You can take these trips on your own (with the help of GPS & our road book) or with the help of our local guide. In addition to these day trips, we also designed two shorter routes that you can explore on your arrival or departure day.

FLORENCE

SAN GIMIGNANO

De tweede etappe (85 km) leidt je door een vlakker gebied waar je de pareltjes San Gimignano, Volterra en Montereggioni ontdekt.

THE VESPA TRIP EXPLAINED

your own vespa

You get your own Vespa during the entire trip. You will receive it on the day of arrival at 5 p.m. and return it on the last day at 12 p.m. in the afternoon. If you want to receive the keys of the Vespa a little earlier or keep hold of it for a bit longer, you can choose the "Early pick up" and / or "Late drop-off" . For example, the Vespa is yours the first day from 12 p.m. and you can return it at 7 p.m. the last 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 that's mounted on your scooter that shows you all the routes of the trip. If you decide not to follow our guide, Mario, you can go on your own adventure, without getting lost.

Food

Daily breakfast is included. We recommend restaurants for lunch and dinner although the hotel also offers light lunch and amazing dinners. In our basecamp, Siena, you will find some of the best restaurants in the region and for after dinner entertainment you can visit various local pubs.

TRANSFER

Every arrival and departure day you're invited to hop on our transfer bus to get to either Pisa or Florence airport or the hotel. The shuttle will go twice a day (before noon and in the later 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 Siena is to fly to the International Airport of Pisa or Florence and take our shuttle service to the hotel. Another option is to take a taxi to the hotel (around €70). You can also drive here and park your car on the parking of the hotel.
Upon your arrival at the hotel 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 trip. The next three days, our guide will show you all around the hills of Tuscany or you can go and discover the area by yourself. On the 5th and final day, you can go for a last trip 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.
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, the rental of your amazing Vespa, helmets and a lock, a GPS with the uploaded routes, a road book, the care of our Vespa Trip Guides and the experience of a lifetime. The fuel for your Vespa (around €20) is not included.
