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 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.

Such an excellent and fun tour. Definitely a must when visiting Florence. Fabien the host was just the best and was great with our two young boys. Will do it again but next time on a Vespa:-

This was our very favorite experience of our whole 2 week trip in Spain and Italy. We cannot say enough about it. If you are not a strong driver with manual then don't do it though! Beautiful countryside even in the rains.

Best tour we took in Italy! Our guide was knowledgeable, patient, fun and his English was fantastic! The cars are authentic and fun! The views were postcard picturesque. We made many stops and were able to get a feel for the real Italy. The stop for lunch was very special. The guide was concerned and compliant with dietary requirements and restrictions. The food was the best we had in Florence. The tour size was small and personal. We followed the guide in a Fiat and 3 Vespas followed us. This was worth every dollar we spent. First rate company and employees.

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Italy and well worth booking. The tour guide, 'Angel' was very knowledgeable and made the day so interesting. We started out in Florence and travelled with other vespa drivers and ourselves in the Fiat out of Florence up to the church overlooking the city for beautiful views. From there we drove out into the Chianti hills, stopping in a vineyard and then on to a beautiful vineyard for an outdoor lunch. The food was a very authentic, rustic Italian lunch served with wine. From there we travelling back into the city stopping along the way for photo opportunities. A great day out, meeting others travellers and learning about the Italian lifestyle and history.

This tour turned out to be exceptional and I didn't even get to drive! My wife and I were offered a ride in the lead car with Fabio when I realized I had left my license at our hotel with no time to retrieve it. What a pleasure! Fabio, the caravan leader, is an exceptional tour guide. He is witty, fun, and informational all at the same time. His ability to multitask responsibly while clearly enjoying himself was evident to all of us. And our lunch in the hills at an estate above Florence was delicious and came with wonderful views amidst a beautiful garden. As well, the stop at San Miniato Al Monte was spiritually inspiring to me. I can't recommend this tour adventure highly enough. And we so appreciated the thoughtfulness of the garage manager in allowing us to just ride along.
Thank you, Thomas and Taffi Wilson

My wife and I loved this tour and highly recommended it. A few hints for those considering this tour:

It was a little confusing trying to figure out how to book the tour. In our case, my wife and I wanted a single car without another extra passenger. You do this by booking a group with 2 tickets, that is booking a single car for two occupants. They won't put a random 3rd person in the car with you. :

Also, I'm 6.2 with most of my height from the waist up and pretty broad shoulders. I fit fine. Well, I rolled the window down so my shoulder could stick out a bit, but my head wasn't sticking out of the roof! In fact, I could see fine with just a little slouch.

I would recommend wearing the narrowest shoes you have. I wore my wide sneakers in my size 12 US and found the cramped footwell not sufficient to completely work the clutch and brake at the same time. For light braking, both feet are fine. But as you depress the brake further, you'll run into the top of your clutch foot. To solve this, you need to clutch first, shift to neutral, let out the clutch, which then makes room for your other foot to be hard on the brake. Or, like I said, wear narrower shoes!

Lots of great and fun photo ops, and yes, Lunch was very yummy too!
