Set at the foot of Mount Chianti, car hire in Figline Val D'Arno allows access to the broader Tuscan region, as well as putting you only 42 minutes' drive away from the Renaissance richness of Florence. Figline Val D'Arno is one of the 44 comuni of Florence, and, like most of the province, lies along the Arno river. Hiring a car in Figline Val D'Arno also enables you to access beautiful Siena, which is only one hour and twelve minutes away. In Figline Val D'Arno itself, explore the church of San Pietro al Terreno, sited here since 1148, though completely restored in the seventeenth century.
If you plan on hiring a car in Figline Val D'Arno, a day trip to Siena is unmissable - especially if you can visit on or around Siena's 'palio'. During this period, the city divides back into the 17 contradas it is made up of (like individual districts, or large family groups of the city). Each trains a jockey and a horse to win a race around Siena's central square. Rent a car in Figline Val D'Arno, and visit for sure. If you are not there during palio time, you will struggle to visualise the thousands of spectators and 17 horseback riders. It is an ancient celebration, and solemnly important - even husbands and wives from differing contradas return to their own families for the night before the race.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
