Avezzano Guide

In the region of Abruzzo, within the L'Aquila province, is the town of Avezzano. Avezzano is thought to be named for the Roman God Janus - 'Ave Janus'. In the first century Emperor Claudius ordered the draining of the nearby lake in the Fucino Basin, and so begun settlement of the town. The tunnels that were built to drain the lake under Claudius' rule can still be walked, and are a huge tourist attraction. In 1490 the Castle of Avezzano was built by Virginio Orsini. Make sure you take a look at the gateway, restored to its original splendor and well worth a visit.

In what was possibly the worst earthquake it Italy's history in 1915 (with the epicenter at Avezzano), 12 000 people died but a wing of the castle was spared. So too was the Casa dei Palazzi. The town has been subsequently rebuilt with straight parallel streets and wide green spanses. During World War II the town was again substantially damaged and required extensive rebuilding.

Avezzano holds an annual festival to its patron saint, Saint Madonna di Pietracquaria in April, and a beer festival in July. August sees the festival of 'pasta e ceci', followed in September by a potato festival - so there is really a festival for everyone and anyone all year round! With sugar beet being grown in the town, you would be forgiven for thinking life revolves around food.

Avezzano is accessible by train or bus from Rome, and at about 60 kilometres from Rome it is not too far for a day trip. And although there may be smaller airports that are closer to Avezzano, the major ones are not too far away, with Rome and Naples both having an international airport with services in and out of Avezzano. The drive from L'Aquila is a pretty one, over winding mountain roads and overlooking villages and towns along the way.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
