Gorizia sits at the foot of the Julian Alps on the border of Slovenia, in the north east of Italy. The town is overlooked by the Gorizia Castle which sits atop a hill in the town centre. The castle, built in the 11th century, was demolished in the First World War but was restored between 1934 and 1937. Hire a car in Gorizia and you can visit the great landmark of the Castle of Gorizia, which today is home to the Museum of the Middle Ages of Gorizia where you can see the original furnishings of the historic castles.
The charming town of Gorizia, although an Italian commune, sits right on the border of Slovenia. By hiring a car in Gorizia you could even cross the border for a trip into Slovenia. The Piazza della Transalpina is a square worth visiting as it is divided between both Gorizia and Nova Gorica in Slovenia, it is part of both countries. The square is home to an impressive train station which sits on the Slovenian side, whilst the railway station hotel is part of Italy.

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.
