With car hire Rome, the primary renter should be at least 21 years of age with a valid drivers license, that has been held for the minimum period of 12 months. It is recommended to have an International Driving Permit when visiting Rome. Renters below the age of 25 should be aware of possible higher rental fees due to the ‘young driver’ charges. With most of the car rentals based in Fiumicino, not all of the vehicles are available to a younger driver.

Driving in Italy can be frustrating. The streets are small, confusing, and not well built for heavy traffic. Traffic jams are frequent. This is typical of Italy’s large historical cities. Seatbelts should always be worn, and keep a close eye on the courageous scooter-drivers!

Find out from your hotel if it has parking areas available if you are planning to rent a car in Rome. Sometimes the hotel parking is at adjacent private garages. These are known as ‘parcheggio convenzionato’. Some car parks are available, for example, the Via Gregorio VII. There is another area at the entrance to the Stazione San Pietro train station. In central Rome there are few parking options and it may be more convenient to use the ATAC public buses in this area. Some of the popular attractions are mostly within walking distance of each other, and it’s far nicer to walk, than to struggle with finding a parking space.

The following is a list of the speed limits in Italy:

  • Open Roads – 90 kph / 55 mph
  • Towns and residential areas – 50 kph / 30 mph
  • Motorways or highways – 130 kph / 80 mph

Drivers can fill up their cars with petrol from the self-service stations that are open 24 hours a day. They are self-service, but you may find unofficial persons trying to help in order to get a tip!

Driving a rented car in the central city may be difficult, but it is a practical way to get around and see the best Rome has to offer. To ensure that your ideal vehicle is available, it is advisable to book in advance.

What clients of car hire Rome with italianairportguide.com say:

There was such a great car rental choice when we flew to Rome. We wanted a car suitable for a family holiday, with plenty of space for luggage and the kids’ toys. That’s exactly what we got. Hiring a car was so much better than struggling with the kids on public transport. Free mileage, breakdown assistance and affordable sat nav were part of the rental package, so we had peace of mind as well.
