Renting a car from Rome to Florence?

by Torella

Party of 6 staying 1 night in Rome upon arrival. Plan to rent a car to drive to our destination in Florence the next dayafter seeing some sights. Should we rent a car from somewhere within Rome or should we get back to the airpot to rent????

Have you thought of taking the train from Rome to Florence? You could do local sightseeing in Florence and then rent a car there for sightseeing in rural Tuscany which is beautiful and easier to access by car. Cars in large cities are generally an expensive nuisance. We usually park ours in an outlying town and take a bus into the city.

i agree that using the train to get to florence is easiest even if there is a group of six people. but if you are determined to get a car - we have always rented at the airport even though it means a special trip out there because driving in rome is so difficult. and frankly florence is no better especially since so much of the center city is off limits to all but people with a special pass to drive there.

Remember that if you pick up a vehicle at Fiumicino, rather than in the city, you will probably have to pay an airport location surcharge which could be 30-40 euros. And of course there is the added cost of travelling to the airport.

I've been a passenger in a car in Italy. I've been to Rome and I've been to Florence. I've even cycled on a bicycle in Rome and Florence.

My advice: Take the train.

If you are not used to driving in Italy and not used to driving in big cities like Rome - forget about renting a car.

Italians are generally regarded as the worst drivers in Europe and traffic in Rome is absolutely crazy. Think Ben Hur with Fiats and Vespas. Florence is not much better, mainly because you cannot enter the old city with a car. Traffic circumnavigates it in narrow one-way streets, miss a right turn and you go around the whole city again.

Many Italian cities have restricted traffic zones (ZTL) where only the locals (of the specific neighbourhood - not even people from other parts of the same city) are permitted to drive. There will be a small ZTL sign which many people overlook, and a traffic camera - and the next thing you get in your mail after returning from your trip is an invoice for a ~90 € fine. And depending on where you live, it may cost you half the amount again just to get the money there.

Driving between and into major cities in Italy is a BAD idea.

Travel Tips for Rome

From top of Trinità dei Monti

by alza

I haven't been to Rome for a while but can't think of a better place to hang out than the Barcaccia fountain at the foot of the stairs at Trinità dei Monti, Piazza di Spagna. A good meeting place among the azaleas :)

The staircase leading up to the Church Trinità dei Monti is elegant and impressive. I won't go into the diplomatic fights that took place between France and the Vatican at the time the stairs were built. Both powers are represented by their blasons there...

I think the photo was taken at the top, near the Convent of the Sacred Heart. The view from the top is great! My fondest memory of Rome is dining on Via Veneto with my friend Bruce, in a very good restaurant where we didn't even know how to ask for plain water (non frizzante, I said... they understood)
We probably were lucky, everything was beautifully presented and delicious, yet it wasn't that expensive. That was near the end of the seventies... From what I hear, prices have gone up on Via Veneto. Maybe people don't even go there these days. But I'm a huge Fellini fan and I had to walk where Anita Ekberg walked in La Dolce Vita! It was unforgettable! :)

If you are a mad food shopper . . .

by LauraZ

Take tupper ware containers so when you have bought the food you can put them in there and pack them into your suitcase. They wont get squashed then and no leaks! Just make sure you take decent tupperware!

Department Store in the Historical Center

by Lacristina about La Rinascente

Ooops, you left your Clinique makeup bag at home. Maybe they lost your luggage and you need one of everything, including underwear. Maybe it's winter and you've lost your hat, scarf, or gloves. Maybe you just want to check out some prices before you buy that scarf from the street vendor.

La Rinascente can help. It's the only department store in the historical center. And its open almost all the time.

Hours: Monday to Saturday, 9:30 to 10 p.m. Sunday 10:30 to 8 p.m.

If you don't find what you want there, walk across the street to the new Galleria Colonna with dozens of shops. Women and men's clothing, underwear, perfume, makeup, purses and wallets, typical department store things. Moderate department store prices - not cheap, but not terribly expensive either.

Careful

by Vachana

We visited an Indian Restaurant and the food was quite good. But we did not know that we will be cheated. When the cheque was given to us, it had all additional extras. We were annoyed by the way they reacted. Please read the menu card carefully and ask them whether any extras are been added. The food was not too good but quiet managable.

Cheap snacks

by Turska about Ceasar pizza

This was one of the cheapest places in the middle of Rome.We ate Pizza margareta slices,and bought water(witch was under half of the price that at sellincars 100m away.)
They also had pastas at paper-plates,and the prices weren´t over 5e,all cheaper than a hamburger.We didn´t taste the pasta. I only took margareta,so I must say it ;)
