Thanks for the advice everyone, its very useful.

We are currently pretty firm that we want to retire to Italy, and are giving serious consideration to the Abruzzo area. We are planning a trip to both visit close friends in Milan and spend about four days down in Abruzzo to get impressions on what we might favor. Larger town or smaller village.

Just how essential would a renting a car be? Say we spent a day in Pescano, a day in Teramo, perhaps another day in Penne. We would be there to just sample the town, not tour the countryside. Is train and bus sufficient? Perhaps supplement with taxi?

As I will be getting to Pescara via train from Milan, it seems it might be a hassle to haul myself out to the airport to rent a car and return it to same.

Our initial 'quick visit' is not till next May 2015. Have to suffer through the Wisconsin winter first. We will only be able to spend a quick week in Italy, however since the retirement is still 5 years off, we will certainly make additional return trips. Then, when we do retire, we think the smart way will be to just spend three months, perhaps a month at a time in three different places that our quick trips have given us the best feel about. Perhaps also secure a long term rental and then return to the States to complete the long term visa requirements.
