You’ll cruise past famous landmarks like the Colosseum and the Arch of Constantine, stopping occasionally for photo opportunities and the obligatory cappuccino.

During a company week-end trip, we booked a tour with Rome 500 EXP to make a 17 car convoy. All the participants really enjoyed it, from driving, to exploring the city and the leader comments.
Thank you very much Alvise and the team to make this activity possible for such a big amount of people! Will definitely do it again and advise it to my customers.

What an experience! Definitely 1 of the highlights of our trip to Rome and a must do activity!

We were greeted by Alex who showed us around the car and how it works (it is old so slightly different to driving a modern car) and put us at ease with how the tour will operate driving around Rome. We were also greeted by Fernando who would follow the convoy via a Moped and would assist with any issues you have including if you stall or if cars try to push into the convoy, he would race ahead and block them. This meant that you do
Not have to panic or worry at all about losing the convoy or getting lost.

The cars are manual so if you can drive a manual (stick), you will have no issues. The way the gears work are very 1950s but after you have changed gear once or twice it becomes natural.

The drive was amazing and extremely fun! Alex lead the convoy and ensured any manoeuvres he did we could all do without losing the convoy (examples including turning onto a road or going through traffic lights)

We visited numerous sites that gave us amazing views of the city as well as some historical sites that you wouldn’t visit if you had to make your own way. The highlight for me was the keyhole where you can see 3 countries at once along with the drive around the colosseum!

Everyone on our tour loved it and I was sad when it was over. I can’t stress enough how much fun this was and it was worth every penny!

Thanks to Alex and Fernando for giving us an experience of a lifetime that I will never forget

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.

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!

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!

The tour was the highlight of our trip!
Mimmo was very welcoming and showed us how to work the car. Driving was easy and not stressful and Mimmo always stayed close by. He took us to Rome’s famous sights, but also hidden gems! Mimmo’s knowledge of Rome was great and we learnt lots about the city. We stopped for a lovely slice of pizza at a local’s cafe. Mimmo gave us a walki talkie so it was easy to communicate. The fiat was a dream and Mimmo took lots of photos for us to remember the experience!
Would 100% recommend booking this trip for a unique way to see 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.

This was a great experience. A completely different way to visit all the landmarks in Rome. One of the best part was our tour guide Alexis, he was super professional in all ways, showed us a lot of new and interesting places you will not usually go on regular tours, besides that he was a great photographer for us. Lol. In general a great tour with a great guide. We will recommend to everybody. Worth it!!!
Thanks a lot!!!

Incredible. All 4 of us (kids aged 14 and 11) were laughing and smiling for 3 hours straight. We saw lots of Rome that would have been otherwise inaccessible. Our little pink Fiat was the star of the show everywhere we stopped. Mimo and Eduardo were great. An absolute riot. Don’t hesitate. (But make sure you are comfortable driving a manual car!)

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!
