Imagine the looks we got from people! And of course the feeling of riding an amazing car is really unique - I will not forget that experience. Thanks!
...It was amazing and exhilarating! I could feel the power in my hands while driving the car! It was like being in control of a beautiful and powerful beast.
The car was delivered directly to the hotel I was staying in and it looked really fantastic up close!
Luxury car rental Catanzaro is an excellent way to see the city. Catanzaro has another name 'the city of the two seas.' The city has been active since the Iron Ages, with the populations of Vitulo, who worshipped the statue of a calf. The Greeks then named the city Italoi meaning 'worshippers of the calf', and the city was governed by a famous Italian king also named Italoi, who was brother of Dardanus and ancestor to Troy. Italy gets its name from this king.
It is an important tourist attraction in the summer, especially for the young. To many Catanzaro is called the City of the three V's. The V's being, San Vitaliano the patron saint, velvet which has dominated trade since the Byzantine era, and 'vento' meaning wind, from the strong breezes from the Ionian Sea. The 'VVV' was a symbol of the silk industry and stood for the finest quality in silks, velvets and brocades made in the city. It has a strange geography as it gets wet from the sea but it can also get a snowy winter. It has a typical Mediterranean climate but has high winds in the spring and autumn; these winds are called the 'Scirocco libeccio'. Over a 30 year average Catanzaro's coldest temperature is around 8.9 C (48 F) and it's hottest temperature is around 24.5C (76 F) in August. The annual rainfall is about 39 inches (1,000 mm) and it rains for 87 days on average, it has a long summer.
