T

Join your bent for freedom and adventure with your passion for the best Italian food!
This is the perfect tour for visitors of Tuscany who want to admire its spectacular landscapes at the ideal pace while riding a Vespa scooter and who are willing to taste as much as possible of its local specialties!



The best way to enjoy Tuscany!
Arianna & Friends arranges a full-day Vespa tour with a local guide with focus on food specialties in the area of the
Vespa Museum (not included in the following program) near Pisa and Volterra.

Here the outline of this tour:

- Day Vespa rental (6 hours) starting from the Railway Station of Pontedera (town of the Vespa Museum), 15 minutes from Pisa Central Station and 45 minutes from Florence Santa Maria Novella Station. Alternatively, the tour can start from our main office in Peccioli, Pisa area.

- A fantastic, panoramic and safe route across the rural Tuscany in the area of the Pisan hills, a region very famous for its excellent wines, extra virgin olive oil, salamis as well as picturesque medieval castles and enchanting villages.

- A private English speaking Vespa guide accompanying you for the whole trip. The guide shows you the villages and the attractions along the route with a particular focus on the landscapes, the local traditions and the historical and agricultural framework of the territory.

- More about the route & the food:

- a short visit to the medieval hamlet of Lari with access to a famous small artisanal pasta factory. Possibility to visit a charming medieval castle, with a little surcharge;

- a stop at a typical oil mill, belonging to a cinta senese piglet farm that produces organic salami and cold cuts. Here is where guided sampling of extra virgin olive oils is arranged, with a detailled explanation of the sampling techniques. The sampling of oils is accompanied by a little snack of organic cold cuts produced by the farm.

- a stop at the spectacular Teatro del Silenzio, in Lajatico, the birthplace of Andrea Bocelli. This is the very scenic open air arena where the worldwide famous artist arranges a yearly concert that attracts thousands of people every year;

Upon request, we can arrange a full lunch at the oil mill, made of an antipasto of salami and mixed cold cuts, bruschette with pates, olives and focaccia produced by the farm, along with a primo with spaghetti or maccheroni (from the company we visited in Lari) and pork meat ragù sauce from the farm.

- Helms provided

- Insurance included*

- Roadbook on the route
with all information on what you see during your excursion

- Please, note that this offer is for maximum 8 Vespas, for min. 2 max 16 people.



* Please, note that the insurance refers to liability against third parties. The regular insurance does not cover the vespa riders themselves and their own vespa.

Before booking this tour it's essential for you to understand that the tour is addressed to people who have at least a basic experience in driving a scooter/vespa/motorbikes. If you never rode a scooter it is impossible for you to be able to ride it along the routes that the guide selected. Every tour starts with a 15-20 minutes practice that are necessary for the rider to get confident with the scooter, especially to understand how brakes and accelerator works. The time for the practice is absolutely not enough to learn how to ride a scooter, for which people might need long hours or even days. So we need to make sure that you are already familiar with riding a 2 wheel vehicle, and the tour will not be your first occasion to ride a scooter. This is a necessary prerequisite for safety reasons and for guaranteeing a pleasant tour to you and your friends. Modern vespas have automatic transmissions. If you choose the vintage vespas you must have a real experience in driving motorbikes with manual gear. On the day of the tour if you are not able to ride the scooter properly, the guide can refuse to give the tour and you would not be entitled to a refund.
Drivers must have a car driving license or a 125 cc motorbikes driving license.

Testimonials

COMMENTS OF OUR GUESTS

This is an email we received Karen in October 2014 after a day tour she enjoyed with Massimo:

Dear Massimo and Arianna,
I just wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful Vespa tour of Tuscany. My husband, sister and I had the pleasure of this experience on Sunday, September 14th. Massimo, you were a fantastic tour guide! We loved our day in the Tuscan countryside, visiting all of the wonderful places. I am now very picky about my olive oil! This tour was definitely a highlight of our trip to Italy and I highly recommend it to anyone who would like a one-of-a-kind experience!
Warm Regards,
Karen

COMMENTS OF OUR GUESTS

This is an email we received from Sandi, who booked a full day Vespa & Food tour with Massimo:

Happy Friday to you!!
I was wondering if you had some pictures for us that you can send us (one that people would love is when we were in front of the truffle place) and anything else would be great!
Hope all is going well for all of you! Sure do miss the beautiful countryside of Italy….
We have entered fall here, which means snow is just around the corner for us. (sad face)
Thanks again for the trip of a lifetime! I have shared your website to many people and when they are ready to take the best vacation ever in Italy, they will contact you!!!

COMMENTS OF OUR GUESTS

This is an email we received from Peter and Samantha, who booked a day excursion on Vespa scooter throughout Tuscany on their cruiseship stop at Livorno port:

Arianna,

I wanted to thank you again for the wonderful experience my wife and I had in Tuscany last October. The tour you and your fantastic staff arranged for us during our brief stay in tuscany was memorable and unforgettable.
We were picked up and driven to Pontadera (Home of Vespa) for a tour of the Vespa Museum and then jumped on our vespa to tour the countryside of Tuscany on our own (with a little help from your laminated directions).
I want you to know that that day was the absolute highlight of our entire Mediteranean cruise and one day which will be with us both forever.
I look forward to our next visit to your beautiful part of the world and I guarentee that I will be in contact with you and your staff as soon as arrangements are made to travel.
I will not hesitate to recommend you and your tours to all of my friends and work collegues as it was a wonderful experience for us both.
Regards and best wishes,

Peter and Samantha
