Highlights
    What to Expect
    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. 

    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 pasta. 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.

    I booked this experience primarily for my husband during our honeymoon in Florence. Our tour guide, Mat, spoke English well and was great - very funny and knowledgeable about the cars, wine, and Tuscany. Mat was also a great photographer and got us some great pictures or

    We did and saw a lot in Florence and Fiesole but this was by far our most memorable and enjoyable activity. Our guide, Alex, was so friendly and funny, and made driving the classic Fiat a breeze. We drove the rolling hills and winding roads of Chianti, stopping at 2 vineyards,

    Reviewed twice. Wow. And about the same thing. The absence of a pool. Which, let me reiterate, WAS NEVER OFFERED OR ADVERTISED. The tour is fantastic and the villa is a 15th century villa with an immense park around it, vineyards, unique cellars and wine making rooms. I feel so sad that you people only focus on features that were never on the menu to slander one of the best tours in Italy. Mamma mia, the sadness. Don't come back, this land only has magnificent things... But you have to be ALIVE to appreciate them.
