Why rent a car in Brindisi?

Brindisi is a great place to explore by car. Cozy, historic, and located near a number of world-class beaches, the city is a worthy destination in its own right, but it can also serve as a great base for exploring the rest of beautiful and untamed Southern Italy.

Top ways to enter Brindisi

  • Brindisi Airport. Like many other Italian airports, Brindisi is especially active during the summer months when the number of airlines that it is served by rises to 15. Brindisi sees many domestic flights and also has air routes to the United Kingdom, Germany, Poland, and other European countries. Also known as Salento Airport, it is located just north of the city center.
  • Bari Airport. Also known as Palese Airport and Karol Wojtyla Airport (after Pope John Paul II), Bari Airport is the largest in the region of Apulia. Brindisi is just 90 minutes drive south along the Adriatic Coast.
  • Lamezia Terme Airport. Serving the resort town of Lamezia Terme in the nearby Calabria region, this small airport is served by a number of airlines, including some low-cost carriers. It is about a three-and-a-half hour drive southwest of Brindisi.
  • Naples Airport. One of the fastest-growing airports in Italy, Naples-Capodichino sees almost 10 million travelers every year. With flights by a large number of airlines and located just three-and-a-half hours northwest of Brindisi, it can serve as a good entry point to Southern Italy.

Useful city facts

Like much of the rest of Southern Italy, Brindisi enjoys a hot and pleasant Mediterranean climate. In July and August, the average temperature is 26 °C  (78 °F) and often much higher. Even in January and February, the temperature rarely drops below 10 °C  (50 °F). Summers are generally dry, although a bit more humid than in many other cities in the region.

Even in a country like Italy, Brindisi stands out for its delicious cuisine. Ricotta and other cheeses, bluefish and other sea products, and snails are some of the products used in the foods cooked by the skilled Brindisi chefs.

Top destinations and activities

  • Roman Columns. Like many cities in Italy, Brindisi is rich in ancient Roman heritage. One of the best examples of this is the city’s Roman columns. One of them collapsed almost 500 years ago and its ruins were donated to a neighboring city, but the other is still standing, making it one of the most famous landmarks of Brindisi.
  • Santa Maria del Casale. About to celebrate its 700th birthday in 2022, this one is the most famous of Brindisi’s many churches. It can be easily recognized by its facade made of gray and yellow stones, and the gothic church is just as beautiful from the inside as it is from the outside thanks to its many impressive frescoes.
  • The Beaches. Let’s face it - even though Brindisi is rich in ancient and medieval history, its number one attraction is its long and beautiful coastline. There’s plenty to choose from, to. The fun Lido Morelli Beach, the tranquil Lido Specchiolla, the rugged Torre Pozzelle and many other beaches dot the area. Although many of these beaches are not located in Brindisi, but in the nearby villages, all of them can be easily and quickly reached by a rental car.

Traffic and parking tips

  • The speed limit in cities is 50 km/h, although in certain areas the speed limit may be reduced to 30 km/h. 
  • Main highways have speed limits of 130 km/h, non-major highways of 110 km/h, and local roads of 90 km/h. During the rain, the limits are lowered to 110 km/h, 100 km/h, and 80 km/h, respectively. The general speed limit is lowered to 50 km/h during heavy fog or other cases of bad visibility.
  • The insurance and car documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
  • If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
  • The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.00% for novice drivers. Being over the allowed limit can result in hefty fines and even imprisonment. 
  • The emergency number, like elsewhere in the EU, is 112.

Toll roads

There are numerous toll roads and tunnels in Italy. The exact fee depends on the route of your choice and the type of a vehicle. 

There are different payment methods for tolls, including cash and credit card. Some rental cars in Italy might also be equipped with an electronic prepaid card called Viacard or with an electronic toll road transponder. Car rental providers might charge an additional fee for this service. Ask the car rental provider about it before renting the car. If you miss a toll payment, you can still pay for it online. If you take longer than 15 days, however, additional charges will be added to the fee. Read more about missed toll payments in Italy and how to pay for them later here.  

See the official Italian toll road website for more information. Use the website’s toll road calculator to find out exactly how much you’ll have to pay for using the toll roads on your planned route.  

Ideas for a day-trip

  • Bari. The capital of Apulia is famous for its basilicas, beaches, and food that’s considered outstanding even by Italian standards. Its narrow streets create a historic atmosphere, but with a metropolitan population of 1 million, it is also one of the largest cities in Southern Italy. From Brindisi, it can be reached in just 1 hour and 20 minutes by car.
  • Lecce. Sometimes called “the Florence of the south” thanks to its beautiful baroque architecture, Lecce is also home to an impressive Roman amphitheater and an archeological park. After taking in all the mighty history, try Pasticciotto Leccese, the city’s trademark cake (although make sure it’s still in the morning as that’s when locals eat it!). Lecce is just half an hour’s drive from Brindisi.
  • Terra Delle Gravine Nature Park. Just an hour-and-a-half drive west of Brindisi, this mountainous natural area is a great place to spend a day outdoors. Walking through its wooded ravines is a very relaxing experience. The nature reserve is home to many birds of prey, badgers, wild boar, and other types of animals.

Most popular rental types and cars

The most popular rental car types in Brindisi are economy, compact, and mini. If you plan to travel to the nearby mountains or natural areas, getting an intermediate or full-size vehicle might be a good idea. The most popular rental cars are the Peugeot 108, the Fiat Panda, and the Opel Corsa.

Further destinations

  • Naples. The city living in the shadow of Pompeii, the home of the largest historic center in Europe, and the world capital of pizza, Naples is simply a  stunning destination. History, attractions, and things to do abound here, and, should you ever grow overwhelmed, you can easily escape to one of the nearby islands in the Mediterranean. Naples is about a four hour drive northwest of Brindisi.
  • Rome. The Eternal City has plenty of classical, Roman, and even pre-Roman landmarks and museums making it one of the most impressive historic destinations in the world (that’s even without mentioning Vatican City). What is less known is that Rome is also a modern metropolis where even those oblivious to ancient history can find plenty to entertain themselves, from modern arts scene to beaches, shopping opportunities, and any cuisine imaginable. Regardless of which type you are, you’ll most likely enjoy your time here. Rome is about six hours northwest of Brindisi.
  • Sicily. As proud as it is hospitable, Italy’s largest island is one of the most unique places in Europe. It’s cities date back millennia, having seen Greek, Arab, Norman, and other rulers, and its rugged landscape will leave even experienced travelers breathless. Although getting there from Brindisi means a five hour drive and a ferry ride, the long trip is most definitely worth it.

It’s pretty essential to have a car as we spend a lot of time there having a holiday home , loads of places to visit , just watch out for all the new parking restrictions in most places ......and a Huge sign but not easily understood in Gallipoli , if you go into the old town with your car you will get a fine .....plus an admin charge from some rental companies.
