The route picks the highlights that are hard to reach by walking within one day. The driving city tour is a coherent continuation of our walking tour: on two different tours you see different attractions, since the itineraries do not cross.

The Historic Driving Tours is a combination of driving and walking: not to get bored of constant driving we make stops for taking pictures, looking around and strolling along squares, parks, embankments. Moreover, a 1-hour guided boat ride can be reorganized in addition to the tour, to make it even more enjoyable!

The tour starts with meeting your guide at the hotel lobby (or any other place that you specify). The start time is flexible. During the entire tour you will be provided with a private vehicle.
