Good evening forum, my wife and I are visiting Tuscany for the first time in July starting with 4 nights in Florence before hiring a car and moving to Chianti. Could you advise the best place to pick-up the car in order to avoid the centre of Florence pls. Thanks in anticipation.

In this article we talk about where you can pick up a rental car (towards the end of the article)

Keep in mind that a car pick up at the airport, no longer means AT THE AIRPORT. The pick-up site is just a short distance away (and not in the ZTL zone) so you could take a taxi there and pick up the car. It would leave you close to the entrance to the Autostrada - which has you avoid skirting around Florence - and you can get off at either Impruneta which will take you over to Siena or Firenze Sud which will take you into Chianti in less than 10 km.

Buon Viaggio,
