  • Enjoy a magnificent view from a private terrace and sample some of Tuscany's best prosciutto and cheese with a glass of Chianti
Full description

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

    This was the perfect way to see the most picturesque parts of Tuscany just outside of Florence. The hills, the vineyards, everything you'd want to see! Riding the Vespa was fun and fairly easy. I had no prior experience, but they made sure we could ride safely before leading us onto the streets. It only took a few turns to feel like I had it 100% down. But FYI, my wife is 5' and found she was a bit too short to feel comfortable/stable on the Vespa; she could barely reach the ground from the seat, so her acceleration and balance were a little iffy. It was no big deal though, she rode on the back of mine. That was her experience and yours might be different, but it might be something to keep in mind if you're considering separate Vespas. The guides were friendly, the lunch was fantastic, and the overall experience was incredible. This is a must if you're staying in Florence/Tuscany!

    Christian was a fantastic guide and teacher. We were both beginners with the vespa, and he kept us safe and gave great instructions. He was a knowledgeable guide for the area, and a true Tuscan local. His love for the area and for his job was obvious and made a beautiful tour very fascinating. The vintage Vespas are fun and charming. The fleet of vintage Fiats was also fun to watch. We would highly recommend walkabout tours and Christian to our family and friends, you too will be in good hands with their team! Thanks Christian and Team! Jon and Susan.
