Should I rent a moped in Italy? | Print |  E-mail

Embedded in Italian culture in an iconic way is the Vespa, an Italian brand of moped (scooter) invented by Enrico Piaggio in Florence.

"A completely Italian product, such as we have not seen since the Roman chariot" The Times (1946)


an Italian vespa on the streets of ItalyAs Italy was coming out of the second world war, Piaggio envisioned a modern and economical form of transportation for the masses, and the rest is history, so they say.

 

Today the moped is a major means of transportation for many Italians. And it has been that way for many years.

What about for the tourist? Is it a practical means of transportation to get around and see the sights on your Italian vacation?

Does it make sense to rent a moped in Italy?

I've rented Vespas many times in Italy. In fact, I've taken video from the back of a Vespa in several of the Italian towns I've visited. So if you want to see what it looks like to ride a Vespa in Italy, just go here: italy.culturaltravel.net
