The Vespa TripTuscany
The Vespa Trip through Tuscany will guide you to some of the most famous cities of Italy while passing by the well-known and spectacular vineyard sceneries along the road. Tuscany is the home region of the Vespa and even The Vespa Trip and you will easily experience why.
The first Vespa Trip in 2015 was organized in Tuscany and that happened for a reason. From the moment you leave town, you will be confronted with breathtaking sceneries and winding roads.
There is almost no boring road in this region and every city along the road is a gem. Some of them kept secret and some of them world famous.
You depart from the city with one of the most renown towers in the world: Pisa. All Vespa's will be ready for you in a little place right next to this amazing tower.
After a first night in Pisa you'll have the chance to leave the busy Italian streets and cruise through the famous winding little roads of Tuscany towards our next destinations.
Important landmarks on the Route are the cities of San Gimignano, Siena, Firenze, Vinci, Lucca, Pisa and the awe-inspiring remoted village of Montefegatesi on top of the hills.You'll be able to cross some of the world’s most impressive vineyards and follow the beautiful Lima river.
After one week you will return to your departure point in Pisa.

The Vespa Trip explained

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).
