Florence Mini Guide

Florence is so well known and loved and there is so much to see that you can return and drive around so many times and still not see it all. Tourists flock to this famous city throughout the year to see the city's world class art and brilliant architecture, Florence being the home of Michelangelo.

The heart of the old city is perfect for exploring on foot as it is pedestrianised but hiring a car is essential for travelling further afield to places like Pisa (one hour 30 drive) and Chianti (45-minute drive), all linked by motorways, but be prepared to pay at Toll gates. The car hire offices are based in the town, near to the railway station (Santa Maria Novella) or at the airport, just check out our Car Hire Search Box. The sights are far too many to mention in this small piece but of note must be the Duomo, the Uffizi, and the Statue of David by Michelangelo. If you can tear yourself away from the city, it is also the capital of stunning Tuscany.
