You’ve probably seen the Tuscan countryside provide some stunning backdrops for a variety of Hollywood movies and charming photographs, but rest assured that the real thing is even better. Make the most of your time spent within this famous region by taking part in our Vespa tour, as we set off to explore the picturesque hillside towns and world-class wineries that bring the area to life.
We start this magical journey by first ensuring that everyone can safely ride the scooters through a quick orientation session. Before we start exploring the peaceful surrounding landscape, a professional instructor will guide you through the basic functions of the scooters, as well as have you take part in a short driving test.
Once everyone is accustomed to their Vespa, we’ll climb aboard and delve into Tuscany’s much-loved wineries, historic villages and olive groves. Riding along the charming roads, there are dozens of great vistas that would make for some stunning photographs. So, we’ll be sure to take lots of breaks so that we can capture each and every one.
Our first major stop is situated deep inside the Chianti wine region, which is celebrated for its delicious blend of red grapes that have become a hit around the world. You might be surprised to learn that this area of Tuscany was declared Italy’s first protected wine region by Cosimo III, the Grand Duke of Tuscany, more than three hundred years ago in 1716. Dotted throughout the nearby hills are dozens of high-quality wineries and cellar doors, and our first stop gives you the chance to learn all about the hidden secrets behind Chianti wine and its great flavour.
We’ll then return to our Vespa scooters and head to our second stop. This winery represents a smaller but no less incredible operation as we sit down inside for a gratifying Tuscan-style meal that comes complete with local wine and freshly made olive oil.
Experience the delights of Tuscany as we take a ride that explores the very best cuisine and landscapes that this region has to offer. Let the sun and fresh air wash over you, as this fun and exciting Vespa tour presents you with a distinctly Italian adventure.
