A totally inappropriate transfer bus takes you to the hire car location about 50m away!!
But drive to the River and the view is just amazingly beautiful.
We stayed in Hotel Bologna which is on a side street very close to the river - it was good standard and the staff we're very friendly. As a tip I'd recommend hiring your car from the following day and take the taxi in/out as the City is so close to the airport - we paid €20 for parking in the hotel (about the same as two taxi rides - and you save a day car hire).
After dumping the bags we headed out to find the tower - which is dead easy. It started to rain and we were inundated with street-sellers wanting to sell us brollies. Be warned pavement cafe drinks are very expensive.
