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 were first introduced in Italy in the 1950s and quickly won the hearts of Italians for their stylish looks and affordable prices. Nowadays, vintage models are harder to come by, but you’ll have the rare chance to ride a 1960s model on your tour.

Join up with your guide in central Florence and head to the garage where your retro car will be waiting for you. A safety overview will be provided as well as a test run with car’s manual gears to ensure you’re comfortable before hitting the road.

Then, you're off! Your guide will keep in constant radio contact ahead as you follow through the city streets and up into the hills of Tuscany. Stop to see the beautiful Romanesque design of the Church of San Miniato al Monte, noted by many as the country’s most beautiful church, and soak up the surrounding views of Florence below.

Hop back in your Fiat and journey deeper into Tuscany, pausing for photos and passing through charming hillside towns. Your guide will lead the way to a private terrace, where you and your group will enjoy a traditional Tuscan meal, complete with regional specialties such as crostini and cured salami. After your stomach and taste buds have been sated, you will drive back to your original departure point in Florence.

Itinerary

Please note: 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.

We had such a great time!!!! The tour guide was wonderfull and took us to places that the tour buses couldn't go. We had a delicious meal in a private kitchen in the Tuscany hills. Coming back into the city people loved the site of 6 vintage fiats . Many were taking pictures of us and filming the fiat caravan. We felt like we were being chased by paporazzi. The day was great from beginning to end.

My wife and I had a blast driving one of the vintage fiats through the surrounding hills of Florence! Our guide, Angel was a terrific and knowledgeable guide sharing some of Florence's rich history with us. The lunch provided was wonderful and the scenery to and from was stunning.
Definitely a highlight of our stay and we would recommend this tour to anyone.
Pick a nice day and enjoy the tiny country roads in a tiny Italian car!

Everyone should take a few hours to do this fun tour from Florence! We selected this tour because their office located in the centre of florence I think the other company meets outside the city it's only a short walk from the Uffizi Gallery. Our tour guide Fabio was fantastic! Full of energy and interesting commentary of florence and tuscany. Driving vintage Fiat 500s out of Florence and into the Tuscan hills was a wonderful experience, felt classically Italian. We made a few stops which included time for photos. A highlight was visiting their property where they prepared a delicious antipasto, pasta and Carmela's delicious cookies!
If you're after fun italian experience - just book this tour!

Wow! What fun! Our guide, Fabio, was FUN, knowledgeable, and very attentive. The lunch was much more than we expected...at a private farm overlooking a beautiful hillside. The only negative was that the Fiats had to follow Vespas, so it was pretty slow going ... But the views were so great, I don't think we would have enjoyed them so much if we had been going faster. Truly our best Florence experience, and well worth the money!

We thoroughly enjoyed our jaunt in the little green Fiat 500. Great to drive and fun too. Our al fresco lunch on a warm sunny day with a cool breeze overlooking the beautiful Tuscan hills was delightful, fully recommended. Sue and Andrew

This was one of the highlights of our trip - we had a small group - our guide Fabiano was fantastic. What blast driving this Fiat - A great way to see the outskirts of Florence. And of course, lunch was delicious at a beautiful setting overlooking the beautiful tuscan country side. This is a must DO - wish we had time to do all the tours with this company Walkabout

What a hoot! Franciesco led the way in his fiat followed by 4 Vespas and then us in the fiat. Up through the Tuscan hills with interesting and scenic stops along the way. Everyone was on a high from the get go and patience and leadership shown by Francesco was remarkable. We booked this tour at the last minute and we are so glad we did.

I absolutely loved this tour. Being able to drive the Fiat gave the tour a very different angel and made it fun too. We had Angel as our host, who was brilliant. He took us to some picturesque places so we were able to stop and take some pictures too. We were the only group so we were lucky enough to have Angel as our photographer too. We ended up driving to a private property for lunch where they had fresh pasta and tasty wine while we overlooked a breathtaking view. We then drove back to the city to conclude this experience. what an incredible one - I highly recommend it!
