Overview

Ride a Vespa on quiet and scenic roads through the rolling hills of the Chianti region. Tour will take place in the heart of Tuscany, where some of our most famous Chianti wines are produced. If you have no driving license, you do not have any experience or you do not feel comfortable riding on your own, you may decide to be passenger with one of our guides. Fun will be guaranteed anyway! Along our itinerary we'll stop for great photo ops and we'll have the chance to visit the famous medieval town of San Gimignano, worldwide known as the "medieval Manhattan"! Inside the village, we'll stop at the fantastic 1300 Ceramic Museum and we'll visit the legendary Dondoli world champion gelato maker. Back on the vespas, we'll have more fun and more stunning panoramic views to enjoy! At the end of the Vespa ride we will visit a local winery where we will enjoy a great lunch with a guided Chianti wine tasting, during which you will have the pleasure to taste wines of local production. Couples have the option to share a vespa and get a total of 20 euros discount. Children (6-11 yo) can partecipate as passengers with our guides or an expert driver.

Not a tour but an unforgettable experience of Tuscany

I was travelling with my daughter & this was a highlight of our trip. The horse ride through Tuscany on a crisp, sunny morning in late Autumn was stunning, followed by a trip to the incredible San Gimignano & a delicious lunch on an even more beautiful vineyard.

Vespa Tour

The vespa tour was an absolute blast. Unfortunately the equipment supplied to Fun in Tuscany by a third party was not the most reliable, however, the scenery and ride was worth any trouble that may have been caused by said equipment.

AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!

Wow! What a wonderful experience! Our tour guide Christian was so much fun and welcoming, and the wine and lunch was amazing! Riding through the Tuscan countryside was beautiful, and our time at San Gimignano was so special. This was the highlight of my trip, and I could not recommend it more!

Amazing experience!

This blew my expectations out of the water. The guide made the travel between sites fun and educational. The wine tours were amazing and the stop in San Gimignano was awesome. We went for our honeymoon and the guide even threw in a surprise for my wife and I at the end of the tour. Would 100% recommend to others!
