Overview
Set yourself apart from other Tuscan wine tasters by traveling to an estate in a vintage Fiat. Practice driving with a manual transmission, and set off toward the Tuscan hills with a convoy of retro Fiat 500s. Drive along Chianti’s scenic roads with a guide, taking less-traveled scenic roads you might miss on your own. Pull into a 15th-century wine estate, explore its vineyard and cellars, and sample local wines.
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.

Thank you Mattia for the lovely afternoon. Indeed a lifetime experience driving the Fiat 500 along the Tuscan hills. A stuff of dreams and movies; something which I can look back on fondly whenever I recall this trip. Mattia has a great sense of humour and if you enjoy the 🇮🇹

A truly incredible experience! Our guide Mattea was knowledgeable, funny and extremely helpful for the duration of the tour. My wife and I were lucky enough to be the only ones on this tour so we were even able to stop for coffee along the way. The Fiat (after a quick lesson)

Picture 7x differently coloured 50s and 60s classic Fiat500s in convoy through the Tuscan hills. A modest and fun 17bhp engine ‘roaring’ in the back. Beautiful scenery in the front. Coasting through gorgeous villages in Chianti. Back to an amazing villa for a wine tasting and

We (2 couples) were fortunate enough to be in Florence for 4 days and had the pleasure of joining this experience on Sunday 27th October. From the moment we arrived Mattia (apologies if spelt incorrectly) made us all feel very welcome and his clear explanations on how to drive
