It has been defining the region’s borders, history, culture, and prosperity since its humble beginnings.
And what is a Vespa? What is all the fuss about?
Vespa scooter is an ambassador of Italian style worldwide. Seeing the post-WWII destruction, Enrico Piaggio (Italian businessman), recognized the need for a new mode of transport. He commissioned the skillful Corradino D’Ascanio to create a motorcycle suited to get around the bomb-damaged cities.
Although Vespa scooter is very stylish, the choices driving its design were mainly practical. For instance, he moved the gear lever onto the handlebar for easier access, positioned the seat to be both safe and comfortable, and hid all the working parts behind panels (to keep the rider’s clothes in immaculate condition). The company released the first prototype in 1946. Piaggio named it “Vespa” meaning “wasp” because of its narrow waist and buzzing sound it made.
There is so much to see, smell, taste, and learn! Go on an exploratory adventure on a vintage Vespa; you won’t regret it. Book the Tuscany Vespa Tours today!
