We've booked a trip to Tuscany for April 2011 and are looking forward to our 2 days there. My husband has cousins that live in the countryside about 30 mins from Lucca. We will be traveling from Florence by train but wondered if it would be possible to rent a car in Lucca for just a day so we can go see these relatives? Lame question I know but it's been ages since I rented a car and certainly never in Italy! Can you get a car early in the a.m. and return it late at night (dinner is so late in Italy)? Or do they charge you for a 24 hr period?
Thanks for any and all suggestions or tips! Our first trip ANYWHERE in 8 years and I am beyond excited :-)
