Nostalgic experience is a small company which was born of the passion for vintage Italian vehicles and the wish to offer a different concept of tourism.
Our aim is to allow you to discover authentic Tuscany whilst driving our charming vehicles, and give our customers the chance to really experience the enchanted atmosphere of magnificent Tuscan towns with their traditions and local flavours. In order to make our offer more complete we have also created ‘Nostalgic Tours’ which are a real tourist guide able to provide you with information, funny anecdotes and curious facts about the places you decide to visit.
Our vehicles can be rented directly from our headquarters or from a place of your choosing, allowing you to fully customize your tour according to your requirements or interests.
The only limit is your imagination!
Autobianchi Bianchina Transformable
The Bianchina Transformable was produced by Autobianchi for a limited period and was immediately considered a luxury economy car. Its pretty and
particular aesthetic features made this car a symbol of the Italian life style during the legendary 1960s.
FIAT Cinquecento Transformable
The FIAT Cinquecento is the most iconic and famous Italian car, and its ongoing success 60 years after its debut does not show any sign of fading. It is the perfect symbol of the 'economic miracle', and it was this model which opened the way to the widespread use of automobiles in Italy.
Piaggio Vespa 1951 (sidecar set up)
Designed in 1946, the Piaggio Vespa is still iconic. This vehicle represents the passage into the modern era of a country and is the epitome of the stylish Made in Italy. It also played an important role in the socio-economic transformation of post war Italy.

Contacts and bookings
For any questions or queries do not hesitate to contact us by e-mail or using the contact form.
We are open only by appointment, so to book a car we recommend you write to us two days before the chosen hire date and specify all the details requested.
Payment can be made via money transfer (please ensure the fee is paid before the hire date) or at the moment of delivery of the car either in cash or by Visa-Master card-Maestro.
We would like to inform you that the contract is available in loco, and that the hire period can begin after the contract I has been read and accepted.
From today the choice of tours on offer from Nostalgic Experience has increased.
It is with great pleasure that we announce a new service at your disposal which we have designed and developed in full nostalgic style the ‘Nostalgic Tours’.
It has been a long and difficult task but we think it was worth it!
We really wanted to offer you something unique and have spent the last two years discovering places worthy of being visited which are not on the usual tourist route, We chatted to the locals to discover curious anecdotes which we then studied, wrote down, and translated. We learnt how to use complicated software and recorded hours and hours of audio, and tried it all out endlessly on the road.
Finally, we managed!
In addition to the classical sat-nav option, the Nostalgic Tours will be your tourist guide which will activate automatically and allow you to have lots of extra information about the places you see as you drive Pina, Milù or Teresa.
All this is stress-free, we have thought of everything!
