Forgot the tag! Dropping the rental car and taking the train. Suggestions?

Jump to last reply

Hello. I am sorry that I am posting this a second time. I meant to add a tag for Italy but forgot and posted it. Perhaps it is just my lack of familiarity with technology but I couldn't seem to add any tags after I posted. I apologize if you are reading this post for the second time!

Thanks again to all those who have already responded to my questions regarding the trip that my husband and I are taking to Italy in May (5-22). We are leaving Rome on the 14th to go to Tuscany. My thought was that we could take the train to Orvieto, spend a few hours in town and then pick up the rental car and drive to our B&B (ended up being near Buonoconvento). We are planning to travel from Tuscany to Geneva on May 20th to spend a day before we catch our plane back home.

My questions are:
- Should we just plan to drive back to Orvieto, drop the car and take the train on through Florence, Milan and to Geneva?
- Should we try and drop the car in Buonconvento (are drop fees as expensive as I imagine them to be?) and take the train from there to Florence and onward?
- Should we scrap Orvieto altogether, take the train from Rome to Buonoconvento and rent a car there? I had heard that there was not a ton of supply of rental cars there but if it makes the most sense, we could give that a whirl.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Thanks so much!

Caitie
