    What to Expect
    Make your own way to the tour start point in central Florence. Greet your guide and listen to a safety briefing and background facts about your vintage Fiat 500.

    Often known by their Cinquecento brand name, these famous 4-seater cars took the motoring world by storm in the 1950s, and the early models are among Italy’s most beloved retro cars. The cars have manual gears, so if you’re the nominated driver, you’ll need to know how to use them.

    After getting driving instructions, hop inside your Fiat and drive in convoy behind your guide.

    Head into the Tuscan countryside as the sun sets — the time when the region’s rolling landscapes look especially magical.

    Cruise the tranquil roads and trace a section of the Mille Miglia, the legendary 20th-century round-trip automobile race between Brescia and Rome.

    Wind by vineyards and orchards, and stop to snap photos of the classic Tuscan scenery of farmhouse-topped hills and cypress-lined lanes.

    Arrive at a 15th-century Renaissance villa surrounded by picturesque gardens. Hop out of your Fiat and stroll to the outdoor swimming pool and terrace.

    Admire the gorgeous setting as you savor an Italian aperitivo pre-dinner drink and snack. Enjoy a spritzer cocktail and delicious Tuscan snacks such as cheese, bruschetta (toasted bread topped with tomato and basil) and cold cuts.

    Finish with a glass or two of Chianti and hear how this quintessentially Tuscan wine is produced, bottled and aged. Feel free to partake — the driving part of your tour is over.

    Return to Florence by car or bus with an experienced driver at the wheel. Your tour concludes at the original start point.

    My wife and I booked the Sunset Fiat 500 tour for our stay in Florence to see some of Tuscany and what a great decision it was! We were actually quite lucky that we were the only couple doing this particular tour which meant we had an exclusive private tour. Our Tour guide Alex

    Really was looking forward to this experience but unfortunately TA never confirmed with the company for our reservation. I don't want to penalize this company for that but their listed number for contact was inactive which left us with little options but to leave without

    When we arrived for our tour on May 7, 2019 we were promptly told by Mattia that we were the only ones on the tour that day. He made sure that I knew how to operate a manual transmission by practicing in a long driveway. Prior to departing, you are asked to sign a form and fill

    HI Alison, I'm sorry for your disappointment. Unfortunately the agency you booked through invented a pool that was never there in the first place. As for the rest, you had the same wonderful tour more than 12 thousand amazed people took in our 11 years of activity, so if you didn't like it, I'm sorry, but surely wasn't our fault in any fathomable way. Our standards are insanely high in everything, as all other reviews attest. As for the 15th century renaissance villa... That's exactly where you were when you arrived and tested your vechicles... and if you didn't notice that, I'm not suprised you missed just about everthing else.

    What a great activity! Our Wonderful guide Mattio was a wealth of information and helped make the trip thoroughly enjoyable. Loved our cute little car, we even got to 4th gear twice up and down the countryside. The food and wine were perfect and complemented the trip.
