Private villa for rent by owner in Chianti and car rental in Tuscany
Car rental in Florence
In order to freely move around in Chianti and elsewhere during your stay at Villa Tuscany a car is absolutely necessary. If you are not traveling with your own, you can pick up a rental car at the Florence airport or close to the Central Station Santa Maria Novella on its nearby streets Borgo Ognissanti, Via Maso Finiguerra, Via di Melegnano and Via Santa Lucia. The majority of car rental agencies are available both at the airport and in the city center. If you rent your car in the city make sure to get precise instructions from the car rental agency on how to get out of the center and back in for car returns because the area around the train station is a limited traffic area zone (ZTL) carrying heavy fines if entered. It is also highly recommended to rent a GPS with the vehicle or bring one from home with Italy maps downloaded. The map above highlights the streets near the train station where the car rental agencies are located.
