What to see in Bologna and nearby

Bologna and its surrounding municipalities are located in Emilia-Romagna, a scenic Italian region with a long and rich history. Bologna is the largest city and the heart of the region, and the perfect home base for exploring the country. It is simple to hire a car here, and then visit neighbouring Renaissance cities such as Modena, Parma and Ferrara. You can go on day trips to visit the Villa San Donnino in Modena, or the Teatro Farnese in Parma, for example, and then return to Bologna in the evening, taking advantage of the region's well-maintained highways and roads.

Bologna itself is a large city, and having a car rental at your disposal makes it easy to stay at an affordable hotel outside the centre, and then drive in to sightsee during the day. Bologna has one of the most impressive historic centres in Italy, and features sights such as the famous Towers of Bologna, and the University of Bologna, the oldest university in Europe.

Having access to a car hire will enable you to visit the beautiful beaches of Rimini and Riccione, located an hour's drive to the east, on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. The country around Bologna has so much to offer, from these coastal resorts to the ancient inland towns, and the stunning mountains of the Apennines, and if you make good use of a car hire you won't miss out on anything. If you hire a car with Sixt you will be ready to embark on the Italian adventure of a lifetime.

This car rental experience was as excellent as the previous one. I appreciated the professional and friendly customer service at Sixt Autonoleggio Bologna stazione centrale. Sixt representative was proactive in meeting my needs as a customer and built up the rental package in line with my specific requirements. The rented car was excellent, the car pick-up and return were smooth and efficient.
