Meet your expert guide on the outskirts of Florence, and get a safety briefing and introduction to the famous vintage Fiat 500s.
These ultra-cool 4-seaters are a relatively rare sight on Italy’s roads, so this self-drive tour offers an exciting opportunity to get behind the wheel of one of these iconic vehicles. Get driving instructions and take a practice session. The Fiats have manual gears so if you’re the nominated driver, you’ll need to be confident using them.
Once you’re ready, set off in convoy behind your guide into Tuscany’s beautiful countryside.
Trace the peaceful roads across the undulating landscapes, passing leafy vineyards, velvety fields and cypress groves. Make regular photo stops and after roughly two hours, pull up at an elegant country villa.
Leave your Fiat and relax in the gorgeous surroundings. Stroll through the exquisite gardens and feel free to take a swim or laze beside the outdoor swimming pool.
Then, dig into a gourmet picnic lunch by the pool. Dishes vary but expect local favorites such as bruschetta (tomato and basil on toasted bread), cheese, cold meats and pastas. Accompany your food with tastings of wines made at the villa.
After around 2.5 hours at the villa, hop into your Fiat again and end your tour back in Florence.
