Rome Driving Tour By Vintage Fiat 500

1. Rome Driving Tour By Vintage Fiat 500

Enjoy a panoramic 3-hour sightseeing tour of Rome from behind the wheel of an iconic vintage Fiat 500. Departing from a garage just meters from the Colosseum, you will set off in convoy to see many of the Eternal City’s most historic sights. But you are as much 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 en route, such as the Arch of Constantine and Circus Maximus. See curious sights, such as 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! Your guide will give brief explanations in English or French, before you head off again, 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. Please note: driver must be in possession of a European Union or an International driving license  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. And undoubtedly you’ll feel like a movie star on the red carpet as you turn heads wherever you go. You can choose between 2 different options: a 90-minute tour or a 3-hour tour.

We tremendously enjoyed this private tour. Our guide, Max, was super knowledgeable and entertaining. Even our 9 year old found Max to be informative and engaging during the 3 hours together. The stop at the gelateria certainly was appreciated, too. He took time to understand what we all hoped to get out of the trip. He covered all our wishes and more. Without the golf cart there is no way we could have seen so much in such a short time. The cart also allowed us to escape a sweltering walk around the city. It was super to be able to take the little golf cart down some of the tiny streets and be able to park really close to the sights. We felt safe about Max's driving, too. We covered all the major must-see spots. Thanks for a great tour!

We were going to leave this off the itinerary, but timewise it worked out and very glad it did. The tour was extended by one hour (no problem with that, usually the opposite) and our tour guide (sorry, forgot her name) was excellent. The pace was not too fast, not too slow, but the information was great. There was a mix of history related to the castle and the items we were seeing and experiencing. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire visit.

Mimmo was an excellent guide, focused on our interests and knowledgeable he provided a wonderful tour and made a very pleasureable tour out of a very hot day! The golf cart provided adventure, cool breezes, and we saved on a lot of walking due to ease of parking. We highly recommend Mimmo of Turtle Tour for your guide!

Amazing tour! Excellent guide! Unmissable tour for first timers in Rome! Definitely 5 starts
