Transportation in Italy - rent a car or stick to trains?

Jump to last reply

My soon-to-be husband and I will be traveling through Italy on our honeymoon this fall.

Right now, we are struggling with our transportation situation getting from Venice to Tuscany (about 30 minutes south of Florence) and then down to Rome.

We thought of 2 options:

- take train from Venice to Florence, rent a car for our 3 days in Tuscany, return the car in Florence and take the train down to Rome.

- rent a car in Venice and drive to Tuscany, then drive down to Rome and turn in the car at the Rome airport.

I would love to hear any advice you all have regarding the whole "driving" situation in Italy. I have heard traffic in Rome is a nightmare, but figured the airport would be removed from the city, so it may not be that bad to drop the car off at Rome airport. Thanks in advance!
