The city of Ribeirão Preto stands in southern Brazil, in the State of Sao Paulo, just under 2 miles north of the state capital. Visitors with a hire car in Ribeirão Preto will discover that it stands in the highlands in the northeast of the State, but forms an important communications hub thanks to road links (including the crucial SP-33 north-south highway linking Sao Paulo with Brasília) and the Doctor Leite Lopes Airport on the northeast outskirts. The university town of Jaboticabal to the west has an acclaimed history museum in an historic mansion and Franca, to the east, has a renowned central square featuring a massive old sundial.
Ribeirão Preto (or 'black stream') has an impressive cultural background, particularly in theatre, film and music. The Pedro II Opera House, with its ornate period façade, is home to one of Brazil's leading symphony orchestras. There's a comprehensive road network, so if you hire a car here in Ribeirão Preto you can tour the city's sights easily. Don't miss the old wooden Municipal Theatre, the towering Cathedral and the intriguing Coffee Museum. Other highlights include the historic Pinguim bar that is famed for its beer throughout the country, the relaxing Botanical Garden, and the family-friendly Bosque Zoo Fabio Barreto.

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.
