NEW! Fascinating and fun classic wheels, vineyards and olive groves, prestigious wineries: the Tuscan countryside experienced at its best!
Meet your guide in the city centre and then reach the marvellous Tuscan countryside with an approx. 30 min. ride on a comfortable minivan. Your destination is a magnificent Noble Villa in the Chianti wine region, overlooking Florence.
Receive an orientation on the basic Italian street rules and on how to perfectly drive your classic FIAT 500 car (probably the most popular Italian car from the Fifties and Sixties) and its manual gearshift and depart with the actual tour, following the tour leader in front of you.
Breath-taking Tuscan landscapes, gentle Chianti rolling hills framed by cypress trees and enriched by vineyards and olive groves, will be the spectacular views around you. Several stops for photo opportunities will be made along the way.
Visit a first sumptuous winery, enjoying a guided tour of their ancient cellars, and learn all the secrets of wine production. Then reach a family-run organic farm and winery, to experience the differences in their approach to wine making.
A delicious Tuscan meal will then await you back at the Noble Villa's cellars, where you will get off the cars and relax savouring typical products and recipes as well as some of the wines from the wineries you just visited (no drink and drive on the tour!).
The minivan will then bring you back to the city center, after the most memorable experience: a Tuscany discovery on an Italian vintage icon, the FIAT 500 classic car.
