We are traveling to Italy in September. We arrive in Florence and plan to take a bus or train to Lucca where we will stay 3 nights. We will then move to Loro Ciuffenna where we will stay for a week. During this leg of the journey we plan to have a rental car. At the end of our stay we fly home from Florence. I have several questions.
1 - From the Florence airport is a Bus or Train to Lucca best?
2 - Should we return to Florence to rent the car or can we get a car in or near Lucca and return it in Florence?
3 - If we should get the car in or near Lucca, where is the best place? We plan to stay in the City Center.
