Vintage Fiat 500 Tour


Description

TAKE THE WHEEL OF AN ICONIC FIAT CINQUECENTO!

This is your chance to drive one of these historic cars, loved by Italians for over half a century. Follow your tour leader through glorious Tuscan scenery with photo stops along the way and a chance to sample some delicious local food.

Meet your beautifully restored vintage Fiat 500 at its home in a Florence garage, once the stables and coach house of a Florentine Palazzo. You will also meet your tour leader who will introduce you to the secrets of driving a car from the 1960's.

Once you are confident with your Fiat 500, the tour begins! Following the tour leader, and in constant radio contact, we drive through the streets of Florence and in a short time, leaving the city streets behind, we take a cypress tree lined avenue to climb high above the city for some amazing views.

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 with you and your Fiat 500 with the wonderful backdrop of Florence. Then we set off for a panoramic drive into the hills with a radio commentary, along narrow stone walled lanes, past historic villas and fields of olive trees, 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 at the wheel!

Next we have the chance to sit on a private terrace with stunning long views to the Tuscan hills, dotted with villas and castles. While we soak up the scenery we can sample some excellent Tuscan cheeses and ham, with a taste of Chianti wine. After more photo opportunities, it's time to start back to Florence, taking the most scenic route back to the city. At last it's back to the riverside to turn some heads as you and your Vintage Fiat 500 become one of the sights of Florence!

I had a blast touring with Alex, our tour leader. We had 5 vespa and 4 vintage Fiat 500 touring from Florence to Tuscany and had lunch in Tuscany. It's a manual car with 4 gear and it's easy to drive one if you use to drive a manual. It's a great experience, I really had a great time.

Lots of fun driving a vintage Fiat 500 out of Florence and into the hills. The guide and great and did an amazing job leading out group of Vespas and 500s. A couple of brief sightseeing stops along the way and then a lunch at a beautiful spot before driving back. A real highlight.

We did a great tour with a Fiat 500. We saw beautiful places to take beautiful pictures. Our guide Fabian had fascinating stories, with a touch of humor, about the places we visited. We had a very nice lunch in a nice place. I can recommend the tour if you want to taste Tuscany.

Incredible experience Guide: Angel if you qualify from 1 to 10, would place 11 points. He is friendly, kind and willing, he takes the time to interact with the members of the tour. Do not miss this experience. Duration: perfect because the places and the experience are wonderful and we are comfortable. Beautiful landscapes, excellent food and the wonder of transport in the past in this wonderful car. In my case it was a very special experience since I learned to drive in an original FIAT 500

The best way to see Florence is riding a vespa behind Fabulous Fabian He expertly winds you through the streets and sights of Florence. Besides the beauty of the city and dinner overlooking hills and vineyards, you'll have so much fun! I promise you won't regret it. Tell him hello from Sandy & Yvonne!

Sicuramente il momento clou del nostro viaggio in Italia! Ero abbastanza nervoso in sella alla vespa visto che non avevo mai guidato uno scooter prima, ma con il passare delle ore con più pratica, ho avuto sempre più confidenza con esso. Tutto era bello dall'ospite (Angelo), le lezioni di storia, la vista, l'orto e la cena in un posto bellissimo tra le colline della Toscana. Lo consiglierei! ! !

Quando siamo andati in giro per Firenze abbiamo visto i cartelli di Walkabout Florence Tours sapevamo solo che dovevamo fare un tour della Fiat 500. È stato così divertente guidare per le strade di Firenze e su per le colline dove abbiamo finito la giornata con una cena fantastica e una vista fantastica. Durante il tour abbiamo avuto alcune fermate dove Fabian la nostra guida turistica ci ha intrattenuto con fatti e storie. Ed è davvero un grande intrattenitore:) Il suo inglese è eccellente, quindi non preoccuparti potresti non capirlo. Posso davvero consigliare questo tour! Se vuoi fare qualcosa di straordinario e divertirti molto, dovresti prenderlo davvero!
