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 our office in Florence.
Please read our FAQs before you book this tour
Follow our locally-based guide up and over Mugello, to the Northern side of the Arno river on small, quiet roads rather than the usual busy routes. Our ride takes us on lovely country roads through small hamlets and villages nestled beneath the Mugello mountains. San Piero a Sieve is our first destionation, and we can admire its imposing Medieval walls and Medici-style architecture, then we continue on to a winery for a visit and tasting (not too much!). You can learn to taste your wine and look for specific fruits and grapes taste in it: many grapes will also show a spectrum of possible fruit scents that help you to identify the growing conditions—cool climate, moderate or very warm—of the vineyard. After the wine tasting, we will hop back on our Vespas for a ride to the lovely village of Fiesole, affording breathtaking views over downtown Florence... but not only that! Fiesole is an old Etruscan town, with a stunning cathedral and even a Roman theater, so, whether you would just like to stop for a few minutes to sip a cappuccino or for a more in-depth visit of the monuments, Fiesole will surprise you with its typical Tuscan charme. One final twisting descent takes up back to Florence.
Combine the freedom and exhilaration of touring by scooter with the amazing food, wine, and beauty of Tuscany.
