A Vespa Trip through Tuscany: Il Giro Classico
The Giro Classico is the only Vespa Trip where you actually travel from hotel to hotel. Departure and arrival is in Pisa, the stages are each between 70 and 120 kilometers. Everything is arranged for you, from overnight stay to luggage transport. Every day you ride your trusty two-wheeler through a different landscape. From the stretched countryside around Pisa, through the rolling hills of the Chianti region and the mountain region around Lucca to the art cities of Siena and Firenze. Every town or village you pass is a pearl. Some of them are hidden gems, others world famous.
With its rolling hills, winding country roads, historic cultural cities, medieval mountain villages and extensive vineyards and olive groves, Tuscany is the Italy of dreams.
Versatile Sicily by Vespa
Sicily appeals to the imagination of many travelers. Everything that makes Italy beautiful can be seen enlarged here: the pure food, the delicious wines, the strong espresso and the overwhelming nature. The landscape is rugged, with imposing cliffs and rocky outcrops, but also has rolling hills, rich vegetation and fantastic beaches. And what could be better to discover this island on a classic Vespa? Enjoy the endless days under the Sicilian sun while driving, a daily dip in the sea and unlimited amounts of refreshing granitas, cannoli and brioche con gelato.
With The Vespa Trip in Sicily you get all the ingredients for a wonderful holiday: beautiful towns, unspoilt nature, extensive beaches and an azure blue sea, Sicilian cuisine and plenty of secret places to discover on your Vespa every day.
Exploring the Amalfi Coast with a Vespa
You can also explore one of the most beautiful stretches of coast in Europe on your Vespa. After you’ve conquered many spectacular winding bends, past small bays with steep cliffs, endless blue water and pearly villages, you can also leave the famous Amalfi Coast behind for a while. Venture a little more inland, away from the traditional tourist trail. Numerous sleepy but typically Italian villages give you a completely different feeling from the other villages on the coastline. Immerse yourself in culture and history with a visit to the famous Vesuvius volcano and the historic town of Pompeii.
