Full description

‘Ma quanto è bello andare in giro con le ali sotto ai piedi se hai una Vespa Special che ti toglie i problemi/Ma quanto è bello andare in giro per i colli bolognesi se hai una Vespa Special che ti toglie i problemi’.

This was the song of the summer a few years ago in Italy, have you heard it before? It would be the perfect soundtrack for the Vespa tour in Chianti we propose. Just replace the hills of Bologna with the wonderful Chianti hills, but the spirit remains the same: in the spring and summer there is nothing better, to visit the typical Tuscan hills, than to ride a flamboyant Vespa. I imagine that everyone, even outside Italy, has seen a picture of the Piaggio scooter born in 1946, which has become a symbol of Italian design: an icon of over 70 years of age which attracts enthusiasts and collectors all over the world. The version you will drive is the most modern one, but it still retains all its vintage charm. And if you have kids of over 13 years of age, you can bring them with you as passengers... They will have a lot of fun, we're sure. For younger ones, keeping their safety at heart, it is best to wait for them to grow a bit!

The experience we offer does not only consist of a Vespa rental in Tuscany but also guarantees a day full of fun and relaxation to discover one of the most typical areas of the whole region. A discovery journey that cannot forego including a delicious tasting of local products: wine, salami, cheeses and anything else this fantastic territory has to offer. What do you think?

Before turning on the engine of this legendary scooter, let's have a look in detail at how the Vespa tour in Tuscany will unfold. You will always be accompanied by our guides who will first take you to a picturesque Chianti farm that you will reach on board a comfortable minibus with all the amenities that will make your trip very enjoyable. Once you arrive, our team will help you get used to riding your fantastic red Vespa. But remember: we will keep your safety at heart! You will be given a helmet and if you do not feel comfortable driving it, one of our escorts will drive it for you, and you can switch to the passenger seat to enjoy the fresh air and the views.

Once you are comfortable on your Vespa with a helmet on your head and your hands on the steering wheel ready to rev up, set off: our team will guide you on an interesting and enjoyable itinerary to visit Chianti by Vespa. You will follow a route that will take you up and down the hills, offering different views at each descent and climb. A Tuscany Vespa wine tour is, in fact, a great way to enjoy all the beauty of this region. Under the Tuscan sun, but with the fresh air stroking your skin, you can admire the rows of vines which produce the delicious wines of this area and the olive trees, another typical cultivation that characterizes the landscape of the Tuscan countryside. Surely you will stop to take some photos of the cypresses that dot the hills: their shape is the symbol of Tuscany itself. We can already imagine you taking a nice selfie on your fantastic two-wheeled vehicle with the wonderful landscape behind you. But Chianti is not just nature, it is also a land rich in history that has inevitably left its precious traces. So let yourself be intrigued by the wonderful medieval villages scattered around the area: it will be like leaping back into the past and it does not matter if instead of riding a horse you will be on a flamboyant Vespa!

Your Chianti Vespa tour will last about a couple of hours, after which you will have earned a stopover filled with delicious surprises. You will then return to the farm from which you set off, and to rest your legs go for a stroll through the rows of vineyards while enjoying all the noises, scents and the magical atmosphere of the farm... wait and see, in the end you will feel as relaxed as at home!

At this point you will be offered a delicious meal based on typical products of Chianti which will give you all the taste of the most genuine Tuscany. You will taste the salami and the cheeses produced in the area and some traditional recipes that make you lick your lips. In Tuscany, you know, 'you eat very well'! And since we are in Chianti at a farm where wine is produced, one could certainly not miss a delicious tasting. Raise your glasses and toast to the wonderful day spent in the magic of Chianti.

Depending on your preferences, you can choose between a modern Vespa scooter model or a nice vintage Vespa model; in both cases you can bring a passenger (not less than 13 years of age).

Do you want to enjoy the Vespa tour Italy in total relaxation, without missing out on any of the scenery that these beautiful hills have to offer? Don’t worry, Toscanainside has also thought of giving you the opportunity to take part in the Italy vespa tour as a passenger, relying on a driver who will guide the vehicle for you!

Visiting Tuscany by Vespa is a truly unique experience, a memory that will remain indelible forever. Thanks to our Chianti Tour in Vespa rental, you will spend an unforgettable, entertaining and unique day! Delighted by the breathtaking views, the good Chianti typical products and the wine we are sure you will not want to leave! How can you sustain the contrary... to ride around on a Vespa tour in Tuscany, up the hills of Chianti is truly appealing... at least until the petrol lasts!
