After a safety briefing to help you get to grips with the cars manual controls, climb into the driver's seat and prepare to begin your tour of Romes many highlights.

  • Very fun and unique experience in Rome. Got to see some sites and neighbourhoods that are a bit off the beaten path. Jack was a wonderful and friendly guide. The Roman traffic can definitely live up to its chaotic reputation, so you shouldn't sign up for this is you are a timid driver.

  • By far this was the highlight of my holiday. We had Franco as our tour guide who spoke French and English. He was very accommodating. We drove on the cobble stone roads in a 57 fiat 500. If you love cars then this is a must. Make sure to ask for Franco. I will do this again when I'm in Rome.

  • By far, this Fiat tour was the highlight of our Rome trip! If you can drive a stick - you must take this tour.

  • The tour was amazing. We got to see all the main sites and a lot of out of the way places too. Well worth the money and the guide was excellent.

  • This was an exceptional tour. Went to very unique places. Everyone was jealous of my pictures on Facebook. Highly recommended

  • My wife and I had a wonderful time on this tour, but there is a story.... We had been in Rome for 3 days before we took this tour, lots of walking an cabs. When we arrived for the self-drive tour, the guide told us that the other couples had cancelled and it was just us and him. He asked what we would like to do, drive or have him drive us. I quickly said that he could drive and I would sit I the back seat. What a relief. If you have ever seen the traffic in Rome you would understand my answer. To drive a 1957 Fiat 500 with a 1957 gearbox on hills and cobblestone in traffic so fast and tight and scooter-filled that it would make a Chicago cab driver cry, all while keeping up with another car is a very tall order. Our guide, however, was a great guy and made the tour a great success. He gave meaningful insight into the various stops along the route, and even added an unscheduled stop at Trevi Fountain. With a group of adventurous drivers, I can see where this tour would be a blast.

  • Excellent time great guide !!!

  • The MOST fun I've EVER had!!!

  • The MOST fun I have EVER had!!!!!

  • Excellent tour. We met Paolo at the garage and after a brief explanation got started on our customized tour right away. This was so much fun and Paolo made it so easy to navigate the streets of Rome. We visited sites we never even knew existed. Paolo was always great to make sure he captured our memories by taking many pictures of us at all the stops. The cars are a blast from the past and garner a lot of attention on the roads of Rome with many locals and tourists snapping pictures of us as we drove through the streets and neighborhoods. A wonderful stop along the way for gelato and tea at a local cafe was a very nice break. We drove a 1971 Fiat 500 Abarth convertible in bright yellow, it was fantastic. I would not leave Rome without taking this tour. As an added bonus we accidently left our umbrella in the car and Paolo dropped it off at our hotel with a nice hand written note after we reached out to him by email to check the car. Truly a great experience. Thank you Paolo for showing us Rome.
