What is an Italy fly-drive?

On an Italy fly-drive holiday, you’ll fly into your chosen destination and pick up your hire car at the airport, before beginning your self-drive adventure. 

Nothing beats the freedom of self-drive holidays in Italy. Some of the country’s most beautiful destinations and hidden gems are best discovered by car; lesser-known regions, undiscovered beaches and acres of quiet countryside will be at your disposal. It means your itinerary can be flexible – you can linger in your favourite destinations or pack in as much as you like, since there’s no need to rely on public transport or keep up with a group.

Arranging a fly-drive in Italy is easy. We’ll help book your hire car and arrange the itinerary, and at the end of your holiday, simply drop your car off at the airport and catch your flight home. If your fly-drive holiday is a multi-centre, you can leave your hire car at whichever airport you depart from – there’s no need to return it to the same place.  


Our most popular Italy driving holidays

Need some ideas? These are the most popular Italy road trips on our books. They include suggestions on how long to spend in each destination, plus what you can see while you’re there. The itineraries are completely flexible, though – you can tweak them to your exact requirements. Just give our Italy Experts a call to work out the details. 


This 12-day fly-drive covers the highlights of Sicily, one of the largest islands in the Med, with its patchwork of historic towns, quiet coastlines and natural wonders like Mount Etna.

One of the most famous landscapes in the country, spend a week exploring Tuscany’s hilly wine regions, with food-filled stops in Renaissance cities like Florence and Pisa. 

Two of southern Italy’s lesser-known regions, this twin-centre will take you through the undiscovered hilltop towns of Basilicata and around Calabria’s ruggedly beautiful coastline. 

Take a spin around undiscovered southern Italy with a road trip through Puglia (a fabulous food and wine region), and onto the unique UNESCO-listed towns of Basilicata.

In 10 days you’ll cover the north and south of the island of Sardinia. The south is all about the Caribbean-style beaches, while the north is wilder. You can even visit neighbouring islands like Corsica.

This self-drive in the Italian countryside includes Tuscany’s renowned Chianti wine region, cultural gems Florence and Perugia, and a day exploring spectacular Lake Trasimeno. 

Spend two weeks exploring Italy’s lesser-known south by car, including the spectacular coastlines of Calabria and Cilento, the unique landscapes of Basilicata and the baroque cities of Puglia.
