The Vespa Trip

TUSCANY, SUMMER 2017

The Vespa Trip is a 7-day adventure that’ll take you to the most famous Italian villages along breathtaking picturesque Tuscan roads and sceneries on an original Vespa

Adventure on Italian Wheels...

Forget the stuffy busses, noisy bars and expensive rental cars! Nothing comes close to the freedom and sheer exhilaration of zipping through Tuscany on the back of a swanky Vespa with The Vespa Trip!

Smell the alluring aromas of sun-baked pine trees, vineyards and olive groves. Take in the sights and sounds before sitting down to a full lunch at a quaint family owned restaurant which nestles amongst the Florentine hills.

FAQs

What about our luggage?

We have our own Vespa Trip Van that will follow the whole journey and will carry your luggage. It will be driven by a guy named Luigi who happens to know a lot about Vespa’s.

What kind of hotels are we sleeping in?

Throughout the whole week we’ll sleep in 3 and 4 stars hotels which are carefully selected by our team. The hotels mentioned under "The Travel Schedule" are last edition's hotels and can slightly differ this summer.

Can I drive my Vespa without a back-seat passenger?

Standard option is a vespa by 2, but if you prefer to drive solo, it is possible at an additional cost of 100 GBP

Can we drive on our own?

Of course you'll be able to drive on your own for the whole journey. We will hand you over a detailed road book where you will find the most beautiful little roads and things to see underway. However you can also opt for following our front Vespa driver who knows the entire area as his backpocket.

How should I get to Pisa/Florence?

There are plenty of airlines who will take you back and forth to Pisa or Florence for less than 100 bucks from anywhere in Europe. Another option could be to land in Milan and take a train to Pisa / Florence. Of course, you could also drive the way up to Pisa or Florence. You can easily park for free for the full week near the city center. If you need any help with booking flights, you can call or e-mail us, we'll be happy to help!

When and where does it kick off?

On the first day of the trip, we'll meet at our first hotel. Somebody from The Vespa Trip will meet you at the reception lobby and hand you over all the necessary information. You can check-in after 15h00. We'll send you the address of the hotel one month before the trip. That evening around 8 pm, we'll organize a welcome drink in a local bar. The Vespa Trip starts the next morning: after some driving instructions, do's and don'ts, we'll leave the city center, and will be back on saturday evening. After a final dinner & party that evening, the next morning The Vespa Trip is finished!

Insurances

At the moment of booking, you can optionally choose for the Allianz Travel Assistance insurance. This covers physical damage, disease and repatriation. At the rent-out of the Vespa, an 800 € guarantee is asked. You can optionally choose for a 50€ Damage Control Insurance to limit the loss to 800 €.
