Full description

Do your sightseeing in Rome from behind the wheel of an iconic vintage Fiat 500. Drive behind your guide and take in the sights in style. Cruise past sights like the Colosseum, the Tiber river, and the Circus Maximus. Choose from a 1.5 hour tour or a 3-hour tour. 

Departing from a garage just meters from the Colosseum, set off on your Roman adventure. If you don’t feel like driving, then a driver can be provided for a small surcharge. The tour is designed to reach spots that the big hop-on, hop-off buses can’t get to. 

Feel like a movie star on the red carpet as you turn heads wherever you go.Be as much of an attraction as the Roman Forum and narrow streets of Trastevere from the seat of your candy-colored car. 

Stop from time-to-time to take pictures of sites along your route at locations like the Arch of Constantine and Circus Maximus. Discover the secret keyhole of Aventine Hill and the charming Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta (Piazza of the Knights of Malta).

Drive along the Lungotevere, following the banks of the River Tiber. And cross into Trastevere, where the tight streets are a breeze for vehicles as small as the Fiat 500. Listen as your provides some brief insights before you head off again.

Drive at a leisurely pace, never going faster than 18.5 mph (30 kmph). Vehicles even have a soft-top roof so you can enjoy the sun. Stop for a cappuccino or espresso, or one of the most incredible ice creams in Rome.

We had the absolute best time on this tour! Alex and Michael were the best!!!Alex was extremely knowledgeable about Rome and its history!! He went above and beyond for us in several ways. One thing was that we were late. I got mixed up on the directions and went to the wrong place. In addition to this, it was a Sunday and we KEPT getting our rides canceled by Uber. I was literally in tears and crying because of the circumstances. Any other tour guide would have left without us. But Alex waited for us and then extended the tour for us. Also, I was with my mother, Diana, who is older with mobility problems. He was so polite and patient with her, even helping to assist her to walk at times. We were so incredibly impressed with his kindness and patience. My mother absolutely adored him. The tour itself was fantastic! It was hands down of the funniest things that we did in Rome, My 21 year old daughter and her friend loved it. We wish that we could go back and do it again!!!!

A magnificent tour in the small and large streets of Rome, led by our great guide Alex who was able to juggle between English, Italian and French with a great command of these languages. He shared with us his love for this eternal city and his passion was a real pleasure. We can only recommend this tour, in 3 hours because there are so many beautiful places to see. As for the car, it is really in its own juice and that is what brings an additional touch to the originality of this lap. The red is just beautiful. Buone vacanze romane!

Me and my partner were debating whether to do this experience but we are so glad that we did. It is a great way to see lots of different places in Rome, especially less known spots where you can have some amazing photos taken. The guide was very friendly and really made the experience for us. The cars are brilliant, very fun to drive & tiny enough to fit through the tight roads. If you are debating doing this experience I would definitely recommend it!
