Art, history and grandeur 

Pisa, Italy - Leaning Tower of Pisa - Pisa Airport car hire
Leaning Tower of Pisa

From the Leaning Tower of Pisa to the Colosseum in Rome and the neoclassical centre of Florence, there is something incredibly grand about lots of Italy's architecture. For someone who loves the classics, Italy is place to be. Italy gave us Leonardo da Vinci, Michaelangelo and Botticelli - hundreds of years later, they're still some of the most well known and well loved artists in the world.

 

Rome car hire

Monuments and architecture tell a story of an ancient city. And they're all relatively easy to enjoy with some comfortable shoes and a map of Rome's historic city centre. Located in the middle of Italy's boot, Rome makes a great starting point for exploring other parts of Italy too.

Italy's renaissance heart - Florence is less a town and more a big open-air museum. But it's also home to world class museums like the ever popular Uffizi. The capital of Tuscany, a visit to Florence shouldn't be without the joys of a drive in the Tuscan countryside finished off with a glass of vino rosso or bianco. You can also contrast the renaissance of Florence with the medieval of surrounding towns like San Gimignano.

Pisa car hire

The most famous of Italy icons lives here… and it really does have a very good lean!

An hour's drive east will get you to Florence whilst an hour's drivenorth along the coast will get you to the spectacular Cinque Terre. See more on Pisa and the surrounding area in our Pisa blog posts.

Venice and Verona car hire

As well as grandeur, there is the air of romance in Venice's St Mark's Square (or Piazza San Marco).   Park your Italy car hire and take a water taxi along its many canals. Do also make the most of your Italy car hire in the Veneto region by getting off the beaten track to see remnants of the area's medieval history in towns including Treviso and Bassano del Grappa. More romance can be found with a trip to Verona - the city Shakespeare set Romeo and Juliet in.

Lose yourself by the sea

Puglia, Italy - Gallipoli views in the old town - Brindisi Airport car hire
Gallipoli in Salento

Head to Italy's south to bathe in warm and crystal clear waters. Aside from some pretty marvellous beaches, you'll also find rustic charm in small town life. Love the coast? Try a Brindisi car hire for Salento, a Naples car hire for the Amalfi Coast or a Pisa car hire to discover the Cinque Terre.

 

Naples car hire

Colourful houses perch on dramatic cliffs with panoramic views of the Mediterranean. Seriously, does life get better than this? Enjoy the Amalfi Coast with a Naples car hire. Don't forget to actually stop in Naples either so you can sample a proper Napoli pizza!

Puglia car hire

Slow right down and enjoy calm waters and feast on seafood in quant fishing villages in Salento and Puglia. Italy's heel also has some really rather interesting historical architecture that's a world away from the landmarks Italy's most famous for. Take the centuries old sassi in Matera that are cave like dwellings or the white washed buildings with conical roofs in Alberobello for instance. For more ideas, see our Salento blog posts.

Fly to Italy's north over winter for lots of snow-packed fun in the Alps and Dolomites. Numerous ski resorts are easily accessible with a Italy car hire. The fun doesn't have to end with warmer weather either, the mountainous north makes for a great summer destination especially if you're a keen walker or just really like breathing in mountain fresh air. Aside from the mountains here, the north of Italy also boasts some pretty fabulous lakeside retreats. Well, if Lake Como is good enough for the likes of George Clooney and Brad Pitt, I reckon it could be okay for me too!

Away from Italy's boot, the islands of Sicily and Sardinia are difficult to ignore

Sicily car hire

Sicily is as famous for its history of organised crime as it is for its incredible beaches (Rabbit beach on Lampedusa, one of the tiny islands in Sicily was recently voted as the number one beach in the world by Tripadvisor reviewers). It's also home to Mount Etna, Italy's largest active volcano. Rather than it be something to fear, however, it just provides visitors with a spectacular backdrop. Explore more with a Catania Airport car hire, Palermo Airport car hire or Trapani Airport car hire.

Sardinia car hire

Sardinia feels like a different country due to its relative remoteness to the rest of the country. But a little isolation when you can find unspoilt beaches and breathtaking views at Costa Verde and the protected Costa del Sud is exactly what you'll want. Explore the island best with a Sardinia car hire. We've got locations including Cagliari Airport car hire, Olbia Airport car hire and Alghero Airport car hire.
