Break up your trip into regions. You could start north, in the fashion capital of Milano, and look out for those beautiful shoes and clothes that this city is famous for. Tour the countryside and discover the beautiful town of Verona where you will find the infamous Juliet's balcony. Venice can be your next stop for a day of touring the canal and the maze-like city. While you're at it you can visit St. Mark's square and feed the mass amount of pigeons found here.

Head south and stop over at Genoa, one of Italy's largest cities and the largest port in Italy. Watch the magnificent cruise ships leave from the beautiful city. And if you have some time, why not leave on a Mediterranean cruise from this port.

Discover the Italian countryside and journey to Bologna, a thriving Tuscan metropolis. Thereafter, visit the stunningly historic city of Florence. Full of vibrant nightlife and magnificent buildings Florence is sure to take your breath away. Don't forget to make a quick stop and head on over to Pisa - yes, be a tourist and take a photo of yourself holding up that leaning tower. Or if castles are more your taste head over to the Republic of San Marino and view the stunning fortress of Guaita.

A must on your list is the Italian capital, Rome. Visit iconic places such as the Vatican and the Colosseum. Don't forget to make a wish at the Trevi foundation - it may just come true.

Are you a lover or the natural wonders? Witness the sheer size and potential power of active volcano Mt. Vesuvius in Naples as you walk around the ruins of Pompeii.

As you approach lower Italy you will drive through stunning cities including Messina, Palermo, Calabria and Sicily. The coastal regions offer amazing views as well as delightful Mediterranean cuisine - that's if the scenic drive doesn't completely distract you.

When renting a car from Car Hire Brokers, we will ensure that you will be able to pick-up the car from the most convenient point for you in Italy. However, knowing the rules of the road will be helpful when touring around. The first rule to remember is that in Italy, cars drive on the right side of the road and pass on the left. Speed limits on most highways are 80mph whilst speed limits through the town are 30mph. All passengers are required to wear seatbelts and children under 12 years may not sit in the front of any vehicle. Should you get an unfortunate traffic fine, note that all visitors to Italy must pay all fines at the same time that it was issued.

Get ready for a trip of a lifetime. Nothing says freedom like hiring your own car and exploring at leisure. Let Car Hire Brokers make your grand Italian dreams become a reality.
