A car rental in Sassuolo, Italy is your key to exploring the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy before continuing on to other destinations on your Italian road trip. Located about an hour's drive from Bologna, the city hugs the right bank of the river Secchia and is historically tied to the river as well as the nearby city of Modena. The city was historically rather impoverished, which changed only in the 1950's when with support from the Marshall Plan, Sassuolo evolved into the center of the Italian tile industry, producing over eighty percent of all Italian ceramic tiles, with more than 300 ceramic factories operating in the area.
At first look, Sassuolo may not appear to be a noteworthy destination for travelers. However, Sassuolo has the very impressive Ducal Palace of Sassuolo, which was designed by famous architect Barolomeo Avanzini in the 1630's. The interior of the palace is filled with highly decorated frescoes painted by the French artist Jean Boulanger, and the courtyard sports a fancy fish pool which was constructed from the ruins of an ancient roman amphitheater. If architecture isn't your thing, sample the local drink, sassolino, an anise liqueur distilled with star anise, it tastes very similar to Italian Sambuca or French Ricard. Regardless of your plans, consider an upgrade to a luxury vehicle to cruise the city in style and with the utmost convenience.
