The Vespa TripSicily
Discover the most beautiful island in the world on a Vespa.
The Vespa trip Sicily
Sicily is without doubt one of the most appealing islands in the world. Thanks to its rich history, beautiful coastline, friendly people and a time that apparently stood still for a while it is the dream destination of many travellers. We believe there is no better way to discover the island's hidden secrets than on a Vespa.
The sicily route
During The Vespa Trip you will experience some of the most exhilarating Sicilian highlights. The route will bring you from the world famous salt mills of Trapani to some picturesque fisherman's villages. Afterwards you'll cross the forgotten Sicilian countryside and reach the beautiful coastline in Cefalu. You will drive back to Trapani while passing the natural park of Zingaro.
In group or self-guided.
You can experience The Vespa all on your own with a gps and road book, or you can follow the Vespa Trip Guide and experience the trip together with the other Vespa trippers. We can guarantee that either option you take, you will pass through the most beautiful Italian roads of the country. Also the luggage will be taken care of for everybody. (group rider and solo rider)
The Solo Adventurer
*You don't have to choose this in advance, you can choose every day to follow the guide or go solo. Don't worry about your luggage, we'll bring it to your next hotel.
The Vespa Trip explained
If you prefer to drive The Vespa Trip on your own pace without following our guide Mario, you can reserve a gps, that will be mounted on your Vespa. You can get your GPS when you receive your Vespa and it costs 30€
At departure, you’ll receive The Vespa Trip Roadbook, which will guide you through the Stages and mention some beautiful things to see & do along the road.
You can drop off your luggage in our Vespa Trip van each day for the "Round Trip". It will be delivered to your next hotel when you arrive. For the "Weekend Trips" your luggage will stay in your hotel.
Daily breakfast is included. We have daily recommended restaurants.
You need a driver’s license for a normal car (B) or a motorcycle driver’s license (A)
Never driven a Vespa before? Not a problem, but to enjoy the Vespa Trip as much as possible, we advise you to practice an afternoon at friends' homes with a scooter. For round trips, we offer the option to arrive early in the day (preferably before noon) and take a start-to-Vespa course (+ 50€ per Vespa) which starts at 2PM. Our guide will explain you the tips and tricks of driving a Vespa and make a calm test ride the day before the trip actually starts.

What about the insurance?
You are automatically insured for 3rd party damage. You will be asked to block a fee (around 800EUR) on your credit card upon arrival as an insurance against damage on your own Vespa.
We advise everyone to take out a cancellation insurance when they register. It is not expensive, and you can save yourself a lot of money.
Have you found someone who is willing to take your place? Fantastic! Getting yourself replaced is completely free, you do not need a cancellation insurance. You can no longer participate, you cannot find a replacement, but luckily you chose to get an optional cancellation insurance when registering? Great, you get a reimbursement of your entire registration fee as long as you have got a valid reason.
You can no longer participate, but you did not choose to take an optional cancellation insurance, nor can you find anyone to replace you? That's a shame! You will however receive something as long as you cancel long enough in advance. - 50% of the travel price gets reimbursed in case of >= 4 weeks before departure - 25% of the travel price gets reimbursed in case of 2-4 weeks before departure - 0% of the travel price gets reimbursed in case of =< 2 weeks before departure
The insurance is often a small additional fee, but can save you a lot of bigger costs, which is why we advise our participants to take out the insurance. Of course you better check with your health service provider to find out whether you are already insured abroad).
