Enjoy the bella vita in a hire car: Italy close-up
This country on the Mediterranean has everything you can ever want. Great food, good wines and emerald green sea with white beaches – where the Italians, too, spend their holidays in August. It is best to discover the diversity of Italy in an economic hire car from TUI Cars. Starting in the north in the Italian Alps drive south in your hire car past Turin to the port city of Genoa to take the car ferry to Sardinia, an island with a Caribbean-like feel. The capital of Rome is always worth a trip and with its numerous car rental outlets it is the perfect starting point to see local sights, like the Vatican. The Mediterranean climate is best enjoyed in the south, for instance, in Calabria, the “boot” of the Italian mainland. From there, it is easy to take the hire car on a ferry to Sicily. Another great option is a circular tour of Italy in a hire car from TUI Cars, a marvellous way of enjoying the delights and diversity of this country. By the way: Cheap apartments and holiday homes in Italy can be found on atraveo.
Venice is truly unique. This city in the north-east of Italy is only accessible by waterways. Small wonder that Venice is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From the airport you can drive to the city in your hire car pre-booked at TUI Cars, and from there you continue into the iconic Venice in a water taxi. A special highlight is the traditional carnival of Venice, which starts 10 days before Ash Wednesday on the Piazza San Marco. This colourful spectacle with its extraordinary costumes is definitely worth the experience.
As they say, all roads lead to Rome. The largest city in Italy is exceptionally rich in important architectural monuments. UNESCO declared the old town of Rome, St Peter's Basilica and the Vatican City a World Cultural Heritage Site. Drive around the centre of the Rome in style with a 360-degree-view in your hired cabriolet and follow your intuition. Particularly noteworthy is the Colosseum, the legendary landmark of the city. If you want your wishes to come true, then you have to visit the Trevi Fountain (and make a wish).
The pulsating modem metropolis in the north of Italy is well worth a trip. In your pre-booked hire car from TUI Cars you can reach the Alps in a few hours. Stop off in Turin in your hire car. The city – home to the headquarters of Fiat – invites you to stroll and amble around its tree-line boulevards and admire its architectural heritage. If you don’t feel like negotiating the narrow streets by car, then simply visit our scooter rental outlet in Milan and cruise the streets the Italian way.
