Florence car pick up Via del Sansovino, in the Oltrarno

Has anyone picked up a car at this location? It appears to be out of the dreaded ZTL but not sure. From here we want to drive to Chianti area. Thought it would be more convenient than Florence airport pick up. Any thoughts or advice?

I drove around for an hour,and got a bus-lane ticket, trying to find that place once and never did find it. On a map it appears to be a great location, but is there any there there?

Thanks so much for your response. I was afraid that this might be the case. I guess I will pick up the car at the airport and be safe.

I finally found it on google street view. I'm also picking the car from this location

Ziggy,

Please report to us how that works out.

Hey, great, I was there, and the people working said, no, no, no Hertz (pronounced "airtz). At the time it didn't have the Hertz sign out front.

So, Nash, based on Ziggy's fine work, I will say now that it is easy - when the Hertz office is open there, which I believe is only certain times/seasons.

Obviously, the building is distinctive and easy to see from the road.

Thanks Ziggy. I found it too. I guess if we take a cab to the Hertz place we won't have to worry too much about getting lost. The route out towards Chianti region looks pretty easy. Please let us know how this works out.

Yes, assuming the cab driver knows where it is and the side of the street its on. Perhaps I need to stop watching Amazing Race. See way too many cabbies getting lost on that show.

If you take a close look there's some trickery on that street. When you leave you sort of need to drive toward the river and make a U-turn to get to the other side of the street. I'll be there at the end of June
