The Vespa Way

Jokingly, we had discussed riding Vespa's in Italy. Little did we know we were actually going to do it. We downloaded the Viator app. This app helps you find tours/activities to do while traveling. The Vespa tour was of course on there! I demanded we do it! I didn't think riding a Vespa would be difficult and thought they were adorable. Boy, was I surprised by how difficult it was! However, out of everything we were able to do in Italy this was my FAVORITE!!

Our Vespa's for the day.

Before actually riding the Vespa, we were required to pass a little test. They showed us how to ride one and then we were required to ride one around a set of cones. At first, I was like no big deal. Then we started watching others try them out in front of us. Everyone was failing. We didn't know that if you failed you would ride in one of the cars instead. Sebastian was up first. He was questionable they requested he try again after everyone was done. I however, passed. Sebastian luckily was passed at the end! Thank goodness.

Our first ride was only 5 minutes. To a nearby winery. Our adrenaline was racing! I was smiling from ear to ear once we got off the Vespa.

So was Sebastian!

The views were stunning! We didn't just go down dirt paths, we were on the road. Cars were passing us frequently. It was a little crazy but absolutely amazing!!!!!

Our second trip was to a winery 45 min away!

Sebastian almost wiped out right before this.

After a long drive back we were given a delightful lunch and wine tasting. Definitely worth it. It was so much fun getting to bond with all the others who did the tour with us. We weren't just strangers anymore we were strangers who experienced their first Vespa tour together! Needless to say, Sebastian never wants to ride a Vespa again! If you have the option of doing a Vespa tour I completely recommend it!!
