"Driving in Florence" Driving Tip by mileslunn

Driving, Florence: 13 reviews and 5 photos

Like most European cities, Florence doesn't use a grid and in fact can be extremely difficult navigating around, so best to have a map handy and know all the street names you need to follow to get to your destination. Street signs are on the sides of buildings so pay close attention. In addition drive carefully as Italian drivers have a reputation of not liking rules and rarely signal or follow the rules, so don't assume everybody will follow the rules. Especially watch out for the scooters who have a strong tendency to cut in front of cars without warning.
