This was just pure and simple fun. From the start, David our host was very nice, passionate and knowledgeable. The stars of the show, the Fiats are simply amazing. We drove Paola, the pretty red one and she responded like the star that she is. The drive and scenery were remarkable. We would highly recommend this attraction to anyone visiting... More

Great experience. Loved our your guide. It was fun just driving around and experiencing the countryside. I also loved the cheesy old classic Italian music we had the option of playing in the car. Be sure you can comfortably drive a stick shift though before booking this tour. My only regret was not booking the tour where you stop and... More

We just finished an amazing tour of the Chianti country side in a vintage 1950's Fiat. The day started with brief but detailed instructions on how to double-clutch and then off we went for a 2.5 hour driving tour in the Chianti region. Near the end of the drive we stopped at a beautiful hillside Villa and had a gourmet... More

We did a tour and wine tasting with Niccolò a few weeks ago... I must say this was one of my favorite things on our trip in Italy. I hate cheesy tourist traps but this is far from it....truely a great adventure. We took a 20 minute bus ride from the Central Train Station in Florence and dropped off right... More

This is one of the best ways to experience Florence. We chose the “Wine-tasting Tour” that took us up the hills and through the valleys of Florence. Giacomo is a very nice car and very easy to drive. We drove at a nice pace, which allowed us to enjoy the scenic routes. The Chianti region was an amazing experience on... More

My girlfriend and I just took the wine tasting tour today and it was Excellent! Giuseppe (aka Bepe) was our guide/Fiat instructor/local expert/wine connoisseur and was awesome. He walked us all through a short safety/training session on how to drive the cars - then we were off thru the Tuscany countryside! The fiats are a blast to drive and the... More

We joined the "Driving and Wine making tour" in late September 2013. I was thrilled when I saw the colorful vintage Fiat lining up in the garden waiting for us. After a short briefing, we all got used to manage the car without difficulties. We stopped at several scenery spots, tasted some juicy wild fruits and herbs. At the end... More

Okay well if this isn't the cutest and coolest way to tour the Tuscan countryside, I don't know what is. We had so much fun with Beppe and Andrea and their fleet of adorable vintage Fiat 500s. We are totally not tour people, but we LOVED this tour. Thanks guys!! You can read more about our tour here: http://www.riveted-blog.com/2014/05/touring-chianti-in-vintage-fiat-500s.html

If you're spending more than a couple of days in Florence and you are comfortable with a manual transmission, this is one of things that you have to do while visiting. We took the wine-tasting tour and had an amazing time. You start by familiarizing yourself with the car and then taking off as part of a convoy of Fiats... More
