Elsewhere around Fiumicino and throughout Italy, any paid parking spaces are indicated by blue markings or road signs. White road markings mean parking time is limited but free. Yellow parking bays are exclusive to special vehicles, such as police or disabled drivers. On Sundays and public holidays it is usually free to park.
Roads in Italy are largely toll roads and payment can be made either with cash or credit/debit card when you reach the toll itself.
Be aware that many petrol stations are not open on Sundays and not all accept debit/credit cards so it is sensible to bring cash just in case.
Discover Fiumicino and the surrounding area by car
Situated in the middle of Italy, Fiumicino is an ideal place to arrive in the country. Most visitors fly in and make straight for Rome and there is lots to keep you busy there. The capital of Italy, and one of its most iconic cities, this living museum is just half an hour away from Fiumicino.
Another great day trip from Fiumicino is Lake Bracciano - one of the largest volcanic lakes in the region and filled with lush vegetation. A ban on motorised boats means sailing, canoeing and swimming are extremely popular on the lake.
