    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.

    Ideas for a day-trip

    • Vatican City. Surrounded by Rome from all sides, the Holy See is home to religious landmarks like Sistine Chapel, but it also has many interesting museums like the Gregorian Egyptian Museum with artifacts from Ancient Egypt, the Pio-Clementino Museum with its unique galleries, and the Pinacoteca which has works of da Vinci, Giotto, Caravaggio, Raphael, and many others.
    • 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

    • 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 be just impressive and can be explored for days and weeks.

    Driving in Rome looks mad. We avoided it by hiring a car at the airport then driving out to the hills. There are lovely hilltop villages only an hour or so northeast of Rome.

    We hired a car to explorer areas outside of Rome, driving in Italy can be hectic and unstructured, this is exaggerated in Rome itself and is not recommended in a rental unless you are a very confident and capable driver.

    Driving in Rome is A nice precursor to driving in Naples in the Almalfi coast. Once you warm up in Rome and head that way, coming back to Rome is a breeze

    Rome and the surrounding area area fantastic, must see destination. Definitely recommend exploring outside of the popular tourist areas, where you'll find the people much friendlier, and the prices astonishingly cheaper. :D
