  • 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.

    Cristian and Alex are AH-MAZ-ING! Amazing! The most patient, kind, friendly, beautiful humans taught us how to drive gorgeous vintage Vespas through the Tuscany hillsides and it was so much fun. A bucket list, dream come true for me. We stopped at a breathtaking private estate overlooking Firenze to eat delicious food with wine. With full tummies and happy souls, we rode back in bliss to the cleanest garage I’ve ever seen. An experience of a lifetime, you can’t miss this tour! Don’t even think twice, book this now!

    Fantastic day! We hired a Vespa for two and had such a fun time. No need to worry about whether or not you’ve got experience on bikes as it is quite straight forward and you get a test run anyway. Chris the tour guide was a seriously nice guy who excelled at his job. Most enjoyable thing we did in Italy! Must do!!

    Cristian and Gabriel were amazing! Seriously if you are considering doing a Vespa ride outside of the city, I can’t recommend Walk About Florence enough. You can choose double or single and there was a group of about 20 of us all together. They have a lead car and a follow car and for the most part you are on small Italian roads. The views and whole experience was wonderful. 10/10 recommend!!!
