Know More about this tour

Ever popular, modern Fiat 500s are frequent sights on Florence's streets, but the vintage models are harder to find. Luckily for you, you will drive one of these rare classics -- a lovingly restored 1960s model -- on your Fiat 500 tour of Tuscany!

After meeting your guide, walk to the garage where you will find your vintage car ready and waiting. Listen to a safety briefing before taking part in a practice session, aimed to get you familiar with the car's manual gears.

Following your attentive guide (who will be in constant radio contact throughout the tour), drive through Florence's quieter streets and out into the Tuscan hills.

First stop is the Church of San miniato al monte, perched on a hill overlooking the city. After enjoying the views, step inside the Romanesque structure, and see why many call it Italy's most beautiful church.

Driving further into Tuscany, pass through quaint villages, attracting smiles from passersby. Enjoy the attention from onlookers as you make several stops for photos, to chat with your guide or to switch drivers if you wish.

Before returning, stop for a meal on a private terrace in the hills. Dishes vary, but will always be typically Tuscan. Expect antipasti, featuring delights such as crostini with tomatoes and locally cured salami. Its a beautiful ending to your day in Tuscany!

    Alexander & Stephan were delightful, patient, & entertaining. Perfect way to spend the day. Food was ok, not great. Wine very good, setting for lunch amazing.

    Being able to see the Tuscan countryside and getting out of the city is an absolute treat. It was gorgeous. I would highly recommend bringing driving gloves as the steering wheel is not wrapped in leather.

    We both loved the Fiat 500 tour. After visiting Rome and experiencing three walking guided tours that ranged from great to good we wanted more than a wandering lecture and story telling. Alessandro and Stefano were brilliant hosts good natured, great communicators and very knowledgeable about the Tuscan hills just outside of Florence. There is nothing better than driving those tiny fiat 500s through the narrow, winding hilly Tuscan hills. It's the perfect way to explore the region. It was such fun both my wife and I were grinning and laughing the whole time. Just a warning these are manual cars but Alessandro spent some time assessing everyone's skills at driving and helping some Americans learn 'stick shift'. Can't recommend this enough.

    This was so much fun driving an old Fiat. We stopped at beautiful views on the country side of Florence. The tour guide was funny and knowable about the area. The lunch stop was beautiful scenery and the food was delicious.

    This is one of the most enjoyable tours have done. Totally worth is and so much fun, the Fiat 500s are tiny and always put smile on face. Guides were great, food at lunch was delicious. If ever get back to Florence would do this tour again

    It was an amazing experience to drive through Tuscany in a classic fiat. The tour guide were very knowledgeable of the area and made us feel like family.

    This tour was just so fun, start-to-finish. We met great people, the guide was friendly, knowledgeable and had a sense of humor. There was really nothing to improve, it was a fabulous tour! (And I started out as a semi-reluctant passenger!)
