Welcome to Avis

Around Rome - La Dolce Vita

Driving through the historic hills encircling Rome, the good life is everywhere

Not all roads lead to Rome. In fact the roads leading away from the city unfold an ancient and fascinating world of volcanoes and vineyards, fine wines, frescoes and fabulous views – all just a short drive from the city.

Test drive this two-day road trip for the best of Lazio
Collect your hire car from our Avis Ciampino Airport branch and drive for just 10 minutes to the Castel Gandolfo, the glorious summer retreat of the popes. From here, wind your way through ancient roads to the hilltop village of Grottaferrata.

Head north-east to see the 100 fountains of the Villa d'Este in Tivoli, up through the clouds to the fortress at Calcata, and then enjoy the meal of a lifetime in historic Viterbo. It's just over an hour's drive south back to Rome and you can drop off your hire car at Avis Viterbo. However if you are planning to travel back home from different location, check our car hire in Italy page to find more rental destinations.
