What You Can Expect

Self-Drive Vintage Fiat 500 Tour from Florence: Tuscan Hills and Italian Cuisine

Self-Drive Vintage Fiat 500 Tour from Florence: Tuscan Hills and Italian Cuisine

Fiat 500s sprung onto the Italian motoring scene in the late 1950s as a stylish yet affordable vehicle. Ever popular, modern Fiat 500s are frequent sights on Florence’s streets, but the vintage models are harder to find. Luckily for you, you'll drive one of these rare classics -- a lovingly restored 1960s model -- on your Fiat 500 tour of Tuscany!

After meeting your guide, walk to the garage where you'll find your vintage car ready and waiting. Listen to a safety briefing before taking part in a practice session, aimed to get you familiar with the car’s manual gears.

Fiat 500s are small compared to most of today’s cars, so with comfort in mind, bookings are only accepted for a maximum of three adults, or two adults and two children, per car. Should your group be larger, no worries – up to 15 people can book, and each group will be divided into separate cars, traveling together in a colorful convoy.

Following your attentive guide (who will be in constant radio contact throughout the tour), drive through Florence’s quieter streets and out into the Tuscan hills. First stop is the Church of San Miniato al Monte, perched on a hill overlooking the city. After enjoying the views, step inside the Romanesque structure, and see why many call it Italy’s most beautiful church.

Driving further into Tuscany, pass through quaint villages, attracting smiles from passersby. Enjoy the attention from onlookers as you make several stops for photos, to chat with your guide or to switch drivers if you wish. Before returning, stop for a meal on a private terrace in the hills. Dishes vary, but will always be typically Tuscan. Expect antipasti, featuring delights such as crostini with tomatoes and locally cured salami. It’s a beautiful ending to your day in Tuscany!

This Tour was one of the highlights of our two week vacation. The guys at the tour companyare friendly, organized, fun and definitely people oriented. Our guide Julian couldn't have been better.
The car was a blast to drive. The scenery was breathtaking. The lunch was out of this world. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who really wants a great day out.
We actually booked another tour with this same company and it was equally as good !!

Great tour, my wife and I loved it! We drove the Fiat, but there are Vespas too. I recommend the morning tour, the streets are less chaotic. But know how to drive a stick and be prepared for some intense driving, but it's totally manageable. Angel was a great tour guide. Really cool experience!

Had a fantastic time :) was great to get outside of the city.

The four of us in our group dubbed this the most fun we had during a month in Italy. And it was a really good trip with a lot of adventures. The little Fiats were fun, the countryside views were amazing, and the lunch overlooking the hills of Tuscany was really tasty. Julian, our guide, was patient and accommodating. It is important that you know how to drive a stick shift before you go, but our designated driver said it wasnt difficult to manage if you did. I would definitely recommend this for those looking for something different. Fair warning: the cars are very cozy so you may want to break groups into no more than two people per car.

This tour was amazing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

So much fun to drive this little bit of history around Florence - can't wait to do it again next visit. I booked for a solo and had the little blue car to myself. The lunch was quite filing and varied which was nice and gave an opportunity to talk with those on the vespas behind the cars. The tour combines the cars and vespas and unfortunately it was raining in the morning which was disappointing as we had only one photo stop. I would have liked to stop more for photos even in rain but we had a few very slow vespas which affected our schedule.
