So what's the best way to get around Italy? Train? Rental car? Private car transfer? The answer is all of them! Each has pros and cons, mostly determined by where you are traveling and your level of comfort with driving in unfamiliar locations.
Your airfare can range anywhere from approximately $400 to $950 depending on your departure city. Additionally, current departure tax and fuel surcharges are running approximately $650 per person and are subject to change.

The ultimate in stress-free Italian travel is to journey by train. Enjoy the ride, look out at the lovely countryside and even take a nap while you're whisked from one city to another.
If you're traveling through the Italian countryside or renting a villa, a car is a necessity. For instance in Tuscany, train lines don't run to most of the small towns and buses are few and far between. Without your own wheels, you'll miss the great scenery along the back roads.
A rental car offers the most flexibility since you can come and go without having to adhere to a schedule. Plus, in Italy you can return your car to a different destination from the pickup location for no extra charge!
Some people just aren't comfortable with the idea of driving in Italy. Italian drivers can sometimes be aggressive and can be a challenge to navigate narrow medieval streets and unfamiliar territory.
Though more expensive than a rental car, a private car with driver provides ease and comfort. You can hire a car with driver simply to transport you from the airport to hotel, to take you on a day trip or even to be at your disposal each day of your Italian vacation.
