Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your tour starts in central Rome, where you’ll meet your guide and be paired with your vintage candy-colored Fiat 500, also known as a Cinquecento. Introduced in the 1950s as a fashionable, affordable mode of transport, the Fiat 500 continues to evoke thoughts of dreamy days cruising around Italy in style.

Hop behind the wheel, and listen to a quick briefing about safety and the nuances of operating the Fiat’s manual controls. Then take off in a colorful caravan, following your guide’s car along some of Rome’s quieter roads. Open the soft-top roof to enjoy the sun and fresh air as you drive down charming streets to see some of Rome's top landmarks, like Circus Maximus, the Colosseum, Arch of Constantine and the Mouth of Truth. Take breaks occasionally for photo ops and to hear interesting tidbits about the city from your guide.

In addition to recognizable attractions, venture to lesser-known sights along roads that may be inaccessible to bigger vehicles. Such gems may include the Garden of Oranges, Aventine Keyhole, Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta (Piazza of the Knights of Malta) and the lively Trastevere neighborhood. You’ll also stop for gelato or coffee (own expense) before your tour ends upon return to the starting point.

Please note: The Fiat 500 is small in comparison to most modern-day cars, so with comfort in mind, bookings are allowed for a maximum of three adults per car (or two adults and two children). If you have a bigger group, that’s okay! Up to 10 people can book at a time, and you’ll be split into separate Fiats.
