The Vespa TripFlorence
The Weekend Trip in Florence will guide you through the world famous Chianti vineyard sceneries & cities in the surrounding area of Firenze. 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.

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
