For decades the Ape has captured the collective imagination of Italians while remaining the first choice for a practical work vehicle. The Ape debuted in 1948 with the goal of providing a reliable means of transportation for companies and working individuals who could not afford a four-wheel vehicle. Corradino D’Ascanio derived his design from the original Piaggio Vespa scooter, but added a second wheel to the rear axle making it possible to include a flatbed that could carry anything from construction materials to bottles of milk.
For 65 years the Ape has been a fixture of daily Italian life transporting everything from wood during post-war construction to pizza and passengers during the economic boom. Although the Ape classic that is currently available includes a number of technical innovations, the basic design and silhouette of this unique three-wheeled vehicle remains unchanged.
In this one hour tour, you will explore the historic center of Brindisi crossing the boulevard (with a panoramic stop in the Roman Columns area) and the old historic center (with a stop and visit at the San Giovannin Temple at the Sepulcher and the Archaeological Excavations of San Pietro degli Schiavoni). To guarantee you’ll have a real Puglia experience, a delicious tasting of an Apulian wine and food product will be offered to all guests.
Can your stay in Puglia become any more Italian than driving around in a ape?
