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.
|Whatever you want to do
in Italy, whether it's shopping, touring the sights or learning about the
local culture, you'll find renting a car affords you the ultimate freedom.
The following is a guide to some of the regions most attractive cities

fashionable but timeless, not only is Milan
the capital of the Lombardy region, it is also regarded as one of the world's
most stylish cities. With designer boutiques galore, stunning architecture

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.
