Rented a Fiat Panda for a week from
Autonoleggioilgirasole and I could not be more pleased. The car was immaculate and in top condition. The rental check in /check out process was painless and fast. Their location is just one block from the Terontola / Cortona train station and that made it so easy to rent from them. Great price too!

Massimo was super professional and kind! We rented two cars with him and used the drop off service at our villa, which was very convenient. We also booked transfer services in minivans with him that worked perfectly. We stopped for lunch and for visits during the transfer and the drivers were very flexible and helped us make the most of our trip! Highly recommended = )

We reserved a rental car with Il Girasole based on a referral from the family owning the Agriturismo that we were staying at in Tuscany. We requested a car with automatic transmission that could comfortably accommodate two travelers with luggage and an English speaking GPS. Massimo was very helpful and responsive in working with us to reserve the right car. We took the train from Rome to Terentola to pick up our car on a Saturday morning. Il Girasole was literally a 2 minute walk from the train station. The rental car pick up took only about 5-10 minutes and was completely hassle free. We didn't yet have our trains from Terentola to Varenna when we returned the car the following Saturday morning, so Gabriella took the time to log onto the Trenitalia website and look at train schedules and fares for us, printed them off and highlighted the recommended trains. She went above and beyond the level of service I expected or ever receive from other "big box" car rental companies. The car rental return was also hassle free and there were no surprises in the final bill. Everyone staying at our Agriturismo had a rental car and most had GPSs and they were all complaining of how poorly their GPS was working. We drove our rental car all over Tuscany, from the unpaved roads in the countryside to Florence and back and our GPS was always functioning and accurate. I travel and rent cars in the US weekly as I travel on business and don't receive the level of service or attention to detail from companies I rent from each week in the US that I received from Massimo and Gabriella. I can recommend Il Girasole highly if you're looking for a rental car in this part of Tuscany.

Such a helpful and friendly business. They arranged for someone to be available after hours on a Sunday when we arrived. The car was in great condition, very clean. Lots of local information provided for sightseeing places and super easy when it came time to hand the car back. 10/10 to Massimo and his staff.

Make sue you discuss with Massimo your wants for the day. The Cinque Terre is a 3 hr drive from Ossaia so time spent should be used wisely upon arriving at CT. Do not try to do all towns. Pick 2or 3 Towns of the 5. Massimo & his vehicle were spotlessly clean & well presented. We found him to be an excellent driver & experienced at handling the narrow roads of the CT. Would use again. Cheaper than training it to Florence & doing a bus tour from there.

Thank you for your kind comments, we are happy that the vehicle that was provided for the trip and the competence of the driver made the day enjoyable for you. We often arrange tours like this for our customers, and this has allowed us to gain extensive experience over the years about the best organization of a day tour to the Cinque Terre departing from Cortona, Montepulciano, or other areas of the Val d'Orcia, in a way that make a trip like this - in spite of the distance of Cinque Terre - enjoyable for our customers. We hope to see you soon again in Cortona.

This is the second time I have worked with Massimo and his team. They arrange wine and sightseeing tours for us to Chianti, Orvieto, Brunello, Pienza and Montalcino. Good not have asked for or been better. Massimo and his team are all very knowledgeable and consummate professionals. If you need a car or guide service, this is the place to go.

Originally we were going to take a train and walk to this car rental agency from the train. We ended up with a driver taking us to this agency. They made sure that we knew when they would be open, they spoke English which was helpful and the rate was reasonable. We had a nice new car and it was easy to return. The train was only a couple blocks away so my husband dropped me off at a cafe next to the train and delivered the car to the agency and easily walked to meet me before reaching the train. We rented the Tom Tom which I don't think would be needed if you are using your smart phone. It attempted to tell us to go on streets that were not really streets so we just stayed on main roads and followed the road signs most often. I am not sure if the smart phone would be any smarter. Overall, it was a great experience renting from them. We will use them again next time.

We spent a week in Tuscany in October and had a wonderful time touring the countryside. During our stay, we rented a car from Massimo at Il Girasole. The car was immaculate, the GPS provided helped us navigate, and the customer service was exceptional. Unfortunately, during our stay, we were involved in a fender bender near Pienza when another car failed to yield at a traffic circle and slammed into our passenger side door. We were distraught, to say the least, because we don't speak the language or know the laws, and we knew we could not converse with the police to tell our version of the incident nor would we be able to fill out any paperwork. So, we called Massimo. He answered the phone at 9:00 at night and drove from Cortona to Pienza to assist us. Massimo spoke to the police officers, filled out all the paperwork, and acted as translator for us. I cannot imagine that one of the big-name rental car companies would have sent someone to help us out like this, but we sure appreciated having an advocate there for us when the unforeseen occurred. We plan to visit Tuscany again in the future, and you can rest assured that we will rent a car from Massimo at Il Girasole again.

Decided to rent our car outside of Florence to avoid driving in the large city. This was an excellent plan after experiencing the driving in Florence. My experience with this company and Massimo was excellent from the first contact. He was extremely helpful with all information and promptly answered all my questions. Provided explicit instructions for arrival and drop off. The office is a short block from the rail station and very convenient. The rental car was a vehicle I had not heard of, but was very nice and clean. Ordered with GPS which worked out great. Very busy at drop off, but were very efficient and completed all in plenty of time for us to catch out outbound trains. I have no problem recommending this small car rental company, especially if you are concerned about driving in the city of Florence or Rome (as you should be).
