Tour description provided by Viator

Step back to 1960s Italy as you drive an eye-catching vintage Fiat 500 car through Tuscany! Following a guide out of Florence, drive into the lush Tuscan hills, passing through picturesque villages and attracting nostalgic glances from admiring passersby. Your 4-hour tour ends in the best possible way – with a relaxing meal on a private terrace.

This unique Florence tour is limited to five cars (with 15 people total), ensuring you'll enjoy a small-group experience.

Fiat 500s sprung onto the Italian motoring scene in the late 1950s as a stylish yet affordable vehicle. Ever popular, modern Fiat 500s are frequent sights on Florence’s streets, but the vintage models are harder to find. Luckily for you, you'll drive one of these rare classics -- a lovingly restored 1960s model -- on your Fiat 500 tour of Tuscany!

After meeting your guide, walk to the garage where you'll find your vintage car ready and waiting. Listen to a safety briefing before taking part in a practice session, aimed to get you familiar with the car’s manual gears.

Fiat 500s are small compared to most of today’s cars, so with comfort in mind, bookings are only accepted for a maximum of three adults, or two adults and two children, per car. Should your group be larger, no worries – up to 15 people can book, and each group will be divided into separate cars, traveling together in a colorful convoy.

Following your attentive guide (who will be in constant radio contact throughout the tour), drive through Florence’s quieter streets and out into the Tuscan hills. First stop is the Church of San Miniato al Monte, perched on a hill overlooking the city. After enjoying the views, step inside the Romanesque structure, and see why many call it Italy’s most beautiful church.

Driving further into Tuscany, pass through quaint villages, attracting smiles from passersby. Enjoy the attention from onlookers as you make several stops for photos, to chat with your guide or to switch drivers if you wish. Before returning, stop for a meal on a private terrace in the hills. Dishes vary, but will always be typically Tuscan. Expect antipasti, featuring delights such as crostini with tomatoes and locally cured salami. It’s a beautiful ending to your day in Tuscany!
