STOP PRESS:

Originally, we were to travel to Aprilia's factory at Noale, just outside Venice. However, our friends at Aprilia/Piaggio have asked us now to go to Pontedera, where they have their new Head Office and Piaggio Museum. Of course, this is a little bit further, as Pontedera lies between Florence and Pisa. The above route should take us hopefully to Pontedera.
