What people are saying about Fiesole
What a fantastic tour this is Edwardo ensured we were ok with the Vespa before we set off it is many years since my husband has ridden 2 wheels so the practise was helpful especially when I got on the back! We started off from the office & drive through the streets of Florence up towards Fiesole which gave stunning views of Florence below us. After a short break we got back in the Vespa & went round the outskirts of Florence up towards piazzale Michelangelo again with stunning views of the city. Edwardo was very informative whenever we stopped giving lots of history about the area This is a tour with a difference & we both thoroughly enjoyed it - the time went so quickly would really recommend this if you have time
We had an amazing few hours exploring the outskirts of Florence and the Chianti region with our drivers Hamid and Luca, both very knowledgeable and great company. This was definitely the best way to get a wonderful view of the city and then enjoy the Chianti countryside. We booked as passengers, with two drivers, and I strongly suggest this is the best way to enjoy the trip as driving yourself requires high competency on a Vespa and you then need to focus on the road and other drivers rather than be able to enjoy the scenery. Thanks to Hamid and Luca for a fantastic few hours and highly skilled driving and commentary.
We had never ridden a Vespa before and were surprised when the company had us practice in the parking lot. My fiancé passed the test but I didn’t. I was dissappointed but the instructor had me ride on his with him and I’m very happy I wasn’t riding. You go on high ways, round abouts and weave through traffic on the vespas. The tour is outside of Florence in Tuscany and it’s a very beautiful surreal experience. The vespas went FAST at one point I looked down and saw we were going 55kph. Amazing experience but I wish I had known ahead of time that you needed motorcycle or Vespa experience.
I cannot say enough about my guide, Jimmy! The other couple was a no show soniy was just me and we had time for him to show me things he normally wouldn't have had time to. He is very knowledgeable and down to earth. You can't ask for a better guide. The views of Florence on this trip are nothing short of breathtaking!
Our guides, Eduardo and Leo, were great! The route they took us on was beautiful and fun - just the right combination of city and country. They also gave us information on the history and significance of what we were seeing. This was one of my favorite things of our 10 day trip. Do it!
