Car hires in Perugia: practical information

Where to rent a car in Perugia

You can’t help but fall in love with Umbria’s capital, Perugia. So it’s no wonder you’re planning a trip there! Once you have your flights to Perugia booked, take a look at the car hire deals. A rental car is the best way to get out and explore the region! Pick one up at the airport, choosing from Hertz, Europcar, Avis, Budget and Auto Europa.

Want to pick up a car hire from the city centre instead? No problem. You’ll find three car hire companies at the train station: Avis, Hertz and Maggiore. They’re open Monday to Friday and with limited hours on Saturdays.

Driving in Perugia: parking and other tips

Perugia is a bit difficult to navigate if it’s your first time visiting. For one thing, much of the city centre is only open to residential and commercial traffic. So you’ll only be able to drive to your Perugia hotel to drop your luggage off and then either use the hotel car park or take your car outside the city centre.

Parking police are a bit more lenient towards rental cars but if you park your car illegally for too long, you risk being towed. Don’t worry though, there are six free car parks in the city with two being very central: Piazza Partigiani and the Mercato Coperto.

Lake Trasimeno

Located in the northwestern part of Umbria, this is the largest lake in central-south Italy. It’s a popular spot in the summer time with tourists who want to swim and camp.

Arguably one of the most beautiful medieval towns in Italy, Gubbio is a must while on holidays in Perugia. The town’s history pre dates Roman times! Don’t miss the Palazzo die Consoli from the 1300s, the Basilica of St. Ubaldo, the 15th century gothic cathedral and the Roman theatre.



Montefalco is a small town in the hills to the south of Perugia that is known for its red wines. What more could you ask for on your trip to Italy? Fine wines and delicious food are guaranteed here! Try the Rosso di Montefalco, a blend of Sangiovese grapes and Sangratino grapes.
