Overview
Escape from the crowded streets of the city to see life as a local as you zip around the stunning Tuscan countryside on a REAL Vespa (with automatic gears)! The tour is perfect for all levels as we always begin with a lesson so that beginners may get the hang of driving. After the lesson, the real fun begins. We will zip through the winding country roads and stop for pictures along the way. You won't want to forget your camera on this trip - the sights are incredible and you will be in the heart of the Chianti region! After our picture break we will continue driving until we return to a private Tuscan winery to learn a little bit about how local wine and olive oil is created. With this tour you won't feel like just another tourist, you will get to explore Chianti like a real local!
