and historic sites to mention. Because of its important role in the

time. Almost on every corner and square you can admire historical
buildings. Among the most famous are: Saint Peterís Basilica with the
Sistine Chapel, the Colosseum, Trevi fountain, the castle of Angels
and the Spanish steps.
Renting a car in Rome gives you complete freedom in
transportation. It allows you to explore attractions anywhere in and
around Rome without the difficulties of public transport.
The best time to visit Rome is during spring or
fall. During the summer it may be too hot and smoggy which may cause
inconvenience, especially for those with respiratory problems. Because
of the Mediterranean climate the weather is pleasant enough during
spring and fall for a city trip. Really cold temperatures during
winter are uncommon.
