    Car hire at Verona Airport - Exploring Northern Italy

    Verona Airport (also known as Villafranca or sometimes Catullo Airport) is one of the main travel hubs for the central regions of northern Italy. Located just 12 km (about 15 minutes) south-west of the city, it is the preferred gateway for the growing number of travellers visiting the provinces of Bolzano, Brescia, Mantua, Rovigo, Vicenza, Trento and Verona.

    Close to four million passengers fly in and out of Verona Airport every year, making it one of the busiest airports in Italy. It started life as a military airport during World War 1 and grew into a popular commercial air transportation facility following World War 2. Subsequent enlargements and development programmes have seen it emerge into a modern hub for people looking to visit explore the northern regions of Italy by car.

    Although Verona is full of ancient history, it's well in tune with modern times. The city is a magical place where art and culture come together to provide visitors with the most memorable moments, such as watching a concert in its 2,000-year-old Roman arena or standing below the world's most famous balcony from Shakespeare's popular play, Romeu and Juliet. It's also the gateway to a vast region of unparalleled tourist destinations, including Venice, Lake Garda and Padua, all quickly and easily accessible to anyone with a car hire in Verona.
