Tour description provided by Viator

Live the romance of 1960s Italy as you drive a vintage Fiat 500 to a luxury Tuscan villa for a private candlelit dinner! On this private evening tour from Florence, you’ll follow an expert guide through the bewitching Tuscan countryside, where you’ll see the sun set as you drive. On arrival at the luxury villa, relax over a 4-course Tuscan meal with wine, served by a private butler. It’s the perfect evening for any special occasion, be that an end-of-vacation meal, anniversary or even a romantic proposal!

The loveable Fiat 500 is a true Italian icon to people the world over. Impossibly cute and fun, they sprung to attention in a scene from the hit romantic film Roman Holiday, when Gregory Peck stepped through the roof of his Fiat 500 to open the door for Audrey Hepburn. Since then, the classic car has become a timeless favorite.

On your 5-hour evening tour, you’ll have the chance to relive the famous scene from Roman Holiday by driving your own 1960s model! After meeting your private guide at a garage in Florence, listen to the comprehensive safety briefing and be part of the practice session to get used to the manual gears of the Vintage Fiat 500s before setting off to make sure you’re competent using them.

Leave Florence behind and head to the hills following your guide. As you drive along secluded roads with little traffic through the Tuscan and Chianti regions, framed by vineyards and olive groves, see the sun set over Florence.

After two hours of leisurely driving, with several panoramic photo stops, arrive at a gorgeous 15th-century Renaissance villa, buried deep in the Tuscan countryside. Your guide will lead the way through the villa’s stunning garden to a candlelit table, where your 4-course meal will be served. Sit back and relax as a private butler serves you antipasto, fresh pasta, Florentine steak and salad, followed by dessert and coffee. In true Tuscan style, dinner is simple, yet made with the finest fresh, quality ingredients and accompanied by wine from the villa. Vegetarian diets can be catered for – just note this on booking.

After spending as much time as you like at the villa exploring the gardens, dining and enjoying the wine, your butler will call a taxi to take you back to Florence.
