Step back to the 1960's and drive an original VINTAGE FIAT 500!
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.
9:30am Departure or 3:00pm Departure
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!
