What To Expect

The Fiat 500 swiftly became Italy’s favorite little car when it was first introduced near the end of the 1950s. Its retro-chic look has made early models the most desired vintage cars today in Italy, and you’ll have the chance to hit the road with one yourself.

Make your way to a private garage in Florence, where you’ll find your restored 1960s Fiat 500. Your guide will give you a safety overview and the opportunity to practice with the manual gears. The selected driver for each group must feel confident behind the wheel before you set out.

Then, you’re off! Travel with your convoy into the Tuscan hills as your guide leads the way. Hear insightful commentary about the history of the wine region as you drive along the secluded country roads.

After a scenic drive through the Chianti region, you’ll pull into the villa and wine estate, dating back to the 15th century. See the Itinerary section for details on the two activities to choose from before making the journey back to Florence.

Chianti Road (Pass By)

Learn about the region’s prestigious Super Tuscan wines on a 1.5-hour tour of the wine estate. With your knowledgeable guide, explore the vineyards and cellars, and then taste several local wines. During the tour, sit down in the wine cellar to enjoy a light lunch of crostini, meats and cheeses. You’ll have time to spend at leisure in the grounds after your wine-tasting tour ends, simply relax and sun yourself in the grounds!

This is the best excursion we have ever been on and it was our most fun day in Florence! David the owner of the company was fantastic and our tour guide was so knowledgeable about the region and gave a good demo about the vintage cars and how they work! The wine tasting and snacks were such a fun time getting to know the other people traveling in the group! Overall great experience we loved it!
Fun adventure
Emma_G, Mar 2023
Had a great time time touring through the Tuscan countryside. The cars were very fun to drive and the guides were lovely and knowledgeable! It is easy to do with a US drivers license as long as you have experience with stick shift. You can get to the meeting point from the Florence train station via tram and a short walk.
Tuscany countryside and fun driving
Stacey_S, Feb 2023
Our guide, Alessandro, was amazing. We got to know him during the wine tasting. I held my own while driving the car over the narrow, winding roads and breathtaking Tuscan countryside. The cars have not been overhauled. They emit the aroma of exhaust, one must stand on the brake to stop the car, and they need to be driven mostly in second and third gear. The cars are over 50 years old, after all. This was an exhilarating experience and lots of fun.
Best day of our trip.
Katy_B, Jan 2023
Bit of a rough start, our car broke down. However, this just added to the adventure and was quickly resolved for us. It was an amazing trip and would definitely recommend. Was the highlight of our entire trip to Florence.
Fiat self drive
Ellen_O, Dec 2022
Overall tour was good. Guide - Frank was great. Cars not well maintained. Tour base location is moving in January, so while we had a great tour, the staffing, location are changing.
I would definitely recommend this.
Daniel_H, Dec 2022
Our host was fantastic. Total fun with a bit of history, wine tasting, nice lunch. The cars were fantastic. Gabriel was patient and fun.
Fun day in a Fiat!
Joseph_H, Nov 2022
The Fiat 500 tour was lots of fun! A little cool in November. A blanket would have been nice. Our tour guide, Alessandro was great! Informative and made sure we all stayed close even when driving through areas where there were other vehicles. We’d highly recommend. 8th time in Florence, 1st time Fiat 500.
A must do
Nina_S, Nov 2022
Really great way to see the city. The host was so incredibly nice about us being late and accommodating! Would highly recommend!!
Yvette_H, Nov 2022
I had an unfortunate health experience on my honeymoon for which I could not attend the tour; I was very much looking forward to this one, I tried to get my money back without any luck. Very disappointed.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
24hr hour notice is all that was required to receive a full refund. Viator maintains very simple refund policies. The client attempted to cancel just before the tour began. Guides and venue were booked and paid for.
La Dolce vita
Chaitanya_G, Nov 2022
Such a fun and fantastic experience! Driving the Fiat 500, through the winding roads of the beautiful Chaiti region of Firenze was truly an experience not to be missed! Ended with some great wine and cheese! What’s not to love in la dolce vita 😊
Best Tour Ever
Hana_L, Nov 2022
If anyone wants to visit Florence and looking for a wine tour. I highly highly recommend this unforgettable experience to anyone. My friend does not drink so she got to drive the fiat and i got drink wine which was a win win. Bella and Filippo were the best hosts and it was the best choice we picked. Thank you Bella and Filippo, we had such an amazing time.
Upon arrival the host...
Joy_M, Nov 2022
Upon arrival the host required surcharge of $15 euros cash and that was not in description. All couples paid buying would guess some folks in future May not be prepared
Response from Host, Nov 2022
With the sudden jump in fuel prices this year the fuel surcharge was necessary to cover the unexpected costs. The fuel surcharge is clearly noted on our website and on Viator. The fee is not added to price since it would be subject to commissions.
Fiat 500 and fun, fun, fun!
Travis_W, Nov 2022
The Fiat 500 tour was super fun! The wine tasting and winery tour was perfect with the beautiful view of Tuscany’s countryside. Our Guide was superb!
1970 FIAT - Chianti, Toscana
Tracy_V, Nov 2022
It was a wonderful experience. I love old school cars so driving a 1970 FIAT was one of the highlights of my whole trip. And add driving it through Chianti, Tuscany made everything that much better. The wine tour/tasting and food was delicious as expected. The tour guide (Alessandro) was amazing so kind, helpful and knowledgeable. He made us feel very comfortable and safe. If there is one tour you want to do while you are an Italy, this should be your only pick.
Nice tour!
Mike_C, Oct 2022
Great tour - friendly guides. Cars were awesome and hilarious. Nice venue for the wine tasting and a relaxed setting
Tuscany in a vintage Fiat
Maria_S, Oct 2022
We had such an amazing time! We are still talking about it with our friends and family and amongst ourselves. The area is amazingly beautiful and the cars are so much fun to ride and drive. We loved it! It was one of our favorite tours of the entire 3 week trip!
Unique and fun
Katherine_Y, Oct 2022
Fun and unique way of seeing the countryside. The description isn't 100% clear that you drive around for 2ish hours and then come back to the starting point to taste the wine and food. The guides were very kind and knowledgeable. Great overall experience!
Evie_W, Oct 2022
This is how we spent my boyfriends birthday & it was perfect! Driving the old cars was an experience in itself, but the winery was amazing as well as the lunch! I would recommend this to anyone. It was the perfect day.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thrilled to hear that you enjoyed this unique Italian event. Hopefully we will see you again when Florence calls you to visit.
Fiat for the win
Diane_T, Oct 2022
This tour was a dream and definitely the highlight of my trip! Being able to drive a vintage Fiat is such a unique experience compared to all of the Vespa tours out there. The cars are adorable and have retractable roofs so you can cruise with the sun shining down on you. The food and wine at the end of the tour was a lovely way to end the day. This is the best way to see Tuscany!
Countryside via Fiat in Tuscany!
Julie_T, Oct 2022
The vintage fiats are wonderful. They come with all the features of vintage cars and make for a very fun trip. You'll cruise the beautiful countryside. The hosts (Bella) makes the trip a delight. It was so much fun getting to know all the other participants. A very nice Italian Lunch (pasta, cheeses, breads) and hood wine were served in a Tuscany setting. You will not be disappointed. A real blast. Cars are not difficult to drive. Basically 3 gears. A real highlight.
