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.

Very glad we made the decision to walk up the gorge. Stunning scenery & legs definitely feel like I’ve used them but we went at quite a pace. Cool in the gorge with the cold water being a refreshing change to the hot temperature out of the shaded valley. Fine in shorts & t-shirt but absolutely need trainers or shoes with good grip as slippery rocks to be climbed on. Water came half way up thighs as I’m only 5ft so be prepared to get wet shorts! Several stages to the walk & you can turn back at any point. It was free to enter but had to leave ID as deposit (driving license was sufficient) with desk where we borrowed helmets.

Not much to add to the other reviews. Except a pro tip: wear watershoes. Most types that fully enclose the foot will be just fine. And better than having heavy soaked hiking boots or even sneakers.

Our trip to Tuscany coincided with July's European heatwave. Our day out at Orrido di Botri provided a welcome respite from the heat, and a degree of much needed physical activity. This is a beautiful place. The gorge is much deeper than we had anticipated with rocks towering high above, creating a cool, quiet haven. There was no entry charge when we visited (helmets provided free of charge). We went in the morning and there were very few other visitors. The walk itself starts off fairly easily and becomes increasingly demanding as you progress. It is possible to turn back at any point but the journey to the top pool is perfectly manageable by anybody of average fitness and agility. Often the simplest route is through the water (above knee height) so dress accordingly. Trainers suffice. Our teenagers romped up and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. N.B. take the advice of other reviewers and take the SP56 route

Fantastic walk, 9yr old managed the entire walk with some tricky roped parts towards the end, it’s beautiful and perfect for a day out. Words of warning though , the sat Nav had two roads leading to it but one is terrible and will likely damage your car , no tarmac. Also the small restaurant at the entrance looks appealing but the food was nothing like what was advertised on the menu at the road entrance so would avoid that.

Trek in an aquamarine stream enclosed within emerald green alpine canyon walls. Our whole family (including primary-school aged children) loved this stunning water hike.. The full hike takes about 1.5-2 hours each way, and gets progressively more difficult, although most people should be able to do it as long as you are wearing sturdy shoes with good traction that you can immerse fully in the bracing cold water. A more extreme trail is available at the end of the standard trail by prior arrangement. Unlike many sites in Italy, this is very reasonably priced (mandatory helmet rental + admission = 2 Euros each, and the Monday we went, it was free). We were told that it gets very crowded if you do not go early in the morning, but we went on a Monday at 11:00 in July and found it was not very crowded at all. Perhaps this precaution applies to Sundays/August. Clean bathrooms and nice picnic grounds at the entrance/exit, and a full restaurant as well. One word of caution: Have at least one excellent and experienced driver in your party, as all roads to get here are riddled with hairpin turns and steep drop-offs. The road from Montefegatesi is, in addition, very poorly paved; SP-56 is a better road.
