Where to drop off the Rental Car in Rome


We are renting a car in Tuscany and will be driving to Positano and will come back to Rome from Positano.

What is a good place to drop the car off, without getting in the city ?

We are also planning on going to Umbria for few days from Rome. Currently we are thinking of taking the train to Orvieto and renting the car there and dropping it off there. Is there a more better place to pick up and drop the car off ?

Thanks for you help in advance

Happy Orchard.

1. Re: Where to drop off the Rental Car in Rome

You should study a map. Positano is south of Rome, Orvieto is north of Rome. You won't want to drive around Rome, all the way up to Orvieto to drop off a car. Orvieto would work if you were staying north of Rome.

Driving to Positano is tricky. You can circle around Rome and Naples, but when you get past Pompeii and into the Angry area it gets a little busy. Be sure and have good maps! Also, be sure you arrange parking ahead of time as it is hard to find in Positano.

Returning, you'll be coming into Rome from the South. Perhaps you can drop the car on the outskirts, near a train? We've never used the train system south of Rome.

Safe travels!

If you have been driving in Italy, you should be able to drop the car at the rental garage next to the Termini Station in Rome. Just take the via Tiburtina exit off the A1 hiway in East Rome. There are several places to fill up the fuel tank on via Tiburtina. You will be well away from any ZTL areas. Just drive directly to the rental garage and get rid of the car and take a taxi to wherever your destination is in Rome.

Sorry if I wasn't clear on my message :) I meant to pick up and drop off rental car in Orvieto when we are going to Umbria and was checking if there is a better location.

Second question, was while coming back from Positano what is the location to drop the car off. We are thinking of Rome Ciampino airport. This is our first trip to Italy so haven't driven in Italy before and prefer to not drive in the city.

What is the best transportation from Rome Ciampino airport to termini station ? Is there a train or bus we can take ?

Thanks for the help and patience
