What You Can Expect

Self-Drive Vintage Fiat 500 Tour from Florence: Tuscan Wine Experience

Picking grapes in Tuscany

The Fiat 500 swiftly became Italy’s favorite little car when it was first introduced near the end of the 1950s. Its retro-chic look has made early models the most desired vintage cars today in Italy, and you’ll have the chance to hit the road with one yourself.

Make your way to a private garage in Florence, where you’ll find your restored 1960s Fiat 500. Your guide will give you a safety overview and the opportunity to practice with the manual gears. The selected driver for each group must feel confident behind the wheel before you set out.

Then, you’re off! Travel with your convoy into the Tuscan hills as your guide leads the way. Hear insightful commentary about the history of the wine region as you drive along the secluded country roads.

After a scenic, 2-hour drive through the Chianti region, you’ll pull into the villa and wine estate, dating back to the 15th century. See the Itinerary section for details on the two activities to choose from before making the journey back to Florence.

This was my favorite tour of our entire trip! Matthias was a fantastic guide and was very funny and friendly. I felt like we had made a great friend by the time it was over. While driving the cars was so fun, the highlight was the lunch and wine tasting in the wine cellar. I love that we were able to get off the beaten path and see a side of Tuscany that is truly a hidden gem. We got to learn about the culture in a way you just don't get from tourist traps. I look forward to coming back to Tuscany and hopefully booking my stay at the vineyard. The wine was incredible and I can't wait to relive this trip with the wine I purchased as a souvenir. Highly recommend!

This was super fun and a total recommend. I signed up for the Fiat driving though after doing a test run I wasn't 100 in my ability to drive a stick and honestly, enjoy wine tasting!. Since I was the only one that day I went with the guide and had a great time. Learned new things about the chianti region and went to the cutest little local market for food and wine. They were totally accommodating to my diet restrictions can't have gluten, ugh, and it was delicious. I have several friends that have also done this and loved - it's a must!

Mattia was our guide and he was the absolute best! This excursion was the highlight of our 2-week Italy trip because of him. He was very thorough in communicating driving instructions for Fernando, and he was so nice! Extremely friendly, funny, patient and kind. We felt like we made a true friend that day. Thank you Mattia for making our first Italy trip so memorable! We can't wait to return and do this again in the summertime!

We own a modern Fiat 500 so when we saw this tour we had to do it!
Our tour guide, Mattia, was the best and well versed in the Tuscany area, vineyards, and most important the Fiats!
Make sure you know how to drive a stick-shift as well as do e-brake hill starts as you'll have a hard time otherwise. Mattia was great, he showed us around the car and within minutes we were off through the countryside. We had some picturesque moments before our visit to a village for some wine and food pairings.
This was our favorite event in Florence and we're on the search for a classic Fiat of our own now

I haven't driven a true stick shift since I was a kid but had a blast on this tour. Fiats are classics and super fun to drive. The tour was a highlight for sure of our 2 weeks in Florence.

My husband and I happened to be the only guests booked on our day, so we got to ride with our guide, Mat. He was incredibly knowledgeable when it came to both the vintage vehicle and the specifics of the wine regions we were visiting. Great food, wine, scenery, and company! A highlight of our trip!

The best way to explore the surrounding hills of Florence! We had an amazing group that learned how to drive the cars quick and kept the whole experience fun and friendly. I had a blast driving the old vintage Fiat, named Bella, while my wife enjoyed taking in the sights and taking photos. The tour guide had tons of knowledge about the cars and the areas we visited. And the wine cellar where we had our wine tasting and lunch was great. We had fun getting to know everyone and swapping stories of our time so far in Italy. One of the best parts of our trip and a true highlight of our experience in Italy.

We found this tour online, and read all of the reviews and said why not?. Well, what an absolute blast! If you want to have fun, do this tour. If you're looking for engagement from the owners/runners of the tour, do this tour. If you want some great wine at the end, do this tour. It was just so much fun, and Niko sp? and Ema sp? made it great. Driving the cars was a blast although you're not going anywhere fast and you do drive very windy and pretty hilly roads. But it does take you back, especially if you miss driving a manual.

The winery itself was very cool. You don't tour a winery in the pure sense, but the history and the why are discussed plenty.

Could not say enough about how much fun we had, and what a great day it was. I know in Italy that tipping isn't a thing, and when I gave them money, it was an argument, but I felt that they went above and beyond anything I could have imagined, and I wanted to show them that appreciation.
