Via de Banchi is a street situated in the heart of Florence. It is near the area of Santa Maria Novella from where the famous Church takes it's name from.

Near to the Central Station is has easy access to the centre of the city.

Florentine like the Cathedral also called Santa Maria dei Fiore, which is famous for the Dome of Bruneleschi and the Bell Tower by Giotto.

From the top of the Tower you can see the whole city.

Another interesting point near Via de Banchi is Piazza Signoria with the beautiful Palazzo Vecchio from where the Mayor of Florence has his office.

Next to Palazzo Vecchio is the famous Uffizi Art Gallery where you can find paintings by some of the most artists.

Parking facilities:

For visitors arriving by car it is important to know that the center of Florence, which is divided into two sectors, allows only limited traffic; only those drivers who have permits may enter, circulate freely and park on the streets.

The historical centre is a limited traffic zone (ZTL): access is prohibited to non residents' vehicles from Monday to Friday 7:30am - 7:30pm and on Saturdays 7:30am - 6:00 pm. Outside these hours everyone may drive and park in the center. During the summer time there are some further restrictions at night.

The access to ZTL is controlled by electronic detection devices that register the plate number and fine non authorized vehicles. However at the beginning of the access to ZTL there is a special traffic light that inform if the access is allowed or not.

Once entered in the city centre during the off limits time you must park into garages. There are many gargeges in Florence. especially in the San Lorenzo and Station area. The average garage price per day for a medium-sized auto is 25 Euros.

However, I strongly suggest that you not arrive in Florence with a car, unless you are returning a hired car. The train station, Santa Maria Novella, is centrally located, as are the main bus companies. Lucca, Pisa, Siena, Rome and Venice have good train connections to Florence, which is located in the center of Italy and is an excellent base for all excursions.

If you've rented a car to move around Tuscany and plan to visit Florence for a day, it is best to leave your car in one of the many car parks that surround the historical center and avoid entering the ZTL area.

IMPORTANT NOTICE about the Floor numbers:

When an Italian apartment is described as being on the first floor, it is on what would be called the second floor in standard American terminology. In Italy we start from the level zero or ground floor. In the offerings of Florence & Tuscany, "ground floor" means that there are no steps to climb (unless otherwise indicated). In the offerings of Florence & Tuscany, "first floor" doesn't mean one flight stairs, but indicates the location of the apartment in relation to building.
