One big piece of advice if you are visiting Rome — DO NOT RENT A CAR! Seriously, there is no worse way to experience the city as a vistor than the drive. Driving in Rome is not for the faint of heart and while I miss driving and am always happy to get a ride with a friend somewhere, I’m so happy that I don’t have a car here. Between limited traffic zones (ZTL), limited parking, tons of traffic, and scooters whizzing by, you really need to know your stuff to drive here. If you’re a tourist, there’s most likely no need for the car, as it’s kind of pointless in the historic center and you’ll spend more time circling around looking for a parking spot than enjoying the city.
