Vintage Fiat 500 Tour FAQ

  • What happens when I have made a reservation?

    Once you have made your reservation and made the payment by credit card through our secure website, you will be able to print the information or save it to your mobile device to bring with you to the check-in. You will be able to access all the information at any time by logging in to our website.

  • What is the cancellation policy?

    We offer a full refund to any cancellation made more than 72 hours before the start of the tour.

  • What if my plans change and I want to change the day of the tour?

    If you would like to change the day of your tour, you may do so (depending on availability) no less than 24 hours before the start of the tour.

  • Do you pick us up from our hotel?

    We do not organise hotel pick-ups for difficulties with parking and scheduling, but our meeting point at our office on Via Vinegia, 23r is very central and should be easy to get to. We are just behind the Palazzo Vecchio from which many hotels are located within easy walking distance of. Otherwise a taxi (you could ask your hotel to book it for you) would be the fastest option, dropping you off right at our office.

  • Do tours get cancelled because of bad weather or not enough people?

    We run our tours with any number of people, rain or shine as we don't want a little bit of rain to ruin the chance for you to experience the beautiful places we take you to.
    If in extreme circumstances we have to cancel a tour, we will refund the price paid for the tour.

  • What if I have never driven one before?

    You must have experience of driving a stick shift car and an understanding of gears.

  • Do I have to drive stick shift or do you have automatics?

    Our Vintage Fiat 500's only have stick shift gears so you must have experience of driving a car with gears.

  • Is driving in Florence difficult?

    Driving in Italy can be a little different, so just like driving anywhere in the world you must be alert and vigilant and follow the tour leader's instructions.

  • What if I lose sight of the leader?
