Renting car in Rome for travel through Tuscany and leave in Venice

Jump to last reply

A few issues with this one.

First where should I rent the car from in Rome for a Saturday morning start if we don't want to get caught in a lot of Rome traffic and want a smooth passage out of Rome onto the highways? I have looked at the Avis site just to see where the locations are and not knowing Rome, they don't mean much to me. Does anyone have advice? I have the listing of the locations here:

Second, we leave our Tuscany rental on a Saturday and plan to drive the car and drop it in Venice. The Piazzelle Roma drop-offs are only open on Saturdays until noon or 1 pm, but the Marco Polo drop off later. This would be very inconvenient, so the PR would be our choice. We are staying between Florence and Siena. How long will it take to drive to Venice and if we leave by 7 am could we do it to make it in time for a drop off at PR? Or maybe someone knows of a car rental service that has later hours at the PR on Saturdays?

Thank so much.
