Photo of the Week: Italian Streets

Classic Fiats are the car of choice for many Italians.

Old Fiats add a dash of class among the old brick streets of Florence. Small and compact, Fiats are able to weave in and out of traffic with the same ease as a moped or bicycle making them a favorite among Italian drivers. Get behind the wheel of a vintage Fiat, an icon of Italy, and putter around the Tuscan countryside.
