Great emperors and popes have ruled the Western world from their seat of power in Rome, and now you can walk in their footsteps (with only slightly less pomp).
Rome overflows with priceless treasures, which is both a blessing and a curse. You could spend your entire trip behind the wheel of your Rome car hire zipping from one historic masterpiece to the next, but we suggest grabbing a seat at a sidewalk café, sipping an amazing cappuccino, and letting the wonders of the city come to you.
Car hire in Rome is a good idea when it’s time to get outside the city centre, but your own two feet can get you around some of its best parts. Wander down rambling alleyways and into sweeping piazzas so you can really get a feel for La Dolce Vita, then rest up in accommodation in Rome so you’ll be refreshed for your next adventure.
Hear the ancient roar of the lions from the ruins of the Colosseum, envy the fashionable uniforms of the Vatican guards, and learn that your art history books could never compare to the real thing at the Sistine Chapel.
Honestly, Rome contains so many goodies, that if you wore a blindfold, you’d probably bump into a dozen historical treasures before a policeperson asked what the heck you were doing.
Rome is great, but if your social media friends are begging you to bring it down a notch on the photo uploads, it might be time to take a breather. Just 26km from downtown Rome is Ostia, with its refreshing sea air and not-so-refreshing (but often preferred) partying.
Feeling naturalistic? Steer your Rome car rental 31km east on a day trip to Tivoli and enjoy the beautiful terraced gardens of the Villa d’Este.
