Sicily No other island in the world appeals more to the imagination

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.

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.

Driver's licence

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.

inexperienced?

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.

GPS

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.

Food

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.

TRANSFER

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).

FAQs

Yes, that's possible. However, there is a single driver supplement of €120 per person. If you sleep alone in the room, there's a supplement of €250.
Both are possible, so you decide! With our road book and GPS you should be able to drive the journey independently. However, you can also opt to follow our front Vespa driver, who knows the entire area like the back of his hand.
The best way to get to Sicily is to fly to Palermo or Trapani International Airport and take our shuttle service to the hotel. Another option is to take the bus (around €10 in total) or a taxi to the hotel (around €60). You can always drive there and park your car on the parking space at the hotel.
The first day you arrive to the hotel and you will arrange the administrative check-in. You can check-in from 2 p.m. onwards. Then you'll receive the keys to your Vespa, your road book, the GPS and you can already go for a short first drive to get to know your Vespa. The next three days, our guide will show you all around the Sicilian coast or you can go and discover things by yourself. On the 5th and final day, you can go for a last drive before you return the keys.

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.

Cancellation

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.

Travel Insurance

We also offer travel insurance that helps you in the event of an accident on the spot.

If you have never driven a Vespa we strongly recommend you to book a 'Start-to-Vespa' course. The first day, your guide will give you a practical explanation and you will be able to make a test ride. This will cost an additional €50 per person.
We recommend the best Italian restaurants in the evening. You can choose to opt in and have dinner with the other Vespa trippers or pick your own place to have dinner. It's completely up to you.
Five days and four nights at our four star hotel, breakfast, 3 full days of rental of your amazing Vespa per 2, helmets and a lock, a GPS with the uploaded routes, a road book, the care of our Vespa Trip Guide and the experience of a lifetime. The fuel for your Vespa is not included but it will be no more than €20 per Vespa.
