Hertz in Rome Fiumicino Airport

The home of gladiators, togas, art and historical legends, Rome is the roaring heart of the Italian nation. For a true flavor of Italy, there’s no better place to start than here. Located on the outskirts of the capital, Rome Fiumicino Airport is the perfect place to start your Mediterranean adventure.

The airport - also known as Leonardo di Vinci International Airport - welcomes people from all over the world to experience life the Italian way. Car rental at Rome Fiumicino Airport gives you total freedom to enjoy Rome and the surrounding areas at your own pace, without having to tackle the public transport system or wait on cabs.

You’ll find our offices in terminal 2 and, from here, the collection area is just a five-minute walk away. Our friendly team will answer any questions you have at our desk, and we guarantee the very best Hertz price – find a cheaper one and we’ll refund the difference.

Driving in and around Rome

Rome

The airport is around 20 miles from the center of Rome via Autostrada A91 – a freeway which runs alongside the River Tiber. This route, also known as the Roma Fiumicino highway, is easy to navigate and takes around 45 minutes. The A90 circular runs around the capital city, narrowing to the single-lane E80 in places, making it simple to tour the area and find your destination.

When in Rome – or indeed anywhere in Italy – you must drive on the right hand side of the road as at home. Many of the A-roads (or Autostrada) have tolls, so make sure you travel with euros to hand. Generally, the speed limit on major freeways is 80 mph, except when signs say otherwise. This drops to 68 mph outside the big cities, 55 mph on many local roads and 31mph in built-up areas.

There are a couple of areas in Rome that are closed to non-residents cars. These restricted zones – Zona Traffico Limitato – can be found in Centro Storico, the city’s old heart, and also Trastevere. If your hotel is within either zone, call them ahead of time to arrange access.

If you want to journey further afield, our pick-up point at the airport is a great place to start. Drive south on the A1 for around two and a half hours and enjoy a weekend break in Naples and Pompeii, two popular destinations settled in the shadows of Mount Vesuvius.

Continue south on the E45 freeway for another hour and a half to the picture-perfect Amalfi Coast, famous for its colorful towns and villages balanced precariously on the coastal cliffs.

From here, the A3 highway unlocks the door to the south coast. Road trip down ‘The Boot’ at your leisure, pulling up in coastal villages and admiring idyllic beaches, until you reach Reggio Calabria – a sun-drenched town on the very southern tip.

A quick guide to Rome

Rome

Admiring the ancient ruins, eating gelato on the Spanish Steps or throwing a coin in the Trevi Fountain - however you choose to spend your time, the energy and theater of Rome ensures there’s never a dull moment.

Roman antiquities and attractions

Famous for its legendary architecture, you can easily fill your days in Rome touring the local relics and ruins. First stop, the Colosseum – a stone amphitheater built in the 1st Century AD, which stands proudly in the center of the city. Just around the corner, you’ll find the Roman Forum ruins, set against the backdrop of Palatine Hill.

A mile north, you’ll find The Pantheon – another stunning example of preserved Roman ambition. Constructed over 2000 years ago this Roman temple, complete with Corinthian columns and a colossal domed roof, is a humbling sight.

From the Romans to the Renaissance, continue your tour of beautiful buildings by venturing inside the Vatican City. This is an independent country – the smallest in the world - and home of the Pope.

You’ll need special passes to access the country freely, however you can steal a look inside St Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel with tickets bought on the day. Painted by Michelangelo between 1508 and 1512, these buildings are widely recognized as two of the greatest Renaissance masterpieces in the world.

Feast in Rome

The Italian passion for cuisine pumps through the veins of the city, so you’re never far away from a fresh plate of pasta or a hand-tossed pizza. Pull up a chair at any of the restaurants and cafes across the city for an authentic Italian feast – simply follow the smell of the pizza oven. Pizzas here are thinner-crusted than the Neapolitan originals, but still delicious.

On the eastern banks of the meandering river, the cobbled streets and squares of Trastevere serve up something really special. From traditional osterias to gelato bars, treat your taste buds to the whole-hearted Italian experience in the al fresco setting of this friendly neighborhood.

Ashes to ashes

Just over 20 miles east of Rome, you’ll find the town of Tivoli. The splendid Villa d'Este – a celebration of Renaissance art and culture – is the centerpiece, with lush gardens, romantic buildings and grandiose fountains enchanting all who come to visit. Tivoli is accessible by car from the A25 westbound and the journey time is about 45 minutes.

For a slightly longer road, drive on the E45 southbound to Pompeii. Once a prosperous market town, Pompeii was devastated in 79 AD by a violent eruption from nearby Mount Vesuvius.

The city was buried under nearly 20 feet of volcanic ash, and lay undiscovered until the nineteenth century. This historical goldmine is just over two and a half hours drive away from Rome, which means you can be wandering through the amazingly preserved streets by mid-morning. 

Round off your Italian adventure with a leisurely trip back via the ancient Roman port of Ostia Antica. Explore the old streets, crumbling buildings and impressive mosaics of this sprawling area, and imagine what life must have been like in those ancient days. It’s the perfect end to your visit to the riches of Rome and beyond.
