Anyone can visit Florence and see the highlights on foot. But for a truly unique experience, join this GoBe tour to see the sights from a vintage Fiat 500. Driving through the birthplace of the Renaissance in one of Italy's most classic cars is an experience not to be missed.
You'll make even the locals jealous as you drive by in an automobile harking back to the chic days of postwar Italy, when anything seemed possible. Start at the top, overlooking the city of Florence from the scenic Piazzale Michelangelo. Take in unmatched views before encountering the divine at the Church of San Miniato al Monte nearby. The church dates back as far as the 11th century and contains fascinating medieval Romanesque design elements.
Your tour continues with a visit to the village of Fiesole, perched high above Florence. Established almost 3,000 years ago, Fiesole continues to draw visitors thanks to its rich history and remarkable vistas. Descend into central Florence and finish your tour at the Santa Maria Novella train station, a striking example of modernist architecture in the ancient heart of Florence.
Board your bus or van once more and wrap up your adventure with a drive and free time to visit Pisa, famous for its iconic Leaning Tower. Fittingly, your unforgettable day will end at the Piazza dei Miracoli, the Square of Miracles. As you look back on your excursion, you may indeed think it miraculous that you got to experience Tuscany's finest sights in a true classic, the original Fiat 500.
They say desperate times call for desperate measures. As the enemy forces of Spain and the Holy Roman Empire surrounded Florence in the autumn of 1529, even the bell tower of the San Miniato Church, perched high above the city, became a bulwark against the attackers. The sculptor Michelangelo knew something about underdogs after his work bringing the Biblical hero David to life in marble. He proposed a unique form of protection for the San Miniato bell tower, which now housed two cannon. At his suggestion, the tower was wrapped in wool and mattresses to defend the unfinished structure against assault. Florence held out for ten months, thanks in part, perhaps, to this unusual strategy.
