Getting around Florence
The best way to get around Florence is on foot. In fact, you can walk from one end of the city to the other in about 30 minutes, passing many recognizable sites along the way. Hopping aboard an ATAF bus is another option.
It is important to know that Florence’s main historic center is small so that it is easy to move around on foot. Using a car around Florence is not advisable, as there is little parking, many streets are pedestrian only and streets are often one-way.
Make sure to ask for a map of Florence at one of the five tourist information offices so you can plan your movements around the city. Many hotels also offer publications with their own maps, in case you can’t get to the tourist offices right away.
