Top ways to enter Florence

  • Florence Airport. Although not especially large, it is the main airport in Florence. Located some10 km (6 miles) northwest of the city centre, the airport has flights by 20 different airlines, including the low-cost carrier Vueling.
  • Pisa Airport. The busiest in Tuscany, Pisa Airport serves the famous city of the leaning tower. The distance from Florence is 83 km (52 miles), a distance that can be made in about 1 hour and 15 minutes by car.
  • Other airports. There are a number of other Italian international airports that travellers often use to get to Florence. The most notable of these are Milan Malpensa Airport (about a 4-hour drive northwest of Florence), Bergamo Airport (4 hours north), and Rome Fiumicino Airport (a bit over 3 hours south).

Top destinations and activities

  • Santa Maria del Fiore. Of all the famous buildings of the city, Florence Cathedral is arguably the most notable one. Dating back to the 13th century, it embodies a number of architectural styles so important to the city’s distinct, iconic look. Admire the dome, nave, facade, and Giotto’s tower from the outside, but don’t miss out on the statues inside, such as Donatello’s original David.
  • Uffizi. Another landmark of Florence that simply shouldn’t be missed, Uffizi is a sanctuary of Italian art. Located on the north bank of the Arno river, the gallery has been open since the 16th century and is now the most visited of all the famous art museums in Italy.
  • Great Synagogue and Jewish Museum. One of the most notable institutions of its kind in Italy, this museum explains the fascinating history of the Florentine Jews throughout the centuries. The synagogue building, or Tempio Maggiore, itself dates back to the late 19th century and is known for its three light blue domes. A small, but vibrant Jewish community of about 1,500 people continues to live in Florence today.

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. 
  • Main highways are limited to 130 km/h, non-major highways to 110 km/h, and local roads to 90 km/h. When it’s raining, the limits are respectively lowered to 110 km/h, 100 km/h, and 80 km/h. The general speed limit is lowered to 50 km/h during heavy fog or other cases of bad visibility.
  • Proof of insurance and the car’s documentation need to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
  • When driving, you need to have your passport or ID card 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 and even imprisonment. 
  • The emergency number, like elsewhere in the EU, is 112.

Toll roads

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 a day-trip

  • Pisa. The other world-famous city of Tuscany, Pisa is more than just the Torre Pendente (the leaning tower) — the city is consistently picturesque and boasts plenty of architectural and ecclesiastical landmarks. The drive from Florence takes about 90 minutes. Unlike Florence, Pisa is practically on the coast and just a short drive from a number of attractive beach towns.
  • Bologna. If Florence didn’t manage to quench your thirst for artistic delight and sophistication, visiting Bologna is a logical next step. A learned city, it is home to one of the oldest universities in the world, as well as truly world-class cuisine. The drive from Florence takes just under two hours.

Most popular cars
