Renting a car for Tuscany (from Rome)

Jump to last reply

We have a 2 1/2 week trip planned in September, visiting Paris, Rome and Tuscany then back to Paris (and very excited!). A part of that is 6 days in Rome, followed by 5 days at a place near Siena, finishing with a day in Florence before flying back to Paris.

Although suspect I'd figure out driving in Rome just fine, it doesn't seem like there's much point. So, I plan to rent the car after we check out of the hotel in Rome (which isn't too far from the Trevi Fountain). But, again, it doesn't seem to make a lot of sense to rent from central Rome and battle our way out of a city that is new to us.

We are traveling light (one backpack each) so have no problem hoping on trains or subway or whatever. So we have plenty of options. I am considering catching the train from Rome to Orvieto, rent the car and drop it off at Florence airport .

Does that sound like a reasonable plan. FWIW, we'd like to the countryside as much we can on the driving part of our journey, rather than freeways.

Thanks.

Mark
