Vintage Vespa Tour


Description

RIDE A VINTAGE VESPA IN THE HILLS OF TUSCANY!

This is your chance to be an Italian for a couple hours and enjoy the sheer fun of riding a Vespa through the Tuscan countryside!

Meet at our centrally located garage for your introduction to one of our 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.

The day couldn't have gone any better. Started with a quick lesson and then off we went. My wife and I both said that it was the highlight of our trip to Italy. Angel was an amazing tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about the area and a ton of fun to be around.

It’s hard to say what part of a trip to Florence is the most amazing - but this was an ABSOLUTE highlight! The tour is guided - our friendly and knowledgeable guide Angel instructed all how to ride and kept us all safe as he guided us out of Florence into the amazing Tuscan countryside where we had spectacular views and a lovely meal. The Vespas take a little getting used to but once you get moving it’s an incredible experience. He took us up to the Piazzale Michaelangelo for a brief history of the city and some more amazing views. I would recommend this unique experience and definitely rate Walkabout Tours as five stars.

My husband and I were excited but a bit anxious to drive a Vespa in the streets of Florence. After 5 minutes with Angel, no more anxiety. Just pure fun!! He was excellent at instructions and made me feel very confident in the way he guided us. The tour stopped at some of the most gorgeous views of Florence and the countryside. Such great energy and informative! Lunch was the topping on the cake! Amazing vineyard setting and delish Italian cuisine. The absolute best day we experienced while in Florence. You will not regret it! Be sure to request Angel!

Stefano is the best. He looks like Bradly Cooper and is super funny. Riding the vespas through Florence was easily the highlight of our trip. They take you through the hills and make a couple stops to your lunch destination. Stefano explains some history and some funny stories and leads you through an incredible landscape. The vespa rides hits its halfway point at a lunch spot in the hills. Its an amazing view of Florence and you are served an awesome lunch. Its the same spot where the cooking class takes place so you can see what the other students are cooking up. There is also the worlds fluffiest dog that you can go pet if you want. After lunch you saddle up and head back to city. 10/10 trip, highly recommend.

Angel was terrific as a guide and was engaging and knowledgeable. Riding around Florence and its suburbs on a Vespa is simply the ideal way to enjoy this terrific city. There was no rush at any of the stops, and there were plenty of opportunities to take amazing photographs. Highly recommend as a must to do in Florence!

First off, Alex was the BEST guide! He was funny, knowledgeable, and gave such interesting facts about everywhere we visited. I travelled with 3 friends, and we all had a blast. It felt like one of the most authentic ways to see Florence and the Tuscan Hills, which were breathtaking. The food was amazing too! Overall, we were so impressed with this tour. Would 100% book again.
