Discover Rome and Italy by hired car

Compare offers of car hire companies in Rome and easily book a hired car online through Car hire Rome. You can discover the city of Rome and its surroundings independently by hired 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 hired car.

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.

Driveboo tip:

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.

Here you can park your hired 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 hired car is towed. You can also park your hired 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.

What are the speed limits in Italy?
