  • Enjoy a magnificent view from a private terrace and sample some of Tuscany's best prosciutto and cheese with a glass of Chianti
Full description

Meet at the centrally located garage for your introduction to one of the perfectly restored Vintage Vespas. Your tour leader will fit you with a helmet and give some basic instructions and safety information before setting off for this exhilarating ride through the countryside. Leave Florence in a small swarm of Vespas and head for the freedom of the hills, following the tour leader along the riverside and a tree-lined avenue to a famous viewpoint.

After posing for photos with your Vespa and the amazing skyline of Florence, enjoy a bit of culture with a quick visit inside one of Florence's oldest churches. Feeling more confident now with your Vespa, it's time for some more challenging roads as you leave the crowds and traffic behind and take to the narrow lanes between castles and villas, through ancient olive groves and vineyards.

There are plenty of stops for photos and if two people are sharing a Vespa, there's plenty of chance to take turns. When it's time for a break, enjoy a magnificent view from a private terrace and sample some of Tuscany's best prosciutto and cheese with a glass of Chianti.

Then be prepared to turn some heads as you ride expertly back into the city as you and your Vintage Vespa become one of the tourist sights of Florence.

    Christian was a fantastic guide and teacher. We were both beginners with the vespa, and he kept us safe and gave great instructions. He was a knowledgeable guide for the area, and a true Tuscan local. His love for the area and for his job was obvious and made a beautiful tour very fascinating. The vintage Vespas are fun and charming. The fleet of vintage Fiats was also fun to watch. We would highly recommend walkabout tours and Christian to our family and friends, you too will be in good hands with their team! Thanks Christian and Team! Jon and Susan.

    Alex was an amazing guide and we had a wonderful time. The vespas are real and you go out on the roads which is a bit harrowing but also fun. We did two people on one Vespa and I would recommend getting separate Vespas. “Lunch” which was really dinner was at a lively estate with a beautiful view. We also met new people and it was very enjoyable!

    This was such a fun outing. I would recommend it for anyone. I enjoyed riding the Vespas, learning about the countryside on the outskirts of Florence and taking in all the beautiful Tuscan views. Even in the 38 degree heat it was enjoyable. Lunch included pasta, meat, cheese and bruschetta and a small glass of regional wine. It was lovely. I had a bit of previous Vespa experience and though many were nervous to start we all did very well. One of the bikes in the other group did break down but the team was quick to try and recover things and all was well. I definitely recommended and we all enjoyed each other’s company and had a blast.
