Any of the major companies will allow one-way rentals. I think that Hertz charges a small fee, but the other companies do not charge for one-way rental within Italy. You can take the car into France without problems.

See www.driveaway.com.au and www.autoeurope.com.au for cheap rentals from the major companies.

All the big companies like avis, Hertz etc will allow you to drop off the car at another location but will charge a drop off fee so also bear in mind that the train is a good way of transport in Italy. You can check out the prices online for car rentals on their websites.

You can certainly drop off a car in Genoa, as all major rental companies are located there, most with both city and airport offices.

But as far as I know there are no rental companies at the cruise terminal - you will have to drop off elsewhere and take a taxi.

Note that in a 4-5 day visit, the drive to classic Provence is not necessarily a good idea, unless you enjoy spending your time largely on major highways. Malpensa to Avignon is likely to take around eight hours including rest stops on the way, and only a couple of hours less back to Genoa. Perhaps you could think about visiting places nearer at hand?
