Route Schedule Pricing & availability

Tuscany

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.
