Find Your Vintage FIAT 500

Before setting off on the ride of a lifetime, head to your meeting point in front of Biblioteca Nazionale, where your guide will be waiting for you. Once your group is together, your friendly guide will take you to a nearby garage where your restored, vintage FIAT 500 from the 1960s will be waiting!

Your tour leader will give you a quick tutorial on driving this manual, vintage vehicle, and then you’ll be ready to hit the road! You’ll be given a two-way radio to stay in contact with your guide, so there’s no need to worry about getting lost during your trip.

Cruise Through Florence in Style

Get behind the wheel and be ready to turn heads as you cruise down the streets of Florence. Even though you’re still in the city, enjoy a scenic drive as you follow your guide down a breathtaking avenue lined by cypress trees.

Continue following your guide to an incredible, panoramic viewpoint of Florence. Admire the city’s striking skyline and snap a few photos with your vintage FIAT 500 against this unmatched backdrop.

Before getting back behind the wheel, stop inside a stunning, hilltop church, which is one of the oldest in Florence.

Drive Through the Countryside

Now that you’re back in the driver’s seat, it’s time to leave the traffic of the city behind, in favor of lush, rolling hills. Admire Tuscany’s legendary countryside as you drive along narrow, stonewalled lanes, ancient villas, and fields filled with olive trees. Of course, there will be plenty of time to stop for amazing photos. You couldn’t ask for a better backdrop to feature your vintage vehicle!

If you’ve been riding in the passenger's seat, this is also a great time to switch things up and get behind the wheel if you feel like doing so!

Traditional Tuscan Lunch

Driving through the winding streets of Tuscany is sure to work up an appetite! Now, it’s time to indulge in traditional Tuscan delicacies. From a private terrace, admire majestic views of castles and villas sitting atop lush, green hills. Take it all in as you devour Tuscan local specialties, such as cheese, prosciutto, and a glass of Chianti wine.

We’ll stop at one glass this time, as you’ve still got more driving to do!

Back to Florence

After snapping more photos from your incredibly scenic lunch views, it’s time for one more ride in your dream car! Follow your guide as you take the scenic route back to Florence, soaking in the enchanting landscape one more time. While you cruise into the city and back to the garage, you’ll feel like an Italian movie star as you make heads turn!
