What would be the best way to travel from Nice to Tuscany? We were thinking Nice to Florence by train, then hire a car from Florence to our accommodation in Lamporecchio. We noticed that we may be able to get off the train at Empoli then hire a car from there.
Is this a better idea? We are concerned about hiring a car from Florence and then getting out of the city. We are not confident drivers. Empoli is quieter and closer to our accommodation, but not sure about hire cars from there. I found a couple of car hire companies in Empoli, but everything is in Italian.
From Lamporecchio we are heading to Rome by train.
Any advice would be appreciated.
