With your car hire in Florence, you will be free to enjoy this gorgeous Italian city filled with culture, architecture and art at your own pace. Cheap car hire in Florence will require some documentation. An internationally recognised driver’s licence or a UK driver’s licence is needed along with your valid passport. Be sure to have an international credit card to cover the costs and insurance and you will be ready to take to the streets with your Florence car hire.
Florence car hire should be easy for you if you know the basic rules of the road. You will drive on the right-hand side of the road in this well-marked city. Florence has many roundabouts, which may be daunting, so always remember you will need to give way to traffic in the circle coming from the right. Buckle up in your hired car in Florence, and ensure children under 12 are either in an infant or booster seat. Speed limits are 30 mph in the city and urban areas, 56 to 68 mph on national roads and 80 mph on motorways. Stay under the blood alcohol limit of 0.05%, and do not honk your horn in suburban areas or near hospitals. Check the local motor vehicle association for any changes in road rules, to ensure you are up to speed on all the basics before you set off in your cheap car hire in Florence.
Car hire in Florence is a great way to enjoy one of the biggest Italian cities. You will not be allowed to drive in the ZTL zone of the main city, which is restricted to pedestrians, taxis and emergency vehicles. Traffic can be congested around the city, so an economy car hire in Florence may be ideal for getting around the narrow streets and motorways alike, as they are light on fuel and easy to zip around in. A passenger car hire or convertible is equally appropriate for the location, depending on your preference. There are some fantastic day trips you could take with your car hire in Florence, such as Pisa to see the Leaning Tower, Bologna for the fantastic food trails and Siena, an Italian architectural wonder.
Park your hired car in Florence with confidence when you find a covered car park in the city centre. Because of the ZTL zone, you will always be expected to park and walk a short distance to get to the main attractions, but many of the good car parks are relatively close by. Most parking areas in Florence charge an average of €20-30 (£16-26) daily. Try the Grand Garage Ponte Vecchio, which stays open until midnight every day; Park2Go will place you right outside Duomo Square and is open until 01:00 daily; whilst Garage Palazzo Vecchio is also open until 01:00 daily and a short walk from Palazzo Vecchio.
