The Art of Parking In Rome
[Regions of Italy] [Back to Rome]

Reserve a rental car at the guaranteed lowest price!

If you are planning to keep a car in Rome, our first advice is to really think that through. If you still want to have the car, then your reasons are surely excellent! Your hotel will usually offer what they call parcheggio convenzionato, which means they have guaranteed spaces at a nearby private parking garage. They may or may not also have special rates. Check with the hotel to make sure what the charges are and what hours you will have access to your car (and what days of the week). This is certainly the easiest way to park your car, so if you are comfortable with the costs and hours, then we suggest you go with this.

If you prefer a public parking structure, we offer some available in central Rome as of 2010. All charge fees, of course, but we haven't included them because they are subject to change.

Terminal Gianicolo (not too far from St. Peter's)
Open 7 am - 1:30 am
Entrance in Piazza della Rovere/Via Gregorio VII
This may be the most convenient structure, because there is an electric bus, #116, which has its terminal right inside the structure and goes every seven minutes to Via Giulia, Campo dei Fiori, Corso Vittorio Emanuele, the Pantheon, Via del Tritone and P.zza Barberini. If you plan to avail yourself of this very simple system, be sure to stop at a tobacco shop or newsstand before you enter the car park, to purchase bus tickets.

Stazione San Pietro (also near St. Peter's)
Open 6 am - 10 pm, Monday-Saturday
Entrance at St. Peter's Rail Station
Cheaper than the Gianicolo (2 Euro for 12 consecutive hours), right next to the Metro A subway, which goes to the Vatican and the Spanish Steps.
