There are many great reasons to arrange Florence car hire. Read on to discover some of the best...
Florence is world renowned for its collection of art galleries and museums such as the Uffizi Gallery, with works by Renaissance greats including Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci. Florence is full of historic squares, piazzas and villas that make up the majority of the city centre. It can be explored on foot, as well as riverboat tours on the Arno, although it can be worth making use of car rental, too, in order to explore all that the city has to offer.
After a day spent wandering galleries and Florentine palaces, or perhaps taking in some shopping in the city centre, you can relax in one of the many restaurants clustered around the piazzas. Enjoy a bowl of pasta with a glass of wine from the vineyards of the Tuscan countryside, which can themselves be explored if you grab a hire car in Florence.
Florence is also known for its musical heritage and the abundance of theatres throughout the city, allowing you the chance to experience a night at the opera during your visit to this cultural hotspot.

When you book car hire, Florence becomes an excellent base for further travels in Tuscany...
By making use of car rental during your trip to the city you can explore the surrounding countryside, including the vineyards and orchards of the Tuscan region, as well as neighbouring cities such as Pisa and Bologna.
You’ve no doubt seen images of Tuscany. Pictures of cypress trees fingering their way towards skies of deep blue, hilltop towns that appear to have been frozen in time and captured on canvas by Michelangelo himself. Images lit by an orange glow that casts long shadows over the land where grapes and olives harness the sun and thrive.
The great news is that Tuscany is just as mesmerizingly beautiful as the brochures would have you believe. Visit places such as Siena (an hour south of Florence by road), the walled city of Lucca (an hour to the west) and the towers of San Gimignano, which can be reached in less than an hour. These attractive destinations make for easy day trips from Florence.
The famed leaning tower of Pisa will loom into view in around 70 minutes when you set out in your hire car from Florence. There’s more to see than the tower, which brave tourists can ascend, though most visitors make just a day of it in Pisa.
Bologna, in the Emilia-Romagna region, is a 90-minute trip to the north of Florence and famed for its spice-tinted architecture and delicious Bolognese sauce (order tagliatelle ragu for the real thing).
This appetising treat is just another great reason to book car rental in Florence.
