Hired driver or rental car in Tuscany?

Jump to last reply

Hello all! As some of you have read, I am planning my first trip to Italy in 2015. This is my original post with my rough itinerary if necessary http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/italy-itinerary-first-international-trip.cfm

I have planned to spend up to 5 nights of the middle of my trip in Tuscany.
In my other thread we talked about spending at least two of those nights in Firenze and then moving on to somewhere else in the region; an agriturismo, a hill town, Siena...etc so of course car rental came up. So did hiring a private driver. While both sound appealing I think the hired driver sounds a but more attractive to us newbies. However, I'm having a hard time finding prices for divers to price compare. I also realize that not driving ourselves might limit our experience a bit not being able to just roam about on our own time.
I also think renting bicycles sounds pretty great, and would like to hear if you have any experiences to share.
I'm checking out discovertuscany.com and a few other resources. I've found lots of great reviews, but am still having trouble really comparing my two options. How is the price comparison and does the extra cost of private driver (assuming it is much higher) weigh out the hassle of international permits, tolls, and all those other things that intimidate us freshies so much?
A lot of the past threads about this are either old or are not for the area I am going to be in...so I thought it was time for a new one. :) I thank you in advance for your help
