Experience Italy

DriveAway Holidays makes hiring your car in Italy easy and affordable. Start your journey by picking up your hire car in one of the 400 depots we have located throughout the major airport, cities, railway stations and regional areas of Italy.

In the North you will find the impressive Italian Alps, along with vibrant cities such as Genoa, Milan and Bologna, each home to impressive sights and attractions, as well as slightly varied cultures unique to the area. One city in particular not to be missed here is Venice, located on the north east coast.

Central Italy is arguably the most popular part of the country. Here you can visit Rome, complete with ancient ruins of the Pantheon and Colosseum, the Spanish Steps, and the Vatican. Rome is one of the most visited cities in the world, and you can collect your rental car downtown, or at either of the airports, and be off to see the sights as soon as you arrive.

Down in the south, Italy is different once again. Here you will find the cities of Naples, Bari and Brindisi, as well as the island of Sicily, home to Catania and Palermo. The beaches in this region are particularly scenic and perfectly suited for a driving holiday, with your hire car you can cruise along the coastline and find yourself the perfect stretch of sand.
