There’s no bad time to go to Florence as many of the city’s attractions are indoors, but if you go during summer, it will be busy and hot. Temperatures rise to 86 – 88 degrees Fahrenheit, and it can be humid. In August, many of Florence’s residents take a holiday and flee the city, and some attractions will close. The shoulder seasons of spring and fall are much more comfortable but are again busy with crowds of tourists. Book your flights and accommodation ahead of time to avoid disappointment. You might plan a visit during winter because you can find good deals on flights and rooms with fewer tourists arriving in Florence between December and February. Temperatures of between 33 – 50 degrees Fahrenheit are not exactly frigid, but you should pack a warm coat, hat and gloves for wandering around the city.

Florence is extremely walkable, as its historic center is very compact compared to other major European cities. Parts of it are even pedestrian only. When your feet need a break, you can use the local buses, as do many of the locals, or hail a taxi. Your rental car might be useful for trips outside of the city but will be more of a hindrance within Florence.

You can buy single ride or multi-ride tickets at any authorized sales point (anyone with an ATAF sticker on their shop windows) and they cost €1.20 EUR for a single ride, with a 4-ride ticket costing € 4.70 EUR. If you purchase a ticket from your bus driver it will cost more, usually €2.00 EUR.

Taxis

You can hail a taxi at the train station or find them outside of most tourist attractions. If can’t find one, just call for a ride. Flag drop is €3.30 EUR Monday – Saturday, €5.30 EUR on Sundays and holidays, and €6.60 EUR between 10 pm and 6 am. The scatto (per-unit charge) is €0.10 EUR, but the units vary depending on how long the ride takes, and there are charges for bags that are large enough to go in the trunk.
