Explore the Tuscan hills by Vespa scooter on a day trip from Siena, and visit a Chianti winery for lunch, too! After a practice session, choose to drive your own scooter or hop on behind a tour escort -- (depends on the option selected). Under the watchful eyes of a guide and tour escorts, ride in a convoy, heading to a Chianti winery in the lush Tuscan countryside. Tour the vineyards and cellars, sit down for a wine-tasting session, and then relax over an ‘antipasto’ lunch before returning to Siena.
Meet your guide and tour escorts at your hotel, they'll drive you to Badesse where you'll put on your helmet and get acquainted with your quintessentially Italian mode of transport – a beautiful Vespa scooter! After a safety briefing and a few practice sessions to get used to the Vespa’s automatic gears, follow the lead of your guide and set off on your way. Alternatively, hop on behind one of your tour escorts if you prefer not to drive yourself.
Following your guide, take a leisurely drive through the Chianti Area, passing by Lornano, Fonterutoli you'll reach Castellina in Chianti where you'll get the change to visit this Etruscan village.
Half-way through the day, stop at a Chianti winery in the heart of the region to learn all about winemaking in Tuscany. Explore the vineyards and cellars with your guide, and then taste several local wines, including prestigious varieties such as Chianti Classico, Gallo Nero and Super Tuscan. After your wine-tasting session, sit down inside the winery and enjoy a traditional Tuscan lunch of cured meats, mild cheeses, freshly baked bread and olives, while chatting with your guide about life in the idyllic Chianti region.
Then, head into the luscious Chianti hills of Tuscany, passing along quiet countryside lanes that meander through medieval villages and flower-filled fields. If you’ve chosen to share your scooter with a traveling companion, there will be plenty of breaks factored in to stop and switch drivers, or to simply stretch your legs while soaking up the views.
Spend some free time here relaxing in the sunshine before driving back into Badesse where you'll leave your Vespa and your driver will drop you off back to your Hotel in Siena.
