I've seen many threads here about how riding a scooter through Tuscany is quite dangerous if you have not done it before, but I have a few specific questions.
First, this would not be my first time riding a scooter. I have ridden inside of Florence two or three times, ridden up to Fiesole and around there. I have also driven a scooter in places like Vietnam, Thailand, Spain, etc. So as far as driving the scooter I'm all good, quite comfortable and so on.
My question is what specifically makes renting a scooter in Tuscany a bad idea if you're comfortable on a bike? Is it the other drivers? Are the roads between towns and in the hillsides just not good for scooters? Are there a lot of dirt roads that would make it difficult to go from town to town?
Any advice would be much appreciated!
