There aren't any particular requirements for citizens of European Union nations. Citizens of Japan and most English-speaking nations (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, United States) in possession of valid passports can stay in Italy for up to 90 days without a visa. Contact your nearest Italian consulate if you have questions or would like to stay longer, or to find out if your country is currently in the visa-waiver programme.
Though foreign licences are usually accepted at car rental agencies and by the government, you should obtain an international permit (a supplementary document obtainable from automobile clubs) if your licence is not issued by an EU nation. Nobody under 18 years of age may drive a car in Italy, even if he or she holds a valid licence in a foreign nation.
If you don't speak Italian, but plan on travelling by yourself or with a small group that won't include an Italian speaker, we suggest learning at least a few Italian words and phrases before you arrive.
