Meeting point and check in will be on Via Curtatone n.9, outside cafe Gamberini, a few minutes walk from the main Florence train station. Departure by 9:30am. In our comfortable air-conditioned 8-seats minivan you will be taken to the heart of the Chianti region where some of the most famous wines are produced.
After a basic orientation, there will be a driving test that will help our guides deciding if all the participants will be able to drive safely their own vespa. The ones that will not pass this test and those who had already decided not to drive, will be passengers with our guides. Couples may decide to share a vespa. This is possible only in the case the driver is well experienced. Childrens and minors in general, will partecipate as passengers. We have a very comfortable Tuk Tuk (Ape Calessino) at their disposal. For security reasons all decisions will be taken by our guides that have the responsability of the vespa tour.
We’ll ride along scenic roads on the beautifull rolling hills of the tuscan countryside. We’ll have a few stops along our way with great photo ops. Our informative guides will introduce the participants to the history of the San Gimignano area and will entertain the group. They will also provide information about the wine and olive oil making and other relevant features of the region.
On our way we’ll stop for a guided visit to the medieval town of San Gimignano, worlwide known for its impressive medieval towers. We’ll visit the world champion Dondoli gelato and the 1300 Museum, then we’ll reach the top of the hill to enjoy the magic panoramic view of the Chianti region.
Back to the farm, we’ll be ready to enjoy a typical tuscan lunch combined to a wine tasting class. The wine expert will present a list of local produced wines to be paired with a three courses traditional meal featuring antipasti toscani, ribollita soup and lasagna covered with a nice drop of truffle oil. At the winery you will have the opportunity to purchase and ship tuscan wines.
It’s time to come back to Florence. We’ll be at the same meeting place near by the Santa Maria Novella train station around 5:00 pm.

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.
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.
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!
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!
