We have two cars, a small car, Hyndai Atos for easy parking or a Fiat Multipla which seats six, diesel run and both are very reliable. There is a train which will take you directly to Piazza del Popolo into the heart of Rome and runs every 10 mins, a journey of 25 minutes (cost of 3 euros return) either by train or car. There are a variety of local, excellent, family run restaurants in the town for excellent pizza, pasta and locally grown produce and meat dishes at great value prices.
