Booking a car rental in Alessandria is a fantastic way to explore the region of Piedmont, the Ligurian coastline, or to just relax in the laid-back city of Alessandria. Located approximately an hour drive from Turin, Alessandria serves as a major railway hub for passengers traveling between Genoa and Turin and has a nearly one-thousand year history of conflict between the various forces vying for control of northern Italy. This tumultuous legacy ended in 1945 with the conclusion of World War II. Whether you're looking to spend time in Alessandria, northern Italy, or you're thinking of a one-way car rental to continue your trip to France or Switzerland, Alessandria is a great place to either begin or end your European road trip.
Alessandria was long in competition with other nearby cities for domination over the alluvial plain between the Tanaro and Bormida rivers, specifically the nearby city of Asti, with which it today enjoys a more playful rivalry. Much of Alessandria's historic architecture was built while the city was under control of the house of Savoy, and later while it was the capital of the French territories in northern Italy. During this period, several substantial forts and castles were constructed in and around the city; the Cristo quarter of the city has the remains of a former French fort, as well as the still standing Forte Acqui. During the 18th century, a Jewish ghetto was established and the Jewish congregation was emancipated by the French during their control of the city. A synagogue dating from 1684 survived the Holocaust, although its books, manuscripts, relics, and congregation sadly did not. Travelers touring this storied portion of Italy will enjoy fine food, rich history and beautiful countryside.
