If you intend to drive in the heart of Milan, definitely opt for a compact car like a Fiat 500 to effortlessly fit through the narrow lanes. A minivan or SUV are good choices if the car is parked outside the city, as they provide more space for families and good tire traction for the country roads.
In residential areas, 50 kph (31 mph) is permitted, while 90 kph (56 mph) is the limit on rural roads. Highways allow up to 130 kph (80 mph), but check the posted signs and always adhere to the written speed limit, as the police are pretty strict with street regulations in Italy.

Locations in Milan
Pros:They gave us an upgrade.
Cons:Dollar shares employees with Hertz at the Linante airport. Directions to the rental spaces to get the car were terrible. Never saw a green bridge to cross over! Most importantly,the car's rear bumper was literally duck taped onto the car! The employee at the lot was nowhere to be found. Went back to the rental desk. The clerk came out to look for herself and then said that no one had checked the car that had been returned in the morning. Really? No one checked by 2pm? They had no other car supposedly. Fortunately, my husband is a Hertz Gold member and she provided a Hertz car and an upgrade. The whole process took 90 minutes. Terrible experience.
8.0 Very good
Pros:The price was great, the car (Fiat 500) was perfect for a road trip in Italy and it was a great drive.
Cons:It's terribly complicated to pick up a car at Malpensa airport in Milan. It seemed like every car rental desk had everyone waiting 2 hours to be served. I think Hertz is particularly worse because they only have one desk with a handful or less of agents serving Hertz, Dollar & Thrifty rentals. First, it's not easy to see the signs that Dollar rentals can be picked up at Hertz. I lost a 1/2 hour just trying to figure out where to go to get my Dollar rental. Second, the wait was 2 hours...really 2 full hours on the morning I arrived. It does not help that Kayak's instructions say that Dollar is "outside of the airport" which is not true. It's with all the other car rentals right in Terminal 1.
Cons:Dollar did not exist in this airport.
Pros:car was new
Cons:car was not clean
8.0 Very good
Pros:Easy to find the car and get out of the airport once I had my contract
Cons:Waited over an hour to get to an agent to check in and get my car. Way to few agents for the number of people renting cars. Completely unacceptable
Cons:It would be more honest to include items like VAT and "other fees" that are charged by rental companies so consumer could make more accurate price comparisons. We paid almost twice the advertised price advertised on Kayak. Not happy customers.
