Should I rent a car in Italy?
My sister and I are heading to Italy for an extended vacation. Do we need to rent a car while we’re there? Or will public transportation be good enough?
Answer provided by
Italy is a beautiful country—you and your sister are sure to have a wonderful time on your trip. Whether you should rent a car in Italy depends on where you plan to go.
You should rent a car in Italy to see these locations, as well as any rural parts of the country:
- Puglia, Calabria, Basilicata
- Sicily and Sardinia
- The Dolomites
However, don’t waste money on a rental if you plan to spend your time in Rome, Venice, Bologna, Florence, Milan, or Naples.
Once you’ve determined whether or not you should rent a car for your Italian adventure, check to make sure you have rental car insurance either through your own car insurance or through a credit card.
