    Default Car Rental Venice to Tuscany

    My wife and I will disembark a cruise ship in Venice in May. We will be moving on to Castellina in Chianti lodging the first day from there for three days before going south to Buonconvento for four days. Our lodging reservations are firm. Our plan is to rent a car to maximize our ability to visit Florence, Chianti region, Sienna, Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Cortona, and Orvietto. We will fly out of Florence at the end of the trip where we will drop the rental car. From our Castellina base, we will take the train into Florence for day trips from Poggibonsi station.

    Can you advise me where to rent a car in Venice close to the cruise ship docks? Are there several car rental companies located near the Venice docking point including Hertz and Avis? I assume renting a car there is easier and no more expensive than taking a train from Venice to Florence and renting a car from there near the Florence train station. Since we will have luggage and the afternoon will be advanced by then, we are not planning to see Florence the first day.

    I apreciate your assistance. I have been researching the rental car in Venice and haven't located the correct information yet.

    If you search on here: http://www.discovertuscany.com/tusca...n-tuscany.html
    the location best suited for anyone arriving from a cruise ship is the Mestre station, as you arrive right by the Santa Lucia station (in the lagoon). From there, you take the train to the mainland and Mestre is right there... maybe a 5 min ride at most.
    In the beginning stages of planning to come to Tuscany? Make sure to read Where to Stay in Tuscany WITH a car and Where to Stay in Tuscany WITHOUT a car for ideas on where to stay in Tuscany. Also read When to Visit Tuscany to decide when is the best times for your visit.
