Experience the Tuscan countryside by vintage Fiat 500 on an 8-hour tag-along scenic driving tour. Stop for a light lunch at a Chianti winery and marvel at medieval villages in the rolling hills of the famous wine region.
Activité extra mais énorme cafouillage au départ de florence :une centaine de personnes partant dans plusieurs excursions différentes ,avec deux guides qui géraient par terre, sur leurs genoux, dans le hall de la gare , les vérifications ,ça c'était pénible ,et exaspérant ,1h30 d'attente !!Mais une fois partis tout parfait, super drôle, très bien organisé et loueur de voiture formidable! Journée sensationnelle à recommander ,ça vaut la peine!!!
Excellent tour with Stephano and Dimitri. Thet were really great fun and with their excitement and fun you would never guess they did the tour every day. Lorenzo at the vineyard was so passionate and lovely and the "light lunch" was a fantastic three courses. Delicious!
Spend an unforgettable day driving an original and perfectly restored Fiat 500, in the Chianti region. Well, the day was, in fact, unforgettable but probably not the way intended. We started out at the Florence train station, herded into a van for an hour drive outside of the city. Our driver had Bollywood rap on the radio and turned it so we could all enjoy it.
Once we got to the start point we were informed that the Fiat drivers had to follow the Vespa drivers. Really??? Suffice to say we never got out of 2nd gear. A lot of the drive time, which totaled maybe 1 3/4 hours of the 9 hour day was spent in first gear following the scooter drivers.
After 1/2 hour of paperwork the scooter drivers needed over an hour of instruction, so we stood around outside waiting. That is until we found out there weren't enough 500s to go around, so one couple had to drive a Mini. Off we go to visit a couple of hill towns, then wait until everyone show back up to mount up on their freaking scooters and away we putted.
And lunch at a winery....much anticipated until we got to the winery. It was raining so the guides wouldn't let us drive up the hill to the winery, we had to park down below and hike up through the muddy vines to the top. Groovy. Lunch consisted of overcooked pasta with a canned tomato sauce in a plastic tub, some poor grade prosciutto, and some crummy sweets all washed down with their own insipid wines.
Not recommended for anyone who actually wants to take a drive in the Tuscan countryside.
