PRESS REVIEW

The web says: WOW!!!   

- Lonely Planet: Top 10 classic car rides Fiat 500, Italy There are few cars that make you go ‘aww’ – as you would at a cute animal. The classic Fiat 500 is one of them. The earliest model was nicknamed the ‘Topolino’ or ‘grey mouse’ and was the original small car; between 1957 and 1975 over three million Fiat 500 were produced. In those dolce vita years it was not uncommon to see whole families in them; now it’s more likely to be a cool designer type. Or you, as specialty Italian car-hire companies, like Rome500 in Rome, offer the chance to be elegantly chauffeured by Fiat 500 in Rome. !

- Telegraph Rome: A vintage Fiat 500 tour There a few more memorable ways to see Rome than in a hot pink Fiat 500 !



- HUFFINGTON POST :  What to Do with 18 Hours in Rome?! This tour is really special. I’ve never felt more quickly immersed in a place before, gaining a true appreciation of the city almost instantly. Having a guide like Alvise too, who’s so passionate and joyful about his home, it’s also a treat. It’s so true – happiness is infectious and the key to spread the love while traveling the world !



- SILVERKRIS – SINGAPORE AIRLINES It is not often you feel sorry for someone in a limousine, but I did when we pulled up at a popular Rome sightseeing spot. When another tourist, standing next to her private chauffeur, looked longingly at our hot pink vintage Fiat 500 (known affectionately as Sophia Loren), we all knew what she was thinking: “I wish I had booked that car instead of the limo ”



- ELLE – UK : There's nothing more Roman than driving a classic Fiat 500 round the old streets. Everyone wants a selfie with you and the car, everyone smiles as you drive past, and even those notorious Italian drivers give way. 

- EXPRESS - UK: Vintage cars, lesser-known spots and delicious food: Discover the other face of Rome Audrey Hepburn did it on the back of a Vespa with Gregory Peck in the film Roman Holiday in 1953 – now, 60 years later, I’m doing it in a tiny, classic Fiat Cinquecento: whizzing around the cobbled streets that curve around the Coliseum, oblivious to the admiring honks of the crazy Italian drivers who surround me.  

- MAIL-ON-LINE Forget Minis! Whizz around Rome in a vintage Fiat for a taste of real The Italian Job (and then relax in a rooftop Jacuzzi) ”
 

- MARIE CLAIRE:  Easy Escapes: Rome by classic car You really must… There’s so much to see, from the Colosseum to the cobbled streets of Trastevere, you need a way to get around that’s small, swift and stylish. Rome 500 Experience (rome500exp.com) offers fun tours that use a fleet of tiny Fiat Cinquecentos from the 1960s. Painted in beautiful vintage colours and smelling of leather and engine oil, they’re small enough to zip round the back-alleys and cobbled streets, so you’re not lumbering around like the armies of tourists in their huge coaches. ” 


- FODOR’S:  7 Unique Tours of Rome Get behind the wheel of this happy little car—or be chauffeured, if you prefer. Choose your favorite classic '60s or '70s model, pop open the sunroof, and head out on a guided convoy-style tour featuring piped-in commentary from the tour leader as you circuit Rome, incorporating short stops at key sights.
