When I think of a Vespa, my mind immediately flies to Audrey Hepburn) and Gregory Peck in the film Roman Holiday and my heart screams "I also want to visit Val d'Orcia on a rented Vespa!"
Born from an idea by Enrico Piaggio, the Vespa has always been a symbol of Italy around the world. From the epic traverses of the 1950s and 1960s to demonstrate its reliability, to simple everyday use for work or leisure, this small means of transport is the trusted companion of a thousand adventures. Countless models produced over the years, some of which are now real museum pieces, exactly like that of Pontedera, birthplace of the Vespa.
We can offer you this experience of reliving the set of emotions that this two wheeled icon can provide.
Patented at the end of the Second World War, when the Pontedera factories had been transferred to Piedmont, the Vespa was designed by the aeronautical engineer Corradino D'Ascanio who "detested motorcycles", but who knew how to create an original model, inspired by the complexity of aeronautical starter engines, combined with the practicality of a motorcycle that did not need to be "climbed over" to sit on, but that could give the impression and the security of being comfortably seated on the sofa at home.
The models in our possession are totally restored Lambrettas or vintage Vespa or the most modern and certainly more comfortable automatic, available in a vintage blue version, for those who want to live this carefree experience.
Abandoning everyday life and riding a Vespa or Lambretta will allow you to travel through our hills, enjoying the views, smells and flavors of the Val d'Orcia in every season: the fresh air on your face and the intense green of the fields in winter, the scents and colors of the freshly blossomed spring, the beauty of the wheat and the scent of the freshly cut grass, the charm of the autumn colors in the thousand red, green, brown and yellow leaves ... emotions that you could never experience inside a modern vehicles!
