Staying in Florence with a car

Jump to last reply

Hello Everyone,

My wife and I are planning a four day, four night trip to Tuscany in mid-May. We are flying into Milan (cheapest flight we could find) and already have a car booked there for the duration of our trip. After reading many reviews and exploring many options, we would like to base ourselves if Florence, and take day trips to various Tuscany country side towns. We would really like to keep the car as for ease of exploration, but we understand that driving in Florence is a terrible idea.

Is there a hostel/hotel/B&B in Florence that would not be an absolute horror to drive to and find parking?

Would ditching the car, taking a train from Milan to Florence, and using buses to tour the country side a better idea?

Any suggestions will be helpful to an unexperienced Tuscany traveler.
