Shipping Container Costs to Rome, Italy

With a rich history that spans more than two and a half thousand years, it's easy to see why the magnificent city of Rome attracts so many people each year. This historic city, with its world-renowned architecture, is the third most visited city in the European Union. Rome boasts several places of interest, including the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon and St. Peter's Basilica. Not only is Rome known for its fascinating history, it's also known for it's delectable cuisine, which can be found in the city's many restaurants. Whether you order the Fettucine Alfredo, Carciofi, or Spaghetti alla Carbonara ñ you will never go hungry in this city. The weather in Rome is cool and humid in the winter and hot and dry in the summer. Expats will benefit from the city's public transport system, which consists of a three line Metropolitana (metro), trams, buses and if none of those sound appealing, you can hire a scooter, as many Romans do! The city is home to many prestigious musical theatres and conservatories, as well as Cinecitt‡ studios, which is considered the centre of Italian cinema. But before you brush up on your Italian and prepare yourself for the magnificent city of Rome, you will need to arrange the shipment of your items. The contents of a 3-bedroom house should fit into a 20-foot container, but if you are moving the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house, a 40-foot container would be preferable. A 40-foot container should also be enough for a 3-bedroom house plus a family car.
