The Vespa Trip route in Tuscany will guide you to some of the most world known Tuscan cities and will let you enjoy the famous vineyard views along the way.
The first Vespa Trip in 2015 was organized in Tuscany. Of course, with a very valid reason. From the moment you'll leave a city, you'll find yourself in the middle of the beautiful landscapes Italy has to offer you. In this region, a boring road is exceptional.
Every village or city you'll see is a beauty. Some of them are hidden pearls, others are known around the globe. Each day, we'll take you through a different landscape. From the stretched farm lands around Pisa, via the hills of the Chianti region and the mountainous area around Lucca to medieval cities like Siena and Florence.

Our Giro Classico starts and ends in Pisa, the trips are always between 70 and 120 km. On a daily basis you can choose to drive the routes on your own (using road book & gps), or you can follow our guide to drive completely carefree.
We've selected hotels for you that, because of their location, are the perfect stops during your road trip in Tuscany.
IT'S THE JOURNEY, NOT THE DESTINATIONPricing & availability
The Vespa Trip explained
Your own Vespa
Throughout your trip you will get your own Vespa! On your arrival day the paperwork will be taken care of and on Tuesday morning you will get your keys. If you booked the Start-To-Vespa lessons, you will receive them on Monday. On Friday you return to Pisa and it's time to goodbye to your beloved Vespa.
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 €40.
Every morning you can enjoy an included breakfast. For lunch, we daily recommend you the best spots in the places we stop. For dinner, you'll be invited to join your fellow Vespa trippers or you can ask your guides for good restaurants around.
Our very muscular Luigi will take care of your luggage. Every morning, he'll put all your suitcases in our van to drive them to the next hotel.

How do I get to Italy?
The best way to get to Pisa is to fly to the International Airport of Pisa Galileo Galilei. The hotel is only 20 minutes walk from the airport. Another option is to take a bus (only €3pp) or a taxi to the hotel (around €20). You can always drive there and park your car on the secured parking space next to the hotel (approximately €90).
When and where does it start?
You will be welcome on Monday in the hotel from 15 PM till midnight where somebody from the Vespa Trip will arrange the administration and give you the road book. You will have the time to relax and discover the city. The first night, you'll be invited to have a drink with the other Vespa Trippers. Your Vespa Trip will start on Tuesday.
The adventure comes to its end on Friday evening. You spend one last night in Pisa before you go back home.
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.
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.
