    Italy Car Hire Fleet Options

    Once home to of one the world’s mightiest empires, modestly-sized Italy still leaves an empire-sized boot-print on the world via cuisine and culture. Rome still houses many marks of the glory days, such as the Colosseum and the Forum, which attract visitors from across the globe. In Venice and Florence, the Italian dedication to art and finery that brought such riches during the Renaissance is still apparent, where it lurks around every corner. Other historical delights, like Pompeii and Herculaneum, are easily reached, while the Tuscan countryside can provide the perfect setting to sample any of Italy’s delicious culinary exports amid cypress and chestnut trees. Mediterranean destinations like Bari and Fiumicino provide relaxing respite from the stresses of working life, while one of the world’s great road trips – the Amalfi coast – can be easily enjoyed from Naples, Sorrento or Positano. With an Auto Europe car hire you have the freedom to explore at your own pace and ultimate peace of mind. We’ve been in the business since 1954 and have excellent relationships with the most reliable local and international suppliers of car hire in Italy. This means our customers receive the lowest prices on the market! We have compiled this fleet guide to help you navigate what each of the different car categories on offer entail.
