Excellent attitudes about safety, great fun driving old fiats with no power steering and chugging uphill, zooming downhill in itslian traffic. Bought flower soap in little village overlooking city, toured monastry, super views. Jimmy is knowledgable guide! It was too short.

Our guide Salvo is extremely knowledgeable about the history and architecture of the area and he gave us a very entertaining tour. The colorful vintage Fiats are adorable. The tour includes film sites for The Godfather movies but covers much, much more. Highly recommended.
