The Roman Castles in an authentic Fiat 500
What is more iconically Italian than the Fiat Cinquecento?! Take to the hills south of Rome in this famous Fiat compact and discover why Castelli Romani has been the playground for Rome's rich and famous for centuries...
Millennia of volcanic activity formed the unique topography south of Rome known as Castelli Romani. This picturesque countryside rolling with hills and dotted with lakes is known for its outstanding wines and grand estates where industrialists and emperors, popes and cardinals fled during the holidays to escape the pressures of Roman society and the sweltering Roman heat. And what better way to beat a modern-day retreat along these historic routes than in the coolest of Italian vehicles: the Fiat Cinquecento. It'll give you a taste of what transportation was like in the Italy of the dolce vita days of the 1950s - no AC, no mod cons, but tantissimo style! Our expert guide/driver will do everything to ensure your safety and comfort from start to photo finish, providing a wealth of information on the sights en route: like Frascati, the home of the crisp white wine of the same name and Castel Gandolfo, the pope's summer residence. But where the area's charm truly comes alive is in the small characteristic villages, where we'll stop for a caffé or a gelato.
