Tuscany on a Vespa

7 Days

There’s no denying that Tuscany is one of the most beautiful parts of Italy, but even we’ll agree that there are some parts that are best enjoyed on the back of two wheels. With our Tuscany on a Vespa Tour – we’re sure that you’ll feel as exhilarated as you are satisfied.

With a highly trained and qualified guide, you’ll be taken on an exploration of the countryside, the streets of the local towns (including the iconic Cortona and the majestic Montepulciano), where you’ll get to savour the traditional tastes and enjoy the finest of wines.

Some of the landmarks on your trip date back to the early 13th Century, so for fans of ancient locations, traditional attractions and everything in between – this is the tour for you.

As if all of the above doesn’t sound exciting enough; you’ll also get to enjoy a world-class cooking lesson with an Italian chef, where you’ll get to create a 4 course meal and enhance your culinary skills in the process.

Your tour will also take you to the famous Lake Trasimeno, as well as allowing you to explore medieval towns, walk through vineyards, and capture stunning panoramic photos. If you’re worried about driving your moped, we can even have a driver take the handles on your behalf.

This exciting tour takes place every Saturday from the 4th of May until the 7th of September. You’ll need to book as a pair at the minimum to take advantage of this luxury trip; we also accept groups, making this tour ideal for families and friends, too.
