You haven't seen Italy until you've been to Sicily. On this beautiful island, formed by the sea and ancient cultures, you can discover the authentic Italian atmosphere from the good old days.
BENVENUTO IN SICILIA
Thanks to its rich history, endless sunny days, extremely friendly inhabitants and an atmosphere that makes you feel as if time has stood still for several decades, Sicily is the dream destination for many travelers.
We feel that the best way to explore this beautiful island is on a Vespa so that you can discover all the beautiful secrets the island has to offer.
The Vespa Trip will take you through West Sicily where you will find the most beautiful nature, beaches and the most important city (Palermo). As a base we chose Castellamare Del Golfo , a fishing village situated on a beautiful bay that, because of its central location, is the perfect starting point for the mapped routes.
In Sicily we offer you a central base (Castellamare Del Golfo), from where you can explore three completely different daily trips . You can choose to discover these routes on your own (using our road book & GPS), or follow the guide. We also planned two shorter routes that you can discover on your arrival or departure day.
This track (120 km) brings you to the salt fields of Marsala and the Greek temples of Segesta.
You'll discover the northern coast and the natural park of "Lo Zingaro",and the rock city from the Middle Ages: Erice. (100 km)
This track (148 km) takes you land inwards to the hills of Sicily. You'll find Santa Ninfa and Corleone on your way.
The four star hotel Cetarium **** is situated near the beautiful bay of Castellamare del Golfo. Because of the central position, its the perfect basecamp for your trips. The hotel offers a delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner, a lobby with bar, comfortable rooms and the perfect opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable evening.

THE VESPA TRIP EXPLAINED
your own vespa
You'll get your own Vespa throughout the whole trip. The morning after your arrival you will have your Vespa at your disposal from 8 am and you will hand it over the third and last Vespa day in the evening. If you want to receive the keys of the Vespa a bit earlier or want to keep them a bit longer you can choose for the "Early pickup" and/or "Late drop-off". This way the Vespa will be yours from 14h on your arrival day and you can return it at 14h on your departure day.
You will need a driver’s license for a normal car (B) or a motorcycle license (A). The license AM is not accepted. You need to be 18 to drive the Vespa's, but minors can always join as passengers. If you're a European citizen, your national license is sufficient, but if you're from outside the EU, you will need an international one.
Never driven a Vespa before? Not a problem! We offer the option to arrive early in the day (preferably before noon) and take a Start-to-Vespa course (+50€ per Vespa). Our guide will explain you the tips and tricks of driving a Vespa and make a calm test drive the day before the trip actually starts.
With the keys of your Vespa you'll also receive a GPS, mounted on your scooter, where you can see all the tracks of this trip. This way, you can go on your own adventure without getting lost.
Daily breakfast is included. We also recommend some of our favorite restaurants for a delicious lunch or dinner. The hotel offers light lunches and cozy dinners. Our homebase, Castellamare del Golfo, houses some of the best restaurants in the region and you will also find some great pubs where you can enjoy a drink after dinner.
On your arrival and departure day you're invited to hop on our transfer bus to get to the hotel or back to airport. The shuttle will go twice a day (before noon and in the late afternoon).

What about the insurance?
You are automatically insured for all damages to third parties. You will be asked to block an amount on your credit card to insure any damage to your own Vespa. You will be able to choose between different insurance policies after your registration.
We recommend that you take out a cancellation insurance, it doesn't cost much and it can potentially save you a lot of money.
If you can no longer participate, but you can find a replacement, you must send all the necessary information no later than 7 days before the departure date so that we can change the reservation free of charge.
If you take out a cancellation insurance and you apply to the conditions, you will be reimbursed for your trip (with the exception of the cancellation insurance costs).
If you have not taken out a cancellation insurance and you wish to cancel your trip, you will receive a maximum of 50% of the total amount in case you let us know more than 4 weeks before your departure date, 25% if you contact us 2-4 weeks before your departure and 0% if you let us know less than 2 weeks before the departure date.
We also offer travel insurance that helps you in the event of an accident on the spot.
