Situated in the north of Italy, under the shadow of the Alps, the Lombardy region is home to some of the most spectacular sights in Italy. From the banks of the shimmering Lake Como to the glitzy streets of Milan, car hire offers myriad magical touring possibilities. There are many reasons why renting a car in Italy makes sense. One good reason is that many of the country's most spectacular sights can't be reached with public transport.

What's more, renting a car in Lombardy allows you to stop and start your journey wherever and whenever you wish. Enjoy the Dolce Vita at a pace that suits you. Car hire allows you to make the most of your Italy travel experience, especially if you haven't got much time to spend.

Monte Generoso

The dramatic peaks of Monte Generoso make for an exciting Lombardy car hire excursion.

Breathtaking views of lakes Lugano, Como, Varese and Maggiore can be enjoyed from the top.

Probably most famous for its dazzling lakes, Como is by far the region's most popular holiday resort and deservingly so. No visit to Como should be considered complete without a boat trip on the beautiful Lake Como.

Nestling in the foothills of the Alps, the pretty town of Bergamo is renowned for its artistic heritage and unspoilt natural beauty and a piazza that is considered by many to be the most attractive in the whole of Italy. It's a town of contrasts too, half modern and bustling, half ancient and bohemian, Bergamo car hire allows you to explore whichever aspect takes your fancy.


Renowned for its elegant Certosa (Carthusian Monastery), Pavia is a town rich in history and culture. The town itself dates back to Roman times, but it is its charming medieval character that captivates most visitors.
