Absolutely the best part of our trip to Florence. My family of four (children 10 and 12) squeezed into a 40+ year old Fiat for an extremely enjoyable trip through the countryside. Something feels just so right having this quintessentially Italian experience, driving through the countryside in a vintage Fiat. Pop on some sunglasses and you can pretend you're Sofia... More

If you can drive a manual transmission, love amazing views, friendly and helpful Italians, and cappuccinos in new quaint towns, this is the tour for you. It was also a nice break from the museums and shopping (not that those weren't wonderful as well). Our guide was passionate about cars, Tuscany, and optimizing our experience.

The Fiat 500 Touring Club and Wine-tasting Tour was great! The tour is really a must when you are on holiday in Tuscany. Beautiful route and a nice guide. Nicolas thanks! :)

My family wanted to do something unique and fun while in Florence. The Fiat 500 tour was the most amazing experience that we could hope to have. The chance to drive a classic car, with the challenge of the double clutch, while trying to see if you could get it all the way up to 4th gear was great fun.... More

We booked this while in Florence on 20th wedding anniversary and it was a brilliant way to celebrate that we won't forget. Fantastic day out, Niccolo was a fabulous guide, and after a bit of a jumpy start we had a brilliant tour round the beautiful countryside in Roberto the blue car! Very thorough briefing and information before we set... More

Easily the best part of our time in Italy! The teenage boys and parents loved riding in our Vintage Fiat 500, Olivia. Niccolo does a great job teaching the history of the car and the process of the double clutch. The tour of the Tuscan wine country is beautiful and driving through it in the quintessential Italian automobile adds a... More

My husband and I scheduled a classic tour for a Tuesday morning at 9 am. We took the 36 bus from in front of Firenze SMN (train station) out to the Campo Lunghi stop (about 30 minutes or so) and walked to the gate for 149A. We were about 45 minutes early, so the gate (it's also the gate to... More

The highlight of our two week Italian holiday in 2014 was hiring Ella - the yellow Fiat 500 from the 500 Touring club. My wife and our two children absolutely loved being driven around the beautiful Tuscan countryside and I relished the challenge of getting the gear changes correct and making best use of the 16 horsepower available. Our guide... More

The four of us, including 2 teenaged children, squeezed into a vintage Fiat 500, Jackimo. After a brief introduction to the art of driving a double clutch, tuning in to some classic Italian music, donning the mandatory Panama hat, and pulling back the sunroof, we were off. The first turn was a bit sketchy, but after that it was smooth... More

Booked this tour after rave reviews on here and we weren't disappointed. Our tour guide Niko was fantastic and really was faultless from carrying out the driving instructions to pouring the wine at the end of the tour. Our car was Roberto, a blue Fiat 500 that originally was a race car. With the sunroof open and Italian music blasting... More
