May 3, 2008
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.

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 and how to get to them!

Bergamo

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.

Pavia

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.
