One of the best things we did on our entire European holiday
Take a break from all the crowds and noise, move to the countryside and have a look at some of the grander things Tuscany has to offer, with this tour of Tuscany in a Fiat 500. Experience the Tuscan countryside aboard a vintage car, a true symbol of Made in Italy.
Staying in the usual crowded tourist destination can be quite enjoyable, but it wears away on many people after some time. Take a break from all of the crowds and noise – retreat to the countryside and cruise down the Tuscan roads in one of the most iconic Italian vehicles – the Fiat 500. The only thing which will separate you from the beautiful Italian nature is the intense roar of this classic car's engine.
This tour of Tuscany will begin with an introduction to the vehicles so that you can get an intimate look at them before hopping in. Once the short intro has finished, the drive will begin through the hills scattered around the Florence landscape.
During the tour, you will be driving on a privately owned road. All of the iconic vineyards and olive groves will be present. As you are driving down the walled country roads of Tuscany, landscapes with rich history will appear left and right.
The surrounding area will have plenty of monasteries, grapevines, olive groves, and 15th century villas. If anything interests you in particular, a history guide will be present throughout the tour to provide both general and specific information.
After a while, the tour of Tuscany will continue into the Chianti countryside – filled with things to do and places to see. The Chianti landscape is filled with Tuscan farmhouses, cypress trees, and without doubt vineyards. To make sure that all of the notable features are observed, we drive through a little bit of the 'Mille Miglia' rally.
The Chianti roads are very sleek and have nice, smooth curves for a very enjoyable drive. Every moment spent touring these roads is like browsing through postcard scenes. We will make a stop at the Chianti Classico Vineyard and then later at an olive grove, which has an amazing view of a large portion of the countryside.
Many tourists come to Italy with a large list of things to do. While many of these things are worthwhile, they are undoubtedly frequented areas with a large amount of traffic. If you're looking to break out of the standard tourist itinerary, taking a drive in a vintage Fiat 500 through some of the most beautiful countryside scenes Italy has to offer is a great idea.
