Visit food producers by Vespa in the charming Tuscan countryside around Pontedera, hometown of the Vespa!


Most of the visitors to Tuscany do not know that Vespas are produced here!

The company is in Pontedera, right between Florence and Pisa.

This tour is a fantastic opportunity to ride a Vespa scooter and explore the beautiful hilly countryside of the Pisan Chianti just around Pontedera, an area famous for its excellent wine & food producers and for Andrea Bocelli's open air arena "Teatro del Silenzio".

A memorable day full of fun, delicious food and spectacular views!

NOTE:
This tour is planned with scooter for each 2 pax.
Moto rider traveller must show up with driving license, be 18 years or older and have some experience riding scooters.
