Overview
You have dreamed of a romantic Italian getaway. Be ready to make that dream a reality with this 4+ hour Fiat 500 tour from Florence with a wine tasting experience. Your guide will lead the convoy on the adventure of a lifetime as you drive your own Fiat 500 through the countryside. The breathtaking view of the Tuscan hills, historic Tuscan Villas, cypress lined roads, endless vineyards and captivating olive groves are visuals you will never forget.
Highlights
  • Go wine tasting with Italian retro style on this tour 
  • Drive your own restored vintage Fiat 500, with plenty of training beforehand
  • Travel with a guide through the Tuscan hills on a special itinerary
  • Spend a few hours at a 15th-century wine estate, sampling local wines
What to Expect
Make your way to a private garage in Florence to find your restored 1960s Fiat 500. Your guide gives you a safety overview and a chance to practice driving with a manual transmission. You won’t hit the road until you feel comfortable driving with manual gears. Set off with a convoy toward the Tuscan hills. Your guide takes you on a scenic itinerary through the Chianti region along secluded country roads, making leisurely stops and providing commentary about the history of the wine region. Pull into the courtyard of the 15th-century villa and wine estate. Spend roughly an hour and half exploring the grounds, having a light lunch in the cellar, and sampling local wines. You’ll then cruise back to your original departure point.

We (two girls) had a blast driving the fiat! The staff was so helpful and professional. The wine and spread after the ride were amazing! If you can drive a manual, I would highly recommend it.

No - or at least, my friend and I didn't need one when we took the tour last year. You do need photo ID.
