Hi chrism551,

You should check in advance of the places you intend to visit to see if they have ZTL areas - limited driving zones. If you enter one of these areas (and they are signposted) then you will incur a fine which you will receive via your car rental company down the track, together with an administration fee from the rental company as well.

You should park in the parking areas provided outside the walled cities/towns you are visiting and ensure you keep any belongings hidden from view.

I travel in Tuscany most years and have never had any problems with theft from my rental car ... but of course it does happen.
