The Tuscany is one of Italy's most charming and picturesque regions, with its beautiful rolling countryside, perched medieval villages and miles of coastline. Travelling in Vespa in Tuscany, through this bucolic region, offers visitors the opportunity to discover all its beauty at a relaxed, intimate pace.

Why rent a Vespa to explore Tuscany?

Choosing a Vespa as a means of transport offers several advantages for those wishing to visit Tuscany:

  • Freedom: Unlike organized tours by car or coach, touring Tuscany on a Vespa allows you to follow your own itinerary and set your own timetable. You can stop wherever you like and spend as much time as you like in each place.
  • Accessibility : the small villages perched on the hills, typical of Tuscany, are often difficult to reach by car, due to their narrow, winding streets. The Vespa, on the other hand, can easily venture into these areas.
  • Economy : the Vespa consumes much less fuel than a car, which translates into considerable savings during your trip.
  • Easy parking : It may seem trivial, but finding a place to park in the densely populated towns and villages of Tuscany can be difficult. The Vespa, being much smaller than a car, offers extra flexibility when it comes to parking.
  • A unique sensation: finally, the sheer pleasure of driving through the Tuscan countryside with the gentle breeze and the scent of cypress trees is unequalled!

Suggested Vespa itineraries in Tuscany

Depending on its location, there are a multitude of itineraries from your vacation rental to enjoy the region with your hair in the wind (well, your helmet in the wind! :-)). We recommend itineraries of less than 150km. Beyond that, it's tiring and you won't get the most out of it.

Itinerary 1: Florence - Pisa - Lucca - San Gimignano

This itinerary takes you through some of Tuscany's most famous cities. You'll start by exploring Florence, cradle of the Italian Renaissance, before continuing west to Pisa with its famous leaning tower. Then head north to Lucca, a charming town surrounded by perfectly preserved medieval walls. Finally, end your journey with a visit to San Gimignano, a hilltop village known for its high towers and breathtaking views over the Tuscan countryside.

Route 2: Siena - Montepulciano - Pienza - Val d'Orcia

Start this route in the magnificent city of Siena, famous for its annual Palio and its superb shell-shaped Piazza del Campo. Then head east to Montepulciano, famous for its red wines, and Pienza, a small town that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its Renaissance buildings.

Continue south into the Val d'Orcia area, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The landscapes of this region have inspired many artists for centuries, and you'll quickly understand why as you drive the winding roads through green hills dotted with cypress trees and isolated farmhouses. We also recommend taking a break in this region. wine tasting (no consumption!)

Route 3: Towards the Tuscan coast

If you want to combine your exploration of the Tuscan countryside with a few days' relaxation on the beach, this is the itinerary for you. Start by exploring the interior - you can choose between Florence, Siena or another starting point - then head west towards the coast.

You'll soon reach the Riviera della Versilia, famous for its fine sandy beaches and elegant seaside resorts such as Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi. If you prefer wild, natural landscapes, continue further south to the Maremma, where you'll find miles of unspoilt coastline with dunes, pine forests and hidden coves.
