Rome on Vintage Wheels

What could possibly be more fantastic than zipping through the streets of Rome on a Vespa scooter? After all, you’ve seen it done in many a Hollywood film, and it looks so easy. As you might expect, however, the reality is a little different than what you’ve seen in the movies.

Rome’s traffic is notoriously horrendous, and it’s even more so when you aren’t familiar with the city or with Italian driving laws. Having your own set of wheels to get around may be advantageous in some cities, but in Rome it’ll cause more headaches than it’s worth. Still, it’s hard to beat the romantic notion of seeing the Eternal City from the back of a quintessentially Italian scooter - so why not let someone else do the driving?

Instead of taking a simple walking tour of the city, you can sign up to tour Rome on a Vespa or even a vintage Fiat 500. With the Vespa, you can relax completely while you ride on the back and your professional private guide handles the navigation. You’ll get to actually look around at the sights, which would be much more difficult while actually driving.

If you prefer to have your motorized vehicles be more surrounding, then a private tour of Rome in a vintage Fiat 500 is an excellent option. These adorable little cars haven’t disappeared from Italy’s streets, so you’ll see them throughout the country - and having a chance to see Rome from inside one of them will allow you to feel like part of the scenery while still taking it all in.

Letting someone else do the driving means you don’t need to concern yourself with navigation, traffic or parking - you just get to enjoy the exhilaration of a wind-in-your-hair experience. You never know, you might just end up in someone else’s vacation photos for looking so very Italian!
