What better way to explore Piemonte, than on your very own Italian scooter? On this private tour, you will experience a totally unique perspective of the Langhe and Roero hills…
Just picture yourself driving through the small cobbled streets of the Langhe, away from the city and chaos, as the sun illuminates the swathes of vineyards and the heady aroma of grapes lingers in the air…
For this tour we use the Vespa LX-125 (a.k.a. ‘the vespino’). A light and agile model, offering the classic vespa look, and it can be driven with a normal driver’s license. We also offer similar tours for motor-cyclists (but these tours do require a full motorbike license). This is an itinerary which celebrates the journey just as much as the destination. We especially love this trip for a boys (or girls!) weekend away!
Total km: 400
Day 1 - Wine first
Today you will arrive at your cute B&B which is located within 20km of Alba. After you’ve settled in, the fun begins! You will be taken in a minibus on a wine-tasting afternoon at Neive Castle. So you can sample the variations of different wines, without worrying about who is going to be appointed designated driver! This evening return to your B&B for some rest ahead of an exhilarating day tomorrow. You may wish to go into Alba for a bite to eat.Accommodation
Day 2 - Vroom Vroom!
After an Italian breakfast this morning, you’ll find your vespa (with a full tank) at your hotel – ready to take you on a real adventure! The landscape of the Monferrato is a succession of rolling hills, neat vineyards, villages and castles, with the mountains in the background.
There is no better way to explore such an enchanting territory than to hop on a Vespa and get off-the-beaten-track, away from any traffic, as you travel serenely through the wild and beautiful countryside. You’ll be accompanied by an expert guide who knows all of the best routes. You’ll end your day sharing stories over a glass of local wine. Bliss.Accommodation
Day 3 - Slow food, fast travel
Today you will be exploring the Langhe region on your Vespa. An opportunity to experience total freedom as you whizz through the Unesco-heritage hills, avoiding the main roads and crowed areas. You’ll discover a world where the people and the food live life in the slow lane, but thanks to your zippy little scooter – you can absorb as much of the area as possible in a short time. As well as the charming medieval villages, endless vineyards and panormic vistas, you will also have the chance to stop and sample some local delicacies along the way. After a full and exciting day, your comfortable home-away-from-home awaits you, where you can enjoy a traditional tasting menu.Accommodation
Day 4 - Home time
Sadly it’s time to head home, but you’ll be returning with plenty of stories to tell, sure to turn your friends green with envy. And the great thing about this kind of holiday is that there are so many more routes and areas of Piedmont begging to be explored. So, the sooner you return, the sooner you can start planning your next Italian Vespa tour!
