Traffic Information back to top

Due to a weak public transportation infrastructure, Rome is notorious for having some of the worst traffic in the world. As such, to cut down on city center congestion the motor traffic limited zone was instated to ban motor traffic during weekday work hours of 6:00 to 18:00. To avoid the hassle of parking and the congestion of the city, head out into the beautiful Lazio countryside for a fresh authentic taste of Italy. The A90 or the Great Ringroad is the main highway which runs around the city, with the A24 and A91 taking you more directly into downtown. Drivers should be especially cautious when driving around in Rome. The Italian capital has some of the highest rates for accidents in Europe with frequent speeding and tailgating cited as two of the main sources.

Sixt Tips back to top

Rome has a long reputation as being a center for trade, tourism, politics, and religion. Between the famous Roman Forum, Colosseum, and the impressive Vatican City you'll be hard pressed to pack in all of these important historical sites during your visit. Having a car lets you spend more time in the museum and less time transferring between erratic bus schedules to better understand the class and luxury lifestyle of modern day Romans. Italy is also known as being one of the great food capitals of the world, giving us now classic staple dishes such as pizza, spaghetti, cannoli, and gelato. After you've finished eating, get a second wind to continue your sightseeing adventure with a piping hot espresso at one of the many cafes lining St. Peter's square. Before leaving Rome, toss a coin in the Trevi fountain to ensure a future return to the city of history, passion, and great food.
