Vespa Small Group Day Trip to the Chianti Wine Region
Reviewed by: Edgar F, April 2015
This was my favorite experience of my entire 10-day trip to Italy. First, you have to understand that the Tuscan countryside, Chianti region, is BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL and not to be missed if you are in Florence. The tour meets in the heart of Florence and then the 2 guides take the group in a small bus to a charming, small villa in the Chianti countryside where you get to practice riding the Vespa scooters. Our group was small, 5 people, and I was the only one with any experience on a scooter. No problem the guides very quickly taught us ride with confidence. The Vespas are easier to ride than a bicycle! Yes, really. Were rode for hours on charming, small roads. Around every corner is another amazing view of vineyards, villas, monasteries, etc. The wineries we visited, including Ruffino, were interesting and beautiful. Our guides, Andreas and Lorenzo were always nearby, watching us ride and were so knowledgeable about the reqion and the winemaking process. Andreas had grown up on a nearby farm! After the ride, we enjoyed a very nice lunch, included some delicious cheeses, balsamic vinegar and 2 Chianti Classico wines from Ruffino. The 6-7 hour duration of the tour was long enough for some, but I could've jumped on the Vespa again for the rest of the day the tour was THAT GOOD! Regardless of whether you have any experience on a scooter, this tour is not to be missed. If I go back to Florence, I will do it again and recommend it to everyone who goes.

My husband and I had a wonderful time on this tour. We chose to share a two-person Vespa and it was a great choice! The views were beautiful, the wine tasting was wonderful, and the staff was very helpful. On our 16 day trip, we both agreed this was our favorite thing.
