The Insider's Guide to Rome

The saying "all roads lead to Rome" still rings true in Italy, where the capital is at the convergence of a dozen highways, including the A1 autostrada, which connects Rome with Florence, Milan, and Naple. The Grande Raccordo Annulare, called the "GRA," is a highway ring around the greater Roman urban area into which all incoming roads feed. Rome's a headache to drive in, so use the GRA to circle around to the side of the city closest to your final destination rather than trying to cut across downtown.

Travel by car

Other US-based companies
Europe by Car

In some cases, slight discounts are offered to members of the American Automobile Association (AAA) or the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP). Each pampany offers a collision-damage waiver (CDW) at $15 to $25 per day (depending on the car's value). Some companies include CDWs in the prices they quote; others don't. This extra protection will cover all or part of the repair-related costs if you have an accident. (In some cases, even if you buy the CDW, you'll pay $200 to $300 per accident.) (Check your existing auto insurance and also see what's available through your credit cards. Note that credit cards might cover collision but will usually not cover liability.) In addition, because of Italy's rising theft rate, all three of the major U.S.-based companies offer theft and break-in protection policies (Avis and Budget require it).
Emergencies Dial 113 for ambulance, police, or fire. In case of a break-down on an Italian road, dial 116 at the nearest telephone box; the nearest Automobile Club of Italy (ACI) will be notified to come to your aid.
