Top destinations and activities

  • The Colosseum. Perhaps the most famous landmark of the city, the Colosseum is the symbol of the Ancient Rome. Other places of similar historic significance include ruins of the Flavian Palace, the Pantheon, and the Baths of Caracalla.
  • The Churches. Rome has some of the most impressive religious buildings in the world, including the St. Peter’s Basilica, Santa Maria Maggiore, and San Giovanni.
  • The 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. Offering 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’re craving more art, another nearby attraction is the National Gallery of Modern Art.

Traffic and parking

  • 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 speed limit on the Autostrada (toll road) is 130 km/h, reduced to 110 km/h if it’s raining.  The speed limit on highways ranges from 90-110 km/h.  
  • 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 driver’s license and International Driving Permit (if required for you)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.
  • If you need to park in Rome, it’s easiest to park outside of the historic center and walk or take public transport or a taxi.  There are many attended parking garages, or you can look for street parking.  Blue lines on the street indicate pay parking - pay at the machine and display your ticket on your dash.  Or, the parking app indicated on the machine.
  • Be careful not to enter the ZTL (zona traffico limitato - limited traffic zone) if you don’t have permission. 

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 day trips

  • The Beach. Rome is not usually thought of as a beach destination, but the Tyrrhenian Sea is only 24 km (15 mi) from the city center. Lido di Ostia is a fun and popular 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.

  • Tivoli. A scenic town in Lazio Province, Tivoli is one of the best day-trip destinations near Rome. Located in the Sabine Hills and offering impressive views of the land below, Tivoli is best known for its impressive villas. Villa Adriana was once the holiday home of Emperor Hadrian and has been called the largest Roman villa that has survived to the modern period. Meanwhile, some 1,500 years younger, but no less impressive, Villa d’Este attracts visitors with its beautiful fountains, frescoes, and gardens. The drive from Rome takes only about 45 minutes. 

Most popular 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

For more about traveling around Italy with a rental car, check out our complete guide.

  • Naples. Just over two hours south of Rome, Naples is a stunning city that boasts history and cuisine that’s just as impressive as that of the capital city. 

  • Puglia 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 and Syracuse, but the inland areas are just impressive.

Money-saving tips

There are many things you can do to get a good rental deal in Rome:

  • Compare rates of different rental car providers

  • Book your rental car well in advance

  • Know your fuel and mileage requirements

  • Visit during low seasons - outside of summer months and major holidays (like Easter, Ferragosto, Christmas).

  • Explore pickup locations.  A nearby town that’s reached easily by train may have a better rate.

  • Don’t rent a car for time you’ll spend in cities.  It will just sit in a parking lot or garage (and you’ll need to pay for parking!).

  • Look into renting ‘open jaw’ - pick up your car in one destination and drop it off in another.  While you will likely need to pay a supplement for your car rental, you’ll save money on gas and tolls and you’ll save precious vacation time!

  • Visit on the month when the rental prices are the cheapest. According to our data, visiting Rome is the cheapest in February when renting a car is about 43% cheaper than the yearly average.

It was a good trip, use the car to go down south to Calabria. Definitely recommend renting a car as the transit is not as great in the smaller towns and it gives you the flexibility to see other things and adventure. OK Rent-A-Car gives you the cars for a great price so you can do this on your trip

Italy is a great country. We visited The Rome Coliseun that is spectacular. We went to Venecia and had a traditional gondola trip. We went to an awesome city Milano with the latest fashion and great brands. Then we went to Firenze a beautiful city.

Two weeks in Italy was a dream vacation for us -- Rome, Amalfi Coast, Florence, Cinque Terra, Lake Como, Milan. We rented the car as we departed Rome -- no need to drive around there!

My tip is to rent the cars from airport and return to the same or other airport, by doing this you usually get better, newer cars, have more flexibility when picking up and returning the cars and also better service with multi lingual associates.

We rented a Fiat Panda for a one-month Italy visit to 22 cities. The car was very comfortable for two, and doable for four when doing short trips, but not for longer trips. The size of the trunk was perfect for our small luggage and carry-ons and hid all of it well. Nice mount for my iPhone on dash and USB gave me verbal alerts, both were very useful. If you are carrying four people, get a Fiat 500 or bigger. I had to re-learn how to drive a stick shift, which didn't take too long. If you don't have confidence in your ability for stick shifts, upgrade to an automatic transmission.

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.

Assisi, Siena, Tuscan countryside and Cinque Terre. Mostly great roads. Narrow in Cinque Terre. Check parking situation at hotels. Manual transmission rentals are the norm in Europe and half the price of automatic.

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.

If you want to see Italy as it is - you must go with car. It helps you avoid tourist traps and enables you to find small, interesting and atmospheric cities.

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.

Having a car in Rome it’s really good if you intend to have small trips around the city.Make sure your hotel have a garage or a safe parking nearby.

Plan your parking in advance. There is not always parking available near your destinations. Know the color coding of the parking lines and their purpose (white, blue, yellow)

Rent the smallest car you can for Rome and Italy more generally. There are a lot of narrow streets and small parking places. But, otherwise, driving in Italy is great.

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
