Car hires in Rimini: practical information
Where to rent a car in Rimini
This east-coast city in Italy has been sought after for centuries for its beautiful beaches and coastal atmosphere. It’s no wonder you’re looking at booking flights to Rimini for your holidays! For exploring the region, pick up a Rimini rental car from the airport as soon as you arrive.
You can also pick up your rental car from the city centre. Sixt, Hertz, among others, have offices near the central train station. Compare the offers however, as it may be cheaper to pick up and drop off at the airport.
Driving in Rimini: parking and other tips
Rimini is a pretty small city, with most hotels in Rimini within easy reach of the city’s beaches and coastline. It’s not likely that you’ll need your car hire for hopping over to the beach and back but for trips outside the city limits, a rental car in Rimini is a good idea.
To avoid any sort of headache, make sure your Rimini hotel has a car park available to guests. Some hotels in the city centre will advise guests to use nearby city car parks while hotel/resorts outside the city centre will likely have their own car parks.

The Duke of Urbino was one was the largest palaces built in medieval Italy and today it’s one of the country’s most popular sights outside of Rome. Start your day with a cup of coffee in the Piazza della Republica and then visit the town museum (free). Entry to the Duke’s palace is €4 and a must if you’re in Urbino.
