Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

BEST TOUR EVER.....A MUST to do !!!

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.
