Overview
Set yourself apart from other Tuscan wine tasters by traveling to an estate in a vintage Fiat. Practice driving with a manual transmission, and set off toward the Tuscan hills with a convoy of retro Fiat 500s. Drive along Chianti’s scenic roads with a guide, taking less-traveled scenic roads you might miss on your own. Pull into a 15th-century wine estate, explore its vineyard and cellars, and sample local wines.

Highlights
  • Go wine tasting with Italian retro style on this tour 
  • Drive your own restored vintage Fiat 500, with plenty of training beforehand
  • Travel with a guide through the Tuscan hills on a special itinerary
  • Spend a few hours at a 15th-century wine estate, sampling local wines
What to Expect
Make your way to a private garage in Florence to find your restored 1960s Fiat 500. Your guide gives you a safety overview and a chance to practice driving with a manual transmission. You won’t hit the road until you feel comfortable driving with manual gears. Set off with a convoy toward the Tuscan hills. Your guide takes you on a scenic itinerary through the Chianti region along secluded country roads, making leisurely stops and providing commentary about the history of the wine region. Pull into the courtyard of the 15th-century villa and wine estate. Spend roughly an hour and half exploring the grounds, having a light lunch in the cellar, and sampling local wines. You’ll then cruise back to your original departure point.

Trip last Feb was cancelled, waiting for 5 months for a refund. Owner promised to refund. This has not happened, he not replied since. I understand the difficulties they might be going through, but we need people to follow on their commitments.
