My husband & I had so much fun driving through Tuscany in the vintage fiat. My husband of course drove us but he had a short lesson by the tour guide & he was already familiar with driving a standard. He picked it up very easy & it was a unique way to tour the Chianti region. The two guides were very nice & informative. The tour consisted of a couple stops in charming, quaint Chianti towns, one family owned vineyard with wine tastings & a nice lunch. We had a stop for some delicious gelato & then made our way back to our starting point. The tour did not last 8.5h as advertised but it was still a lengthy day & we appreciated when it ended. They did provide pick up & drop off from the local train station, which was convenient for us, as we were staying quite a ways away from Siena. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for a memorable yet unique time touring the Chianti wine region of Tuscany!
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!
My son drove and I prayed! He had a blast and I enjoyed meeting the other people, seeing some pretty Tuscan countryside, plus the light lunch was terrific. We caped our five-day trip to Florence with this and it was an appropriate finish to a special time with this son.
The old Fiat 500 was absolutely a joy to drive through the beautiful countryside of Italy. Our guide was great and very accommodating. The villa and winery was so beautiful, I would recommend this to anyone traveling to Florence who can drive a manual car.
It was a lot of fun to drive the car around the country side and through the small town. The winery was beautiful and the food was delicious
