The Amalfi Coast is world famous for providing some of the world's most breathtaking views, the most beautiful blue waters and the most impressive cliffs at the sea side.
The Amalfi coast
The region around the Amalfi Coast is world renowned for the kilometres of breathtaking views you can experience while driving through. Extremely high cliffs, endless blue water and spectacularly windy roads.
Besides this exhilirating scenery you also find the Mount Vesuvius and the historic city of Pompeii in the same area. The countryside is much less well known but you can find a beautiful well-preserved secret national park over there.
VESUVIUS & POMPEII
In the centre of the Sorrentine Peninsula, you'll find Sant'Agata. From there, we'll explore the region and cover the coastlines as well as the interland. Either you follow our guide or you explore the routes by yourself with guidance of our road book and GPS.
In the first stage (75 km) you discover the Northern coastline of the Amalfi Coast, you climb the Vesuvius and you can visit the ancient village of Pompei.
In this second track (65 km) you'll discover the pearls at the Southern coast of the peninsula: Amalfi, Ravello and of course, Positano. This road has been awarded "Most beautiful road in Europe" multiple times.
HILLS OF AMALFI
For this route you'll drive land inwards into the hills of the Amalfi region. You'll reach Monte Faito and Bagni Giovanna, both offering you fantastic views of the area.
The four star hotel O Sole Mio**** is situated in the hills of the Amalfi region around Sorrento. Because of her central position, she's the perfect basecamp for your trips.
The hotel offer us delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner, a lobby with bar, a refreshing pool, comfortable rooms and a spacious parking space.

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 need a driver’s license for a normal car (B) or a motorcycle driver’s license (A). The license AM is not accepted. You need to be 18 to drive the Vespa's, but minors can of course join as a passenger. If you're a European citizen, your national DL is sufficient, but if you're from outside the EU, you'll need an international one.
Never driven a Vespa before? Don't worry! On your arrival day, you can opt to have a Start-To-Vespa course (+ €50 per person). Our guide will explain you the tips and tricks of driving a Vespa and you'll make together a calm test drive the day before you'll actually take off.
If you prefer to drive The Vespa Trip on your own pace without following our guide Mario, you can reserve a GPS that will be mounted on your Vespa. You can get your GPS when you receive your Vespa and it costs €30.
Daily breakfast is included. We recommend restaurants for lunch and dinner on a daily basis. The hotel also offers light lunch and amazing dinners. In our basecamp, Sant'Agata, you will encounter some of the best restaurants in the region and you can also check out the local pubs for some after dinner entertainment.
Every arrival and departure day, if you take our recommended flights (found in the FAQ's below), you're invited to hop on our transfer bus to get to the airport or the hotel.

When and where does it start?
What’s our target audience?
The average age of The Vespa Tripper in 2019 was 34,6 years old, but the biggest age group are the twenty-somethings (50%). The other 50% is a wide range of ages between 30 and 75 years young. Needless to say, all Vespa Trippers share the same love for Italy, its gastronomy and its dolce-far-niente culture. Last edition, people came from more than 50 nationalities, most of them came from The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany & the UK.
Most people travel in a party of 2 to 4 persons: a mix of couples & friends. 16% were solo travelers. If you’d like to travel solo, send us a message and we’ll squeeze you in a week where there’s a lot of other solo travelers.
You are automatically insured for 3rd party damage. You will be asked to block a fee on your credit card upon arrival as an insurance against damage on your own Vespa. You'll be able to choose this insurance after registration.
If you book your trip between 6th and 20th November, we'll give you a free superflex cancellation insurance (worth €79). This insurance allows you to cancel your trip without reason nor costs until the 2nd April. From that moment, you will be able to upgrade the insurance to last longer.
You can no longer participate after 1st April, you cannot find a replacement, but luckily you chose to upgrade the cancellation insurance when registering? Great, you get a reimbursement of your entire registration fee (minus the cost of the insurance itself) as long as you have got a valid reason. You can find more information on this cancellation insurance here.
The insurance is often a small additional fee, but can save you a lot of bigger costs, which is why we advise our participants to take out the insurance. Of course, you better check with your health service provider to find out whether you are already insured abroad.
Start to Vespa?
If you've never driven a Vespa nor scooter before, we strongly advise you to book our Start-To-Vespa course (+ €50 per Vespa). Our guide will teach you how to handle your Vespa and give you some tips. Together, you'll make a test round until you feel comfortable enough. We highly recommend to take these lessons for the unexperienced!
