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.

Business Travel

Rome's prime location in Europe plays a key role as a financial, cultural, and business center within the EU. Some of the main industries include the technology, research, construction, and commercial sectors. Rome's economy is also heavily influenced by tourism due to its world famous art, fashion, churches, and food. The Cinecitta Studios come second only to Hollywood as one of the biggest and most influential film production companies, making Rome a rich and dynamic cultural city. While there is no separate building designated for the sole purpose of exhibitions and trade shows, the Sheraton Roma Hotel is the best when it comes to conference space in Italy.
