I had always wanted to tick off one thing from my bucket list and that was ride a Vespa in the city of Naples. NapolinVespa Tour made this happen and they pulled it off effortlessly. Vincenzo was my guide and what can I say? He made it very personable! We soaked in the city discussing culture, history and how these aspects shaped the city... I recommend you take this excursion if you are serious and willing to learn! The Vespa itself was beautiful and I managed to get the typical postcard picture of myself with the beautiful vista of Naples behind me.. I recommend that you don't hesitate and book this. It will be very memorable...
