Italy Travel

Zip through Chianti’s winding back roads and quaint villages on an Italian classic. Not by a car or on a motorcycle but on a Vespa motor scooter.

This one-week tour, provided by Italy by Vespa, includes the use of a new-model, European-spec ET4 125s Vespa (in Ferrari red), seven nights accommodation at Radda’s historic Palazzo Leopoldo, a cooking class at a Michelin-starred restaurant in addition to guided tours to some of the region’s top wineries, castles, and private estates.

Optional activities may include a day of luxury that begins with a shiatsu massage and a trip to the Italian designer Salvatore Ferragamo’s private estate where you will be treated as an honored guest.

Or it may include a day of Chianti tasting and hiking through a local forest in search of porcini mushrooms. For the “scooter-challenged” a Vespa orientation and rider safety training is offered. Customized tours for groups of ten or more is available. More information available online.
