Driving in the Tuscany region will give you great advantages in exploring the area more freely at one's own pace, with the ability to reach more remote places that are sometimes inaccessible without transport as public trains/buses can often be limited, or somewhat patchy in more rural locations. This way, travellers can explore the beautiful city of Florence, the historic town of Lucca, or the surrounding Tuscan hills with lush olive groves, vineyards, or the rugged Apennine Mountain range. The Mediterranean coastal route is accessible also. Choose from wide varieties of vehicles to suit a road trip, be it something sporty to zip around coastal cliff roads, or spacious SUVs or 4x4s for a family trip, or when negotiating rougher mountain roads.
Italy has good road networks, especially the Tuscany region which has well-maintained roads. Motorways run on toll systems, but numerous dual carriageways can also be used which connect many towns. Identify the different systems by green signs as motorways, blue as the dual carriageways, with blue also for local roads. Parking zones are also conveniently colour-coded with white as free zones, blue as paid, with yellow markings reserved for residents only. Be aware that some cities restrict non-resident vehicles in busy tourist areas so a vehicle may need to be registered to use them. Drivers should drive on the right-hand side of the road. Remain alert to the numerous mopeds which are constant features on Italian roads. Roads in Italy can seem more aggressive than what you are normally used to, but in general, the conditions are good. It pays to be decisive as well as assertive when behind the wheel.
To hire rental vehicles in Italy, 18 years of age is the minimum age requirement. Drivers under the age of 25 may encounter surcharges when hiring vehicles. Possible restrictions on the categories may also be limited as to what can be hired. Only full valid licences are permitted. Make sure an International Permit has been acquired to comply with EU regulations. Another form of ID such as a passport is advisable. You will also need a credit card to complete the booking.
