Old cities tend to have more narrow roads than their contemporaries, so a compact car is a smart way to get to explore nooks or crannies, which may be off limits to larger vehicles, and is easier to handle where parking is concerned. Large parties will be more comfortable in an intermediate, SUV or people carrier, so choose the option which works best for all concerned.
