Prati Fiscali is home to many restaurants and hotels, as well as public transport which make it suitable for visitors to Rome. Sightseeing opportunities in this European city include Rome's famous seven hills, the Colosseum, the Vatican City, Mouth of Truth and the Spanish Steps.
Car hire allows travellers to venture beyond Rome's city walls to explore the heart of Italy. Rieti, less than an hour's drive away, was home to the Sabine nation. Perched atop a hilltop, this city is considered by many to be the geographical centre of Italy. The quaint city has many places to dine and places to visit including an 8th century church, named Santa Maria, and located in Vescovio.
A short drive from Rieti is Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga National Reserve Park. While it is not far from Rome, it offers peace and serenity to visitors. Hiking to the Laga mountains' snowy summits allows for wide panoramic views. The freshwater springs and rivers in the park are filled with shrimp and trout, while its wooded areas and deep ravines are home to eagles, owls and wolves.
Those looking for nature with a historical twist should venture to Parco Regionale de Veio near Cassia. Located just on the outskirts of Rome, this archaeological park offers the opportunity to explore many Etruscan sites on foot as well as horseback.
With so much to see and do here in Rome, car hire is by far the most convenient way to get around the outskirts of the city and its neighbouring towns and villages. Trams, buses, taxis and Rome's Metro services are cheap and most likely the easiest way to get from one attraction to the next within Rome. Parking is not easily available, or cheap for that matter, so try to avoid taking the car directly into the city centre.
