Via Gherardo Silvani 149/A. 50125 . You can reach the clubhouse by private car, taxi or on public bus 36 or 36A. The 36 or 36A bus leaves right outside the Santa Maria Novella train station, about every 20 minutes. The bus stop to get off at is Campi Lunghi, after about 5 stops. Out of the bus, cross the road and keep walking in the same direction of the bus for 20 feet, then you'll see Villa le Piazzole gate with the 500 Touring Club logo underneath

Important information

Know before you go

  • The nominated driver must be a regular manual car driver, and be comfortable behind the wheel of a modern manual vehicle. A vintage car needs an experienced touch, and while it's easy for a manual driver, an automatic driver cannot drive on this tour. We stick to quiet secondary streets at an easy relaxing pace, and always in convoy.

This was our favorite tour of our whole trip to Italy! Driving these old vintage fiats was a dream and seeing the Tuscan countryside in this way really felt like we were blasted back into a different era. Our guides were super friendly and very knowledgeable and provided a safe experience for the group. After driving, we then had a wine tasting with meats and cheeses in an old cellar and it was amazing! The whole experience was a hit - I'd give it more stars if I could.

Super day for a change of pace on Florence.

My son drove and I prayed! He had a blast and I enjoyed meeting the other people, seeing some pretty Tuscan countryside, plus the light lunch was terrific. We caped our five-day trip to Florence with this and it was an appropriate finish to a special time with this son.
