This planet gives us so much (natural) beauty to admire, but if we want to continue traveling to beautiful places in the future, we have to protect our planet today more than ever. That’s why we’ve added an option in our booking forms to offset the CO2-emissions of your trip in a trustworthy and certified way via Greentripper.
Explore genuine Puglia: Italy's best-kept secret! Encounter beautiful villages, a magnificent coastline, and immerse yourself in the laid-back Southern Italian lifestyle.
There is no better way to discover the heel of Italy than on an authentic, Italian Vespa. You will cross the picturesque surroundings of Puglia, feeling the warmth of the sun on your face and the wind blowing through your hair. During your rides, you will admire the typical Trulli houses in Alberobello, beautiful white villages such as Ostuni and Cisternino and the stunning coastline of Polignano a Mare. You'll also enjoy the vast olive groves and quiet winding roads, through all of Puglia.
After a day of cruising on your Vespa, enjoying the charm of the small Italian villages, you can mingle with the locals and dive into the wonderful Italian atmosphere! The Vespa Trip Puglia takes place in September & October. During these months, the temperatures are pleasant and there's less tourism than during the summer..It's the best moment to live fully the simple & peaceful southern Italian lifestyle.
Our starting point in Puglia is centrally located near Fasano, between Bari and Brindisi. You will discover the region through 3 different itineraries. You can choose to explore these routes on your own (using road book & GPS) or to follow our guides.
The order of the routes is flexible. If you are riding solo, you can choose your itinerary. If you ride with the group, you decide with the rest of the group which itinerary you want to follow according to your experience and the weather.
Polignano a Mare
Centrally located in Puglia you will find Masseria Don Sante, the perfect base for this trip. The beautiful Apulian country house offers a delicious, fresh and daily homemade breakfast each morning and an optional typical Italian lunch or dinner.
After a day of exploring on your Vespa, enjoy the refreshing pool and peaceful surroundings. The hotel is a 10-minute drive away from bustling Fasano, the ideal place for evening walks between the locals and to enjoy the wonderful, Italian atmosphere.
The Vespa Trip explained
What is included?
The price for The Vespa Trip starts from € 540 per person (early bird price) and includes:
- Four nights in a charming hotel, including daily breakfast
- The rent of your amazing Vespa, helmets and lock*
- A road book
- Parking at the hotel
- The care of the guides
- Probably the experience of a lifetime
The fuel for your Vespa (around €40 for the whole week), lunch and dinner are not included .
*This price is calculated on two people per Vespa. More information about driving alone can be found under 'your Vespa'.
Throughout the trip, you'll have your own 125cc Vespa at your disposal. You'll receive it the morning after your arrival, and return it on the last evening. The Vespa is yours for the whole trip, even during the evenings.
If you want to receive your Vespa earlier, or want to keep it a bit longer, you can choose the Early Pick-Up and/or the Late Drop-Off. With those options, the Vespa is yours from 2pm on your arrival day and/or you can return it at 2pm on your departure day (50 € per option).
Can I drive the Vespa solo?
The prices are calculated with the assumption that the Vespa is shared between 2 people. If you would like to drive solo, there is a supplement of 120 € per single driver.
Never driven a Vespa or scooter before? Then we strongly recommend you to take the Start-to-Vespa class. On your arrival day, the guide will give you all the information and an initiation to get the hang of Vespa driving and to be able to drive safely in Italian traffic. After this lesson you'll be ready to start your Vespa Trip. This class costs € 50 per person.
In order to drive our Vespas in Italy, you must have a driving license (B) or a motorbike license (A) and be 18+. The license (AM) is not valid. The passenger sitting in the back does not need to be 18 nor have a driving license. You have a European driving license? That's perfect! Your license isn't for Europe? Then you'll need to apply for an international driving license.
Daily breakfast is included in the price. For a lovely lunch or dinner, we always recommend some of our favorite restaurants. In Fasano, the home base for your Vespa Trip, you will find many cozy restaurants and nice bars.
The designed routes are uploaded on a GPS, which you can easily attach to the steering wheel of your Vespa. With this GPS (+ 30 €) you'll come by the most beautiful roads and arrive on the most stunning stops.
You are automatically insured for damage to third parties with your Vespa. For damage to your own Vespa you have two choices. Either you choose the omnium insurance (€ 89 per Vespa), where the own risk is € 0. If you don't want this insurance, a deposit of € 500 is required for which you are liable.
A month before departure you'll receive an email where you can choose one of these two options.
This insurance gives you the opportunity to book without worries. You'll be able to cancel your booking until the day of departure and receive a full refund, provided that you can show a valid reason for doing so. You can read the conditions here.
This travel insurance provides assistance in the event of an accident. Make sure you never travel uninsured!
