Best Car Hire Day Trips from Rome
You could spend all your time in the city, but there is so much more to Rome. Need inspiration? Here are our favourite places within an easy drive of the Italian capital:
The delightful town of Orvieto, 124km from Rome, is poised majestically on a volcanic outcrop in the highlands of Umbria. Its Duomo is considered one of Italy’s finest cathedrals, brimming with exceptional mosaics and frescoes that inspired Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel. The city lies atop a network of 3,000-year-old tunnels carved by the Etruscans to provide escape routes in the event of a volcanic eruption, and they remain lined with magnificent living areas. Other attractions include the ancient church of San Giovenale, the 14th-century Albornoz Fortress, and St. Patrick’s Well.
It is well worth the short 33km drive to visit Tivoli, home to two of the most impressive sights in the Lazio region, Hadrian’s Villa and Villa d’Este. Hadrian’s Villa is an extensive complex of 30 ancient Roman structures that Emperor Hadrian built in the second century A.D. as a holiday retreat. Step back in time to glimpse an opulent ancient Rome of marble palaces, theatres, libraries, baths, and temples. On the other side of Tivoli you will find the magnificent gardens of the Villa d'Este, a breathtaking example of Renaissance landscaping, with such stunning features as musical fountains, elegant statues, and delightful waterfalls.
If you have to pick one car hire day trip from Rome, make it Pompeii. Start the day early for this 240km drive to this legendary ruined metropolis, struck by a catastrophic volcanic eruption in 79 A.D. See the remains of 2,000 year buildings and the plaster casts of people who perished in the eruption. The National Archeological Museum of Pompeii also features an exceptional array of art and artifacts excavated from the Pompeii site.
