About
Skip seeing Rome from the back of a tour bus and, instead, cruise the city’s charming cobblestone streets in a vintage Fiat 500 on this self-driving sightseeing tour. Pass by famous city sights as well as lesser-known gems while following a guide in your own candy-colored vintage car. You’ll cruise past famous landmarks like the Colosseum and the Arch of Constantine, stopping occasionally for photo opportunities and the obligatory cappuccino.

Fiat 500 marvelous-informative tour
Aug 2021 • Couples
I have no words for this. If you have the opportunity, do it. Its one in lifetime experience due to the fact that not only you learn a lot about the history of Rome, but also you have the opportunity to drive a fiat 500 antique. We booked for 7p.m in the evening, so we started with daylight, witnessed a majestic sunset at the garden of oranges and drove through ancient Rome that was lighted during night. We were very pleased with Emanuele, the smiley tour guy, because he just gave us every information we asked about Rome. Except of that, he also took some photos of us in different spots that only locals could know. Needless to say that Emanuele is a guy that we will stay in touch and we hope him the best. He is a professional. Just to mention that driving an old fiat 500 is easy, so dont be afraid to try it. Greetings from Greece.

One of the coolest expieriences of my life! We enjoyed a three hour guided tour with a pink Fiat 500 and a great guide (Mimmo) whose English was excellent. We drove around in Rome and saw a lot of great places. Thank you also for the photos you took! Very recommended! Mille grazie!

No better way to see Rome
Sep 2020
We booked a self-drive tour of Rome in convoy but because of Covid-19 it ended up being just two cars with ourselves and our guide Alessio. The experience was amazing with it being the highlight of our trip!

Alessio was fantastic, taking us to parts of Rome that we might not otherwise have visited and giving us a real local insight into the city that he so clearly loves!

Driving the fiat 500 was a great way to feel like a roman for a few hours and we had plenty of people chatting to us and admiring the car as we drove.

Highly recommend!

Best Fiat 500 tour in Rome
Make sure you book this as a part of your Rome visit, it was certainly one of our highlights. The owner took us out and was charming, friendly and so enthusiastic. We saw places we would of never found without him. My son drove the car which was relatively easy and it was a bit of a squash for the 3 of us but it was really a lovely way to see Rome. We stumbled upon a wedding in progress so we got some really beautiful extra photos and memories. We stopped at a stunning café for a coffee and pastries. Our convoy was only 3 cars long so it was easy to keep up, highly recommend this.

A tour to remember
May 2019
In New Zealand we call the Fiat 500 car a Bambino, because it is small. And it was a delight to zip around Rome in the bright pink 'Sophia Loren', following our guide. In our 3 hours we visited ancient sites, including Aventine Hill and the Pyramid of Caius Cestius. Our guide, Alvise, was both humorous and informative. We went on this tour in 2019, and a year later still hold it as one of our best travel memories in beautiful Italy.

Incredible addition to our Roman Holiday!
Feb 2020
Such an incredible experience and what an addition to a Roman Holiday! Manu was a fantastic tour guide and we got to see some attractions off the beaten track that we would have missed otherwise. The cars themselves are the best, they're a lot of fun to drive and they look great. I was nervous beforehand having seen how busy the roads in Rome are but I'm so glad I went for it anyway. I would highly recommend to anybody visiting Rome looking for an unforgettable experience!

Perfect experience and way to see Rome!
Mar 2020 • Couples
While this may initially appear pricey I can assure you that having completed the tour it is just so much fun whizzing about in Rome in a classic Fiat 500 and also ended up in places and with explanations that we would not have seen or heard about otherwise. The guide was an absolute joy, friendly and passionate - the true epitomy of a man who loves his job! His enthusiasm for Rome and for your day out was unrivalled! He was not just going through the motions he wanted us to love Rome and it’s treasures as much as he clearly does.

You should note that the Fiat 500 is a manual drive but this wasnt a problem for us having learnt to drive and owned manual cars most of our lives.

The driving on Rome’s roads felt really safe and the guide drove perfectly to keep us together with him, no danger of ever being lost.

And the tour itself went that bit further out (garden of oranges and knights of Malta) then we might naturally have thought about. And driving through the streets of Rome that are barely walkable because you are in a Fiat 500 is a true thrill.

Would happily do this trip again as it was just a lot of fun!

Best tour of Rome ever. Super fun.
Dec 2019 • Family
We had a great time with Emanuele exploring the city areas with the Fiat. It was fun to drive the cars and we laughed a lot and saw some beautiful sites and he took us to a great stop of coffee and pastries. We have had a lot of tours around they world and this one stands out as the most fun time. It was worth every penny. Thank you Emanuele for your good humor and disposition we all really enjoyed the afternoon.
