English speaking guided tour of the Vespa Museum in Pontedera - Tuscany


Some people do not know that the world famous Vespa scooter is produced by the company Piaggio, whose premises are located right in the middle of Tuscany, in small a town called Pontedera, near Pisa. In some of the historical premises of the company, some local institutions inaugurated the official Vespa Museum a few years ago.



Arianna & Friends brings you to visit the most interesting industrial museum of Tuscany. An English speaking tour leader (also German, French, Spanish and Russian available) collects you at your premises, or at an agreed meeting point, and leads you for a half-day tour.
We reach Pontedera and you have an introduction to the recent history of the town, so tightly related to the destiny of the Vespa scooter.
At the museum we meet one of the official museum guides who leads us through the history of the company beginning with the historical archive. The Piaggio company was founded in the second half of the 19th century and has followed all the stages of the contemporary Italian history, so through the exhibition you will understand the development of the nation in its last 150 years. Following the archive is a visit to a former working shed of Piaggio, where many old models of the famous scooter and other vehicles are exhibited. Each model is accompanied by interesting stories and legends in which you can find a lot of the local character. At the end of the visit you can browse hundreds of stylish goods of offical Vespa merchandise at the museum shop.
After visiting the museum you can enjoy an aperitif in Pontedera and have a walk in its large
pedestrian area for a shopping tour of Italian made clothes, bags and shoes.

The Piaggio Museum is an ideal attraction to be included in one of our
Vespa Tours in the rural area around Pontedera. Ask for it in the booking form belows.

COMMENTS OF OUR GUESTS


This is a message we receive from Rebecca on 26th February on our Tripadvisor profile, after she visited the Piaggio Museum with Massimo

Although I was in Italy on a group tour, I was able to take off on the odd couple of days and do my own thing. An absolute highlight was being taken throught the Vespa Museum by Massimo of Arianna and Friends. Massimo was waiting at Pontedera Station, and had given me excellent instructions on how to get there. We spent nearly 3 hours at the museum. Massimo translated what the guide was saying, and , being from the area for so many generations, was also able to share his family stories too - which were fascinating! I own a vespa, so was delighted to be able to see this iconic plant. But there were 4 other people on my tour who wish they had known about the museum as well. Thank you Massimo for an unforgettable day!
