Will be flying overnight Friday into Milan via Frankfurt, arriving early afternoon. We are meeting the rest of our party outside of Arezzo, south of Florence. Our debate is whether to rent a car from MXP and drive directly to our villa rental, or take the train. While the train would certainly be less stressful, we're concerned about timing the trains (shuttle bus to Milan Centrale station from airport, change trains in Florence, etc.) and the delay in getting to our final destination. From best I can tell, renting a car and leaving immediately would have us arriving in 3.5 hours, the train would take about 6.5 hours (with connections and transfers). The train is about 120Euro less than rental. I regularly drive in large cities across the US, but have never driven in Europe. Any feedback on experience driving on Autostrade from Milan south, other rentals in Italy or general advice would be appreicated. We can drop car the following day in Arezzo as our party will have transportation taken care of for the remainder of trip.
