Full description
Enjoy the freedom of the road on a 3-hour tour of Florence and its surrounding hills by classic Vespa moped. Discover the city like a local - but with more style. Meet at the tour operator's office and hop on your scooter to ride to Piazzale Michelangelo. Enjoy panoramic views of the domes and spires of the “Cradle of the Renaissance” and see the sunshine gleaming on the River Arno. Continue to San Miniato Convent in the Tuscan hills and experience a piece of medieval history up-close. Next, go to the picturesque town of Fiesole, just a few minutes outside the city center. This small town overlooks Florence and its surrounding hills and boasts one of the most spectacular views you will ever see. Learn a little about the Roman history of Fiesole, home to an original Roman amphitheater that is still in use to this day.

    Lucca was fantastic! This is the best tour myself and my partner have been on. The tour was around 4 hours long and we covered around 60 miles of Florence (both the city and the hill side). He took us to the most beautiful views and told us the history of each place we went to. He was very easy to get along with and treated us to a coffee and ice cream along the way. Would definitely recommend to everyone, this is the best way to see so much of Florence which you wouldn't have the chance to do otherwise. Thanks a lot Lucca, from Lucy and Lewis!

    This is a must do activity. You see so much of the surrounding areas of Florence, some beautiful viewpoints and quaint villages. You get to stop off at various places to take it all in. Our guide Luca, was really nice and knowledgeable, really pleased we had someone like him to make for a brilliant experience. Thank you!

    Exhilarating Adventure around Florence and Chianti

    We had an amazing few hours exploring the outskirts of Florence and the Chianti region with our drivers Hamid and Luca, both very knowledgeable and great company. This was definitely the best way to get a wonderful view of the city and then enjoy the Chianti countryside. We booked as passengers, with two drivers, and I strongly suggest this is the best way to enjoy the trip as driving yourself requires high competency on a Vespa and you then need to focus on the road and other drivers rather than be able to enjoy the scenery. Thanks to Hamid and Luca for a fantastic few hours and highly skilled driving and commentary.
