arriving Montepulciano on Public Holiday (June 2)

We are visiting Montepulciano on a holiday. We need to get from the Civitavecchia Cruise Port to a Hertz rental company, unfortunately the only rental office is at one of the airports or main train station in Rome. We will need to take a train from Civitavecchia to an airport but do not know which would be easier to do, not necessarily quickest but with less stress. Train to Termini, train to Pisa or train to Florence to get rental car and then drive to Montepulciano?

Thank you!

There are DIRECT trains from Civitavecchia (coming from Rome) to Pisa Centrale, taking 2-3 hrs depending on which type of train (IC or R). From Pisa Centrale you currently have a bus to the airport, instead of the usual train. This would seem to me to be easier than going into Rome to change for Florence (or, for that matter, for Fiumicino airport).

Thanks for your reply, that was the route I came up with as well. Lastly getting to Florence airport from Montepulciano for flight 1:30pm on a Thursday, should we ditch the car Wednesday and get a transport to airport or is it fairly easy to drop at Florence airport day of departure?
