Multi-Day Vespa Trip in Tuscany

Our first Vespa Trip, in 2015, was organised in Tuscany. For obvious reasons. From the moment you leave the city, you find yourself in the middle of the most beautiful landscapes Italy has to offer. In this region it would be difficult to find a boring road.<br><br>Every village and city you encounter is precious. Some of them are hidden pearls, others are known around the globe. Each day, we'll take you through a different landscape. From the stretched farmlands around Pisa, through the hills of the Chianti region and the mountainous area around Lucca to medieval cities like Siena and Florence.

Have walked and cycled across this bridge which is very unusual in its construction. There are plenty of bars and resteraunts around the area to relax and enjoy the ambience of the area.

Visited this beautiful bridge during a trip to Fornoli. Stunning views either side of the water and very well maintained. Clean, peaceful. Fornoli has some nice places for coffee ice cream etc also. Worth a visit if in area.

This bridge stands majestic in Fornoli which is part of Bagni di Lucca. The architect is Lorenzo Notolini and it was built between 1844 and 1860 it straddles over the River Lima. This is in fact a suspension bridge built in iron and stone and the architect was ordered to visit England to view similar bridges built in that way. The chain mechanism is very complex and the tension is held underground .this bridge prides itself of two triumphal arches. Sadly though it no longer carries vehicles but is mainly pedestrian. There is various folklore that surrounds this bridge and Festivals such as the 5 yearly Festone which is a kind of thanksgiving on the 1st Sunday of September in favour of the Madonna delle Grazie also the 1st Sunday in May is held the Spring Fair. There are several other events such as musical jazz events that I have attended there in the past.

Tucked away but worth finding. The bridge is now pedestrian only but beautifully constructed with lovely views of the river. Well worth a visit.
