Being students we couldn’t afford much, but hiring a car from the Mini class was just within our means. It was an easy to drive, very reasonably priced Smart For two. We had a great time in Rome and thanks to our hire car we got to see and do far more than we thought we’d be able to do on our holiday budget.
