Self-Drive Vintage Fiat 500 Tour from Florence: Sunset Tuscan Villa and Aperitivo

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Make your own way to the tour start point in central Florence. Greet your guide and listen to a safety briefing and background facts about your vintage Fiat 500.

    Often known by their Cinquecento brand name, these famous 4-seater cars took the motoring world by storm in the 1950s, and the early models are among Italy’s most beloved retro cars. The cars have manual gears, so if you’re the nominated driver, you’ll need to know how to use them.

    After getting driving instructions, hop inside your Fiat and drive in convoy behind your guide.

    Head into the Tuscan countryside as the sun sets — the time when the region’s rolling landscapes look especially magical.

    Cruise the tranquil roads and trace a section of the Mille Miglia, the legendary 20th-century round-trip automobile race between Brescia and Rome.

    Wind by vineyards and orchards, and stop to snap photos of the classic Tuscan scenery of farmhouse-topped hills and cypress-lined lanes.

    Arrive at a 15th-century Renaissance villa surrounded by picturesque gardens. Hop out of your Fiat and stroll to the outdoor swimming pool and terrace.

    Admire the gorgeous setting as you savor an Italian aperitivo pre-dinner drink and snack. Enjoy a spritzer cocktail and delicious Tuscan snacks such as cheese, bruschetta (toasted bread topped with tomato and basil) and cold cuts.

    Finish with a glass or two of Chianti and hear how this quintessentially Tuscan wine is produced, bottled and aged. Feel free to partake — the driving part of your tour is over.

    Return to Florence by car or bus with an experienced driver at the wheel. Your tour concludes at the original start point.

    HI Alison, I'm sorry for your disappointment. Unfortunately the agency you booked through invented a pool that was never there in the first place. As for the rest, you had the same wonderful tour more than 12 thousand amazed people took in our 11 years...More

    Just had the same experience as the other complaint! This is no joke. They switch the plan when there is only one booking.
