Rome, also known as the eternal city and the Lazio region are home to some of the most astonishing architectural monuments in the world. A car rental tour of the area provides the freedom to explore this inspiring region at your leisure.
From the imperial Vatican City, (the smallest nation in the world), to the majestic ancient Forum and awe-inspiring Colosseum, it's preferable to discover the city's attractions on foot. Car rental then proves to be your best option when leaving the city to discover the wider area.
Out of town, car rental really opens up your horizons with the stunning Roman countryside and beautiful region of Lazio to discover. Picturesque Lakes Bracciano and Martignano are both well worth a visit, as are the surrounding towns and forests. We also recommend a car rental trip to the stunning Tiber Valley, or to the historic town of Subiaco. The ancient hamlets of Fruscati and Tuscolo are also popular on car rental tours of the region.
In the immediate Latium area surrounding Rome, there are a number of other famous tourist sites you'll need car rental to discover. Ancient Pompeii makes for a fascinating day trip, and has been perfectly preserved by the volcanic eruptions of Vesuvius in 79 AD. Another great hire car journey is to the historic port of Rome at Ostia Antica, or over to the beautiful hill town of Tivoli.
And no car rental holiday to Rome would be complete without visiting all 13 Castelli Romani, the picturesque little towns on the southern hills around city. Set in unspoilt countryside, they offer panoramic views of this stunning region.
