- Italian drivers are often, let’s say, slightly on the aggressive side, so prepare to be overtaken in all kinds of inappropriate places. Leave plenty of braking distance ahead of you and keep a close eye on the rearview mirror.
- Don’t get lost and end up arguing in your hire car – it’s a real holiday downer. Ideally, bring your own satnav and buy a detailed road map of the area in advance. Lake Garda car rental companies sometimes provide sub-standard maps, so bringing your own will avoid navigation blips – and the ensuing silent treatment!
- If you’re taking a day trip to Venice, be prepared to pay through the nose for parking. All of the public car parks near the waterbus terminals charge phenomenal fees, just because they can. Sadly, there’s no other option, so suck it up and get in a gondola.
