Santos is one of the most famous cities in Brazil and there are a number of reasons why. It has some of the most glorious beaches in the country, something Brazil is famous for as a nation. Another is that Brazilian football legend Pelé played for the local football team, Santos Futebol Club, there is a statue erected in the city in his honour. The city also made the Guinness World Records for the largest beachfront ornamental garden. You can drive the length of the coastline if you hire a car in Santos, there are plenty of parking spots along the front to give you chance to have a beach day on your trip.
The Beach Edge Gardens are an award winning feature of the area, these are a must on your trip to Santos, and you can have a relaxing afternoon in the sun here and enjoy the beautiful natural vegetation. One of the most beautiful churches here, which is also located on the seafront, is St Anthony Embare Basilica and this attraction should be on every travellers must see list. If you are a football or sports fan, the Pelé Museum is also worth visiting so you can get an idea of how revered this sporting legend is in Brazil. If you want to see all of these attractions conveniently then we recommend hiring a car in Santos.

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.
