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.

Great day out

Great experience, loved the horse riding, the town we visited was beautiful, unfortunately I was too hungover to do the wine tasting and lunch but the staff were so friendly and accomodating of my self inflicted illness which was much appreciated ! Would definitely come back to experience the whole day as per the actual plan..

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.

A totally enjoyable day.

A totally enjoyable experience. Our guide, Guido, the self-proclaimed King of Tuscany did a great job. Our visit to the two wineries, that included lunches were both great. Also, the visit to San Gimignano was a pleasant time. One of the best memories of our stay in Florence.
