The Norman Y. Mineta International Airport in San Jose, California, was named after a former mayor of the city who became US Transport Secretary. Silicon Valley's airport stands in a largely urban environment just two miles northwest of San Jose city centre. Travellers who pick up a hire car at San Jose International Airport will find the road connections are good: it's very close to the junctions of the US Route 101, Interstate 880 and State Route 87. The Guadalupe River runs along one side of the Airport Boulevard on its way to San Francisco Bay – one of California's most beautiful scenic highlights.
This wide-spreading low-rise leafy city is famous for its high-tech industries but has plenty of visitor sights too. If you've picked up a hire car at San Jose Airport, head south to find the History Park. This extraordinary open-air museum has a collection of historic buildings saved from developments all over the city. To the west you'll find the Winchester Mystery House, a memorably strange 160-room Victorian Mansion deliberately built with dead ends and pointless spaces. For a quiet cultural escape, look for the sculpture garden at Stanford's art centre which features 20 statues by the famous French sculptor Rodin.

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.
