Top ways to enter Florence

  • Florence Airport (FLR): Located near the city center, Florence Peretola Airport (also known as Florence Amerigo Vespucci Airport) serves such varied European destinations as Spain, the United Kingdom, Albania, and Moldova, as well as many domestic destinations.
  • Pisa Airport (PSA): Just over an hour’s drive from Florence and popular with low-cost carriers, flying to nearby Pisa Galileo Galilei Airport is another great way to reach Florence. 
  • Bologna Airport (BLQ): An hour and a half’s drive north of Florence, Bologna’s Guglielmo Marconi Airport is one of the largest and busiest in Italy.
  • Livorno Port: Around a 90-minute drive west of Florence, Livorno Port also has car rental facilities. Ferries from Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, and Barcelona arrive at the port. 

City facts

  • The capital of the region of Tuscany, Florence has more than 1,500,000 inhabitants living in its metropolitan area.
  • The hottest months in Florence are July and August when the average daily high temperature reaches around 25 °C (77 °F), although it can get much warmer during the day. The coldest months are December and January when the average temperature is about 6.5 °C (44 °F).

Top sights and activities

  • Uffizi. It is no exaggeration to say that Uffiz, the trademark of Florence, is one of the most important art museums in the world. Dating back to the late 16th century and thus very much encompassing the spirit of the birthplace of the Renaissance, it is home to too many famous works of art to be named. Visit its English-language website to learn more about admission or take a preview peak by treating yourself to a virtual tour. 
  • Gallery of the Academy. Though its most centrally situated, and most famous, work of art is undoubtedly Michelangelo’s statue of David, the Galleria dell’Academia is also home to masterpieces of such masters as Botticelli and del Sarto. The relatively small museum welcomes about 1.5 million visitors every year.
  • Palazzo Vecchio. Still functioning as Florence’s town hall, this impressive palace is an impressive architectural monument.  Don’t miss the Hall of 500 or the Hall of Geographic Maps.. It is also famous for the replica of Michelangelo's "David" that’s placed right outside it, in the original location of the statue.
  • Boboli Gardens. Visitors to this green area next to Pitti Palace can observe both interesting sculptures and great views of the rest of Florence.
  • Piazza del Duomo. Florence’s  Cathedral Square is the beating heart of the city. Much of the city’s magnificent history can be read from the square’s buildings. These include the Cathedral itself, an Italian Gothic architectural masterpiece that is the third-largest church in the world, as well as Giotto’s Bell Tower, the Baptistery, and the Duomo Museum.
  • Bargello Museum. Another impressive art museum, the Bargello is located in a 13th-century building that served as a prison and barracks until the 19th century. Dedicated to the art of sculpture, the museum has a collection that includes the important works of many famous Renaissance artists — not just Michelangelo, but also Donatello, Giambologna, and many more. 

Traffic and parking

  • The speed limit in cities is 50 km/h, although in certain areas the speed limit may be reduced to 30 km/h. 
  • The speed limit on the Autostrada (toll road) is 130 km/h, reduced to 110 km/h if it’s raining.  The speed limit on highways ranges from 90-110 km/h.  
  • If you’re the driver, you need to have your driver’s license and International Driving Permit (if required for you) with you at all times.
  • The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.00% for novice drivers. Being over the allowed limit can result in hefty fines.
  • The emergency number, like elsewhere in the EU, is 112.
  • It’s easiest to park outside the city walls and walk or take public transport or a taxi into the historic center.  Blue lines are pay parking.
  • Be careful not to enter the ZTL (zona traffico limitato - limited traffic zone) if you don’t have permission. 

Toll roads

There are numerous toll roads in Italy. The exact fee depends on the route of your choice and the type of a vehicle. See the official Italian toll road website for more information. Use the website’s toll road calculator to find out exactly how much you’ll have to pay for using the toll roads on your planned route.

Ideas for day trips

  • Pisa. The main attraction of this nearby Tuscan city is, of course, its famous leaning tower, but the city also offers plenty in terms of history, character, and cuisine. Better yet, Pisa is just a stone’s throw from the Tuscan coastline and many enjoyable beaches. The drive from Florence takes about an hour and 20 minutes, with plenty of potential bucolic detours on the way. 
  • Tuscan countryside. For many visitors, a trip to visit Chianti wineries is a highlight of their Italian travels. The surrounding hilltop  villages are idyllic. Head south to visit the Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and photographer’s dream.  It’s also the home of pecorino cheese and famous wines like Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
  • Arezzo. Just over an hours drive south of Florence lies Arezzo, a former Etruscan town. it is home to a lovely old town dereft of crowds. It also hosts a well-known antique market in the main square once a month. 
  • Viareggio. Speaking of the coast, one good place to enjoy it is Viareggio, a small town about a 90-minute drive from Florence (and just north of Pisa). While most of Viareggio’s beaches are private, it can serve as a gateway to some lovely coastal spots in its immediate vicinity. Viareggio is also famous for its large and colorful carnival that takes place every February and, despite its name, is actually held in the town’s next-door neighbor of Torre del Lago.
  • Lucca.  A favorite of many visitors of Tuscany, Lucca has a quiet city center, beautiful piazzas, and wide city walls that you can cycle on. Its main architectural landmark is the snow-white cathedral that’s built from marble obtained in the nearby hills. The inland capital of the province of the same name, Lucca is very near both Pisa and Viareggio, so all three can be visited on the same trip.

Further destinations

For more about traveling around Italy with a rental car, check out our complete guide.

  • Northern Italy. Cities like Milan, Ravenna, Venice, and Bologna  are easily reached with a rental car.
  • Rome. Italy’s timeless capital can be explored for weeks, and its contemporary arts scene and amazing cuisine can very nearly rival its countless historic landmark.
  • Southern Italy. Southern Italy’s impressive nature, incredible ruins, and hospitable locals are just a few reasons why some travelers like it even more than the north.

Money-saving tips

There are things you can do to get a good rental deal in Florence:

  • Compare rates of different rental car providers
  • Book your rental car well in advance
  • Plan your route before you go
  • Know your fuel and mileage requirements
  • Visit on the month when the rental prices are the cheapest. Visiting Mainland Italy during the low season might be at least two times cheaper than coming here during the high season of tourism.
  • Visit during low seasons - outside of summer months and major holidays (like Easter, Ferragosto, Christmas).
  • Explore pickup locations.  A nearby town that’s reached easily by train may have a better rate.
  • Don’t rent a car for time you’ll spend in cities.  It will just sit in a parking lot or garage (and you’ll need to pay for parking!).
  • Look into renting ‘open jaw’ - pick up your car in one destination and drop it off in another.  While you will likely need to pay a supplement for your car rental, you’ll save money on gas and tolls and you’ll save precious vacation time!
  • Visit during the month the rental prices are the cheapest. According to our data, visiting Florence is the cheapest in April when renting a car - about 44% cheaper than the yearly average and a whopping 60% cheaper than renting a car in June.

We had a lovely time in Florence - a really pretty, historic city with lots to see. Recommend La Bussola for evening meal! Also recommend Santa Trinita for yummy gelato! Definitely take a trip up Brunelleschi's Dome and book beforehand - nearly 500 steps but worth it for the stunning views over the city. Driving to Perugia from there (about 180km) was very easy and the charges on the toll road were not much at all. Perugia was smaller but also pretty and full of history. As it's placed on a hill, the lower car parks had escalators from there up to the city, which was great on a hot day! The outdoor car parks are easier to enter and exit (not ridiculously narrow gaps to drive through) and better prices. Assisi was the final place we visited. Go early in the day to make parking easier and to avoid the crowds. We went on a Sunday morning, so experienced the church bells and saw/heard several church services, giving a sense of the life there. What a stunning place - really, really pretty with beautiful little streets and fabulous views. Again, it's on a hill so, if you want to cover a lot of ground and see everything, be prepared to walk up and down steep roads. So, so worth it though. Given where we stayed in Umbria - lovely but fairly isolated - having the car allowed lots of opportunities that we wouldn't otherwise have had! Thank you to Discover Cars and Sicily by Car!

We drove from Florence to Tuscany and back. The A1 freeway was excellent. You can use your credit card to pay for tolls on that major north/south freeway. Driving was a little nervy to start but soon got comfortable. Be sure to use Google Maps or similar on your phone. It was immensely helpful. Be sure to photograph or video all of your rental car before leaving the rental lot so you can prove that you did not cause any damage that was existing prior to your rental period. Outside and inside. Beware of speed cameras on roads. Most map apps alert you prior to approaching one. Just obey the laws and all will be good.

We used the car to drive from Florence to Rome via the Tuscan hillsides on the SR222! This was the scenic route through Tuscany and it was just incredible. Literally seemed as if we were in a fairytale land with castles and vineyards. Majestic and drive of a lifetime!

Driving (even for just a part of your trip) gives you some freedom to explore. You will see things you otherwise would not have.

If you are planning to visit the Tuscany countryside and its beautiful small towns, then a car is the best way to get around. Splash a bit of money for it, it's worth the cost!

If in Florence, do yourself a favor and drive to the maremma and southern Tuscan coast. Stayed at Porto Santo Stefano and took day trips to Talamone, Pitigliano, Sorano, Scansano, and Saturnia.

I went to Valle d’Orcia and had a great time. Offcourse Montepulciano is a great place to go.

We rented a car to go to the Pisa/Lucca region, NOT to visit Florence. Inside the city, a rental car is NOT a good solution due to high parking fees and limited traffic zones. Between cities it's perfect: fluid traffic, good to acceptable roads.

Florence and the Chianty region are great places to drive around in. All road signs are very clear and easy to follow. Get lost will never be a problem

Florence is lovely but the surroundings offer marvellous location to the direction of Chianti, where you can find numerous small towns and villages that are different in atmosphere from each other as well as the lovely mountain routes there that offer spectacular views! Poppi around 50-60 km east of Florence is worth a visit and the rout there as well is just amazing! Remember to eat before 2:30 pm or otherwise you might starve...!
