I have two questions; 1. We are renting a car in Florence, Italy, do I need to get an international driving permit? 2. I am using my Chase UR points from my Reserve card to book the car rental will that give me insurance coverage for the car or do I need to give them a different credit card at the time of pickup?

The credit card you hand over at the actual location, should be on your name, and they will block money there etc.
It is that credit card whose insurance should protect you.

Great, would United Explorer card be a good one to use at the location?

But you are limiting yourself with the SUV, which seemingly only one company rents...
