Visiting the city on an Ape calessino

What is an Ape Calessino?

The Ape Calessino is an iconic vehicle made by Piaggio, an Italian company famous for the production of light vehicles and scooters. It is a three-wheeled motorbike model that originated in the 1950s, and which is characterised by curved lines and a retro styling, inspired by the classic cars of that time. Originally, this vehicle was used to transport people and small goods, but over the years it has become particularly popular as a touristic vehicle both in Italy and all over the world.

Ideal for visiting the city

Many Italian seaside towns and touristic locations, in fact, use the ape Calessino, which is also called Tuk Tuk, as a means of transport for guided visits or sightseeing tours, due to its picturesque appearance, the fact that it can be manoeuvred in tight spaces with ease, and its ability to attract the attention of tourists due to its particular design.

The vehicle has been updated over the years with more modern versions and technological improvements, but its vintage look and retro aesthetics have remained unchanged, thus maintaining its appeal among vintage vehicle enthusiasts and those who are nostalgic for a classic design.
