Discover Rome and Italy by rental car  

Compare offers of car rental companies in Rome and easily book a rental car online through Car rental Rome. You can discover the city of Rome and its surroundings independently by rental car. With its almost 3 million inhabitants, Rome is not only Italy's most populous city, but also the country's cultural capital - one could almost say: the cultural capital of Europe. In addition to Rome, the small villages of Italy, less than 200 kilometres from the coast and the adjacent sea, are particularly suitable for exploring with a rental car.

Where can I rent a car in Rome?

Choose what suits your plans best: a rental in the city or at one of the two airports. If you arrive by plane at the airport of Fiumicino (FCO) or Ciampino (CIA), you can rent a car directly at the airport at a reasonable price. Learn more about the different categories for rental cars: For example, treat yourself to a convertible and enjoy the Italian Dolce Vita "topless". Experience the price comparison and get a detailed overview with the suppliers and available vehicles!

What is the age limit for a rental car in Italy?

Most cars in Italy can be rented at the age of 21. The renter must be in possession of a driving licence for at least one year. Only for some vehicle groups an age of 25 years is required.

Is there a toll in Italy?

Yes, for cars (Category A) one pays an average of approx. 0.07 EUR toll per kilometre. Toll charges may vary per route segment or operating company. The procedure is quite simple. When you enter the motorway, you will receive a ticket from the vending machine and when you leave the motorway, you will submit your ticket and pay for the section of the road.

You should always have cash ready for payment. Credit card payments are not accepted on all routes.

All the motorways in Sicily and Sardinia as well as the section from Salerno to Reggio Calabria on the A4 are toll-free.

Where can I park my rental car free of charge in Rome and Italy?

In general, the following applies:

  • White curbs: Free parking for three hours with parking disk
  • Blue zones: parking from 08:00 to 20:00 for 1,50 Euro per hour
  • Green parking areas: on weekdays between 8:00 a. m. and 9:30 a. m. a parking ban applies, also between 2:30 p. m. and 4:00 p. m. you are not allowed to park there.
  • Black and yellow stripes: Attention! It is absolutely forbidden to park here!

Even if there are free parking spaces in theory, car parks in Italy and especially Rome are often scarce. Fines are very expensive, and illegal parking in Rome is quickly stopped and your rental car is towed. You can also park your rental car in one of the numerous multi-storey car parks for around 2.20 euros per hour to see the city centre of Rome on foot.

When is a trip to Rome worthwhile?

A trip to Rome is especially worthwhile in autumn and spring, when the city shines in its fresh splendour. In the summer months of July and August it can get unpleasantly hot in Rome. Even the Italians "flee" to the cooler mountain regions. Why don't you do it after them?
