Fiat 500 Tour was the highlight of our time in Florence. The cars have character, the winery estate was lovely, we really enjoyed our lunch and sampling the wines, and our guide was such a nice person and was able to share much about the Tuscany region including some personal stories. Would recommend this to everyone who wants to experience the Tuscan countryside. Some of my favorite pictures came from this tour including one that is now my screen saver.
Well... it was just fantastic... we had wonderful time. We slowly drove throw a region and admired a view. Vintage Fiat 500 was adorable. Our trip was ending in vineyard, were we had delicious lunch and olso we could tasted a wine and chat as well. Crazy guide, but in possitive way!
Great time! by the time we hit the picnic part of the tour we were all old friends, and it was so much fun driving that car! I highly recommend it, Nico was fun, helpful, and went out of his way to help us plan our time in Florence. Great time! We just wished we had the all day option for touring :-)
It was one of the best day since we were in florence...So much fun good food and wine..We loved it ! I can strongly recommend everyone they should take this tour for sure before they leave tuscany!
Beppe and the Fiat 500 club gave us the highlight of our honeymoon in Italy. We arrived to the club to find eight beautifully restored Fiats waiting. Beppe gave us some excellent coaching on the ins and outs of operating these fun old cars - they require extra care when shifting as other reviewers have mentioned - but the cars were surprisingly easy to operate for those with a little experience with a stick shift. The drive around the back roads of Tuscany was breathtaking. Our tour stopped at a historic terracotta kiln and a church in the hills en route to a B and B where we enjoyed some Tuscan wine and cheese. Beppe was a conscientious guide and made this pleasant experience for a diverse crowd (we had a range from recent college graduates to young adults and older world travellers on our tour). Highly recommend this to anybody visiting Florence!
David and his group were an absolute joy to spend the day with. The cars were wonderful and had a lot of personality. The entire experience was one of my highlights of being in Italy. I recommend it without hesitation.
This is a wonderful, fun tour. David was very knowledgeable about the cars and the area we drove. The music in the car was an added plus. The villa for the wine tasting was beautiful. Food and wine were fabulous.
Brilliant! Fantastic drive around the Tuscan countryside followed by great food and delicious wine in the villa cellar. Great friends made (who once the tour was over we continued to sight see with!) and a very memorable experience overall. Would definitely recommend.
Definitely the highlight of our holiday!! Adorable cars, beautiful countryside, lovely wine, really friendly and knowledgable hosts. Do it!!
This was my favorite thing we did on the trip! The countryside is beautiful! The tour guide is really nice, informative, funny, and will take lots of pictures for you! Great wine and great time!
We really enjoyed this tour.
First, it's a fairly short drive in the Tuscan countryside in a pretty quirky little car. I drive a stick, but the early 70s Fiats they have here don't have a synchro-mesh system so you have to double-clutch. It was fun learning how to do that and the drive was just the right length where you really got to experience the car before it became annoying to drive. Because honestly they're fairly uncomfortable and difficult to operate. But I really liked the experience with it provided on this tour.
After the drive you get back to the winery and have nice, light Italian lunch of cold-cuts, honey and cheeses, bread and some pate. Along with this you also get to taste a few different very tasty wines that are made at the winery there. And here is where the tour really shined, largely due to the tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about Italian food and wine and very personable as well. We really enjoyed hearing what he had to say and discussing it with him.
All in all it takes about a half-day and was one of the nicest things we did during our stay in Florence. Highly recommended!
What a wonderful day!, The roads through vine yards and stunning views are amazing. Beppe made everyone feel welcome and his attention was great. The experience of driving a little fiat 500 (The beautiful red car call Paula) was unforgetable.
The day began with a quick lesson in double declutching. After we rolled out in convoy into the country side, where the driving experience was amazing since the cars were really easy to drive, we stopped a few times to learn a little more about the area and enjoy the panorama and take photos of the views and cars.
Finally we drove back to the villa where we enjoyed local cured meats, cheeses and of course we tested some wines that are produced in the place.
In conclusion this tour is amazing and without hesitation I would recommend it to everyone!
Easily one of the highlights of our trip. Driving the fiats was a blast and the wine/lunch at the end was fantastic! Giuseppe was an excellent instructor (taught everyone how to double clutch) and a perfect guide. Highly recommend to anyone who is comfortable driving a manual transmission.
This was the best day of our entire trip to Italy! We drove Giacamo and Paola with another couple. It was so much fun to drive these little cars through the Tuscan landscape (and get out of the cities). I had a small issue with our car, but our guide, David, had no issues getting us back up and going. It was a hoot! Then came the wine making and tasting part of the day. The process was explained and we got to try and do it ourselves. The tasting was delightful. I've been on a few other wine tasting tours and they give you an ounce of wine and move you right along - time and people pressured - not sure with this tour! We got to sit and drink some wine, eat some lunch, all with the views of Tuscany and our Villa with access to the pool. I didn't feel rushed or pressured at all. Best day in Italy!!
