We will be leaving Florence, headed for Cortona for 2 days in May (on a Tuesday). From there, I plan to rent a car and drive “leisurely” to Montepulciano for 3 days that includes some day trips into the countryside (Pienza, Montacino, etc). Finally we drive to Orvieto, where we drop the car and spend 2 nights “on the rock” before heading to Rome via the train.
I need advice on getting from Florence to Cortona. We will each have one carry-on bag (with wheels).
One option is to rent the car in Florence and drive to Cortona but I will just park it for 2 days - seems a bit wasteful.
