You will definitely need to rent a car in Rome to get there.

You can pick your rental car up at many locations throughout Rome including Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport, Ciampino International Airport or Downtown Rome.
The interesting thing about traffic rules in Rome is that first ever such rules (for example, one-way traffic) were brought exactly in ancient Rome by Gaius Julius Caesar in 50 BC. It is quite possible that traffic jams and parking were a significant issue even back then. And it is for a reason: traffic in Rome is chaotic and local drivers behave unpredictably.
That's why when you rent a car in Rome you need to drive it as attentively as possible and be aware of the following: the maximum speed within Rome is 50 kph, outside of it – 90 kph and from 110 to 130 kph on a highway. You will definitely spend some time trying to find free parking space but it is obvious that eventually you will find it. Traffic may be limited in the city center, road signs are bilingual: in Italian and English.
Pay special attention to scooters actively used by locals because this is a convenient way of moving by the narrow streets of the capital of Italy.
