...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!
Delivery and collection was a hassle-free process and even though I've rented cars several times in my life, this was the best experience so far.

On several occasions the city rose against Rome only for it finally succumb once the Carthaginians had finally been defeated at the Battle of the Mataurus. When the Roman Empire fell, Potenza swapped rulers with regularity in the following centuries. In the middle ages, the city became part of Lombardy and during this time Potenza had to defend against the invading Saracens until the Normans conquered the south of Italy in the 10th century.
In the 12th century it became an episcopal see and a staging post for a failed attack on the Normans to the south. It then became loyal to the Hapsburg Empire and Emperor Frederick II but because of this it was reduced to rubble when Charles I of France took over the Kingdom of Sicily.
