Vespas are a popular method of travel in cities across Europe. Not only are they gas efficient, but they also make it easier to see parts of a city that would be too far to walk but too hard to navigate by car.
Boston-based newspaper, the Boston Metro, recommends seeing towns across Italy on a Vespa, which will allow you to snake your way through the winding streets and explore old cities in the same way that locals get around.
There are guided tours on Vespas in many cities including Rome and the region of Umbria. Learn how to properly maneuver the scooter before traveling around the beautiful Central Italian countryside, discovering everything from remote wineries to stunning medieval villages.
Guiliana Galli started one of the first Vespa tours 17 years ago, according to the news source.
We live in the heart of Italy and we know our land to the smallest detail: the small back roads, the charming country inns, the delicious Trattoria, the hidden frescoes inside a lost-to-the-world church, said Galli to the news source.
Italy is our backyard and we love it, Galli added.
For the most authentic travel experience in Italy, it is best to travel with a small group of people.
