Verona - the scene of the love story of Romeo and Juliet - is one of the most popular car rental destinations in Veneto. The enchanting city is located in the north of Italy and is easy to reach by car. Either book a direct flight to Airport Valerio Catullo (IATA code: VRN) or arrive by car. The distance between Munich and Verona is a little over 400 km and leads through landscapes worth seeing. You can rent a rental car directly at the airport with a car rental company or book it online in advance. From the airport it is only about 10 km to the city limits.
The enchanting old town of Verona lies in an arc of the Adige. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Italy and has a lot to offer its guests. Visit the picturesque Piazza delle Erbe with its market stalls and typical small cafés. When visiting Verona, a detour to Casa di Romeo and Casa di Giulietta is a must. Verona's Cathedral Santa Maria Matricolare is one of the most famous sights. In the famous Castelvecchio you will find a beautiful and very interesting museum. The Arena di Verona amphitheatre is particularly impressive in the evening. Before the tour of the old town you can safely park your rental car in one of the multi-storey car parks.
Two bridges every visitor should have seen Verona: the Ponte Pietra and the Ponte Scaligero. Both connect the old town with the other bank of the Adige. They offer a beautiful view over the river and the medieval city panorama. Especially in good weather the two bridges are popular motifs for souvenir photos.
With the rental car of the car rental you are quickly on the other bank of the Adige. There is also a lot to discover here. Castel San Pietro is one of the most impressive buildings in the city. From here you have a wonderful view over the city and its surroundings. Right next to the castle of San Pietro is the ancient Teatro Romano di Verona with a museum worth seeing. Another fantastic viewpoint is nearby: The Santuario Madonna di Lourdes is a replica of a pilgrimage church, picturesquely built on a hill
Telephoning without a hands-free car kit and smoking in a rental car if children or pregnant women travel with you are prohibited in Italy. The blood alcohol limit for the driver is 0.5 per mille. Further speed limits are indicated by appropriate information signs. Outside towns and villages, dipped headlights must also be switched on during the day.
If you are travelling by car in the picturesque old town streets of Verona, look out for cyclists and especially pedestrians. Not everywhere there are sidewalks. For longer trips with a rental car to the charming surroundings of Verona, Sunday is convenient. On this day, most trucks in Italy are banned. This will help you get to your destination faster and more relaxed.

Your rental car for the trip to Italy must be adequately insured. Ask your car rental company in good time which insurance benefits are possible and select the appropriate option. In addition, if you rent a rental vehicle, check what obligations you have as a driver and under what circumstances the chosen insurance cover expires. If you take out comprehensive protection of the rental vehicle by a comprehensive insurance, a comprehensive insurance without excess is favourable. This means that unlike fully comprehensive insurance with excess, you do not have to pay anything extra in the event of damage.
With almost all providers a deposit is due when renting a rental vehicle. The deposit is usually automatic. Upon conclusion of the rental agreement, the credit card will be debited with the agreed deposit amount or the corresponding amount will be blocked. After the return you will receive the deposit back. The Bail amount depends on the type of vehicle selected, the country of travel and the car rental company.
If you want to visit other cities in Italy after your visit to Verona, a one-way rental is ideal. one way rental or oneway rental means that you are not dropping off your rental car at the same pick-up point as you left. Especially with larger providers there are numerous possibilities to adjust the contract conditions and the place of delivery to your personal holiday plans. Usually, the car rental company charges a collection fee for the car when renting a one-way vehicle.
Especially for longer car journeys a second driver is practical. The main driver gets longer breaks and can enjoy the journey. You must register a second driver with the car rental before starting the trip. You can do this at the airport when you pick up your car at the rental office. The same regulations as for the main driver apply to the required papers and the minimum age.
