Scooter/Vespa rental

Hello! I’m looking to rent a Scooter/Vespa and drive it from northern Italy (likely Milan or Venice) down through Florence and drop it off in Rome. It would be a one-way rental. Do you know any businesses that can supply this? Most conventional car rental places don’t have a Scooter option. Thanks!!

You'll need an international drivers permit and I hope you have read e.g. https:/… - and that you realise that you can't take a scooter below 150cc (most rentals are 125 cc) on the autostrada !

So rental places for long-distance use are generally for MOTORBIKES rather than scooters (motorini): http://www.aimto.it/en/motorbike-rental.html

However, see http://www.hpmotorrad.rentals/en/20-vespa - clicking on "rental stores" gives you addresses in Milan (Segrate) and Venice, among other places.

Note that scooter theft is rampant, which is one reason why you'll have to pay something like €10/day for insurance.
