What You Can Expect

Self-Drive Vintage Fiat 500 Tour from Florence: Tuscan Villa and Picnic Lunch

Enjoy your drive around Tuscany!

Meet your expert guide on the outskirts of Florence, and get a safety briefing and introduction to the famous vintage Fiat 500s.

These ultra-cool 4-seaters are a relatively rare sight on Italy’s roads, so this self-drive tour offers an exciting opportunity to get behind the wheel of one of these iconic vehicles. Get driving instructions and take a practice session. The Fiats have manual gears so if you’re the nominated driver, you’ll need to be confident using them.

Once you’re ready, set off in convoy behind your guide into Tuscany’s beautiful countryside.

Trace the peaceful roads across the undulating landscapes, passing leafy vineyards, velvety fields and cypress groves. Make regular photo stops and after roughly two hours, pull up at an elegant country villa.

Leave your Fiat and relax in the gorgeous surroundings. Stroll through the exquisite gardens and feel free to take a swim or laze beside the outdoor swimming pool.

Then, dig into a gourmet picnic lunch by the pool. Dishes vary but expect local favorites such as bruschetta (tomato and basil on toasted bread), cheese, cold meats and pastas. Accompany your food with tastings of wines made at the villa.

After around 2.5 hours at the villa, hop into your Fiat again and end your tour back in Florence.

This tour was the MOST fun we had for 2 weeks in Italy. Nicolo and David are great guides. They are patient and make sure that you understand how to correctly drive the cars. Nicolo would run interference on the road to ensure we could stay together and work well in daily traffic. Speaking of daily traffic: The other drivers were respectful on the road to these cute vintage cars. They exemplify Italian pride. If you can drive stick - you can drive these cute little cars. The countryside is beautiful and it is great to get out of the city! We had the picnic afterwards. David was great company, the food was delicious, the olive oil and wine, both made at the villa, were so good!! Do this great tour, you won't regret it.

This was a fantastic day!! My favorite thing we did in all of Italy. David our guide was fun, easy to understand and very personable. The lunch was wonderful and we soooo enjoyed the wine. Purchased wine and they shipped it home for us. Arrived in perfect condition. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see the Tuscan countryside.

We had the best time on this tour with our amazing guide Nicolo!!! It was just me, my boyfriend, and Nicolo. We really became friends with him we couldn't have asked for better guide!! The tour was amazing, we rode around Tuscany and he offered to take pictures of us wherever we stopped. The villa was GORGEOUS but it was raining so we couldn't swim. Just when we though it couldn't get better, the wine tasting just as great! The wine was incredible and all made at the villa. There was also incredible food. This was the best tour we have ever been on and we plan on coming back!

This was a great although there was a wedding booked in at the villa, so rather than sitting by and enjoying the pool we were put into the wine cellar which was actually quite nice and cool in comparison to outside however, not what we were expecting. And although Viator will let you book the wine making session, it is not available until August at the earliest so we were disappointed we weren't able to do this. However this wasn't the fault of the company that ran the tour, rather that of Viator

The service the company ran I could not recommend enough! The starting location is very easy to find, taking about 30 mins on the bus from central Florence and very simple to find and navigate. We were given a quick run down on the cars and the dreaded double clutch it's simple once there's been a demonstration given and a quick test drive in the private grounds and then we were off! At a good pace and following as a convoy it was a truly unique experience! Although our little Topsy broke down half way through these are classic vintage cars don't forget we were able to swap and drive a different car so we didn't lose out on the experience. Then the food afterwards was great too with the opportunity to buy some of the wine made there at the villa, all in all a very unique experience.

This trip was fantastic. Very well organised, the cars were in fantastic condition and the views driving around Tuscany were exceptional. The lunch was very nice, lots of local fresh produce and plenty of wine to wash it down! We had a good chat and laugh with the other people on the tour.
The double clutch took a bit of getting used too but after that it felt really special to be driving around Tuscany in a piece of history. Especially with the excellent music playing to accompany us!
