Transportation in Florence


As the centro-storico (historic centre) is mostly closed to traffic, Florence's efficient buses run almost exclusively on the principal streets. Several small electric buses cover the otherwise pedestrian-only areas.


Florence is compact so a taxi is only needed when travelling with heavy luggage. Minimum fares are expensive and the complex one-way system and pedestrianised zones make even short journeys laboriously long. There are ranks at the airport and immediately outside the main train station (Santa Maria Novella).


Florence's narrow medieval streets were made for walking and horse-drawn carts. Walking is still the quickest and most enjoyable way of getting around a city that is a work of art in itself. Stroll around at night to have the streets to yourself.

Rent your car

It is possible to drive into Florence, but there is a restricted traffic area (ZTL, Zona a Traffico Limitato) in the historic city centre. If you’re staying at a hotel, you need to give them your car registration details in advance so the city police will allow you drive in.

Transportation tips

Wear comfortable shoes for sightseeing. If you envisage frequent bus journeys, pick up a pack of four tickets called biglietto multiplo, or a 24-hour, or three-day pass at tabacchi (newsagents). Be sure to stamp your ticket in the box at the rear of the bus to avoid a hefty fine. Pick up a bus map at the tourist office near the station.
