Avoiding traffic penalties!

This is a tricky question please. I have hired a car for two seperate day trips, one to San Giminiano and Volterra; and the other one to Pisa and Lucca. The car is hired from Hertz in Via Borgo Organissanti. What should I do to leave and enter Florence without breaking the law and incuring fines related to the ZTL? The car is hired seperately for two different days.

I would cancel the bookings. To go to Pisa and Lucca you do not need a car, you can go easily and cheaply by train (all the places you mention have ZTLs, by the way, not just Florence). To get to San Gimignano is another easy trip by bus (change at Poggibonsi). Volterra is more difficult to get to by public transport so if you want to hire a car for this day trip, do so, but pick up and return to Florence airport, not the centre.
