Do I need to rent a car?
The streets are narrow and driving in Italy is a culture unto itself. Taxi’s will do transports to and from the airport (on arrival and departure days only) and when we take you to our planned events. Taxi’s will be available for hire, if you desire for an extra fee. Leave the driving to the professionals and walk, ride or catch a cab. Sit back, relax and enjoy!
What is the weather like that time of year, what should I bring to wear?
September is usually very nice, most days will be warm and pleasant. Rain can occur so light clothing with a raincoat thrown in just in case.
