Car Hire in Italy

With a wide range of airport, railway and downtown car rental locations to choose from, book car hire in Italy to discover the country’s beautiful coastlines, historic cities and romantic landscapes.

Explore Florence and take a road trip down to Rome

Florence was the cradle of the Renaissance and is still reputed as being one of the most culturally rich cities in the world. Home to Michaelangelo’s David, the Uffizi gallery and the famous Ponte Vecchio, you won’t run out of landmarks to discover in daytime. In the evening, mingle with the locals and unwind in any of the intimate Santo Spirito area’s restaurants and bars.

Once you have explored the city, Florence becomes the perfect gateway to discovering the Tuscan countryside and a breathtaking road trip down to Rome. Pick up your rental car and steer off to Pisa to catch a glimpse of the leaning tower, discover the fascinating medieval town of Siena, and, before arriving in Rome, be sure to take a break in the picturesque Umbrian hill town of Orvieto.

Update your wardrobe in Milan

Italy’s capital of style, visit Milan’s ‘Golden Rectangle’ and spoil yourself with designer shopping. Or, you can play it low key and visit the vintage stores that dot the Navigli waterways in the south of the city. Don’t be fooled though, Milan is far from being without cultural landmarks: don’t miss seeing Da Vinci’s masterpiece, the Last Supper, and climb to the top of Milan’s impressive Duomo for a bird’s eye view of terra cotta rooves shrinking below impressive skyscrapers.

If you feel like driving out further, neighbouring lakes and national parks make for a fantastic road trip from Milan. Pick up a rental car and head to Lake Como, flanked by rocky mountain landscape and impressive villas, or Lake Maggiore, Italy’s largest lake. Push on through the mountainous Dolomites region for incredible vistas best seen by car.

Get some sun in Naples & on the Amalfi Coast

Take to Italy’s coastal roads in Southern Italy and discover Naples, famous for top of the range pizza and coffee, even by Italian standards. The city’s contemporary art scene will also satisfy, with two large contemporary art museums to discover, and quirky exhibitions in a number of the city’s metro stations. In the evening, party in the sand at any of Naples’ established beach clubs.

Having explored the city, drive your rental car south, not without stopping to take in Mount Vesuvius and ancient Pompeii and Herculaneum, trapped in time after being buried in volcanic ash. Catch incredible sights of the Mediterranean from the Amalfi coast’s winding, precipitous roads, and make stops in the picture perfect towns of Salerno and Ravello.
