Arguably the world's most celebrated tourist destination, Italy really does have it all. It boasts one of the most diverse and beautiful landscapes in Europe, the world's greatest hoard of art treasures (on display in fittingly spectacular cities and buildings), a climate that is on the whole benign and mild and most important of all for many, a delicious and authentic national cuisine, made all the more alluring by the depth and breadth of its regional variation. After visiting, it's possible that you may not ever want to travel anywhere else.
No doubt you’ve heard that Italian drivers are crazy, so it might be that the last thing in the world you want to think about is renting a car in Italy and sharing the roads with them.
While it’s true that Italian drivers can be, shall we say, creative at times, sometimes the easiest way to get where you want to go – especially if your destinations are a little off the beaten path – is to rent your own set of wheels.
If you’re really apprehensive about driving in Italy, just make sure to avoid the big cities and you’ll be much happier.
While some people will say otherwise, it’s a very good idea to get an International Driver’s License if you are considering renting a car in Italy.
