The city center is closed to traffic, except for those with special permits, so you will find yourself doing most of your commuting on foot! Despite its narrow roads, Florence has a robust bus system for its size, with a fleet of almost 100 navigating the streets. The bus system runs from 6 am to 10 pm, with lines that take you around the city, or up to Piazzale Michelangelo. You can also use Mobikes, a bike-sharing system in Florence, should you choose to get some exercise out of your commute.
You can also ride the tram, or “Tramvia”, to move about the city. The Tramvia connects the city center to some important places such as the Airport (the cheapest way to get there!), the Careggi Hospital, Torregalli Hospital, and the University Pole of Novoli. Florence is home to the Santa Maria Novella railway station, with many trains arriving and departing from neighboring cities and towns. The rail station is an easy way to explore the Tuscan region, but the best way to explore Florence is on foot.
