Rome is the capital of Italy and the country's largest and most populated municipality (central area), with over 2.7 million residents.

The city of Rome is located in the central-western portion of the Italian Peninsula, on the Tiber river within the Lazio region of Italy. It has been one of history's most powerful and important cities, being the home of the emperor during the Roman Empire. Rome also has a significant place in Christianity and is the present day home of the Roman Catholic Church and the Pope, and the site of the Vatican City, an independent city-state run by the Catholic Church.

Rome's history spans over two and a half thousand years. It was the centre of the Roman Empire, which was a major political and cultural influence in the lands bordering the Mediterranean Sea for over four hundred years from the 1st Century BC until the 4th Century AD. During the Middle-Ages, Rome was home to popes such as Alexander VI and Leo X, who transformed the city into one of the major centres of the Italian Renaissance, along with Florence. The current-day version of St Peter's Basilica was built and the Sistine Chapel's ceiling was painted by artist Michelangelo. Famous artists and architects, such as Bramante, Leonardo da Vinci, Bernini and Raphael resided for some time inRome, contributing to its Renaissance and Baroque architecture.

As a modern city, it has been capital of the unified Italy since 1870, and grew mainly in two periods before and after World War II. Rome is the third-most-visited tourist destination in the European Union, and its historic centre is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Monuments and museums such as the Vatican Museums and the Colosseum are amongst the world's 50 most visited tourist destinations (the Vatican Museums receiving 4.2 million tourists and the Colosseum receiving 4 million tourists every year).

Rome is served by three airports. The intercontinental Leonardo Da Vinci International Airport is Italy's chief airport and is commonly known as "Fiumicino Airport", as it is located within the nearby Comune of Fiumicino, south-west of Rome. The older Rome Ciampino Airport is a joint civilian and military airport. It is commonly referred to as "Ciampino Airport", as it is located beside Ciampino, south-east of Rome. A third airport, the Roma-Urbe Airport, is a small, low-traffic airport located about 6 km north of the city centre, which handles most helicopter and private flights.

Rome, the capital of Italy and possibly one of the better-known cities in the world. Over two million citizens live within its borders, add that figure to the amount of visitors that the city receives every year, and we have a busy destination with a wealth of attractions and sites to see. Nicknamed the “Eternal city,” and “the world’s biggest open air museum,” its history dates back more than 2000 years. As well as being the capital of the Roman Empire, it is also known as the seat of the Catholic Church.

Ten Attractions to See in Rome

The Colosseum was the largest Roman amphitheatre ever built and these days, it is a major landmark and symbol of Rome, appearing on most picture postcards.

The Vatican is a state within Rome and the pope’s residence. Built over the tomb of Saint Peter, within the city are 11 museums including the Sistine Chapel.

The Trevi Fountain is of Baroque style and stands over 25 metres high. Completed in 1762, it is a well-known landmark of Rome.

The Pantheon was built around 126AD and is a perfectly preserved Roman building. The interior of the dome is meant to resemble vaults within heaven.

Capitoline hill was the citadel of early Roman life. Here you can visit two museums with an inspiring art collection containing some great works.

If the historical buildings get too much for you, head for the city’s inner park called Villa Borghese. A large green area, it is especially popular at weekends for leisurely relaxation.

The Vittariano has a lift that will take you to the top of the monument for an amazing panoramic view of the city below.

Saint Peters Basilica is a Renaissance church built within the walls of the Vatican. Open from 7am to 6pm, every day, it includes the tomb of the John Paul the second.

Many people advise that a guided tour is needed to fully appreciate the Roman forum which was the economic and religious centre of Rome.

Piazza Navona is considered the place to hang out. The area has many cafes to sample traditional Italian food and in the middle is the historic fountain of the Four Rivers.

Rome Car Hire

This was our first time using Udrive and as we go to Europe every two years we will definitely be using them again. We found the order process very easy and everything we needed for a smooth pick up in Italy was provided. The pick up in Rome was easy to locate and only took 15 minutes from start to finish with a a good handover of how everything worked and our first location was put into the sat nav for us with the drop off address in Barcelona also added. We were very happy with both service and car provided and will definitely use the service again when we return to Europe. We have also recommended to friends and family. Thanks for the great service. We will be in touch at end of 2020 in readiness for our next trip in 2021.

Straight forward and quick!

Thanks for the feedback request. We hired a car through your company in October when we were traveling in Italy.

Everything ran smoothly: from the online booking process through to pick up and drop off of the car. The car was as specified and in good condition (considering it was Italy where the cars get more of a workout than here! the company existed :) and they were expecting us and the pick up and drop off procedures were very straight forward and quick.

I would certainly use your company again. Regards.
