Best places to visit in Italy

  • Milan: Known for being one of the most fashionable cities in the world, Milan has an endless number of things to see and do, whether it be climbing to the top of the Duomo di Milano, going shopping at the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II or exploring the Sforzesco Castle. 
  • Rome: A trip to Italy would not be complete without discovering the capital city of Rome. Pay a visit to the iconic Colosseum, go to St. Peter's Basilica, known for being one of the world’s largest churches, or make a wish at the famous Trevi Fountain. 
  • Florence: Art and architecture lovers will be delighted to spend some time in the city of Florence. You won’t want to miss out on going to the Uffizi Gallery to see its Renaissance masterpieces or the medieval Ponte Vecchio bridge that is surrounded by charming jewelry shops. 

Winter in Italy

Take advantage of the fewer crowds and mild climate to discover some of Italy’s main attractions, like the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Vatican City in Rome. If winter sports are your thing, discover the beautiful mountains of the Italian Alps and visit its many resorts to enjoy skiing and snowboarding. Choose a spacious hire car with room for all of your luggage and equipment.

Excellent experience all around! The team at pick up and drop off were the best.

Denise was extremely polite and helpful. One of the things that linked the full experience was first the ease of booking on the Sixt app(highly recommend it!) and then the actual experience at the pickup in Napoli, Italy. I have to commend that I was seamless, smooth and Denise was very patient to explain everything. Even up to the payment she gave a small tip of paying in the local currency. Lastly, when returning the car, I dropped my sunglasses in the backseat when I picked up my medication and only realise when going back to the hotel. Immediately I Whatsapped the Napoli store, she checked it and within an hour replied that her driver found it. Happy joy joy that I have my sunnies! Enjoy folks have a great rental in Napoli!

Rented beginning August 2022 and well looked after by Serena. Fast check-in, clear instructions via email before rental and what to do at drop-off. Also helped that the SIXT desk is in the arrivals hall. Overall a good, efficient experience.
