    Frequently Asked Questions About Car Hire in Bologna

    Can I hire a car with unlimited mileage in Bologna?

    Travellers hiring a car in Bologna are in luck, as most car hire suppliers allow unlimited mileage hires. However, travellers should be aware that some suppliers will impose mileage restrictions on specific car categories such as luxury and SUV hires.

    Contact Auto Europe - BolognaDo I need an international driver's permit (IDP) to drive in Italy?

    An international driver's permit (IDP) is required to drive in Italy. While some car hire suppliers may not require an IDP to drive your car hire off the lot, Auto Europe still recommends an IDP as there is a chance that some local police officers may issue a ticket to international drivers without an IDP, in the event that you are pulled over.

    In Bologna, you can guarantee a car hire with automatic transmission from the majority of car hire suppliers. Additionally, we encourage you to contact us for assistance if you do not see the automatic transmission option in our booking engine at the top of the page.

    Discovering Bologna

    Once you arrive in the city centre of Bologna, you will soon notice the towers which are often used as the symbol of the city: built in the 12th century and named Asinella and Garisenda, the two towers are a prominent feature of the skyline that offers excellent panoramic views of the city and surrounding area.

    Home to one of the oldest universities in the world, Bologna has always had an emphasis on education, history and the arts: with over 20 museums to choose from, a history or art fan could spend weeks in the city without seeing any of the other sights.

    Explore Bologna Archaeological Museum, where you will see collections from Greek, Roman and Egyptian empires, with many of the items dating back thousands of years. Also located in the city centre is Palazzo Comunale, the city hall that houses grand collections of renaissance art, including paintings and sculptures from several well-known artists. Drive your car hire north to Orto Botanico, one of the major botanical gardens in Bologna or go to the south of the city and visit the Basilica Di San Domenico, decorated with paintings and carvings by many artists, including Michelangelo.

    Bologna is perfect for day trips to several cities which are a comfortable drive away: To the north, you can visit the canals and sights of Venice and to the south are the cities of Florence and Pisa, which are also quite popular.
