Renting a Car

two questions - can you answer them? coming from the united states, what measures must i take to legally drive in Italy? do I need a special license?

and secondly, what have you found is the best way to get a good rate over in Naples? I have never rented internationally.

Thank you so much

There is really no international license per say but you should go to AAA and get the international permit they offer, then you will also have to make sure you have your US drivers license with you. If you are stopped it is best you have both. I just used carjet.com for a week in Spain and the rates are unbelievable, $147. for a week w/no extra charges for anything !! I have not used it in Italy though, but it ios worth checking out ! Be aware though it is next to impossible to park in Naples unless your hotel offers it and most do not so check on that first. Have a wonderful time in a wonderful city !!

Check with consolidators like autoeurope. Renting a car in Italy is expensive, and it's advisable to take the CDW offered by the rental company, even if you are covered by your own credit card.
