Driving to Italy is quite an undertaking. We would recommend it as the journey becomes part of the holiday and there's a real sense of the changing landscape and architecture. It is a completely different experience to flying where one minute you are in the UK and a couple of hours later you are delivered to your destination (or somewhere near it) in an aluminium tube. However, you need to allow a couple of days for the journey, or more if you're headed for the South, so for many people hiring a car at your destination is the realistic option.

A car in Italy really is worth having because there's just so much to see. There is a piece of history around every corner, and because of the shape of Italy, the sea is always reasonably accessible. And many of the most famous sights and towns are not well served by public transport. So for more information on some of the highlights of touring in Italy visit our tourist information for Italy pages. And of course check out the excellent deals offered by our car hire partners.
