Alpine-Tour

Summer 2018: two classic Vespas, both more than 40 years old, travel through the alpes, courve by courve, higher and highres. For eleven times they drive up to more than 2000 Meter above sea-level. They even break their own records by reaching the Italian “Passo dello Stelvio” at 2.757 a.s.l. There is only one higher alpine pass, called “Col de l’Isèran” in France. (13 meters higher). But who knows, one day they might drive even up there…
