stefano and Walkabout tours! Five stars!
Everything went off without a hitch. You meet at the office. They pay for your taxi to a place out of the center of Florence (which is great because personally, I do not want to drive a Vespa in the heart of Florence). Then they go over safety features of the Vespa and conduct a small test to ensure you're comfortable. Then you're off! I was pleasantly surprised to see how far we took our Vespas and how much time we spent on them. It was a real "Italian experience!" You stop to look at olive trees and grape vines and learn about the production of them in the region. Afterwards, you're treated to a lovely meal with a glass of wine (again, pleasantly surprised at the size of the meal). The last stop is a view at the top of a hill and a peek into the church of San Miniato al Monte, which is one of the prettiest I've seen. Our tour guide, Alex, was pleasant, funny, friendly, and well-informed. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone!
