Mercedes E Class
The Mercedes E Class is a comfortable
sedan which, Mercedes says, can accommodate four
passengers plus driver. In reality, it's only
comfortable for 3 people plus driver The trunk is
fairly large, but in the past there have been cases in
which the luggage of 3 people hardly fitted in it. So
unless the group of 4 includes at least one child, it is
preferable to you the minivan to tour with 4 people.
Obviously the cars is equipped with air conditioning,
but what people really like in this car is it's double
glass roof through which one can see all around and on
above when sightseeing.
The Mercedes "Vito" is a very comfortable
and modern minivan. It can accommodate 8 passengers plus
driver, but you cannot exaggerate with luggage. It has a
triple sun roof with is very handy when sightseeing.
Separate air conditioning, front and back, provides good
comfort to all the passengers. What makes minivans
really good for sightseeing is that you sit up, higher
than a regular car, and you can see over the top of the
other cars or the parapets of bridges and such. One
thing I have to say though, is that the 8th passenger
doesn't have a whole lot of room.
The Electric Golf
The golf cart is the best
vehicle for touring around Rome! I can take
you anywhere in this and stay off the main
streets with all the traffic. Driving around
Rome in a golf cart one can reach the main
attractions driving through the evocative
streets of the old city, avoiding most of
the main streets crowded by all kinds of
noisy and smelly vehicles. You can stop for
a great ice cream at a little out-of-the-way
place instead of spending a fortune and buy
crap from vendors outside the Colosseum.
Enjoy having your lunch at an authentic
little “trattoria” with the locals, instead
of the touristy restaurants where they serve
you frozen food.
Absolutely the best way to
tour of Rome for the disabled or anyone with
walking problems, but also the most fun for
