As the birthplace of the cultural Renaissance, the city of Florence is an un-missable place to explore. The city centre is populated with piazzas lined with delicious eateries and bars to while away the evenings. For the day, car hire in Florence gives you instant access to all the historical tourist hotspots this city has to offer. From the Duomo to the Ponte Vecchio, all of these wonderful landmarks and more can easily be found. Hiring a car in Florence means a direct trip, taking in the beautiful Italian architecture while you travel. Take a break in the quiet but beautiful Giardino Bardini gardens before carrying on with your day.
Visiting Florence Whether you're a history fanatic or just keen to idle away the hours in one of Florence's best eateries watching the world go by, make sure you organise your time to see as much of Florence as possible. Fully explore the narrow city streets, but make sure you take yourself further afield to get more than the tourist's view of Florence. Hiring a car in Florence means you can get out of the narrow streets for the day and head out of the centre, but make time for one of the city's most famous establishments, the Caffè Giubbe Rosse.
The city's historic centre now stands as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Climb the 463 steps to the top of the Il Duomo Cathedral located in the Piazza Duomo, for stunning views over the city. Follow it up with the The Campanile bell tower and The Baptistery for a full Italian education. Finish your day on one of the many pavement cafes to people watch with delicious Italian cuisine. Rent a car in Florence to rack up the main tourist attractions, whether it be a whistle stop tour of the parks and squares, or taking advantage of the breath taking Renaissance artworks.

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.
