We are two couples spending a couple of nights in Rome on our way into and out of Tuscany (staying in Panzano this time). We plan to drive around the hill towns during our stay, so need a car. In the past, we've rented a car in Rome and driven to Tuscany. Was wondering if there is any advantage to taking a train from Rome to Tuscany (Siena? Florence? other?), then renting the car, using it, returning it, and taking train back to Rome. Is there any convenience or cost advantage? Seems like renting the car in Rome and skipping the train is just simpler, though I do love European train travel. Thoughts? Also, any preferred rental companies in Rome or Tuscany? Thanks in advance!
