Rome Vintage Fiat 500 Self-Drive Tour by Convoy
After a safety briefing to help you get to grips with the car’s manual controls, climb into the driver's seat and prepare to begin your tour of Rome’s many highlights. Line up behind your guide’s vehicle, and then make your way out of the garage and onto the Eternal City’s quieter roads, traveling in a kaleidoscopic convoy.
Push back the soft-top roof and feel the sun on your face and the breeze in your hair as you cruise at a leisurely pace through Rome’s pretty streets. See showstoppers such as the Colosseum, Arch of Constantine, the Mouth of Truth and Circus Maximus, and stop from time to time for photos and to learn about the sites' fascinating histories from your guide.
You’ll also travel off the beaten path, driving along streets that may be inaccessible to larger vehicles, and taking in gems such as the charming Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta (Piazza of the Knights of Malta), the Garden of the Oranges, the Aventine Keyhole and the vibrant Trastevere neighborhood.
During your tour, enjoy a break for a delicious Italian coffee or a refreshing gelato (own expense). After around three hours, your tour concludes back at the original start point.
Please note: Fiat 500s are small compared to most of today’s cars, so with comfort in mind, bookings are only accepted for a maximum of three adults, or two adults and two children, per car. Should your group be larger, no worries — up to 10 people can book, and each group will be divided into separate cars.

One of the best tours you can take in Rome.
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.
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.
