Nice (Cote d'azur) scooter / vespa rental

Hello! My fiancÚ and I will be travelling to Nice and Paris for our honeymoon this October. We will be flying into the Nice Airport (NCE) the morning of Wednesday, Oct 23 and leaving Nice the morning of the 27th.

One of her dreams that I want to make a reality is to tour around the French Riviera on a vespa for a day. Does anyone know of any rental companies for vespa's or scooters that we should look into? It would help if it was based in Nice. We are open to do it any of the days that we are there. (Oct 24-26).

After researching, turns out that "vespa" is a specific brand made in Italy. I believe that there are companies that have vespas specifically, but am not dead set on riding the exact brand from Italy. More looking for a cool scooter to travel around the area for a day.

Bear in mind that scooter accidents are not uncommon and can lead to serious injuries. Make sure you have health insurance.

And make sure that health insurance covers risky activities.
I assume you both have car licences or motorbike licences? You can only ride a scooter up to 50cc or electric equivalent unless you have a motorbike licence.
If you have your own helmets take them with you, though you can rent them, same with gloves. Wear good clothes too, should you come off road rash is very very painful.

https://riderly.com/scooter-rental-nice/ is one site, a simple search will give you lots more.

Thank you for the advice. We will not be looking for anything over 50cc.
