Exploring Tuscany in a rare 1960s Fiat 500
Driving the manual vintage car yourself with direction from an expert guide
Stop for photo opportunities and to change drivers if you wish
Indulging in a traditional Tuscan lunch (it’s included!)
First meet your beautifully restored vintage car at its home in our garage in the middle of the beautiful Tuscan countryside. You will also meet your tour leader who will give you some expert guidance on how to drive a car from the 1960s.
Top Tip: Don’t forget your driver’s license!
Once you are feeling confident about your car, the Fiat 500 tour begins! We will drive through the streets of Florence before leaving the bustling city behind. We will then take an avenue lined with cypress trees and climb high above the city for some amazing views. You won’t have to worry about getting lost, as you will be following the guide and will be in constant radio contact.
Our first stop is at one of the oldest churches in Florence. There's time for a quick visit inside and a chance to take some great photos of you and your car with the city as your backdrop. Then we set off for a gorgeous drive through the hills. We will travel along narrow stone-walled lanes, past historic villas and fields of olive trees, all the while making short stops to take photos of the wonderful landscape. If you have been riding shotgun, now is your chance to swap places with the driver and have your turn behind the wheel!
Next we will have the chance to sit on a private terrace and take in stunning views of the Tuscan hills, dotted with villas and castles. While we soak up the scenery we can sample some excellent local cheeses and ham and Chianti wine.
Top Tip: Only one glass though! After all, you’re not done driving yet
After more photo opportunities, it's time to return to the garage, taking the most scenic route back. As you reach the tree lined avenues, prepare to turn some heads as you and your vintage Fiat 500 become one of the sights of Florence.
