Rome is one of the most magnificent and romantic cities in the world. The 'Eternal City', is the capital of Italy and of the Lazio region.
It has two main international airports, the Leonardo da Vinci - Fiumicino International Airport (FCO) and the Ciampino International Airport (CIA) that is located to the southeast of the city.
Rome is such a beautiful city, maybe the most beautiful city in the world and you will need more than 3 days to explore it as there is so much to see and do and a car rental will help you to do it better.
With a rental car you can also visit other cities nearby like the capital of the Campania region Naples, the capital of Tuscany Florence, the capital of Emilia-Romagna Bologna etc. The best times of the year to visit Rome are April, May, and late September through October. Avoid the summer because the heat and the crowds make the city nearly unbearable.
Rent the cheapest Car in Rome with Economy Car Rentals
In the historic centre of Rome you will find the most of attractions but if you stay in a hotel close to these attractions you pay much more, so the best way is to stay not so close and rent a car to visit all the places you like and also arrange day trips. You must go to Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps), a masterpiece of the XVIII century that connects the French Church Trinita dei Monti and the square, with the irregular shape.
Very close you will find the breath taking fountain, Fontana di Trevi, the most beautiful fountain of Rome. It was originally designed by Bernini, but the completion of the project was led by Nicola Salvi.
The Pantheon is also located in the historic centre of Rome, in Piazza del Rotonda, surrounded by numerous cafes, street vendors, and bustle.
You must also go to Piazza Navona that has 3 baroque fountains and the central one -Fountain of Four Rivers- designed by Bernini. It is a lively place with plenty of restaurants and gelato (ice-cream) bars.
In Piazza Barberini you will find the Triton Fountain created by sculptor Bernini and the Museum of Ancient Art, housed in Barberini Palace, and the Fountain of Bees.
Do not miss the Colosseum. This is the site of former gladiatorial conquests, a giant arena. It has an underground network of cells, corridors, ramps and elevators that were used to transport animals from their cages to the arena.
Nearby is the Forum Romanum that was the commercial, political, and religious centre of ancient Rome.

I picked up the car: reported the nicks_ scratches_ and needed mirror repairs. Drove the car; it was a good car to drive in Italy with four people. We dropped off the car: I filled it with gas_ but don_t know if I needed to. Grazie!
Service was great.
Car was fine not exactly as expected
A simple road map of Italy would have been a help.
