Known as the 'eternal city', Rome is the capital of Italy. Park your car with Parkimeter and stroll through its streets. The impressive monuments and ancient ruins will take you back in time to the city's heyday.
Whether you're planning to spend your holiday in the Eternal City or you're travelling for business and decide to use your car, parking in Rome, as in all major cities, can be a real challenge. If you book a hotel, you should find out if it is one of the hotels with parking in Rome and what would be the price of parking in Rome, so you can make the best decision. Car parks in Rome daily rates: most public car parks in the capital have decreasing prices, i.e. the daily price decreases as the number of days booked increases, which is not normally the case in hotels. If you do not book a daily parking space, remember that you may be charged for parking on a per-minute basis, which is much more expensive.
Contrary to what you might expect in Rome you can park for free in several places in the city, some where there is no time limit, others where parking is limited, but it doesn't matter because you won't have to pay anyway. Below we will list the various places where you can park for free:
PARKING TRASTEVERE The first we recommend is Trastevere Parking, located in the square in front of the station that bears the same name, and near Villa Sciarra, between Via Nicola Fabrizi and Piazzale della Radio. This car park is offered free of charge to all those who need to access the station and has no time limit for parking.
VIA UGO OJETTI The one in Via Ugo Ojetti is one of the largest areas available to tourists; unlike Trastevere, however, parking in this area is allowed only up to 3 hours, after displaying the time disk. In terms of distance it is a bit far from the centre, in fact you will have to rely on public transport to get there.
VIALE LUIGI SCHIAVONETTI Located near Viale Luigi Schiavonetti, where it is again necessary to expose the time disk and do not stop for more than three hours. Also in this case it is a car park very far from the city centre, even more distant than that of Via Ugo Ojetti.
GEMELLI STATION The parking spaces in the vicinity of Gemelli Station, precisely in Via della Pineta Sacchetti, are quite numerous, about 300. The parking spaces in this area are on average far from the city centre, but like all the others are well served by public transport.
All of these listed are excellent free alternatives, but unfortunately far from the centre and where there is no control over cars. So if you want to save yourself the stress of public transport plus the anxiety of leaving your car unattended, you can use Parkimeter to solve these problems.
If you are staying in Rome for several weeks, it is likely that you will prefer to encounter long-term parking, commonly known as low-cost parking or park and ride. It is advisable to use this option if you decide not to use your car so often, as you will spend the difference on public transport if it is not a nearby car park.
If you opt for parking close to your residence, Rome has an excellent distribution of public car parks. However, it is not the same to find parking near the Colosseum, in the historic centre, near St Peter's or the Spanish Steps, which are very popular tourist sites where you may find a "full parking" notice if you arrive without a reservation, as it is to find parking near Garbatella, for example, where it is normally easier. This is why it is advisable to make a prior reservation with Parkimeter, especially if you want to park in the centre of Rome or near Roma Termini station.
Built in the '20s and located quite outside the historical centre, Garbatella is one of the most unique and fascinating areas of Rome that now houses several culturally relevant centres, such as the theatre Ambra alla Garbatella and the Palladium Theater. It extends over the Q. X. Ostiense district, where the largest patriarchal basilica in Rome is located after St Peter's in the Vatican, the Basilica of St Paul Outside the Walls and the third most important railway station in the capital, the Ostiense railway station. The latter, as well as being an intermodal hub of the city, is served by high-speed rail links to the cities of Florence, Bologna, Padua, Milan, Turin and Venice.
Finding parking in Garbatella Rome is not as difficult as in the historic centre. However, there is a wide variety of prices, so you need to be far-sighted and spend some time with Parkimeter to get the best parking space: the one closest to your destination, that meets the required services and with the most advantageous price. If you want to walk around Garbatella, we recommend you to look for parking in the surroundings.
Just like its monuments, historical buildings and places of worship, markets are places that characterise a city. Rome has many of them. From the most famous Porta Portese, where you will find everything from plants to bicycles, including modern antiques and second-hand goods, to many small local markets. One of the best known is the Mercatino di via Sannio, where you can find interesting stands of quality shoes, branded clothing, theatrical clothes, vintage and stock.
Then there are: Testaccio Market, perfect for those looking for fresh produce, it's a place that surprises you with its variety and where you'll also always find plenty of clothing, footwear, accessories and all kinds of household items; Monti Market, a historic indoor market with a London inspiration, where you can buy original retro clothes, costume jewellery, accessories and trends; Nomentano Market, an indoor market based in a building from 1926, which offers mainly foodstuffs; Roma Farmer's Market Garbatella, formerly inside the former Slaughterhouse of Testaccio, offers zero-kilometre food products from the provinces of Lazio; Mercato Trionfale, located in what is historically the most popular area of Prati, close to St Peter's, offers almost everything, with the possibility of purchasing products online too; and finally the Mercato Esquilino, which used to have its stalls in Piazza Vittorio, and because of its location remains the most multiethnic and varied, with spices and products for every culture and cuisine.
If you are a frequent passenger on the local or high-speed train, Parkimeter offers parking facilities within walking distance of Roma Termini, such as the Autorimessa Tucci car park or the Supergarage Pretorio car park. Roma Termini is the city's main railway station, the largest in Italy and the fifth largest in Europe in terms of passenger traffic. Termini offers both long-distance (including high-speed trains to Florence and Naples) and regional services, as well as the Leonardo Express for direct connections to Rome-Fiumicino airport.
With Parkimeter, you can also park in the vicinity of Roma Tiburtina station. Located on the line to Florence, this train station is managed by Grandi Stazioni and is the second Roman station and the sixth nationwide. It is served by all north-south long-distance trains and the regional FL1 lines and is the terminus of the FL2 and FL3.
You want to park in Rome near the metro, in the same complex is the station of the same name on the B line of the Rome metro. Just beyond the station forecourt is the Tibus Bus Station, a modern terminal for arrivals and departures of medium and long-distance buses for both Italy and abroad. In addition, the station forecourt serves as the terminus for numerous bus lines connecting it with the Pietralata, Tiburtino, Casal Bertone and city centre districts. Thanks to the construction of a new station, Tiburtina is destined to become Rome's main hub and high-speed railway junction.
If you are looking for parking near the Colosseum, Parkimeter has the right solution for you, in fact you can park near the Colosseum a few meters from the imposing work symbol of the capital.
Parking in this area is not easy as the streets are all very narrow, but we have the solution for you with the Leonetto car park.
The car park is between Municipality I of Rome and the Vatican City. You will have to walk a little way to the Fountain, but you can use this way to enjoy other attractions of the city, such as the Basilica of Saint Augustine, the Church of Saint Mary Magdalene and many more. If you want to go a little lower, there is the Pantheon.
The car park is also near the Umberto I Bridge. You can cross over and, in a few metres, you will find the Castel Sant' Angelo.
Rome is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world but also one of the most chaotic. If you happen to be in Rome with your car to visit the city or for other reasons, know that parking in the center of Rome can turn into your worst nightmare. But don't despair: there are some tricks you can take to find a place to park your car without any problems, even in a city like Rome.
Finding and reserving a public car park in advance is easy with Parkimeter: this online platform allows you to search and compare the various parking offers according to the city or place of interest and choose the one best suited to you and your needs.
The city of Rome is very large and dispersed, which is why it is difficult to consider only one area as 'central'. We propose two, depending on what you want to do and the area to which you want to be closest.
The Colosseum is considered one of the seven wonders of the world and it is impossible to come to Rome without seeing it at least once.
Parking in a public car park near the Colosseum can be a smart choice, and Parkimeter offers various possibilities. You can park your car in this area and start your visit to the Eternal City from the most famous amphitheater in the world!
Piazza di Spagna in Rome is one of the most beautiful and renowned squares: the site of numerous film recordings, flowery and always full of people. In addition, this square is located close to the historical center, and is also an appropriate place to park your car so that you can start your visit from here: we recommend that you move around on foot, so that you can lose yourself in the meanders of one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
Parking in a public car park at the Spanish Steps is convenient for seeing Via Condotti and its luxurious shops all the way to Via del Corso. Nearby you will find one of the city's main symbols: the Trevi Fountain, one of the most famous in the world). Also a few minutes away is Piazza Navona and the Pantheon, ancient home of the gods.
As we have previously mentioned, Rome is very chaotic and this also affects the search for parking spaces and the limited number of them especially when it comes to street parking in the center of Rome.
In the central areas, on-street parking is blue stripes, i.e. a charge from 8:00 to 20:00 with a price of €1 or €1.20 depending on whether it is a restricted traffic zone or not. In the white stripes, on the other hand, parking is free but with a maximum time limit of 3 hours, after which you could face heavy fines.
If you are coming from the North and you are looking for a car park near the Grande Raccordo Anulare, where you can leave your car and then reach the centre by public transport, Parkimeter has the solution for you!Read more
