A car rental in Schio, Italy is an excellent way to tour the Lake Garda area and the region of Veneto in general before continuing on your Italian road trip. Only a 30-minute drive from Vicenza, Schio became a important center of wool manufacturing in the 12th century and has slowly but surely evolved into an industrial town, thanks to Alessandro Rossi, who founded Lanerossi, the largest Italian wool firm, in the 19th century. Rossi was also instrumental in the planning of the modern city, and personally designed several avenues and gardens for his workers.
A rental car in Schio opens the Veneto region for travelers to explore conveniently and affordably, without being held hostage by unreliable, and in some cases, non-existent public transportation schedules. Known as the Manchester of Italy, Schio has lost much of its Renaissance-era charm, with many of its former palaces and villas renovated to accommodate workers in the wool industry. One notable structure which remains is the Toaldi-Capra Palace, which dates to the 15th century or earlier. In 1913 it was converted into the town hall, and in 1981 was carefully restored and extensive frescoes were uncovered and preserved. Regardless of your plans, if you'll be in the Veneto region or Schio, a rental vehicle with a GPS rental is your key to conveniently exploring the area.
