Keep car from Tuscany to Bologna to Venice - with 6 people?

Jump to last reply

With 6 people on our next trip to Italy, I'm leaning towards keeping our rental van after Tuscany - to avoid the logistics of getting 6 people to & from car rental return to trains to hotels... I could either return the car in Bologna, or at our final stop, Venice. I've heard the main route from Tuscany to Bologna has lots of tunnels, sharp turns, & maybe trucks? Not sure I have this right. I just thought having the car to do our own balsamic vinegar-prosciutto tours around Modena might be more economical. But I don't want to stress out the drivers either.

So I was wondering what the Fodor experts thought about this.

My plan was: After a few days in Rome, we'll get a car at the Rome airport, then use it to explore Tuscany for several days. From there we'll drive to Bologna for a couple nights (do some tours, perhaps on our own since we'll have the car), then drive to Venice where we will return the car. We fly out of Venice.

My Italy driving experience: just once, in Tuscany, from Pisa through Tuscan hill towns to Orvieto - so not a lot of highways.
Thank you - again !
