Brindisi is situated in the Puglia region of Italy, not far from Naples. It is world renowned for attracting sun worshippers to its spectacular golden beaches.

The Europcar car rental experience in Brindisi

Europcar Brindisi has an easily accessible station conveniently placed at the main airport. For those travelling in a small party, models such as the Peugeot 208 and Smart ForFour are among our most popular options. For larger groups or families, the Peugeot 3008 or Mercedes C-Class are great choices for more space.

Europcar car hire gives you more freedom during your visit, and the option to pick up and drop off your hire car from different stations gives you complete flexibility when planning your holiday.

Driving in Brindisi

To rent a car in Italy, you must be over the age of 18 and hold a valid EU licence. International driver’s licences are accepted but not obligatory.

The speed limit on motorways is 130 km/h, main roads 110 km/h and secondary roads 90 km/h. Within urban and populated areas this is reduced to between 50-70 km/h.

Blue road signs and markings indicate paid parking zones. White road markings mean parking time is limited but free. Yellow parking bays are reserved for special vehicles, police, disabled etc. In the Old Town, paid parking applies from Monday to Saturday, between 8am to 2pm, and 4pm to 6pm. On Sundays and public holidays, it is usually free to park.

In the historic citadel of Brindisi, there is a ZTL (Zona Traffico Limitato) enforced throughout the week. Only residents or permit holders can enter this zone. Be aware that cameras monitor this area, and you will be fined if you enter without a permit.

In Italy, most of the motorways are toll roads with toll charges payable by cash or credit/debit card. 

When driving in Italy, be aware that there are few petrol stations open on Sundays. Those that are open on Sundays are often closed on Mondays.

Discover Brindisi and its surroundings by car

If you are looking to explore some of Italy’s unrivalled beaches and coastline, Brindisi is the perfect starting point. Explore other coastal towns such as Bari (119 kilometres away) and Monopoli (75 kilometres away) or the expansive beauty of Terra delle Gravine National Park (93 kilometres away). Just inland from Brindisi there are also landscapes like no other, with stunning vineyards and mountainous regions.

Looking for a day trip? Lecce is a gem of the southern coast. Nicknamed ‘Baroque Lecce’ because of its wealth of Baroque architecture, this relaxed but pretty town has a lot to offer day-trippers. There are some great restored museums, hip boutiques and the Basilica di Santa Croce must be visited for its incredible stonework.

Things to see in Brindisi

Popular attractions in Brindisi include the Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli, and the cathedral Basilica of Visitation and St. John the Baptist. For a relaxing end to the day, few places are more attractive than the harbour at sunset - watch the beautiful view with a cold drink at one of the many seafront bars.
