While in Florence, we were thinking of renting a car the last two days and spending time in towns enroute to Pisa and Lucce. Since we have a baby, I think it will be easier to get around, but I will have to bring a car seat or spend money to rent one. This way we can go point to point at will and not have to wait for train or go back and forth to hotel. I am comfortable driving in Europe and have driven in England, France, Ireland, Denmark, Germany, and Czech Rep. Is this a good alternative than taking a train.
Is the drive between Pisa and Rome recommended? I noticed it takes 4 hours driving as opposed to 2 hours by train. Any thoughts. Thanks!
