Overview

See Italy from behind the wheel of a retro Fiat 500 on this 4-hour tour through Tuscany. Take a spin around the countryside, enjoying panoramic views of Florence and a stop at the Church of San Miniato al Monte. Your guide will lead the way to a private terrace, where you’ll enjoy a delicious Tuscan lunch before cruising back to your original departure point in Florence.
  • 4-hour Tuscany tour from Florence by vintage Fiat 500
  • Follow your expert guide and drive into the Tuscan hills
  • Visit the Church of San Miniato al Monte, and enjoy the views over Florence
  • Stop for photo opportunities and to change drivers if you wish
  • Enjoy a meal in Tuscany before returning to Florence
  • Small-group tour with a maximum of 15 people in five cars ensures personalized attention from your guide
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.

Stefano was our tour guide and we had several Vespas and 3 Fiats not including Stefano leading the charge. By the time we got to the first scenic outlook, we were reduced to 2 Fiats me driving by myself and a couple behind in from Boston. Unfortunately one car had to consolidate into the guide car due to issues driving manual/standard. These are cars from the 60s and 70s, you need to know how to use a clutch.
The cars are so well maintained and the clutch was like butter.
I had a grin on my face the entire time as we blatted around Florence and the country side. I was waving like I was royalty at pedestrians and tourists alike.
I found the drive and streets chosen to be relatively simple I do live and drive in LA and our guide Stefano was very good about making choices so the whole group could make it OR he may have blocked traffic for one of our turns so we could all make it together. There are walkies to keep you in touch should you get lost no one got lost.
I had an absolute ball driving around and taking photos I drive the newer Fiat 500s!. Lunch was delicious. There was another group making pasta so we spied on them for a little while. All in all it was a wonderful way to round up my stay in Florence and definitely the highlight of my trip.
If you like driving around a foreign country, like vintage Fiats and want a nice rustic lunch with a beautiful view, this 4ish hour tour is perfect for you!

This was one of the best highlights of our trip. It was so much fun! The tour guide Alessandro was awesome and we got to see so much in four hours. Before our meal, we stopped just outside of the city where we overlooked the entire city of Florence amazing views!. We then stopped at a vineyard and ended our tour with an amazing tuscan meal. The Fiat was so much fun to ride in and highly recommend this tour to anyone. You will have an unforgettable experience. A true Italian experience.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Florence!! Let's be honest, I booked this for the picture opportunity but we had a great time! First, the directions to get to the garage were very easy to follow. This wouldn't seem like a big deal, but after a horrible interaction with another tour group you realize explicit directions really help! My husband was driving and getting out of the city was a bit hectic, as you can expect, but once we were out in the country side he had a great time! We had so much fun driving and we loved it when others would take pictures of our fleet of Fiats as we drove past! As old cars are wont to do, the car had some issues getting started but nothing that our tour guide Alan couldn't handle. The stop for food at the companies villa was lovely. The food was nothing special but the view was spectacular! We would highly recommend this tour!

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.
