Parking near Rome’s airports

Parking near Rome's train stations

Parking near the Civitavecchia Port

Probably the only thing Rome doesn’t have is the sea! But in nearby Civitavecchia, located about 80 km from the capital, is one the largest ports of the whole peninsula, from which many cruises depart. So if you want to take a boat “from Rome”, what you need is to book a car park at the Civitavecchia Port!

Can Tourists drive in Rome?

Driving conditions are affected by the heavy traffic in Rome but also by different pedestrian areas, and most of all, by the Rome Limited Traffic Zones (ZTL). These are areas where traffic and parking are prohibited or limited at certain times of day or in the event of high levels of pollution.

Entering one of the ZTL of Rome without permission really only has one outcome, and a rather tragic one at that: a fine. But we want to help you avoid that!

Is there free parking in Rome?

Now that you know how to move deftly through the streets of the Italian capital, all that remains to be seen is where to park, and, if possible, how to avoid fines and mind-boggling rates while doing so. In general, street parking in Rome is only free for certain people, including local residents or people with electric cars. The rest of us have to keep an eye out for the color of the lines on the street. 

  • Blue lines: These are the most common in the city, but unfortunately parking in these areas is only free on Sundays, holidays, and weeknights. You could also park there from Monday to Saturday, from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 or 8:00 p.m. (depending on the neighborhood), but for a fee of course.

  • White lines: Like the unicorns of parking spaces, the white areas are rare, so consider yourself lucky if you find a spot within them! The good news? This area of parking in Rome is free… but only for a maximum of 3 hours! There has to be a catch right?

  • Yellow lines: These areas are free for people with disabilities.

  • Pink Lines: These areas are reserved for pregnant women and new mothers to be able to park easier.

Is parking free in Rome on Sunday?

Good news, parking in blue areas is free on Sundays and public holidays!

How do you pay for parking in Rome?

  • Through the parking meter machine, paying by cash/coins and introducing the amount of time you would be using the parking (being careful as to the maximum time you are allowed to be parked according to the color of the parking area you are in!).

  • Through the “scratch and paper” method: this is not the most common method but in certain kiosks, you are handed a paper where you may scratch the time you need to park and then display it in your car.

Visiting Vatican City

Are we forgetting anything? Yes indeed! We can’t talk about Rome without mentioning the Vatican! Well, technically Vatican City. Did you know it is its own independent state within Rome, ruled by the Pope? It might be the world’s smallest state, but if you think you can see everything in a few hours, it's time to change your mind and change into some comfortable shoes. Read on to see everything you can visit in Vatican City!

  • St. Peter’s Basilica: The heart of the Vatican and the largest church in the world, this famous basilica is surrounded by semicircles of columns, marking the edges of St. Peter’s Square.  

  • Vatican Museum: You could spend hours walking through here, admiring the seemingly endless works of art, saying nothing but “oooh” and “aaahhh” the whole time!

  • Sistine Chapel: Probably what most people think of and come to visit, you can reach the famous chapel at the end of the Vatican Museum tour and finally contemplate Michelangelo’s awe-inspiring work in person, from the amazing altar piece, Last Judgment, to his illustrious The Creation of Adam.

  • Papal Palace of Castel Gandolfo: One of the Pope’s residences, this palace also houses a museum exhibition that recounts more than 500 years of history of the different Popes.

So we’ve talked about places and monuments to visit, but there is still so much more to see and do in Rome! Are you starting to think you haven’t taken enough vacation days? :)

You definitely can’t leave the capital without walking along the characteristic narrow streets of the Trastevere district, taking a picture on the Milvio Bridge, going shopping on the city’s most elegant streets (head over to Via Vitorrio Veneto and Via del Babuino), watching a football match at Olympic Stadium, or visiting the Porta Portese market.
