The region around Siena is known for its sumptuous landscapes, filled with world-famous vineyards.
THE CHIANTI REGION
There's no better way to discover Chianti than on an authentic Italian Vespa. During your trip you'll cross vineyards, timeless villages like San Gimignano and Montepulciano and you'll be treated to endless amazing sights across the hills of Tuscany.
You'll stay in Siena, a medieval city where you can find numerous traces of the past. It's the perfect place to start your adventure on the roads of the Chianti region.
Starting from Siena, we have planned three beautiful day trips that will allow you to discover as much of the Tuscan backwoods as possible. 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.
This first track (140 km) takes you via Greve & Radda in Chianti to the gates of Florence, the city of Michelangelo & Da Vinci
The second track (85 km) guides you to some gems of the region: San Gimignano, Volterra & Monteriggioni.
The third route brings you South of Siena where high quality wines are produced. Every village you'll drive past will ring a bell for the wine connaisseurs. Montepulciano and Montalcino became world famous.
Hotel Garden**** is situated just 600m from the medieval town center of Siena. It has typical Italian rooms, a refreshing pool and a breathtaking view you can enjoy during a delicious breakfast.*
*For the period 27th - 31st May this is the Four Points by the Sheraton hotel.

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 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.
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).

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.
