Is renting a car to leave Venice advisable? After a few days in Venice, we want to explore the areas around Milan, Genoa and Florence in 2-3 days. There are 4 adults and I'm not sure which of these ideas is best:
1. Pickup car in Venice, drop off in Rome
3. Pickup car in Venice, drop off in a central town and train to Rome
4. Train the whole way
I'm mostly concerned about finding the car rental sites in the cities. Some of the car rental agencies list several per city and I don't know which to choose from. My wife has been to Rome and doesn't advise driving there.
Thanks in advance.
