Add-ons for car rental in Florence:
The center of Florence is closed to through-traffic and is known as the Zona Traffico Limitato (ZTL), which is divided into five subsections. Only buses, taxis and local residents with special permits can enter during all hours, while cars without permits are allowed in only before 7:30 am and after 7:30pm. During the summer months when more tourists are present typically brings even more restrictions to entering the ZTL. The ZTL is strictly enforced and if you enter illegally you will be subject to fines. Parking in the ZTL is also not possible although if staying at a hotel in the zone you may be able to arrange a 30 minute exemption.
However, having a rental car in Florence opens up your trip to all kinds of excursions outside the city. You have the chance to take scenic rides in the amazing Italian countryside and visit other nearby destinations. Day trips can be made to stops along the free SGC Firenze- Pisa-Livorno motorway or you can take the toll road to the north of Tuscany and visit Lucca. The Autostrada del Sole, south toll road will take you to Arezzo. Heading to the wine producing region of Chianti to drive the back roads where every curve opens up to a new stunning vista is also highly recommended. The Chiantigiana Road, or SR222, is one of the best routes to fully experience this landscape..
