Enchanting Tuscany

In Italy the freewheeling experience becomes more challenging with driving on the right hand side of the road. Don’t be put off, roads and autobahns are well surfaced and clearly signposted. Most major roads do have tolls so it is often cheaper and more scenic to stay on the secondary roads.A meandering drive through Tuscany is the way to experience Italy at its best: shop at the local markets, wander through the villages, and dine on the rustic foods that the area is famous for. Base yourself at a villa for 7 nights and head out and about on day trips.

Choosing your Rental Car

Take into consideration the size of the vehicle you require. We strongly recommend a compact size car for two adults. If the vehicle is to be used for day touring from a central base and not for transporting your luggage, a smaller vehicle may be adequate. We suggest you book your car before leaving home as this will save money and ensure you get the car of your choice.
