if you're ever in Florence Italy - the COOLEST thing to do is see the Tuscany valley in these vintage Fiat 500 cars. There are driving tours, wine tasting tours, cooking tours and more. We found their site accidentally while surfing on Trip Advisor - tried it - and it was the best thing we did on our 2 month... More

There is a reason for all of the 5 star reviews. The wine tasting tour far exceeded our expectations. Beppe, his lovely wife and staff have something special here and you owe it to yourself to experience the 500 Touring Club.

On my very first trip to Italy (my wife's second), I had grandiose visions of renting a car and driving through the Tuscan countryside. Prior to arrival, I got my international driver's license, booked the rental and then – story after story of tickets, complications and not to mention, I had no idea of where I was going to drive...

My husband I drove "Fernando" through the Tuscan countryside, which was a 1968 Fiat 500. We saw the vineyards, the olive groves, maneuvered curving and narrow streets, and finished the morning and early afternoon with a private lunch in the cellar with meats, cheeses, mousse and four flights of wine. The double-clutching and the soft brakes were a little tricky... More

Absolutely loved this. Andrea and her team were lovely, the tour was great and the wine tasting was even better. The drive around Tuscany and the villa itself were breathtaking. Totally recommend.

Wanting to find something a little different to do with my teenage son this seemed a fun idea. We had a great time! Our lovely tour guide David drove us around in 'topsie' giving us plenty of photo opportunities and telling us about the local sights before heading to the cellar. Our group spent the next couple of hours sampling... More

We had the BEST time on this tour. We drove Fernando who is a super cute turquoise Fiat and had so much fun. The Tuscan countryside really is a must-see and what better way to do it than in a classic Italian car? The wine tasting at the Italian villa was also great and a perfect way to end the... More

My husband and I spent a joyful day motoring about the foothills of Florence in a beautifully restored Fiat 500 with 500 Touring Club. It will be one of the most treasured days from this vacation, in no small part due to the kind and thoughtful information we received from Beppe. We learned about how to double clutch (so cool!),...

When we met Beppe, it was a cool Tuscan morning in early March. He was waiting for us with several cute Fiat 500s for us to choose from. We chose a 1969 "sport" model for our adventure. After a brief orientation to the cars, we set off, winding our way around picturesque country roads, taking in the view, and getting... More
