Fabulous for families or anyone wanting to escape the heat and take a well deserved break from the city, this adventure will have you driving an iconic vintage Fiat 500 through the best scenic routes of Tuscany. We begin with an introduction to the Fiat 500 and its handling, and then head for the hills! We head into the Chianti wine district area, all around us monasteries, olive groves and grapevines, and your guide entertains you with history and local knowledge.
During the itinerary we drive on the via Imprunetana and the via Chiantigiana, that offer breathtaking views of the two fabulous country roads Tuscan countryside. We will take two stops, one in front of a very well known terracotta factory, with an amazing view of the Chianti Classico wine district. The second stop is on the way back, along the road, at a spot where you have the chance to take pictures and bask in the beauty of the Florence panorama, the mountains around the city, the Arno river and the city center from above. After the panoramic stops we are hosted in the splendid Renaissance Villa, where a Tuscan lunch is laid with class out for us beside their private swimming pool. Your guide leads you in a professional wine tasting and olive oil savoring while you enjoy a fantastic meal of many Tuscan specialties. We have access to the swimming pool (particularly popular with kids) and towels are provided for your enjoyment. Our tour ends at the villa, and there’s no more driving, so you can relax and enjoy the wine and the rest of the afternoon in good company!
