Although travelling around in the Eternal City by hire car is going to be less of a pleasure and more of an adventure thanks to the heavy traffic, there is so much to see in and around Rome that car rental Ciampino Airport is probably still the best solution, especially during a longer holiday or business trip. From the Colosseum to the Roman Forum, from the Piazza Navona to the Pantheon, from the Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II to the Piazza del Popolo, Rome’s ancient monuments and architectural treasures are too numerous to visit on foot and too spread out across the city to be visited by public transport alone.

Buses typically run from ca. 5.30 am until midnight, although there are some night services. The metro lines A and B are the main central Rome routes and bus lines 40N as well as 55N follow them. Tram services also operate within the city.

From Michelangelo’s beautifully painted ceiling in the Sistine Chapel to the gorgeous Renaissance architecture of the Tempietto, the San Pietro temple in Montorio, from Vatican City in central Rome to the Cinecittà Studios, where iconic masterpieces like Quo Vadis, Ben Hur, La Dolce Vita and Roman Holiday were produced – Rome has such a wealth of art treasures, ancient monuments, natural beauty, fashion, culture and world heritage to offer, a weekend break simply won’t do this great city justice. There are at least 900 churches, basilicas and cathedrals for a start!

Located in the Lazio region of Italy, Rome on the River Tiber is surrounded by seven famous hills, the Aventine Hill, the Capitoline Hill, the Caelian Hill, the Esquiline Hill, the Palatine Hill, the Quirinal Hill and the Viminal Hill, from where the best views over the city can be enjoyed. With car hire Ciampino Airport it’s just a 24 km journey to the coast, where the Tyrrhenian seashore beckons.

Rome’s climate is Mediterranean, mild and humid in winter, but hot and dry during summer, when thousands of tourists flock to the city and Romans take to the road to escape the city for the coastal resorts in August.

For respite from the heat and tourist crowds, why not pack a picnic and head for one of the many wonderful parks? Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Doria Pamphili are well worth visiting for their splendid 19th century architecture and landscaped gardens. Some villas on Gianicolo Hill have shaded areas for walking and playgrounds for children, like Villa Sciarra for example.

The Appian Way Regional Park and Pineto Regional Park, the nature reserves at Tenuta di Castelporziano and Marcigliana are also worth a trip by hire car.
