Getting from CT Italy to Dijon France-help

Jump to last reply

Four traveling and we have three options at the very end of May from Monterossa:

3-4 hour train to Milan
Fly Easyjet to Lyon arrive 4:35
Rent car and drive 2 hours to Dijon
Arrive 6:35
Return car to Paris 3 days later
Cost w/o gas and tolls $405
Not sure about a drop fee to return car to Paris

1 hour train to Pisa
Fly Easyjet to Paris Orly arrive 2:35 pm
Rent car and drive 3-3 1/2 hours to Dijon
Arrive 6:00
Return car to Paris
Cost w/o gas and tolls around $560
This option would give us a few hours in Pisa which we have not been to previously.

Throw hands up and take1 hour train to Pisa
Rent car and drive to Dijon
Arrive 8 pm
Cost w/o gas and tolls $250
Return car to Paris three days later
Unknown drop fee to return car to Paris
This would give us time to stop along the way if we wanted

I know I have heard about astronomical drop fees to return car to another country, but what about another city? It seems AuoEurope doesn't quote thé drop fée until you hit "submit" and then they send the voucher and allow you to cancel in three days if you don't like it.

We could spend about $600 and 12 hours on a train and go directly from Monterossa to Dijon and arrive at 7 or 8 or maybe even 10 pm. Still have to get a car and pay a drop fee to return to Paris.

What have we missed?
I know this complicated so I do appreciate your advise.
