    Florence, the capital of Tuscany, is spread across the banks of the Arno river between the Adriatic and Tyrrhenian seas. As a bustling vibrant city, the mix of culture, art and history create an elegant and sophisticated setting for your perfect Tuscan holiday. The grand "Cattedrale de Santa Maria del Fiore" is Florence's fundamental church with sweeping gothic architecture, elaborate paintings and tombs. Michelangelo's David, housed in the Accademia Gallery is not to be missed with a visit to Leonardo Da Vinci Museum and the famous Uffizi Gallery completing the artistic discovery. The Mercato Nuovo and Vecchio - New and Old Markets were originally intended for the sale of silk and luxury goods and are now home to the finest leather goods in Florence. Situated on the south bank of the Arno, the Palazzo Pitti is a 15th-century palace and the residence of Florence's rulers until 1919. The palace is open to visitors so you can experience the air and atmosphere of this magnificent renaissance home inside and out.

    Parking and Tolls

    The city of Florence has a limited traffic zone (ZTL). This restricts access only to cars with a permit. As such parking within this zone is difficult and not recommended. Some private car parks are located within the ZTL zone but charge premium fees. Outside of the ZTL parking for visitors is only permitted in blue marked spaces. Parking machines are often located nearby and parking needs to be paid per hour. Note that white lines/spaces indicate the parking spot are only for residents. Generally, the cost is €4 for the first hour and €2 per hour after.

    Tolls on the Autostrada, Italy's highway system, are required to be paid by cash or card. You must take a ticket upon entering, and the total cost will be calculated upon exit.
