Driving in Rome May 09, 2011
When i rented a car in Rome, I didn't quite know what to expect. If you are used to driving in the U.S. and are unfamiliar with driving anywhere outside of the country, this could be useful information for you. Forget about speed, traffic enforcement, or lanes. Rome is a free for all. Italians tend to ignore street signs, and red lights. If you are not an aggressive driver, don't rent a vehicle here. Also, if you are to rent a vehicle, make sure it is very small. Parking isn't too difficult, and wherever i did park, i never received a ticket (even at unpaid meters). Also, people double, and even triple park, so just hope that you don't get blocked in!
