Full description
After rendezvousing with your guide at the meeting point, you'll head to the Piazza Giuseppe Verdi, the seat of the Teatro Massimo and the third largest theater in Europe — as well as a filming location for the Godfather Part 3. From there, follow your guide to the "Cala", the oldest port of the city, before continuing to the characteristic "Ballarò" markets. Inside these markets you'll have time to buy some souvenirs before you make your way back to your car. Resume your drive and admire the beautiful Cathedral and Palazzo dei Normanni. During the journey, you'll have time to stop to take pictures from the small interior of the cars. Walk around the beautiful gardens of La Zisa, a 12th-century palace built towards the end of the Norman Kingdom. Then, stop at one of the oldest bars in Palermo, where you can sample cannoli or cassata, two of Palermo's most famous treats.  Your experience will involve all of the tastes, colors, and sounds that this region is renowned for, with the added bonus of experiencing it all in a novelty car, the Fiat 500.

This is a brilliant tour to do around Palmermo and a must for anyone looking for something a little different and memorable. The cars are great and Salvo was an excellent guide taking us round to see the sights via the narrow streets of the city. Afterwards we enjoyed a quiet drive out to Mondello to enjoy the sights of this lovely seaside town. If you are comfortable driving with a manual gearbox then book this tour, you won’t regret it.

A wonderful, fun-filled three hours driving a vintage fiat through and up and down Palermo. Salvo was a brilliant host, showing us places we wouldn’t have experience otherwise - the stop off for traditional street food was a particular highlight! He even took time to take photos and videos of us as we were driving.

It was an incredible experience! Exciting to the point of asking my princess to marry me: for both of us it was a unique day !! For one day you will be the attraction of the city putting a smile on all the people who see you! Not to mention Salvatore and Patrizia who not only organized our week but were real friends !!!
