A day out by Vespa in the Monferrato area

From Asti curve after curve towards the hills, the vineyards, the sweet and evocative landscapes, without forgetting great cuisine

The landscape of the Monferrato is a succession of rolling hills, neat vineyards, villages and castles, with the mountains in the background.

There is no better way to explore such an enchanting territory than to get on a Vespa and set off on little beaten roads, away from any traffic, and travel calmly, with an expert guide who knows the best routes.

We will meet in Asti, a splendid art town, and then descend without haste to Fontanile, where the view sweeps north on the Alps and south on the Ligurian Apennines. We will go further east to Maranzana, the 'village of babaciu' and then climb to Calosso for a tasty lunch with a spectacular view of the hills. We will then discover Castelnuovo Calcea with the splendid La Court Art Park, where the vineyards are combined with art, before starting the journey back to Asti where we will end our day with a chat over a glass.

Total kms: about 150

Motorbikes are her thing. When she's not riding, she is dancing, country style.

Precise, strong, smiling and energetic, she's stubborn and never gives up. Expert in packing up for any trip, she's the one who offers you a spare toothbrush when you forgot yours!

Never without: dancing boots

Favourite quote: "Dance first. Think later"

For this tour we use the Vespa LX-125 (the 'vespino'). 

Light and agile, you can drive it with a normal car license and it represents the classic Vespa image of our dreams.

Now picture yourself out on small hill streets in the Langhe, away from the city and chaos, with the air flowing over you shielding you from the heat of a summer day, as the sun illuminates the green of the vineyards and grows the precious grapes.

Travel with the wind in your hair would be perhaps even more romantic, but for our own safety (and as required by the highway code) wearing a helmet is mandatory. The rental of the Vespa includes a helmet. It also included all the needed fuel for the day.

For reservations made within 30 days of departure, full payment is due upon booking. Lack of payment of the abovementioned sums on the dates established constitutes grounds for cancellation of reservations such as to determine, on the part of Giroola Srl, the right to terminate the contract.

As far as certain types of services are concerned, third party suppliers have the right to refuse the substitution of the transferee, even if effected within the time limit specified as per item (a) of the present article.

This non-acceptance shall be notified in good time by Giroola Srl to the parties involved before departure.

6) WITHDRAWAL

In the event of withdrawing from the tour package contract, the client is, in any case, liable for the payment of the tour package price. If withdrawal takes place for reasons beyond those envisaged in article 7 of the present General Terms, the client shall pay, in compliance with ex article 1373, paragraph III, Italian Civil Code, cancellation penalties as specified below:

  • 10% of the tour package price within 30 days prior to departure

  • a significant change of one or more elements of the contract which can be objectively considered as fundamental for the fruition of the tour package in its entirety and proposed by Giroola Srl.
  • after the conclusion of the contract itself but prior to departure and not accepted by the client.

In the abovementioned circumstances, the client is entitled to the following options:

  • the fruition of an alternative tour package, with no increase in price or with the restitution of the excess in price, if the second tour package costs less than the first;
  • the restitution of any sum corresponded as partial payment. Said restitution must be made within seven weekdays from receiving the request for reimbursement.

The client must communicate the decision (to accept the change or to withdraw) within two weekdays from receiving notice of the price increase or change.

Partial withdrawal of some of the travellers under the same contract and the resulting decrease in number of tour members is to be considered partial cancellation and is consequently regulated as stated in article 6.
