Moving around Florence

It is important to know that Florence’s main historic center is relatively 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. A fleet of small electric buses also provides links between main key areas in the center.

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.
