- When you rent a car in Rome, scrupulously obey no parking signs. The Italian police continue to crack down on illegally parked cars. Unpaid tickets will be passed on via your Rome car rental agency, including an extra fee for their own extensive troubles. In other words: ouch.
- With parking spaces so hard to come by, it pays to know that the biggest public garage in Rome is the Parcheggio Borghese, found below the Villa Borghese park and accessed on Via del Muro Torto. It is open 24 hours.
- Driving along the autostrada (motorway)? These are toll roads: you must take a ticket when you access the autostrada, and then pay when you exit. Avoid the Telepass lane and pay in cash (notes and coins) at a regular lane. Have some cash ready to avoid sweaty searches while the driver behind beeps impatiently. We’ve all been there.
