Friendly welcoming locals and great nearby beaches, along with loads of great historical sites make Latina an interesting and worthwhile place to visit, and with your rental car, the options for day trips are virtually endless! Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Latina is both easy and economical.
A relatively young city, Latina was founded in the 1930s, when surrounding swamps were drained and made into usable land. Often overlooked by nearby Rome, holidaying here has the added advantage of much smaller crowds, and far less traffic, making it an ideal base for a driving holiday in a hire car. You can see the sights of Rome then return to the peace and quiet of Latina, while still enjoying all the comforts of a modern city.
If you are travelling here in summer, then a trip to the nearby beaches are a must. Simply jump in your rental car and head west of the city, where you will soon reach the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. With Roughly 100k of beaches to choose from, it's a simple as cruising along until you find a spot that suits you and settling in for a day in the sun.
A truly unique attraction to visit in this area is located just north of the city on the site that was once the Roman town of Ninfa. The town was abandoned in the 1800s, however, in the 20th century, the ruins were converted into a beautiful botanical garden, which attracts more and more visitors each year. Ancient lanes, walls and bridges covered in all manner of colourful plants and flowers make this a special place indeed, with many visitors declaring that this is the most beautiful garden they have ever seen!
Drive your hire car south of Latina towards the town of Terracina, which is located on the coastline just a short trip away. Medieval buildings and Roman Remands make the town definitely worth a visit, and this is also the departure point for cruises to the Pontine Islands. Barely developed since medieval times, these magnificent volcanic islands are home to small communities with gardens and vineyards, and exploring the shoreline you will find loads of secluded beaches and caves, a truly undisturbed part of the world!
