As the streets in Rome are very narrow and parking lots are hard to find, opt for a smaller car like a Mini or a Fiat 500. If you want to explore the surrounding countryside and park your car outside the city, an SUV is a good choice, as Italian country roads can have potholes.
Speed limits, unless otherwise indicated, are 31 mph (50 kph) in residential areas, 68 mph (110 kph) on countryside highways and 80 mph (130 kph) on freeways. Always adhere to the speed limits as the Italian police are very strict with speed regulation and fines can be high. Speed cameras are also commonly used in Italy.
Unless your hotel has a parking space included, it is not wise to attempt finding a parking space in the city, as they are hard to find and are often reserved for locals. Choose a P+R outside the center and close to a metro station, such as the P+R Batistini, P+R Valle Aurelio, or the P+R Laurentina. With only around €2 ($2.25) per 12 hours, they are also a priceworthy option. Parking lots close to the Old Town are also a possibility, but, with a rate of up to €40 ($45) per day, are a rather expensive solution.

The best places to pick up a car hire in Rome are typically located around major transport centres. Rome’s two international airports offer easy convenience when visiting by plane, but you can also find clusters of providers elsewhere including Europcar and SIXT near Rome Termini, the city’s central railway terminal. Rome Ostiense and Rome Tiburtina are other main stations with providers in the vicinity.
Driving your cheap car hire in Rome up the Tyrrhenian coast via E80 towards Florence is lengthy compared to more direct routes, but the scenic rewards on both sides of the vehicle are truly spectacular. We also recommend driving east via A1/E45/E842 towards Bari on the Adriatic coast to enjoy some of the best seafood and sunshine anywhere in Italy.

Pros:Location in terminal.
Cons:Horrific experience with Hertz in Rome Fiumicino. Rented a car that had a tire blown as soon as I started driving it. Called the Hertz location in Fiumicino and no answer. Called multiple times, but no answer. Had to call the US number only to get transferred to Road Side assistance for Canada? Ended up changing the tire myself then drove to my hotel. Kept calling Hertz in Rome (total of 8 times that day) but no answer. Tried calling Naples (no answer), Milano (no answer) and Salerno (answered but told me I wasn't covered because Hertz had franchised their business in Italy?). Suggested I pay for the flat myself and be on my way. In order to salvage my trip, I did just that. Only to find that the tire had prior damage in two places and it was unlikely that it could withstand another "patch" job. Nevertheless, I paid the fee for just that and tried to get ahold of Rome Hertz another 14 times over 4 days. No answer! The car sat parked because the newly patched tire went flat again! Seriously, I can't make this stuff up. Called the US again without help as they simply said I needed to deal directly with Rome Hertz only. I used Twitter to get a road side assistance number for Italy and the towed the car finally, while I had 5 days left on my rental. They refused to take me to Hertz to get a replacement saying I needed to pay a taxi for that (I was 60 miles away from the nearest location). I simply told them to keep the car and I would deal with it upon my return to Rome via another means. When I got to Rome, they had the nerve to charge me for a one way drop off charge in addition to my full contracted rate. NEVER AGAIN WILL I RENT FROM HERTZ/DOLLAR/THRIFY.
Pros:Easy pickup and drop off next to airport. Convenient key drop.
Pros:Car was new and clean. Good people .next time I will go and rental a car there excelente.10
Cons:The they close the rental office they should be open 24/7 or maybe they are open 24/7 but this was my first time in Europe.
Pros:Fantastic car. Comfortable and drove well. New too.
Cons:Having to wait 2 hours in Rome to check-in with our reservation. A line ordering system that did not make any sense (draw a number for two other companies but not Dollar). Then, stand around because there was only standing room only. Really not efficient.
Pros:Car was virtually new and great for our vacation.
Cons:Wished for an explanation of some simple things -- how to buy gas or turn on the A/C.
Pros:Great little car (Fiat Panda) to drive through narrow Tuscan city streets.
Cons:Pick-up was chaos: We had booked the car at Dollar, but no Dollar was to be found at the pick-up in the airport in Rome (we were not aware that Dollar was a Hertz company, nor were we informed). The queue to pick up the car was very long, and it took approx. 1.5 hours before it was our turn. Overall, a very poor car pick-up experience.
