Hiring a car in Italy
Car Hire Italy is such a popular transport option for people visiting Italy for business and also for pleasure, whether visiting, or holidaying anywhere from the Dolomite Mountains in the North right down to Sicily. Car hire in Italy means that you can go from town to town, or city to city or from one UNESCO World Heritage site to another really easily and you can pick and choose the places that appeal to you most.
There is a great network of Motorways in Italy that are for the most part really well maintained, and this means that you can travel easily from one location to another. A drawback of car hire can be the cost of tolls here which can be high, however, public transport especially trains can be very expensive, so do like me and weight up the costs of both modes of transport and the ability to get exactly where you want, and car hire always comes out on top for me for cost, convenience and flexibility.
Part of the flexibility of a hire car is that you can pop into little towns or villages that you pass, and literally every town in Italy has something to offer and being free to explore in your hire car gives you a richer travel experience. So for summer sun and fun, head to Capri, Amalfi, Bari, Sicily, Sardinia, Tuscany or one of the thousands of other beautiful coastal delights waiting for you. For fun and interesting cities check out Naples, Florence, Venice, Verona, Milan, Genoa and make it to Rome some time in your life, it is unmissable and should be on everyone´s bucket list! For the lakes, don’t miss the classics of Lake Como and Lake Garda or any other lake in the north of Italy, but those two are truly spectacular. For regions to explore, I recommend Umbria, Tuscany and Süd Tirol (Alto Adige), all personal favorites.
Okay, I may have to stop writing about all the amazing places that your hire car can bring you in Italy! But remember that where ever you go, you will be wowed by beautiful piazza where you can sit and have a cappuccino watching the glamorous Italians strut by in elegant clothes and effortless style with regular calls out of ‘Pronto’ as they answer the phone, or amazed by the country that has more UNESCO World Heritage sites than anywhere else in the world.
