Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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 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.

Enjoyable experience. Car we used was in “okay” condition. You’ll be given a chance to practice driving it before going to the main road. There’s a mini winery tour then light lunch with wine tasting. We sampled 3 wines and they were delicious! David was outstanding. Definitely recommending this experience.

I cannot recommend this enough!! We lucked out and were the only ones on the tour, (yay off season travelling) and it was perfect. The guide Mattia was punctual, personable, and informative. Driving the fiat is a bit tricky, so I wouldn't recommend this if you aren't super comfortable with driving manual. The views and the wine tasting at the villa were awesome, it's definitely a good way to experience something different than typical tourist activities. Do it while you can!

Backroads of Tuscany in classic Fiat 500 cars.

This tour was the highlight of our visit to Italy - it was fantastic. Mattia our guide was personable, funny and informative. He knew just where to go to get great scenic views in a relaxing way that gave us great exposure to Tuscany. The tour itself made us feel like we were part of the Tuscan community, driving through small towns and roads, etc. The pace of the tour was relaxing, with a couple of stops to allow us to get out, appreciate the surroundings, get some pictures and take in the surroundings. The wine tasting at the end of the tour at the villa was also excellent and exposed us to some incredible Chianti, Super Tuscan and White wines from the region. These Fiat 500 cars are standard transmission, so if you are not able to drive a standard and manipulate the clutch, this tour is not for you. Otherwise - this is a don't miss and we will take the tour again next time we are in Florence.

Highly recommend this tour! It was pouring down rain the day we went but we ended up having the best time. Just make sure one of you is a confident driver of *older* manual cars and you will be good!

There is no way to properly describe the experience of driving through the Tuscan country in an original Fiat 500, so if you know how to drive stick (or are with someone who can) then you have no excuse not to take this tour. The tour guide, Mattia is amazing, informative, funny, and charismatic. He provided great knowledge of the area in an engaging way, and allowed for plenty of time to take pictures with the adorable little cars. We drove Paula, the red one and had a blast. The tour ends at a beautiful estate winery with very high quality wine, cheese, meats, and bruschetta. Mattia even showed us the proper way to put olive oil on bruschetta, so if you want to find that out then I guess you have to take the tour!

My wife and I took this tour because it was tailor made for us! She loves wine and I love old cars! Our guide Mateo, and his brother are great fun and very personable. The tour thru the Tuscan countryside was grand to say the least! And our winery stop , though not the one in the literature ( the winery was hosting a wedding on that day unbeknownst to us) was a quaint and very charming small working vineyard nestled in amongst some of the most breathtaking views we have ever witnessed. The lunch and wine tasting were very good as well! We felt as if we were invited into their home for lunch! We highly recommend this tour, though I warn you . You must enjoy the challenge of driving an OLD CAR with a clutch ! Adventurous drivers and co pilots apply here !
