The city of Campinas stands in the southeast of Brazil. It's in the State of Sao Paulo and about 6 miles northwest of the gigantic state capital. Campinas is served by the Viracopos International Airport that lies eight miles southwest. If you hire a car in Campinas, you'll find that it is surrounded by a lush mountainous region. The highlights to visit here include the spa cities of Serra Negra and Águas de Lindóia. The town of Holambra is a tourist attraction thanks to its mix of heritage from Holland, the States and Brazil. Amazingly, you'll see Dutch bulb fields and windmills here.
Campinas is a centre for high-tech industry but can also boast Santa Geneva Forest: 250 acres of prime rainforest right in the city. If you hire a car here you'll be able to explore all the parts of the city, including Cambui, the smartest residential district with tree-lined cobbled streets and luxury apartment blocks, and the lively university district with its restaurants and bars. There's a lot of local culture to discover, with theatres, galleries and museums. The city even has its own symphony orchestra. Other highlights include a small zoo, a 19th-century cathedral, panoramic views from the public water tower and Lagoa do Taquaral Park, with a boating lake, science museum and swimming pool.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
