Traffic Information

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..

Sixt Tips

Florence is known for being one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and it is full of splendid attractions. The birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, it is home to wonderful, world-famous art and architecture. It is home to over 80 museums and some of the most famous art galleries in the world such as the Uffizi and Pitti Palace. Sculputure is also a core part of Florence's treasures and the Bargello and Museums of the Works of the Duomo are host two of the finest collections. Visitors can marvel at masterpieces by the likes of Donatello, Michelangelo, Verrochio and more. One of the most well-known works, Michelangelo's David, can be viewed at the Accademia.

Sightseeing Destinations

San Miniato

San Miniato is a charming hilltop town that dominates the lower Arno valley. It is home to many interesting attractions enclosed within its medieval precinct. Numerous renaissance palazzi built by famous aristocratic families, including the ancestors of Napoleon, are also having a look while making your way around town. However, if you can , plan to visit during the last three weeks of November when the precious white truffles of the region are harvested. The lively Sagra del Tartufo festival is annually held to honor this delicacy, even more valuable than the sought after black truffle.
