Full description
Meet your beautifully restored vintage Fiat 500 at its home in a Florence garage, once the stables and coach house of a Florentine Palazzo. You will also meet your tour leader who will introduce you to the secrets of driving a car from the 1960's. Once you are confident with your Fiat 500, the tour begins. Following the tour leader, and in constant radio contact, you'll drive through the streets of Florence and in a short time, leave the city streets behind. You will take the cypress tree-lined avenue to climb high above the city for some amazing views. The first stop is at one of the oldest churches in Florence. There's time for a quick visit inside and a chance to take some great photos with you and your Fiat 500 with the wonderful backdrop of Florence. Then you'll set off for a panoramic drive into the hills with a radio commentary, along narrow stone walled lanes, past historic villas and fields of olive trees, making short stops to take photos of the wonderful landscape. If you have been riding shotgun, now is your chance to swap places with the driver and have your turn at the wheel. Next, you'll have the chance to sit on a private terrace with stunning long views across the Tuscan hills, dotted with villas and castles. You can soak up the scenery and sample some excellent Tuscan cheeses and ham, with a taste of Chianti wine. After more photo opportunities, it's time to start back to Florence, taking the most scenic route back to the city.

    It was the best experience you could have had in Florence. Alex, our guide, in addition to being very professional and fun, provided a real trip to Tuscany with a journey through beautiful landscapes and streets and alleys of villages near the great Florence. Our Fiat 500 (the old and original) was our vehicle for this great experience. A beautiful lunch with typical Tuscan food could not be missed at a beautiful wine farm… with a spectacular landscape. Thanks Alex!

    This outing was amazing! After a quick lesson we were off driving these beauties through Florence and then out into the countryside. Our guide, Dadio (sp) was great. He offered many insights into Italian culture on our stops. First we drove to San Miniato al monte. We were able to go into the church and look around. The view of Florence from this high hill is amazing. We drove in and out of little towns, through narrow streets, seeing olive groves and beautiful Tuscan countryside. We stopped at an overlook and then at an olive grove. The next stop was at a farmhouse where lunch was waiting for us. It was delicious! We enjoyed relaxing with the others before driving back into town. Thank you for such a memorable experience!
