If you go to Taranto with a group of several people, with your family and friends, we recommend hiring a car. Therefore, you will save on services of tour companies and get your own unforgettable impressions. With a car you get full freedom of action and don't need to be attached to schedules of a tourist group, nor to a timetable for transport. Just sit down and go wherever you want, to a busy city centre or to a quiet suburb. Only in this way will you see Taranto in its entire diversity.
A viable car, a massive 4x4, or a hasty hatchback, choose the car you need to calculate the rental cost.
Try also to choose different rental points; practice shows that the price for the same car may differ by 20 - 30% depending on where you are planning to pick it up.
