Expedia car hire in Rome comes with No Hidden Fees

There are few destinations in the world that can claim to be quite the treasure trove of historical and cultural relics as the city of Rome, whose major attractions include ruins from the ancient Roman Empire and splendours of the Catholic Church in Vatican City. Those visiting Rome will be amazed by the vast range of riches it has to offer, which include such iconic sites as the Pantheon, the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter’s Basilica, and the Trevi Fountain. There are also a number of unique museums, such as the Keats-Shelley House and the acclaimed Vatican Museums.

Tour Italy from the Transport Hub of Rome

Those making their way to Rome will most likely arrive at the Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport (FCO), which is located approximately 20 miles west of the city centre and can be accessed by the Leonardo Express Train, buses, taxis, or by the use of a car rental service. The airport provides easy access to the city’s major hotels and attractions.

However, those planning to tour Rome’s surrounding regions should be sure to consider hiring a car, which could save them both time and money during their visit. To research car hire services and places of interest outside of Rome city centre, simply use the Expedia search tool now.

Hiring a Car from Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport (FCO)

Those spending the majority of their time in central Rome may not find much need for a car, but those hoping to explore the city’s surroundings should consider renting a vehicle upon arrival at the airport. The Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport car rental service centre offers a range of the industry’s best recognised brands, including Avis, Firefly, Sixt, Hertz, and Locauto.

Hiring a Car from the Rome City Centre

Visitors arriving in Rome via train who are hoping to hire a car from the centre of the city will also have a variety of options available to them. As in most major cities, it is best to ensure that you pick up and drop off your car immediately before you leave the city and after your return. This will cut down on costs and allow you to avoid the hassles associated with parking. Central Rome offers car hire companies such as Sixt, Budget, Primerent, Elite, Hertz, and Maggiore.

Drive to Naples and Pompeii

The drive down the western coast of Italy will provide visitors with a range of scenic views and the opportunity to discover a number of historically important locations, including the city of Naples and the ruins of Pompeii. Note that during the hot summer months, temperatures during a trip to Pompeii can make for an arduous drive, so be sure to check weather forecasts while planning your tour of the south. Also be aware that rental cars tend to be manual drive, and that it is illegal to turn right on a red light in Italy.
