Rental Car - Pick up at the port?

We are renting a home in Tuscany in June after we get off a cruise from Venice to Civitacecchia. I will need a rental car anyway while in Tuscany - was hoping to rent at the port - but the only locations I can find rental cars is at the airport or train station in Rome.

It seems crazy to pay a transfer to Rome to pick up a rental car.

Thanks for any advice or city name that migh offer us a better route. The home is between Florence and Pisa.

I am not opposed to taking a train - was just thinking that getting a rental car at the port would make the most sense.

Car rental Civitavecchia drop off Rome Termini www.autoeurope.com

Non EU citizens require an International driving permit for Italy, avoid driving in city centres especially Florence.

Be aware of traffic restrictions and ZTL areas in Italy.

Thank you - As I kept digging thru Trip Advisor - I found another post for Car Hire - showing a UK site -

I was so relieved to know there is a location at the port - we do have an international driver's license from about 10 years ago! We will look into a more current one -

We are doing the same thing in September, we get off the ship in Civitavecchia and heading to Tuscany,

were you able to rent a car at the port, or how did you get to Tuscany?

Thanks!

If you go to boards.cruisecritic.com and then to the Ports of Call section for Italy ask your question there. There is a frequent cruiser who has rented from Civitavecchia several times and given his advice. He will likely read your post and respond.
