These threads have provided such valuable tips for our upcoming anniversary trip in September. We will be starting in Florence and then after that renting a car to explore the countryside around Sienna. We plan to spend a number of days there and felt having a car would offer the most flexibility. After those days however, we plan to head to the Amalfi coast. I don't really want to have a car there so I am trying to figure out the best way (and location) to return the rental car. It seems like the fastest way from the Sienna area is to take a high speed train from Florence to Naples. So would it be best to pick up and return the rental car from Florence? I'm a bit nervous about finding our way back to the car rental location and risk the fines.... Other options or suggestions? I suppose we could always drive from Sienna to Naples but that looks like it may take longer?? Suggestions would be most appreciated!
