A small town in north-central Italy, Imola has a rich history dating back to 82 BC when it is said to have been founded. With a deep culture and plenty of attractions to visit such as the Rocca Sforzesca, many visitors here seem to agree that getting a car rental is the best way to make good use of your stay in the town.
Benefits of Car Hire
Not to imply that the public transport system or taxis within the town are not reliable; but there are vast advantages of touring a new location using a car hire vehicle. Such advantages include:
- You get to plan the timings of your tours and this is especially beneficial if your visit to Imola is not purely for pleasure and y may have other matters to take care of.
- Why get tied down by bus schedules? Stay out as late as you wish as long as you have your personal car rental.
- Renting a car will in the long run be much cheaper than getting a taxi. And pus taxi operators tent to take advantage of foreigners by overcharging them.
- With a rental vehicle you get to enjoy some personal space; as is not the case with public transport.
