Florence is the capital of the picturesque Tuscany region. It is the birthplace of the Reinessaince and home to world-class artworks which attract large masses of tourists. The historic centre is a large pedestrian area, with small alleys surrounding it, which have interesting stories to tell.
Must-see attractions in Florence
You will recognise the iconic Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, also known as the Duomo, on the photos of Florence. This cathedral with a red-tiled dome is one of the symbols of Florence. The Ponte Vecchio bridge spans over the Arno river and has high-end jewellery stores lined up on it. The Galleria dell’Accademia is the home of the famous statue David by Michelangelo, while the Uffizi Gallery is one of the world’s most significant art museums.
Bus, railway and taxi services
The historic city of Florence is a pedestrian area and best explored on foot. To reach different parts of the city or visit the rest of the Tuscany region, you can use public transport, taxi or rent a car in Florence.
The bus is the main public transport used by Florentines. There are four bus lines which cover a small area around the historic city centre. Also, there is a comprehensive network of bus routes which connect the Florence city centre to the suburbs. The intercity bus lines run to most cities in Tuscany region. As an addition to the bus network, there is only one tram line which connects the Florence Train Station to Scandicci.
Although it is a common practice in some cities to hail a taxi on the street, this is not the case in Florence. You should take one at the taxi ranks or call a taxi company. The Italy taxi service, in general, is satisfying, but you should be aware that most of the taxi drivers don’t speak English.
Public transport options from and to Florence airport
Florence airport is only 4 km from the city centre, and it’s relatively easy to reach it.
The VolaInBus bus operates between Florence airport and the city centre from 05:00 to 22:50 every day. It departs every 30 minutes from the airport, and it will take you to the Bus Italia Station, which is opposite the Florence Train Station.
Airport taxi service is available in front of the terminals. You can take an airport taxi at the dedicated taxi rank. They charge by the meter, and the taxi fare will depend on your destination.
