Vespa tour of Naples, Italy

Vespa tour of Naples, Italy

As I stepped out of my hotel I was feeling panicky. I was in Naples, the eldest was alone upstairs in our room, and I was setting off with an Italian man I’d never met for a tour of a city with a chaotic reputation. What’s more, the tour was by Vespa, and I still have the scars from the last time I was on one of those, twenty years ago. Frankly, I didn’t know what to worry about most.

The tour had sounded like a great idea when I’d booked it. Emiliano Tufano is an archaeologist and tour guide and offers Vespa tours of the area. We had a free morning in Naples on an Adventure Company family trip and when I called Emiliano he said he’d be happy to show us around. He said he’d come with another guide and two Vespas so that the eldest and I could both go on the tour.

But, the day before the Vespa tour the eldest decided she’d prefer not to come.
