Rent a small car
You don't really need a car in Florence, but if you decide to get one, I'd recommend renting a small one. It'll be much easier to find parking spaces. Now, the car in the picture might be the extreme, but we did see several locals driving these buggies around.
I can´t recommend driving a car in Florence
NOT by car. If you are not used to drive in the Italian traffic you better keep yourself outside of Firenze.....There are so many one way streets that it´s hard to find your way... When you think you have a plan how to drive from one point to another it´s soon will be useless cause there will be a one way road in the wrong direction.....
The main station is situated right in the city center....
By foot or bus......The Italian are taking their Vespas! Best choice!
Drive there and leave you car...
Drive there and leave you car in a garage. Walk everywhere. Or better yet take a train.
Parking is hard so arrange for garage service through your hotel. Yes, that is a car the size of a moped in the picture!!! That way they can put it in a small space.
Travelling around Tuscany in a...
Travelling around Tuscany in a car could be a bit of an obstacle. If you decide to see Lucca, Pisa, Siena or San Gimagnano you'll probably come across quite a few rural roads which are slow and winding. However the scenery is really nice which should make up for the extra time spent travelling.
How to get around, are you...
How to get around, are you wondering? Ooohh..by car, by car, BY CAR, this is the order :-). Seriously, just in this way you'll be able to try all the shades, the changing landscapes, the awesome dramatic skylines, the breathtaking little towns appearing on the hill beneath the last bend of the road...
If you must have a car...
I would not want to drive around the city of Florence but if you had to do it, wouldn't this be the coolest.
