The Vespa Museum Space was established in 2013 as an outlet for the passion of Vespa aficionado Claudio Sarra, founder of Bici & Baci, a chain of bike and scooter rental outlets.

Once you've made your way down a few steps, you'll find yourself all of a sudden immersed in the past, standing in front of legendary Vespa models, well-known to the general public thanks, at least in part, to the films in which they are heavily featured – first and foremost, Roman Holiday, which reached its 60th anniversary in 2013.

The permanent exhibition of original models that have gone down in the history of two-wheeled transport the world over is an attempt to conserve and highlight the heritage of Italy's motoring past, and also to chart changing social mores over the decades.

Entry to the Vespa Museum Space is free.
