About
Act like a true Italian with a classic Italian ‘aperitivo’— pre-dinner drinks and snacks — and a drive in a vintage Fiat 500 on this 3-hour sunset tour from Florence. Drive your own 1960s Fiat in a guide-led convoy, and head through the exquisite Tuscan countryside around Florence. Then, as the sun sets, relax over a spritzer cocktail and Tuscan delicacies, followed by a Chianti wine tasting experience.

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.

If I could rate it higher, I would!

At the beginning, Mattia was very clear on the instructions of how to drive the Fiat 500. He let us choose the car we wanted and allowed me to try it a few times before starting the tour.

We followed him for a very LONG tour while enjoying the most amazing views at sunset. We stopped at a couple of places to admire the breath taking views, while Mattia took us some amazing pictures.

He works not only as a great tour guide, but also does the job as photographer and sommelier ;) . We ended the experience by having some snacks and tasting wine and olive oil from the region, all this while having some laughs with Mattia and his brother. It truly felt like having drinks with friends. Would recommend it 100%.

Thank you guys, we loved it!!

Fiat 500 out of 10 ! Fantastic tour and guide
Jul 2020 • Couples
What a wonderful evening!!! Mattia was the hostess with the mostest... His English is very good, I am from the UK and my boyfriend is Italian, and he is so enthusiastic, funny and a great tour guide, who clearly loves his job. I loved driving the fiat 500, it is such a fun idea, and the scenery and weather are just ideal. It was so romantic and interesting, a perfect Friday evening. We stopped at the end for an apperatif and drinks beside the pool under a canopy. Mattia took some awesome photos of us in different locations, which I appreciate. We are actually considering this place a possible wedding location for us in the future. Thanks again for this experience !!! We will be back and also recommend this tour to others..! Dawn & Miki

A Honeymoon Highlight!
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 couldn’t have done a better job at making this tour the wonderful experience it was! He knew that were visiting for our honeymoon and when we arrived, our car (Giacomo) was decorated with a Mr&Mrs sign and a bridal veil! This was a nice touch and set the tone for our trip. Alex gave us very clear instructions on how these unique vintage cars operate both from a safety aspect as well as caring for the mechanical nature of these cars. After our quick tutorial, we set off through the hills of Tuscany, visiting various vineyards and explaining how the different climates and soil affect the production of the grapes. After an hour or so, we stopped by a family vineyard where had some wine and Italian mezze. We also had the chance to have a look at the wine cellar too. We then made our way back to the starting point after a 3 hour round trip. Throughout the trip, Alex was very accommodating, didn’t rush the trip and made sure we had the absolute best time. He was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to have as part of this experience and took lots of photos for us. Will definitely remember this part of our honeymoon for many years to come! Thank you Alex and 500 Club!

Ensure that you confirm booking with local team
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 experiencing the fiats. Hours later and 40 min outside of the city, we waited and no one showed up. This sounded so fun. Super bummed we couldn't do this. I'm sure this is awesome if you can actually get to experience

NOT as advertised -- travelers BEWARE. Big disappointment.
May 2019 • Couples
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 in your credit card info guaranteeing you'll cover damages between $600-2900 should you damage the vehicle. Our route took us through a fairly busy area with a fair amount of traffic (no "tranquil" roads as described. We made ONE stop on a hill where we took a few photos then proceeded to a small store where we sat outside and were given the meats and cheeses while tasting 2 different wines. Let me be CLEAR: There was NO 15th Century Renaissance villa, there was NO sitting by a pool with a spritzer, and worst of all...we had to drive ourselves back after drinking as the sun set! So much for "feel free to partake -- the driving part of your tour is over." This was NOT as advertised! Anyone booking this should confirm PRIOR to departure that you will be doing what is described. I have a feeling they change the route when they only have one booking. They should also be obligated to inform guests ahead of time when changes occur and give you the option of canceling. Very dishonest...

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.

We love Fernando our 1967 Fiat 500!
If you love experiencing vintage cars in an amazing scenery, this is for you! Mattia was an amazing instructor who made us feel at ease with the Fiat 500, and even allowed us to take turns in the driving. We had a chance to stop midway to take pictures at the vineyards and Mattia gave us a brief explanation of the different types of wine in the area. There is also an option to drive a Vespa, which is a nice touch. Driving one of these beauties we learnt to appreciate the modern technology that we so often take for granted. Overall a day to remember!
