The Roman Hills Grand Tour

Enjoy one of the Top 10 fun things to do in Rome!

Fancy the FIAT 500 Vintage Grand Tour to the Roman Hills, a self drive in convoy tour at less than 30Km from Rome. Slow down, relax and enjoy a slow journey towards the winding roads of the Roman countryside. Hear the singing of the crickets, smell the freshly-cut hay drifting in through the open roof top of your Vintage FIAT 500.

Take-off on an amazing journey through the Roman hills and deep blue volcanic lakes featuring breathtaking views of the region.

Catch a glimpse of the lakes while you meander through the narrow streets of the villages of Nemi and Castel Gandolfo, the summer residence of the Pope.

Feast your eyes on amazing blue volcanic lakes located in the heart of the Roman countryside and live a journey far from Rome’s busy roads.

Drive yourself a colourful Fiat 500 vintage car, relax and admire the views as you drive through the tree-lined roads around the lakes. A stop for a cappuccino or your favourite ‘gelato’ is planned during the trip.

A trip full of colours and emotions.
