  • Rome Ciampino Airport: Rome’s second airport is currently served by only two airlines, Ryanair and Wizz Air, but they offer flights to and from more than 40 different destinations.
  • Naples Airport: Flying to the large and modern Naples Airport is another good way to reach Rome as it is only 225 km (140 mi) away.
  • By rail: If you’re arriving in Rome by train, you can conveniently pick up a rental car at the Rome Termini Railway Station.

Useful city facts

  • The metropolitan population of Rome is more than 4,000,000 people, making it one of the largest capitals in Europe.
  • The warmest month is Rome is August when the average temperature is 24.5 °C (76.1 °F). Even during the winter months the average temperature rarely drops below 5 °C (41 °F).

Top destinations and activities

  • Colosseum. Perhaps the most famous landmark of the city, Colosseum is the symbol of the Ancient Rome. Other places of similar historic significance include ruins of the Flavian Palace, Pantheon, and the Baths of Caracalla.
  • The basilicas. Rome has some of the most impressive religious buildings in the world, including the St. Peter’s Basilica, Santa Maria Maggiore, and San Giovanni.
  • Vatican Museums. The Vatican City, an independent city-state completely surrounded by Rome, is one of the most popular attractions for visitors to the Eternal City. More than just a chance of catching a glimpse of the pope, the Holy See is also home to many fascinating museums. Attractions include the stunning Sistine Chapel and Raphael Rooms, but also the Vatican Historical Museum and Collection of Modern Religious Art.
  • National Etruscan Museum. Predating even the Latin-speaking Ancient Romans, Etruscans were a mysterious and highly influential culture that inhabited early Rome. While not much is known about them — even their language has not been deciphered — they left behind a vast amount of fascinating art. Many of the vases, sarcophagi, and inscribed golden plates can now be seen in the Etruscan Museum located inside the beautiful Villa Giulia building.
  • Galleria Borghese. Located just a stone’s throw away from the Etruscan Museum, the Borghese Gallery is one of the many impressive art spaces of Rome. The museum has an impressive collection of artworks, not least by such masters as Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio, and Rubens. If you crave something more challenging after taking in all the classical art, another nearby attraction is the National Gallery of Modern Art.

Traffic and parking tips

  • The speed limit in cities is 50 km/h, although in certain areas the speed limit may be reduced to 30 km/h. 
  • Main highways are limited to 130 km/h, non-major highways to 110 km/h, and local roads to 90 km/h. During the rain the limits are respectively lowered to 110 km/h, 100 km/h, and 80 km/h. The general speed limit is lowered to 50 km/h during heavy fog or other cases of bad visibility.
  • The insurance and car documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
  • If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
  • The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.00% for novice drivers. Being over the allowed limit can result in hefty fines and even imprisonment. 
  • The emergency number, like elsewhere in the EU, is 112.

Toll roads

There are numerous toll roads in Italy. The exact fee depends on the route of your choice and the type of vehicle. See the official Italian toll road website for more information. Use the website’s toll road calculator to find out exactly how much you’ll have to pay for using the toll roads on your planned route.

Ideas for a day-trip

  • The beach. Rome is not usually thought of as a beach destination, but the Tyrrhenian Sea is just about 24 km (15 mi) from the city center. Lido di Ostia is a fun and popular if occasionally overcrowded destination, and Santa Marinella further to the north and Anzio to the south offer good alternatives.
  • Nature areas. The Marcigliana Nature Reserve is just east of the city, the Bracciano Martignano Nature Park is a bit further north, and even the mountainous and wild Monti Navegna and Cervia Nature Reserve can be reached in an hour and a half.

Most popular rental types and cars

The most popular rental car in Italy is the Fiat Panda, but travelers also love the Ford Fiesta and the Fiat 500. The most popular rental car type is economy, followed by mini and compact.

Further destinations

  • Naples. Just a bit over two hours drive south, Naples is a stunning city that boasts history and cuisine that’s just as impressive as that of the capital city. 
  • Apulia and Calabria. Even further south than Naples, these two regions are yet to be fully discovered by international tourists but offer hospitality, beautiful scenery, and character in abundance. 
  • Sicily. Italy’s largest island is famous for its beautiful beaches and old cities like Palermo, but the inland areas are just impressive and can be explored for days and weeks.

I did not get the car I reserved. It was in terrible condition, damaged upholstery, with dozens of scratches and dents It’s was 6500 kilometers overdue for service. Which resulted in warning lights on the dashboard. The service was very good but the car was in horrible condition. They had the card I reserved and still provided a substitute.

The staff were very nice and accommodating. The shuttle to the cars was not easy to find, nor would the driver take 4 people so it made for two trips - he said five minutes before another van but of course, it was 20 minutes or more delay.
