It is difficult not to fall in love with the beautiful city of Florence, Italy - declared a UNESCO heritage site.  As you drive your rent-a-car vehicle through the streets of the historical city, you are treated to an exhibit of some of the world's most renowned artistic landmarks - the Duomo di Firenze, Basilica di San Lorenzo and Uffizi Palace. Park your Florence rental car on designated parking lots and stroll the very same streets that the legendary artists Donatello, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci walked on.  Let the sunshine in and bring down the windows of your car hire and admire the fashionable locals in their stylish Gucci and Ferragamo threads.  Florence is often considered the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance; in fact, it has been called the Athens of the Middle Ages.

Going around Florence

Moving around Florence is easy.  There are 5 tourist offices scattered all over the city, where travelers can get maps, plan out their itinerary and hop on their car hire to weave through one of the world's most exquisite cities.  Maps indicate where rental car may be parked before heading to pedestrian-only zones.  There are tour buses and city buses in Florence, but a car rental is a leisurely way of getting acquainted with Florence on your own pace.

From the Airport

The Florence Amerigo Vespucci Airport connects Florence to the rest of Italy and Europe.  Rent-a-car offices can be found in the premises, so you can conveniently get off the plane, stow your luggage in your Florence rental car and zoom along the Firenze Nord superhighway to be welcomed by the sprawling splendor of the city of Florence.

Places to See

You'll definitely make the most of your Florence car rental as you will not be locking yourself up in your hotel room, but will be feasting your eyes on majestic works of art - museums, churches and monuments.  The Duomo di Firenze is the most distinguished architectural wonder of Florence. The cathedral was a collaboration of history's important artists, such as Filippo Brunelleschi (dome), Giorgo Vasari and Frederico Zuccari (dome paintings) and Giotto di Bondon (bell tower).  The Cathedral houses the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, which exhibits sculptures, relics, religious paintings and original parts of the baptistery.  Other sights that should not be missed are Piazzale Michelangelo, Ponte Vecchio, Orsanmichele and Loggia dei Lanzi.

Before you book your flight, hotel and Florence car rental, you might want to clear your schedule for March 25, as it is one of the best times to visit Florence.  March 25 marks the Florentine New Year, where tourists celebrate with the locals as they usher in spring and commemorate the Annunciation, when Angel Gabriel announced to the Virgin Mary that she will give birth to the Son of God.  This festive day is marked by heavenly Italian cuisine, musical performances and outdoor markets.

Attractions in Glorious Florence: A Travel Guide to the Italian City.
In the attractive region of Tuscany, Italy, one area shaped the form of travel throughout the country. That is the city of Florence. The once extremely wealthy metropolis was the birthplace of the Renaissance movement in the 14th century and in 1982, was declared a world heritage site. As well as an established trade for city break holidays, it is also a fashion centre for the world. However, what is there to do, while visiting? Many free and paid attractions are available to visitors. Here are our favourites.

Top Five Attractions of Florence, Italy

The Piazza della Signoria is the centre of activity in both daytime and night. A local meeting place, an ideal spot for people watching and the most popular choice for festivals and fairs. The L-shaped Square is also called the Palazzo Vecchio and consists of numerous ancient buildings of which the architectural aspect is interesting. Also worth looking for are numerous old statues of which one is a replica of the famous David statue by Michelangelo. To see the original sculpture, visit the Galleria dell’Accademia.

The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore – Il Duomo receives many visitors daily, who all want to admire the historic landmark because it is one of the largest churches in Italy and its dome, is the largest of its kind in the world. The cathedral is especially busy during Christian festivals.

The Ponte Vecchio Bridge is where every traveller heads to, for a holiday photograph of the city. Believed to have been built during Roman times, it has been reconstructed repeatedly, now housing shops and merchants, particularly jewellers and souvenir sellers.

Uffizi Gallery is notorious for its large collection of artwork including pieces by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Botticelli, and Raphael. Just three hours is needed to explore it at a leisurely place but book tickets before hand because it does receive many visitors. Its masterpiece collection is from the Renaissance period.

The Santa Maria district is perfect if you are looking for brand name clothing from Italian designers. However, it is the outdoor markets in the San Lorenzo district that prove the most popular. For artsy shopping such as vintage clothing and antiques, head to the Piazza Santo Spirito.

Travel Tips: A museum pass, also giving free access to public transport is available here.

Many thanks

The online booking was very easy and informative with a good range of vehicles.Although when we found we would be dealing with Maggiori, we were a little apprehensive, after reading some critical reviews. We selected an Audi A4 which was a little small,as we were a family of 5 with luggage, but I (mistakenly) thought it would be big enough. The payment was as expected with no surprises and the invoice provided was very well set out.

I have hired many vehicles in my 58 years of driving, and I must say the pick up and drop off experience was one of the best-instant courteous attention at both ends. The vehicle was in excellent condition and cleanliness. We hope that when we visit the Greek Islands next year your firm will provide us with a similarly pleasant experience.

Many thanks!
