Do your research and if possible go with a national brand. It may seem like you are saving a few bucks but in the end, you ended up paying for more.

Do be familiar with your route before you enter the country and have printed plans in case Google Maps isn't working. Be observant of everything taking place around you and try to adapt to the driving culture of the place you are visiting. Doesn't mean you have to be as reckless as some drive, but make sure to not be in the passing lane if you aren't indeed passing. That, by far, would be my biggest tip! Oh, that and save up for the benzine cost and be grateful that in the US we don't have to pay so much for gasoline.

The area is difficult to navigate around the airport, without GPS. We recommend you have a map of the return to Green Motion on-hand for when you come back. Or buy the GPS. This was the only thing that was somewhat difficult.

My first suggestion comes from personal experience. Read the supplied instructions for where to find the rental car facility. I assumed Centauro would be located with the rest of the on-airport counters to only find I had to go to a location for pick up by their shuttle bus. My mistake on that one, otherwise I found Fiumicino airport to be easy to navigate with ample signage to get a traveler to their assigned ticket counter and gates with ease. It helps to learn a little Italian prior to making the trip.

The Abruzzo national park is beautiful. There are interesting tours about the wildlife. They even have bears, but also lots of deer. And there is a little zoo with some of the local animals. The villages in the mountains are cute. And the people very nice.

Driving in tourist hot-spots is best avoided as streets are narrow and parking is expensive. The motorways are fine but expect a lot of toll payments (they take card as as well as cash). October is surprisingly pleasant in terms of weather and it is less busy, a good month to visit. Most restaurants will open at 7pm so try to adhere to the local lunch and dinner times. Gelato is very good and relatively cheap. Most coffee/hot drinks come in sizes smaller to the rest of Europe.

This tip is specifically for Rome Fiumicino airport, but actually is pertinent for most international airports worldwide. There is just the one cafe in the departures hall before security and it's pretty average. If you have friends or family dropping you and staying a while to keep you company in the long wait after check in make sure they clear their bag of ( unfriendly) objects at the car so they can come through the first security point with you to the much better choice of food and drink venues inside.

The shuttle arrived quickly at the airport exactly where the email told us it would, and it was MUCH faster to get the car at the remote site than when I have rented cars from other providers at the airport.

You should tell your customers about the accident report that is in the glove compartment. It is in Italian and a person who doesn't speak the language would never know they should get the other party's signature in the event of an accident.

Consider booking a place near the last metro stop with free parking...you can then use your rental car for daytrips in region and use the metro for Rome without worrying about parking.

Make sure and pace yourself. Try and stop wherever you can where there are markers along the highway describing things to see. If you go to Cinque Terre, park your car in La Spezia and take the train to each town (unless they open up the trail again). Don’t spend a lot of time in Pisa. Get in and get out haha. Lastly, try and spend more time in Florence.

Highly recommend using Centauro for a trip in Italy. They made it so easy and then we used the car to get from one Airbnb to another and then would walk all over the cities. It gave us so much freedom to explore Italy. It was fantastic.

For an American departing-go all the way to the end of the international terminal, they even have a sign for USA largely on the floor. After that, it's pretty easy!

Fiumicino is a bit chaotic, but the newly renovated/built areas are quite nice. The best option for killing time is eating up on the mezzanine level in the international terminal. The lounges were somewhat underwhelming, but had some decent food and wine. Take the train for sure if going to downtown, otherwise a rental car is generally fairly affordable and access is great. It is a fine airport overall.

Fiumicino is a great place to stay before a flight at FCO. You have the beach. Great restaurants, and inexpensive lodging. Easy to book a hotel with shuttle . The town is only about a 10 minutes drive to the airport. The rental car area is on the top level of one of the parking garages with good signage.

Take the tam bus or terravision bus into downtown, cheaper that the da vince train and you get a nice visual tour on the way in. I suggest the Pantheon, especially at night. See the view from the Villa Borghese park at night. Spend time in Piazza Novona. Walk by the Vittoria Emanuel building at night and see the ruins on the way all lit up. Piazza Poppolo is a fabulous spot to relax and “people watch.

If you drive in Italy, especially in the city centre's, you must have such concentration, situational awareness, and pretend all the motor bikes don't exist. And, you must drive "offensively". If you don't, you'll never get through an intersection. For those of you who are timid, take the train.

Hire a car as it’s easier to get around. Take your time, at a minimum 3 days checking out what Rome has to offer. Enjoy the food. Drink the wine with meals. Make sure you have coffe and cornetti every morning. Soak up the atmosphere as there’s nothing else like it. Live it up !!

Take advantage of the extra services; GPS for the car and the Manet phone for outside of the car use. 4. Get the insurance, no risk warranty plus, you will thank me for the peace of mind. 5. Talk to your clerk, they are people and are wonderful to talk to. 6.Pick up your awesome ride and enjoy!

The line for Vatican isn't too long if you wait but the guided tours is probably a good idea. The line took us about 30 minutes in the morning but there is no wait by late afternoon.

A little confusion finding the rental area, but I'll attest that to an 8 hour flight and some grogginess upon debarking. Just find the the little sign of the car with the keys over it and follow that. Was a little jammed in the rental area. All rental agencies lined up in a circle. A bit crowded getting to the back where Hertz was. The airport is really easy to get in and out off. You exit on a direct road into Rome. If you're heading North, like we did, it's a simple ramp to the SS1/E80.

Start your search for a car as early as possible to get a good price. Make sure you have the dates right and make sure your credit card will cover you in Italy. If you don't have an international drivers licence you should get one as you can't get a card in Italy without one. Plan your route in advance. Learn a few phrases in the language so you can get what you need, although most people do speak English. Use your phone navigation system, particularly when returning to Rome. It is not that easy to return compared to leaving.

I would definitely recommend Europcar Fiumicino. The staff was very helpful and made the experience positive for the most part. I would recommend picking up & dropping the car off at the airport. It was very convenient and easy to do. I brought the car back with a full tank of diesel (your best option). However, I was still charged for the full tank option. Not sure what happened there. Anyhow, I was happy with the service and hopefully Europcar Rome Fiumicino will adjust my overall charges. I will definitely be renting from your company next time I'm visiting Rome. Thank-You Europcar Italy!!

Good airport to rent a car, despite of ZTL zones in Italy it is still convenient and cheaper to rent a car, and you can park the car just outside ZTL zones. Try to rent smaller cars, as it will be more convenient to drive on the cities.
