I cannot recommend this experience highly enough. Stefano and Paolo were wonderful, so enthusiastic about their cars and the local area, phenomenal service. We made a special detour between visiting Florence and Siena to drive Betty for the day and it was thorougly worth it. She is a beautiful Fiat 500 from 1966, and had such character to drive!! It felt like we had gone back in time. Paolo (Stefano's dad) was so kind and helpful, helping us to plan a day's drive (Highlights we're Montepulciano and Pienza). Also recommended is the gorgeous La Locanda di Cetona for a great night's sleep after a day of driving. Hope you all have as much fun as we did :)

I was amazed since the firt email that I received from Stefano! All the experience was perfect and fun!
Me and my husband spent one day travelling through Tuscany hills with Betty (red500) and I never had so much fun!
And I can`t thank enough Stenafo and his father for all the kindness! They were really sweet! And that`s only why I didn`t stole Betty for me to bring her to Brazil =) lol

we rented Betty for our first stay in Tuscany in September. Paulo was absolutely fantastic he and his wife were so friendly and helpful.

It was lovely driving Betty who was so full of character and we used most of the guides that were provided with her.

I can not recommend or praise Slow Hills enough.

Took the vintage Vespas, Nanni and Mr Joe, for two days and had an incredible time riding through Tuscany and Umbria. Stefano and his father were great...very kind and helpful folks.

Our stay in Cetona was great. The weather, the people, the food,...
We rented Nani from Slowhills and drove to Montepulciano, Asciano, Montalcino etc. Nice, quiet roads and a nice temperature.
The people from Slowhills provided some great features like gloves, t-shirt, maps etc. They gave a detailed explanation about the Vespa and how to drive it, all with a friendly smile.

Tip!

Rent the Betty 500 was a WONDERFUL and LOVELY experience! It was emotional to use a such car for this event!

We wanted to travel to Tuscany, getting rid of our watches and by getting lost through rural roads enjoy the beauty of those incredible landscapes...

It was not just a car what we were looking for. We cared for the aesthetic and a service in line with our relax and personal approach.

Slow Hills provided just what we were looking for. A fantastic 1966 FIAT 500 car (on incredible good shape), with whom we fall in love since moment zero. In fact, the car was not the car. It was "Betty" (as @ Slow Hills everything is surrounded by a charming personal and familiar atmosphere). Very customer oriented, Slow Hills people made their best to guarantee the success of our journey...
Exactly as reflected on its website www.slowhills.com

What a nice experience!
Together with some friends we tested this funny attraction in Cetona
(Siena) -Tuscany .
We rent two vintage Fiat 500 and a Vespa. Every car and vespa has a
special name, Betty and Rudolph for the Fiat 500, Nanni for the Vespa.
Cool idea.
At first we've been taught about the manual gear and some other
tricks, then we drove by our own in a beautiful landscape. Sunny
weather and good red wine, great atmosphere. Saturday was a stunning
approach and well worth it.
On Sunday we chose the spa route, we tried the first one, "Fonteverde"
in San Casciano dei Bagni, spending a very relaxing day.
Slowhills guys were really nice and available and gave us a free kit
with a lot of funny stuff: t-shirt, cotton bag, leather gloves and
stickers. Wow!
Put this trip on your list!
