Classic Vespa Tour of Florence and its Countryside

To product

Experience the beautiful Florence while riding a Vespa through the city center and the landscape!

Upon your arrival, it will be held a short briefing with our small group of new friends, in which you will be introduced about the itinerary and how to ride on the roads.  After wearing the helmet you can enjoy your ride on  the mythic “Italian two wheels”, discovering rare City corners,  breathtaking views, ancient hamlets and unforgettable landscapes offering you a great opportunity for a fantastic “photographic adventure”! After riding through the “Oltrarno” quarter,  the most characteristic and authentic City’s side,  we ride along the sinuous road up to the hill which dominates the Piazzale Michelangelo, where you can enjoy the most  astonishing and spectacular view  of Florence,  where you visit  “San Miniato al Monte”, the wonderful Romanesque Basilica  of the year 1000, preserving great art treasures. After having taken beautiful pictures as “post cards”,  we keep moving forward, riding to  the Chianti Region,  letting us cradle by the sinuous  curves across the gentle hills of the famous Tuscan countryside, in the peace of the nature, kissed by the sun and caressed  by the wind. Once arrived at the small Chianti hamlet, we have a stop at the characteristic organic farm, where we can taste an delicious and organic wine tasting, extra virgin olive oil and cheese, all own-growing organic products.   

These typical Chianti products are made without  any synthetic fertilizers, using the same processing methods which were used by our grandparents and this really makes the difference in taste.  After  the products tasting  and the visit of the farm-estate, we ride again enjoying along the “Chiantigiana road” which is renown and famous for its landscapes of unspeakable beauty, surrounded by  gentle hills, parish churches, castles and villas, spotted by vineyards and olive tree groves whose genuine products make famous in the world this beautiful  corner of Tuscany.  Riding  along  the cypress tree –lined  road, we get to another hamlet  laid down on a splendid hill, which is famous for the “Tuscan Cotto tile”,  a  popular high –quality material used for roofs, walls and floors  of many houses.  Here we visit the typical square flanked by a Renaissance balusters and round arched loggias  and the suggestive Basilica of the XI century. While returning to Florence, once again we can enjoy a wonderful panorama along the road, the best way to end  this fantastic experience, riding the legendary and original Italian scooter “Vespa”
