Italy Self-Drive Tours
Ancient empires, birthplace of the Renaissance, and food celebrated the world over. Make your way around the iconic sights and varied landscapes of Italy on your own time.
Centuries of history, unfolding in every quaint turn, quiet hill, and charming road. Explored at your own pace, in your own time. So you can go from relaxing along the lakes of Northern Italy to sipping wine in the Tuscan countryside to walking the footsteps of gladiators in the Colosseum, if that’s what suits your mood. In Italy, you’ll want to follow the road less traveled and discover what’s off-the-beaten-path. Brimming with deep history and stunning landscapes, driving yourself around is the best way to make the journey your own. Let’s see where the road takes you.

Many overseas rental agencies charge a premium for automatic cars. If you’re used to driving an automatic at home, we recommend renting an automatic. You’ll have enough on your mind without worrying about stalling the engine.
An International Driving Permit (IDP) is required in Italy to rent a car along with your valid US license. Italy uses the metric system, so the speeds are different (kilometers per hour vs. miles per hour).
