Renting a car in Foligno, Italy is an exciting, convenient, and affordable way to explore Umbria, Italy as well as the Adriatic coast. Like many central Italian cities, Foligno has an epic history reaching back to the 8th century BC when it was founded by the pre-Roman tribe of Umbria. The city was routinely occupied and destroyed by various invaders, such as the Saracens, Magyars, Lombards, and Sicilians until it was finally consolidated as part of the Papal States in 1441, where it would remain until the unification of Italy in 1860. With a storied history of nearly 3,000 years, there are plenty of sites to visit in Foligno and its surrounding hamlets and villages, and a car rental with Auto Europe is the best way to see these historic attractions!
The central square of Foligno boasts several historic churches and buildings, such as the Palazzo Comunale whose original bell tower from the 13th century remains, despite extensive bombing during World War II. Located adjacent to the Palazzo Comunale is the Palazzo Orfini, where one of the first printing shops in Italy was opened in 1470. The Divine Comedy, written by Dante, was printed here, and this famous work was the first book to be printed in the Italian language. Additionally, with either a car rental in Foligno or by hiring an English-speaking Italian chauffeur, travelers can easily venture outside the city to the Abbey of Sassovivo, a Benedictine monastery built around 1070, where the recently venerated Angela of Foligno once took sanctuary.
