Traveling by motorbike in Tuscany is a source of such strong and varied sensations that it is difficult to account for them to the uninitiated.

Over the triumph of natural beauty lies a network of winding roads, a true pleasure for the motorcyclist who loves to ride his two-wheeler. The classic recipe from alpine altitudes, smooth sliding at the bottom of the valley followed by a whirlwind of hairpin bends at high altitude, is reinvented here with a design that makes variety its strong point, between ups and downs from the hills or up and down the Appenines.

Just a few names: the Cisa pass, the Radici pass, the Abetone pass, the Futa and Raticosa passes, the Giogo pass, the Muraglione pass, the Consuma pass. It is here that the history of national motoring has been made, from the Coppa della Consuma, to time trials such as the legendary Sillano-Spedaletto, to the historic routes of Circuito delle Tre Province, Mugello Stradale and Mille Miglia. Mugello is also famous for the Italian Motorcycle Grand Prix, usually held in June at the Scarperia Autodrome, one of the most sustainable circuits in the world.

Tuscany was the birthplace of one of the most famous Italian industrial design products in the world: the Vespa. In fact, Pontedera is home to the Piaggio Group, holder of the Aprilia, Moto Guzzi and, of course, Vespa brands, the undisputed synonym of elegance and lifestyle.

That's why motorcycles and Tuscany have always been a happy marriage, whether for a short daily ride over a mountain pass or a long, go-go vacation among cities of art, historic villages and maybe even relaxing spas.
