Great tour ,lots of time on the scooters, we visited 2 wineries, had a beautiful lunch with a wine tasting at our final destination. This tour is not for the faint of heart as we rode alot and the roads are windy and travelled by all. But if you take your time enjoy the amazing scenery this will be a... More

Met in the city, walked 10min to a parked van which we took to a vineyard estate around 15 min drive outside Florence. Here we had practise riding the Vespas (proper ones in great condition). I had experience but if you are not confident riding on public roads after a 10 min lesson you might want to sit on the... More

What a fun day this was! We did our Vespa tour with Giacomo and Francesco who started by giving us a lesson on riding the Vespa, then off we went into the Tuscan country side. We were with our 18 year old son, who had a great time. We received information about wine making while visiting a winery, rode to... More

What a beautiful ride through stunning, rolling, Tuscany! Our guides took us to pick up our Vespas, making sure we knew the controls and ensuring that we had our helmets on and making sure we were comfortable on the Vespas/scooters (by making us all demonstrate driving in a circle) before heading off in a straight line. What a stunning ride... More

I would definitely recommend this for any mature visitors to Tuscany regardless of prior experience with vespas. The company meets you in Florence, drives you by van to a gorgeous villa about 30 minutes outside the city and takes you through a brief training course. Each potential driver is shown how to drive and practices the most difficult parts (driving... More

Just returned from this fantastic trip. A lot of fun - and even though I have NO experience with motor bikes - it was as easy as riding a push bike. Well done jawpo and Elisa - I truly believe you have the best job in the world!

We had a great experience. Our tour leader was very helpful and patient as some of us took a little longer to get comfortable on their Vespas - then off we went. The visit to the Ruffino vineyards and winery was our first stop and it was great. Our afternoon ride showed us lots of beautiful vistas with plenty of... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
