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.

      Anglo-Saxons say: "AMAZING" !!! ... they're right !

      the whole team is very friendly, ... very nice experience, exceptionally pleasant ride punctuated by a snack in a very beautiful property. A minimum of two-wheel practice is recommended: the charm of this "passeggiata" being the driving of a "vintage" scooter, but taking place on very irregular roads and surfaces, it is important not to underestimate this aspect of the things, personally: THAT HAPPINESS !!!
