|Subject: Re: Driver's license for Italy|
you are worried about driver license in Italy but said you use your US one in France that is supposed to be illegal. The same apply for Italy: It is supposed to be illegal but many do. Car renting company never ask for the international license and I never hear about problems for foreing driving without the IL. Me too I never got the IL but I never had any problems in any country (i.e. Turkey and USA) just to mention 2 extra EU countries where I was stopped from police.
I would say don't worry and use your Us license.
