We will be spending 6 nights in Tuscany basing ourselves in Cortona or San Gimignano. We hope to hire a car and drive to the various sites over these days exploring the area... I have read the Trip Advisor page on driving in Italy, and quite frankly, It has freaked me out a tad!
I would love to hear from Aussies or people from countries that drive on the Left as to the pros and cons of hiring a car
What is the approx driving times between towns?
Reputable car hire places? Do the smaller walled towns have car hire?
Any other valuable info would be invaluable...
