Suitable for both new and experienced scooter riders, this small group tour sets out to offer you a different perspective on Italy and its dreamy possibilities.
Departing from Florence’s bustling streets by coach, we’ll make the drive through a variety of breathtaking landscapes as we arrive in the charming winemaking region of Chianti hills. Surrounded by fresh country air and remarkable vistas, it’s the ideal place to set off on our Vespa adventure.
But before we do, every attendee of our tour will take part in a quick orientation session to make sure that everyone is comfortable riding the scooters on Tuscany’s windy roads. A professional guide will be there to show you how to operate the scooters safely, while there’s also a short driving test held within an enclosed environment.
Once everyone is ready to depart, we’ll climb aboard our Vespas and head off to seek out the region’s most stunning collection of wineries, olive plantations, ancient villages and panoramic views. Fortunately, Chianti features these in abundance, as we make regular stops along the road to snap some great photos so that you can remember these places forever.
One of the major stops on this journey is a visit to a leading Chianti winery, which has built a reputation as one of the absolute best in the region. The estate has made the most of Chianti’s 300-year-long history of winemaking, with the grapes produced here being simply wonderful. Throughout our stay, you’ll take a tour of the cellar, plus get to learn some of the secrets behind their special vino.
Having finished our first winery, it’s time to head to another. While our second winery might be a little bit smaller, it’s no less impressive as the rich variety of wines here are bound to impress. You’ll be happy to know that you’ll get to sample some of the best as we sit down for a Tuscan-style meal that includes wine and locally produced olive oil.
