Florence/Venice Car Rental vs. Train

Jump to last reply

My husband and I and 8 months old son are planning to Tour Tuscany June 6-9, and end up in Venice. It will be a short trip, probably only 2 full days... sadly

Looking at the train schedule from Florence to Venice, costs are equating to about 60 Euro/ 2 Adults. This is not including a car rental.

Alternatively, we rent a car June 6 from the Florence Airport, dropping it off at the Venice Mestre Station- costing about 88 Euro.

We will be arriving in Florence at the Santa Maria Noveta Station (from Cinqre terre), so we will have to find our way to the Airport (as I found no car rentals from the Noveta Station). We do not plan on staying in Florence.

My question to you:
- what makes more sense? Train to Venice or, from a cost perspective, rent a car the whole time and drive 2.5 hours to Venice?

-How are the roads? Is that even an option? I heard there are a lot of 'local only roads', would this be a problem renting a car? And, are these roads easily identifiable?

- If the above is true, what is the best way to get from the Santa Maria Noveta station to the Florence Airport (to rent the car)?

I really appreciate your help.

Thanks in advance,
