Arranging a car rental in Follonica, Italy is an excellent way to explore the coastal regions of Tuscany before continuing on to other Italian destinations as part of a European road trip. Located about 45 minutes from Grosseto by car, the city's location on the Gulf of Follonica has allowed nearly constant habitation since Roman times. Follonica's proximity to the coast and the Italian Riviera makes it an ideal Mediterranean destination and a more convenient place to acquire a car rental than many larger cities. While the Rome Fiumicino Airport is a popular international terminal, many travelers choose to rent a car in Follonica or other nearby cities in Italy.
Follonica's contemporary city was founded in the 19th century for workers of a nearby ironworks plant, but the area was settled by Romans who constructed a fort on a hill overlooking the modern town. The fort was renovated into an impressive Medieval Castle, known as Castello Di Valli, whose ruins can be visited with a Follonica car rental or private chauffeur. Follonica is especially busy during the summer, when tourists flock to the city for its popular beaches, which have been consistently awarded the Blue Flag for the cleanliness of its beaches.
