how difficult to rent and drive a car out of florence airport?

We are planning on renting a car at Florence airport and driving to Siena. Can this be done with out going crazy?

A lot less crazy than renting the car in downtown Florence . . .

It is very easy from the airport, but that means a taxi ride and a surcharge on the rental. Actually, going south from the Borgo Ognassanti location in Florence is also easy enough.

I agree with Bob. Going south from there is a snap.
I try and return at the airport,even if I'm catching a train. The cab fare (since I also pick up at an airport,I'm already paying the surcharge) is worth keeping my sanity.
I assume that you are arriving at FLR.
If so, the drive from there is quite easy. A little tougher if you arrive during rush hour.

Not a problem at all, enjoy the trip! If you drive into Florence, park at the train station. Easy in, easy out.

Very easy Europcar is right onsite at the airport along with other rental agencies.
