|Subject: Car rental in northern Italy|
We have rented a car at the Verona train station - was very convenient and not difficult to get out of town. We have also rented at the Florence airport, to avoid the downtown Florence traffic - worked out well and again, was easy to get out of town. If you're taking the train north, to Verona for example, you will have to change trains in Bologna. It might be easier to rent a car in Bologna or even in Florence. I've been checking car rental costs with Europecar and it doesn't seem to matter where you rent or drop off (within Italy), just how long you keep the car. I think driving from Florence to Verona, once you get out of the city, is all autostrada. It would probably be a pretty easy trip.
