If you decide to arrive by car, for those arriving from the North, the best way to reach the capital is via the Milan-Rome A1 motorway.
Those coming from the West of the country should instead take the Aurelia State Road and then the Civitavecchia-Rome A12 motorway.
From the Adriatic Coast, the best route is via the Aquila-Rome A24 motorway.
Finally from the South, the Naples-Rome A1 motorway should be taken. Every motorway joins up with the “Grande Raccordo Anulare” (or G.R.A.-Rome Ring Road) with all exits for the centre and Rome’s suburbs.
