MAKE YOUR DREAM COME TRUE
Live a memorable day in Tuscany by driving the iconic Fiat 500 vintage car and reaching our cooking school for a typical Tuscan lunch, where you’ll make your own fresh pasta from scratch.
A memorable trip by 500 car
The itinerary begins in Lucca. Here, you’ll meet the car rental representative who will introduce you to properly using the vintage car. From there, you’ll start driving towards your first destination: Montefoscoli, where our cooking venue is located. Along the way, you’ll pass through small villages, and you can make stops to take pictures or enjoy some refreshments.
The journey from Lucca to Montefoscoli is 50 km, and it takes approximately 1.15 hours to drive. However, you can choose to leave early in the morning, stop along the way, and make some little diversions to the Compitese area, Bientina, Buti, Pontedera (the town of the Vespa), and Vicopisano. Some stops can also be made after lunch on the way back.
Pasta making and lunch
It’s important to arrive at the cooking venue no later than 12 pm for pasta preparation with the assistance and instructions of our local cook. Together, you’ll create delicious fresh pasta, which will be part of a well-deserved lunch served at 1 pm. The lunch includes antipasti, your pasta, a delectable sauce, and a tasty dessert.
For those who won’t be driving afterward, wine from the farm will be served. Following that, there’s some free time to visit the farm and enjoy the view. This experience can be a romantic one for two or a fun adventure to share with family and friends, with a maximum of 10 people allowed.
If you have a larger group, we will need to change the cooking location and provide a new quotation for the entire package.
Take a journey into the 60s for a timeless experience that combines classic Italian style with the unique beauty that only the Tuscan countryside can offer. Step on board our vintage Fiat 500 cars, travel back in time, cook with us, and create memories that will last a lifetime.
Vegetarian or Vegan options available on request.
