My husband and I (early 40's) will be taking a trip to Paris and Italy in October. We are flying into Paris October 6th and staying there until the 8th, at which time we will fly to Venice. We are spending 1 full day and night in Venice and then will be heading to Castellina in Chianti for 6 nights. Will fly out of Florence back to Paris for one more night and then fly home. I am wondering what is the best plan to get to Chianti? I am thinking of taking the Euro to Florence and then renting a car from there so pick up and drop off location is the same. The other option is to rent a car in Venice and drive to Chianti and then to Florence to fly out.
