Florence Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

A city that needs no introduction, Florence is one of Italy’s (and Europe’s) most famous destinations - many Italians even find it more beautiful than Rome or Venice. A city that lives and breathes art and history, Florence is simultaneously a modern cultural hotspot, and also offers access to the rest of the region of Tuscany. With that in mind, these are three of the most interesting attractions in and around it:

  • Florence Cathedral. Also known as Santa Maria del Fiore or simply “the Duomo,” the Cathedral of Florence is arguably the main symbol of this famous city. A monumental effort of various generations, it took 140 years to finish, but the result is one of the most impressive churches in Europe. The statues, paintings, and interior of the cathedral can be just as awe-inspiring as its facade.  You can even climb up to the top of the dome!

  • The Uffizi Galleries. If the Duomo is the main building of the city, The Uffizi is the mother of all Florentine museums. One of the oldest in Europe — it turns 442 in 2023 — the art museum is home to countless masterpieces, including some by Caravaggio, Rembrandt, da Vinci, and Michelangelo. Visit the museum’s official English language website to learn more. 

  • Montepulciano. Chianti, Tuscany’s most famous wine-growing region, is close to Florence, and if you head even further south, you’ll find more excellent Tuscan wines.. One such place to visit is Montepulciano, a hilltop destination that is as known for its well-preserved architecture as it is for its excellent wines, including Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Vino Rosso di Montepulciano. The area’s wineries are fascinating to visit - just remember to book ahead, as many Tuscan wineries don’t accept walk-ins.  . The drive from Florence to Montepulciano takes about 90 minutes.

You will need to rent a car to truly enjoy Tuscany. Always book a hotel with free parking and flexibility to leave your car there for a few hours after checking out so that you can go into town without the car. You can walk, bike or take public transport. This is what we did in Florence, Siena and Lucca. Pisa seems to have more adequate parking arrangements. Parking in Pienza and San Gimignano can be very challenging, unless you come early in the morning. Google Maps’ instructions often don’t match the actual road signs — for example, Google Maps will refer to highway numbers, which are often not signed, or street names when these are not always posted. Key is to study the general direction of travel in advance.

We went to the Tuscan region and it was pretty straightforward to get on the E35 to get there. Google maps helps a lot as well as having a passenger to help navigate. The tolls were also easy and straightforward. It is best to have some euro coins to pay. If you can drive a manual transmission, you save a lot of money on the rental and it is fun to drive around the windy roads of Tuscany. I would not recommend driving in any of the major cities. Very complicated.

I have a smartphone with a map application + GPS + navigation. Considering the number of roads and road patterns I found the electronic guidance VERY helpful. There is not much time to rely on paper maps unless you know the route. It looks like many people arriving in Florence rent a car to tour the countryside--a good idea but it means packing some patience when a plane load of people line up for rental cars. Ecovia is not as well known as some other brands so lines are shorter. My rental was a very good deal. I covered 1600km, it would have cost more to go by train.

If you're planning to explore the Tuscan countryside, it's definitely worth renting a car, so that you're in control of your time and destinations. I highly recommend paying extra for the GPS, mostly for navigating to and from Florence airport and getting into the countryside. This was my first time driving in a foreign country and it was much less stressful than I anticipated.
