Rome-Fiumicino Airport, also known as Leonardo DaVinci International Airport, is Italy's main airport, serving more than 40 million passengers each year. The airport is located in Fiumicino, only about 35 kilometres from the historic centre of Rome, so it is the one chosen by those who want to visit the wonderful city. This proximity makes it ideal for those who prefer to rent a car at the airport, and start their trip freely through Italy from the beginning.
You have over 14 car rental agencies to choose from at the airport. You have the multinational ones such as Alamo, Enterprise and Sixt, and other ones that are exclusive from Italy such as Maggiore, Noleggiare and Sicily by Car.
In all of them, you will have an unlimited miles service so you can take the rented car all over Italy without any problem.
The prices to rent a car at the airport are usually higher since tourist and international prices are handled, but if you take the time to wait and rent the car in downtown Rome, then you can get great deals and better service.
Here you will find the same companies that are at the airport, as well as a large number of local agencies. Something good about renting those that are also at the airport is that sometimes they let you return the car at the airport, so you can enjoy it throughout your trip. However, local agencies are usually cheaper than the others.
At the end of the day, the important thing is that you choose the one you feel most comfortable with. In both, you will find a great variety of cars and similar benefits.
Driving in Rome is quite easy, the only drawback that you can find is in the roundabouts, but if you are patient then you will not have any problem.
Something that you should carry with you all the time while driving is your driver's license and the proof that your car is rented, since otherwise you will be fined and you will also have to pay extra money to the car rental agency (in most of the cases), but having those documents with you will avoid all the problem.
Some extra tips are:
In addition to the agencies already mentioned, other car rental companies undoubtedly get all the praise. Here I will name two that stand out above the rest since they have great reviews, the greatest amount of benefits and means of payment, and a large fleet of cars from which you can choose.
Crent Roma, belonging to Crent SRL, is one of the agencies that stand out above the rest. Something that makes it unique is its wide variety of vehicles available to subtract, from minivans to SUVs, small cars for couples, and even scooters for those who want to experience an authentic Italian experience.
The other is Noleggio Auto di Lusso, which is from Primerent, an exclusive car rental company. What makes it stand out is that you can rent ordinary cars, or even luxury cars to visit Rome in style. They recently added electric cars from different companies to their fleet, from Tesla to Porsche, Audi and Jaguar. So if you want to feel comfortable and drive a luxury car, now you can also do it in a car that takes care of the environment and will save you money on gas.
Only in the city of Rome, you will find hundreds of destinations to visit that you cannot miss, and that going by car will be much easier for you to reach all of them.
If you go to Rome you must visit the Roman Colosseum, The Pantheon of Rome, the Trevi Fountain, as well as the different imposing Churches that fill the city of Rome with a unique energy.
If you travel early, you can also get away from Rome and take a road trip to other parts of Italy. The other major city that is closer is Naples, and you can reach it in 2 hours. The other big cities like Milan, Venice and Genoa are trips that can take you from 5 to 7 hours, but if you like to drive and have the time you should definitely do it.
