These tours have been developed and are now run in cooperation with De-Gustibus, tour operator based in Florence.
NOTE: You must arrive at the start of the tour already a safe, competent rider. We are not a motorbike school and our guides will refuse to take on tour any participant unable to ride safely. NO REFUNDS will be granted in this case.
The tour is quite advanced, so please do not come to "try" to ride: you have to be able to ride a scooter or a motorbike before you come to Radda.
Tuscany Scooter Rental: a Day in Chianti from Luca Magnoni on Vimeo.
Before hitting the open road we will have an orientation and safety talk (pls note this will NOT be a driving lesson). We head out on a very quiet stretch of road so you can get used to driving your Vespa. Indeed, this day is designed to get you very well acquainted with your Vespa. We then ride along two scenic ridge roads that offer wonderful views over the romantic Tuscan landscape and we arrive beneath the shadow of the mighty Brolio castle. We enjoy a short walk up to the castle to visit the park and gardens of this magnificent and historic building. After the visit, a thirty-minute ride takes us to the town of Gaiole or Castellina, where you will have free time to enjoy the view from the medieval walls and check out its antique shops and cafés and then enjoy a light Tuscan lunch in a local restaurant. After lunch, one last beautiful ride on our trusty Vespas takes us back to the village of Radda where we will end our adventure.

Please note when our credit card company releases the hold, as the deposit is not a charge, you will not see any refund on your card, you will just get the money available for you to spend on your card again (this will happen up to four days after the final charges are made (we have no control over it, nor does our credit card company).
