Our family of 5 is traveling in mid-June to Venice and Rome for 10 days. We are now considering spending a couple of days after Venice to rent a home in Tuscany, and to take a much-needed but (very) short breath before heading to Rome. Transportation/ logistics seem confusing (looks like our best option is train Venice-Florence ($200 for 5 people and 2 hrs non-stop) and car rental from Florence to Rome (family-sized Avis about $1000, not even sure if 5 carry-on bags will fit but mini-van looks even smaller). Are there better ways of getting that arm of the trip done for an adult regular-sized family of 5? Are there specifics anyone on the forum can share/ recommend? Thank you.
