Rome (Italy)

Rome is the capital city of Italy and Lazio region, as well as the fourth most populous city in the European Union by population within city limits. It receives around nine million tourists annually, which has an enormous impact on the mobility system. A combination of a lack of a cycling culture and proper infrastructure and the influence of decades of car-oriented policies has led to Rome having one of the Europe's highest car ownership rates and one of its lowest cycling rates. There exists great promise however, for sustainable urban mobility to become an integral part of the city fabric, and in the process make it a more liveable place for residents and tourists alike.
