We had a great time on this vintage Fiat 500 tour! We went all over with a mix of small city streets and the highway. We stopped at a street food market, several churches/piazzas, up to Monreale, and the nearby beach as well. The cars were very popular with everyone who saw them and also easy to drive. Thanks Salvo and Marco!

We had a fantastic time! Being Brits we were initially nervous about driving on the right hand side of the road but we were fine. We followed Salvo's car in front which really helped us navigate and took us on some really interesting routes around the city. We managed to squeeze in Monreale (including getting out to see the cathedral) and Mondello beach within the time. If you want someone to explain everything you can hire a guide as well as the driver which would make an especially good experience. As we had already been on a walking tour earlier that day, Salvo was enough for us. He was also so kind and left us some snacks and water in the car as well as taking lots of great photos for us on his phone. The Fiat 500 is great little car and was fun to open up the roof to pose for photos (very Instagram friendly). An experience I would highly recommend. 5 stars!
