Tuscany by Vespa from Florence

Drive along the scenic and silent roads of the spectacular Tuscan countryside on a Vespa scooter admiring the sights, smells and sounds of the Chianti region!

Fancy driving through the rolling hills and stunning Tuscan countryside and taking in the sights, smells, and sounds of the Chianti region in classic Italian style? Then this is the tour for you.

A short ride in a comfortable minibus will take you into the rural bliss just outside of Florence but try to ignore the scenery and concentrate on the comprehensive orientation conducted by an-English speaking trained professional, ensuring the safe operation of the scooter!

Then it's time to hit the road. The ride, along quiet and scenic country roads will offer splendid views of the picture-perfect rolling hills and abundant small medieval villages. You will then stop at a 17th Century Villa, for a lunch featuring Tuscan specialties with a little Chianti wine tasting, and for a guided visit of their ancient cellars.

Several stops for photo opportunities and surprise tastings will be made along the way and possibly... a stop for "gelato" (Italian ice cream), time permitting.
