Rome is a gridded city, so navigation by car is reasonably simple. Traffic congestion is part of morning and evening peak-hour rituals, as more than 4,000 commuters swell Rome’s population on weekdays. With the large amount of snowfall experienced in the winter months, Rome can be somewhat hazardous for motorists. It is recommended that car renters have some snow-driving experience before spanning the city in the winter months.
