As the streets in Rome are very narrow and parking lots are hard to find, opt for a smaller car like a Mini or a Fiat 500. If you want to explore the surrounding countryside and park your car outside the city, an SUV is a good choice, as Italian country roads can have potholes.
Speed limits, unless otherwise indicated, are 31 mph (50 kph) in residential areas, 68 mph (110 kph) on countryside highways and 80 mph (130 kph) on freeways. Always adhere to the speed limits as the Italian police are very strict with speed regulation and fines can be high. Speed cameras are also commonly used in Italy.
Unless your hotel has a parking space included, it is not wise to attempt finding a parking space in the city, as they are hard to find and are often reserved for locals. Choose a P+R outside the center and close to a metro station, such as the P+R Batistini, P+R Valle Aurelio, or the P+R Laurentina. With only around €2 ($2.25) per 12 hours, they are also a priceworthy option. Parking lots close to the Old Town are also a possibility, but, with a rate of up to €40 ($45) per day, are a rather expensive solution.
