Car hire in Vercelli allows you access to the broader Piedmont region of northern Italy. Most histories place the founding of this city in the year 6 BC, making the city one of the most ancient urban sites in northern Italy. Hiring a car in Vercelli can be easy if you visit our local branch in Vercelli. Vercelli, located in a plain between Milan and Turin, is surrounded by paddyfields which are flooded during the summer months, making this region the rice basket of Italy. Vercelli boasts the first university funded by public money, founded in 1228, but sadly closed in 1372.
Vercelli's jewels Hiring a car in Vercelli allows you to explore the main sights of the city, before looking further afield. The city is uncommonly scattered with Roman ruins and remains, including a hippodrome, amphitheatre, sarcophagi and numerous significant early Christian inscriptions. The stunning Basilica di Sant'Andrea, erected in 1219, is one of the most complete and beautiful Romanesque cathedrals in Italy. Vercelli's cathedral, too, is incredible- it was remodelled in the ninth century, and then radically altered again in the sixteenth century. Rent a car in Vercelli and explore the city, and then further afield into wider Piedmont.

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.
