I am flying into Italy with my husband and 2 friends to go on holiday. We are landing in the north and leaving from Brindisi airport in the south. We plan to spend a few days in/near Venice, and then want to make our way to Apulian to be there on a Saturday to meet the agent for our holiday apartment rental.
I have looked up flights and Ryanair fly out on Saturdays from Bologna to Brindisi and that could work for us, but I have this romantic notion of renting a car and driving down through Italy to Apulian. Has anyone done a one-way rental in Italy and if so, what would you advice, or what tips would give me?
Cost wise they are not that different, a one way rental with on Car-Booker.com is € 520.87 for 15 days, so I could also have the car when I am in Apulian. Flights are a little more expensive at first glance, but then I haven´t calcuated in fuel or Motorways on the car rental price.
Am I being a romantic, or am I mad?!!
