Car Rental, Driving and Parking in Rome
As with many of Italy's largest and most historic cities, the roads of Rome were not built for heavy traffic and so jams are frequent and often frustrating, especially for local Italian drivers.
Parking spaces can be difficult to find in central Rome, and also expensive, so for those planning to drive around the city, it is worth finding a hotel with its own car park. Many hotels offer parking spaces at adjacent private garages, being known as 'parcheggio convenzionato'. Car parks are also located at the Terminal Gianicolo next to the Via Gregorio VII, and at the entrance to the Stazione San Pietro train station.
