    Default From Pisa to Florence to San Gimignano to Pisa

    We arrive in Pisa on 8th September, stay in Florence for 3 nights then just outside San Gimignano for a further 7 nights. We are considering using the train, hiring a car in SG area and then taking the train back to Pisa Airport for our flight home. Which would be the most convenient station to use in SG area, one which has car rental available, please.

    Poggibonsi is where you head to with the train from Florence and has local car rental agencies.....
    but at that point, I'd recommend picking up the car directly in Florence as you get ready to leave, to already pack your suitcases in and head there.
    Train travel would mean changing trains in Empoli, with suitcases along.

    Read the tips here about renting a car in Florence - the agencies near the train station would be ideal if you're staying in the center. Get a cab directly from your hotel/rental and get dropped off there, so you don't need to drag suitcases across downtown.
