Discover Florence and surroundings by car
With a hire car you can go on an Italian adventure like never before. The city of Florence is home to some of the world’s most beautiful architecture with the Piazza della Signoria being dominated by the 14th century tower of the Palazzo Vecchio – Florence’s medieval city hall. This construction rests on top of the ancient theatre of the Roman colony of Florentia which dates back to the first century AD; the remains of which can be admired from the lower level.
The Florence Baptistery is also a marvel and then there’s Giotto’s Campanile which is a spectacular gothic tower providing breath-taking views across the city. Art galleries decorate the city too with the most famous being the Uffizi Gallery and the Accademia which houses Michelangelo’s famous statue, David. What’s more, look out for San Marco – a religious complex in Florence which is now a museum and Bargello, a former barrack and prison open to the public.
There’s so much culture to enjoy throughout Florence but if you want to tour the vineyards of Tuscany or head west to Pisa you can when you hire a car. Florence is also perfectly situated for a trip to the global fashion capital of Milan to the north and Rome to the south.
Driving in Florence
When in Italy, drive on the right hand side of the road and overtake on the left. Road networks are usually well-maintained but as the historic city centre was not designed with modern day traffic needs in mind, navigating the heart of Florence requires more care.
Florence’s centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which means traffic is limited. ZTL or Limited Traffic Zones prevent mainstream traffic from entering for most of the day. Access is normally allowed during the evening only unless you are a permit holder.
Outside the ZTL areas there are paid parking zones with visitors being required to leave their vehicle in the blue marked spaces and to pay in advance. Private garages are also dotted throughout the city for your convenience.
