Historic Bologna is over 2,500 years old, and the surrounding area is perfect for car rental holidays. As Capital of the Emilia-Romagna Region, its picturesque provinces offer much to car rental tourists.
Bologna is a thriving business city and an important university town, and has an elegant red brick city-centre. When you've finished exploring on foot, it's time to make the most of your car rental with a tour of the attractions outside the city.
The Emilia-Romagna Region is split into two parts, with Emilia to the west and Romagna to the east of Bologna. The eastern part stretches out to the Adriatic Sea and the ancient town of Ravenna. It's here that car rental users will find the impressive Basilica of Saint Apollinare in Classe, an outstanding early Christian basilica.
Next stop along the eastern road for car rental travellers is the popular resort of Rimini. The town is home to the 'Italy in Miniature' theme park, which provides a great day out for the whole family. In general, the roads in this region are good, and it is a pleasure to explore the area's scenic landscapes, pretty villages and numerous vineyards.
For car rental tourists who enjoy their food and wine, it's good to know that the area around Bologna is considered to be a gastronomic paradise. You can use car rental to tour the many working vineyards in the region, which produce fine wines such as Lambrusco, Pinto, Chardonnay and Cabernet.
We also advise taking a car rental trip to the 'Galleria Ferrari' in Maranello. This fascinating museum charts the history of the prancing horse brand since the first car was produced in 1947.
