Viali di Circonvallazione, Via de' Tornabuoni, and Via Camillo Cavour are the three roads you want to keep an eye on in town. They don't just take you to various locations but also connect Florence to the rest of Italy and all of Europe. Florence is a tourist center and is a Limited Traffic Zone (ZTL) area.

You can also park at the airport, on the street, or outside Florence. Florence is very walkable and does not have a lot of vehicular traffic. However, you may find tourist centers too crowded.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind while driving in Florence?

With Florence car rentals, navigating the city is easy. But like many other cities, towns, and rural areas in Italy, it has ZTLs. There is limited access to the city centre to reduce congestion and pollution and make it conducive for local and foreign tourists. Each zone has its regulations, and you can get this information from road signs. Trespassing into the zoned areas will trigger fines. Some hired cars in Florence have no restrictions to ZTLs, and this is something you should find out about before you pick your ride.
