Car Hire Lamezia Terme
Visiting Lamezia Terme, you'll be in the deep south of Italy where agriculture is the main industry and the way of life goes on in the countryside much as it has done over the last few centuries.
If you stay in Lamezia Terme itself you'll see a different side to southern Italy with ruined castles, the crusader fort and many churches and abbeys.
Relying on public transport to get around is a little frustrating in this part of Italy with fractured bus routes, expensive taxis and few guided tours. All the more reason to pre-book a hire car in Lamezia Terme. Even within the town, visiting the sights will exhaust you in the summer heat whereas an air-conditioned hire car will get you around in comfort and style.

Begin at the atmospheric ruins of the old castle, parts of which date back to Norman times. It's particularly beautiful at dusk or dawn as the pink rays of the sun catch the stonework atop the hill.
In better condition and fascinating with it is the Bastion of the Knights of Malta, used as their base during the Crusades. It acted as a watchtower too for it was not unusual for Arab warships to venture this far west. Driving your Lamezia Terme rental car around the Calabrian countryside, you'll see many other watchtowers in various states of repair, all designed to keep guard over the region.
If you're interested in the religious history of the region, you can visit the two main abbeys; the ruined Santa Maria di Corazzo and the still operational Abbey of the 40 Martyrs. The most inspirational religious visit is likely to be to San Pancrazio's Church which has incredible frescos, statues and paintings.
