Why rent an office in Rome?
Because the demand is high and the options are numerous, you need to know how to get around in Rome. Rome is not just one! Every district of Rome - there are more than 50! - has its own characteristics: from the most exclusive, such as Parioli, to the quietest, such as Testaccio.
What types of companies work in Rome
Italy's capital city, Rome, is home to the country's biggest companies, in almost every sector. Rome is home to the most important newspaper in Italy - the one considered the most reliable, ANSA - and to many other newspapers and magazines such as La Repubblica or Il Messaggero.
Rome is also an important cultural centre: the city is home to some of the major film production companies, such as Fandango and Medusa Film, and also to some of the most important publishing houses, such as Newton Compton, Carocci Editore and others.
The most well-known banks, insurance companies, and service providers in Italy and abroad all have at least one office - often the main one - in Rome, making the city a fundamental point of reference for the nation and an important opportunity for anyone who decides to launch their business in this city.
Rome offers great opportunities from every point of view. Renting an office in Rome also means having the possibility to choose between numerous options. Each option is more suited to one type of business than another and corresponds to a different price.
- Office buildings. These are definitely the most economical solution. These can be rented, not only unfurnished, but may also lack certain services, some of which are very important for an office, such as telephone and internet connection. In this case, you can customize it according to your needs. This is not only the cheapest solution, but also the most suitable for long-term projects.
- Classic office. This type of office is usually placed in a building together with several other offices. These offices offer few workstations and are already equipped with all the necessary services and are furnished. The more services on offer, the higher the cost, of course. This type of solution is quicker and more convenient option for temporary solutions.
- Modular and multi-station office. For more complex companies, modular and multi-station offices are certainly more suitable. These are spaces with sufficient resources to guarantee the efficiency of several workstations in a single environment. These are more expensive.
- Prestige offices. For this purpose, Rome is the ideal city: prestige offices located in the city's most fashionable districts, such as Parioli or the vicinity of the historic centre, are the ideal solution for those who wants high class offices. They are also the most expensive option.

Rome and its districts: where to rent your office?
The first thing you have to keep in mind is that Rome is a very big city, the largest in Italy. Its neighbourhoods are very different from each other, each has its own characteristics, and each has its own prices for renting property for private, commercial or office use.
The Centro Storico is the most famous area of Rome. When non-Romans think of Rome they think of the historic centre. It is the most beautiful area in Rome, perhaps in all of Italy, but rents in the Centro Storico are the most expensive. In fact, renting an office in the Centro Storico is out of reach for most people; however, if your company deals in luxury goods and can afford staggering amounts of money to rent their offices in Rome, then there is no better location to enhance your business than the historic centre of Rome.
The historic centre is home to the headquarters of universities, embassies, all of Italy's most important political parties, and other important businesses.
The Termini-Esquilino area, on the contrary, is an area where rents are cheaper. The area is also convenient due to its proximity to the train station. If your office has clients or collaborators coming from outside the city, this area is perfect because, besides being easy to reach, it is also full of hotels and cheap solutions for short term accommodation.
The San Lorenzo district is also quite close to Roma Termini station. The particularity of this area is that it is close to La Sapienza University and is therefore very popular with students and academics. If you are looking for an office in Rome for your work as an academic or researcher, then this area will certainly be the most exciting for you.
If your main objective is to save money, then you may want to consider renting an office in Piazza Bologna. It is one of the cheapest areas, is not frequented by tourists, and is well served by buses and the B line of the metro.
Rione Monti and Prati Vaticani
Rione Monti and Prati Vaticani are the areas closest to the historic centre (especially Rione Monti). These are the areas of Rome most steeped in history, art and culture. If your business is in this area and you have a large budget, these are the areas that can best enhance the prestige of your company.
Another district of Rome that is very well known, even abroad, is the Parioli district. Renting an office in this area is ideal for those working in the fashion, art, or entertainment industries; the area is home to many theatres and entertainment agencies. For everyone else, it is certainly more convenient to evaluate another area of Rome.
If you need to rent an office in Rome but still intend to stay in a quiet area, away from the traffic of residents and tourists and with all the comforts of a modern city centre, then the Testaccio district is the place for you.
Road network in Rome
Rome's traffic is as famous as the city itself and its attractions. This is certainly not a source of pride, but it is also an indication of how central Rome is to the world of business and professionalism. There are areas in Rome that are very difficult to reach by car and others where traffic is much less congested and are therefore better options for those who want to be easily reached by car.
The areas that are impassable by car are definitely those in the historic centre with its ZTLs that are off limits to traffic unless you have specific permits. The city centre is the busiest: Via Tiburtina is famous for being the busiest road in Italy: it is a 6 km long road that leads to the centre of Rome and is almost always congested with traffic.
If you want to open an office that is easily accessible by car, you should prefer more peripheral areas such as Testaccio.
Rome and public transport
Because of the traffic, public transport is often the preferred alternative for those who need to travel within the city.
Rome has two railway stations (Tiburtina and Termini) that connect it with all Italian cities. Each of the stations are located close to subway, bus and taxi stations.
Rome's subway lines are 60 kilometres long and has almost 80 stations, connecting the whole city to the outskirts. The bus network connects practically every corner of Rome, although this means of transport has the disadvantage of being subject to the city's traffic: delays and disruptions are therefore frequent. The taxi service works very well even though, like the bus service, it is still subject to traffic.
Airports in Rome
If you receive customers from all parts of Italy and the world, you may be interested to know the location of airports in Rome. The city of Rome has two main airports:
- Rome-Ciampino. Rome-Ciampino Airport is an international airport. It has ample and secure pay parking facilities. The airport is located in the south-eastern part of the city, on the border with the municipality of Ciampino (part of the airport is in the territory of the municipality of Roma Capitale and part in that of Ciampino). It is served by metro lines A and B and is close to other bus and taxi services. EUR, the Appio district and Tuscolano are the closest districts to this airport.
- Rome-Fiumicino. Rome-Fiumicino Airport is an intercontinental airport and receives flights from and to all major locations around the world. It is located just 30 kilometres west of the centre of Rome and is Italy's most important airport in terms of passenger numbers. This airport has a railway station (Fiumicino-Aeroporto station), several bus lines connecting it to the rest of the city, and a taxi rank. It is also easily accessible from the motorway.
