Know More about this tour

Fiat 500s were introduced to the Italian masses at the end of the 1950s, and quickly became the nation's favorite little car. Eye-catching and stylishly retro, the earliest Fiat 500 models remain the most sought-after vintage cars in Italy today, and you’ll experience their nostalgic glory on your 5-hour tour.
After meeting your expert guide at a private garage in Florence, you’ll be introduced to your meticulously restored 1960s Fiat 500 and given a comprehensive safety briefing. You will have a practice session to get used to the car’s manual gears. If you’re the nominated driver in your group, you must be confident using them.
Leave Florence behind and head to the hills in a convoy following your guide. As you drive along secluded roads with little traffic, your guide will keep you entertained with fascinating facts about the region and its world-famous wines.
After two hours of leisurely driving through Tuscan and Chianti landscape, you’ll arrive at your destination -- a beautiful 15th-century Renaissance villa and wine estate, tucked into the hills. With roughly two hours to spend here, enjoy the activities before returning to Florence. See the Itinerary section for tour option details.

  • 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.

  • Amazing experience, it was loads of fun driving the fiat 500, and our tour guide Ema was great! He made sure we understood all the details about how to drive the car, and was always smiling. Great wine tasting and lunch after at a charming little winery. Highly recommended!

  • If I could rate this eight stars it wouldnt do it justice....such an enjoyable day.

  • Absolutely fantastic experience. Our guide had an obvious passion for 500s and wine and made us feel at home.

  • The day was a wonderful way to finish our time in Italy
    Nicolo our guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the cars the countryside the wines and the food
    We got seperate from the group by a series of traffic issues but they found us fairly quickly
    Very enjoyable and highly recommended

  • What a fun trip this was. Our leader, Mattias, was a gem and made it wasy and fun. The little Grandmothers the fiat 500s as they were fondly called, were a hoot to drive. Very well planned route and a beautiful Villa to end at. Thoroughly recommend this tour.

  • This was one of our highlights during our trip to Italy! Such a unique and fun experience and loved getting to know the other people on our trip and exploring the Tuscan countryside in style :D

  • We had such a great time and will definitely recommend to friends and family!

  • The most amazing tour! Driving through the Tuscan hills in bright, tiny, colourful and aptly named vintage fiat 500s was definitely a highlight of our trip! Finishing up with a tour of a winery with some amazing wine (and food!)

    Downside - if there is 2 of you, only one can drive, no swapsies.
