Hiring a car in Rome
At the centre of Italy, this charming city will steal your heart. With history dating as far back the 9th century at the time of the Roman Empire, the city set the foundations to the western world and is certainly not in short supply of fantastic architecture and ruins which can’t be found in any other city on the planet.
Rome oozes vibrancy, with buzzing restaurants, cafes and bars located all over the city, spilling out into the streets. A trip wouldn’t be complete without tasting the great Italian cuisine of gelato, Italian coffee and the array of pasta and pizza dishes.
The city also has a huge arts and culture scene with works dating back thousands of years, telling stories of Rome’s fascinating past. Most famous of all you will find the great Michelangelo’s ‘The Creation of Adam’ located on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, among many other Renaissance style creations.
What you need to know
Although roads can be crowded and slightly hectic in the centre of Rome in peak hours, with summer temperatures reaching well above 30C and with tourist attractions dotted miles apart from each other, travelling by car is the most convenient form of transport.
There are taxis zooming around the city, but tourists must be quick in flagging them down, and, depending on where you are going, they can be expensive.
