Car Hire Brindisi Airport
Find your perfect car hire at Brindisi AirportTouchdown in Italy, and pick up your rental car at Brindisi Airport. As the birthplace of some of the world’s most luxurious cars, it makes sense to hit the road on stylish wheels. It’s time to explore Italy’s stunning Apulia region.
Plan your journey from Brindisi AirportFrom Brindisi Airport it’s just an 11-minute drive to the heart of Brindisi. The city’s roots reach far into antiquity, and its architecture reflects these bygone eras. Gothic and Baroque churches, Roman roads, ancient battlements, and 13th-century castles are yours to explore.
Important historical sites worth visiting include the Castello Rosso, the Red Castle, named for the unusual red stones that were used to build this fortress. The Castello Svevo, also known as the Swabian Castle, is another notable fortress, and is now an important place for cultural events. The intricately-designed Church of San Giovanni al Sepolcro is a must-see, as well as the Roman Column.
Food, as always, is at the heart of Italian living. If you try one thing, make it the region’s speciality: orecchiette, a delicious pasta dish. For a more hands-on approach, visit Brindisi’s daily food market in the Piazza Mercato.
Being on the Adriatic coast, Brindisi also has a busy and beautiful port area. Take a hike up to the Sailor Monument for a 360-degree view of the area before indulging at one of the many cafes, bars, and restaurants. Come here to soak up the Mediterranean vibes before heading off on your road trip around the Apulia region.
Beyond BrindisiApulia is also known as ‘Puglia’ or the ‘heel of Italy’s boot.’ Its constant favourable weather makes it ideal for exploring all year-round, and its charms are immeasurable. You’ll find out for yourself with your hire car from Brindisi Airport.
Head north from Brindisi on SS379, and you’ll hit Ostuni in less than 40 minutes. Known as the ‘white city’, this whitewashed old town is a maze of cobblestoned streets and narrow alleyways. If you’re visiting at the end of August, you’ll experience the annual Cavalcata di Sant’Oronzo festival, in honour of the town’s patron saint.
From Brindisi, Lecce is just a 30-minute drive via the Strada Statale 613/SS613. This place is known as the ‘Florence of the south’ thanks to its historic sites and a stunning 2nd-century Roman amphitheatre that is still used today. For Baroque architecture, check out the Piazza del Duomo and the Basilica di Santa Croce.
If it’s a truly unique experience you’re after, travel to Alberobello, a Unesco World Heritage site. Its claim to fame is its unique and somewhat strange, whitewashed homes with conical rooftops. Alberobello is just an hour by car from Brindisi, via route SS379.
