Does anyone have advice on where we should return our rental car when coming into Rome on November 2nd? We will be driving into Rome from the Amalfi Coast. Obviously, I know we will need to go to the return spot for our chosen rental agency.
But we have heard driving in Rome is difficult and wondered if we should drop off the car on the outskirts of Rome (maybe one of the airports) and take public transportation to our B&B near the Vatican? I hate to add this extra step (and the time it will take) but would love to avoid any major mishaps with ZTLs or dangerous city driving.
We will probably be using AutoEuropa for car rental -- but I have not reserved a car yet since I am not sure where we are picking up or returning the car.
Also, does anyone know if the rental price is better if we reserve ahead of time -- or should we wait until we are in Florence to rent?
We will probably be picking up the car Florence SMN train station or maybe in Pisa (?). Tentatively our plan is to visit Lucca for a few days after we leave Florence and then spend a half day in Pisa before we pick up our car for our trip into Tuscany countryside.
Thank you in advance for any advice!
