Safety First! Vespa Driving Lessons

Before heading out into the Tuscan countryside, your English-speaking professional driving instructor will conduct an orientation so that you'll be comfortable driving on the road, followed by a quick driving test on an enclosed private training circuit. Don't worry, driving a Vespa is pretty simple!

You'll need a valid driving license to ride the scooter on the road (although you don't need a specific motorcycle license) and you must be at least 18 years of age. Children over the age of 13 can ride as a passenger, as can adults if they prefer not to ride solo.

Cruising Through Tuscany by Vespa

As you depart Florence, follow your expert local guide through the beautiful rolling hills of Tuscany. Surrounded by olive trees, sunflowers, and centuries-old castles, few regions can compete with Tuscany's gentle beauty.

Passing through the tiny wine-producing villages and panoramic views of the sun-drenched countryside, you'll have plenty of chances to stop for a photo or just to take it all in. Along the way, your guide will stop to point out some of their favorite places and views, and you'll learn a little about life in this idyllic part of the world.

Chianti Wine and Tuscan Food Specialties

One of the highlights of your Vespa tour is tasting the incredible food and wine that Tuscany is known for. You'll visit two incredible local wineries today that produce the region's famous Chianti red wine. First, you'll stop in at one of Tuscany's best-known wineries, where you'll learn about the history of Chianti wine production, see the winemaking process first-hand, and of course try some it for yourself! Later, you'll head to a smaller boutique winery to taste some of their sought-after artisan wines.

At these wineries, you'll also be able to sample some local Tuscan delicacies such as olive oils, olives, and cheeses, and you'll also be treated to an authentic Tuscan meal made from seasonal local ingredients. Blessed with amazing weather and great growing conditions, the food and wine of Tuscany is certainly worthy of its fame.

If you'd like to take a few bottles home for yourself, then don't worry about trying to carry them on your Vespa. The wineries can arrange for bottles to be shipped to your home, wherever in the world that may be!

We got our helmets and Vespa lesson and then unfortunately it started to rain very heavily. The Vespa portion of the tour was cancelled and we had to do the tour by bus. Once we got over this disappointment the rest of the tour was great. The guides Grazia and Giuseppe were wonderful and went out of their way to ensure everyone was comfortable and happy. Too bad they couldn’t control the weather.

The Vespa wine tour was beyond fun. The vespas are easy to drive and provide an amazing view of the entire scenery throughout the ride. The wine tasting and lunch was top notch very flavorful but not too filling. The tour guides were amazing. They kept us safe and cared for us throughout. If I could rate this a 10 I would give it a 10 +.
