Overview
This Fiat 500 tour of Florence combines an independent excursion with a guided tour. Drive your own Fiat 500 to panoramic lookout points and stop at a private terrace for a Tuscan lunch. Following a guide means you’ll avoid getting lost and regular stops allow you to change drivers in order to focus on the scenery. Plus, a 2-way radio allows you to stay in contact with your guide throughout.
Highlights
  • Explore Florence in a rare 1960s Fiat 500
  • Drive yourself but benefit from the direction of a guide
  • Stay in contact throughout with a 2-way radio
  • A traditional Tuscan lunch is included
What to Expect
Your tour begins in central Florence, where you’ll greet your guide and head to a garage to collect your rare 1960s version of a Fiat 500. Following a safety briefing, you’ll climb inside and take to the roads as your guide takes the lead. Head up into the hills of Tuscany and make a stop at the Romanesque church of San Miniato al Monte, hailed as one of the city’s most beautiful structures. Then, revitalize with a Tuscan lunch on a private terrace. After feasting on local specialities, such as cured salami and crostini, you’ll return to your original departure point in Florence.
