Departing from a garage just meters from the Colosseum, you will set off in convoy to see many of the Eternal City’s most historic sights. But you are as much an attraction as the Roman Forum and narrow streets of Trastevere from the seat of your candy-colored car. Stop from time-to-time to take pictures of sites en route, such as the Arch of Constantine and Circus Maximus. See curious sights, such as the secret keyhole of Aventine Hill, and the charming Piazza dei Cavalieri di Malta (Piazza of the Knights of Malta). Drive along the Lungotevere, following the banks of the River Tiber. And cross into Trastevere, where the tight streets are a breeze for vehicles as small as the Fiat 500! Your guide will give brief explanations in English or French, before you head off again, never going...

It was a fantastic experience. My guide (Memmo)told me exciting things about Rome and we visited many different places. Especially some that are not known to most tourists. Best excursion during my stay in Rome.

Very knowledgeable, patient guide (David). He did a great job, described everything, very detailed. He was keeping it entertaining as well. I highly recommend the tour and the guide! I loved it!

Very convenient for getting around and visiting Rome. Nevertheless, with the sanitary restrictions, the Vatican skip-the-line ticket did not serve us. Looking forward, Joffrey

Michaela was a great tour guide - best tour I did in Rom
