What to do while in Florence

You can’t miss the most celebrated feature of the city, one of the most famous cathedrals in the world, the Duomo. It’s right in the centre of the city, standing out above the rest of the skyline. This is also where you can see the original iconic statue of David, in the Galleria dell’Accademia. You should also treat yourself to a day trip to the Chianti Hills when you rent a car in Florence. It offers wonderful vistas of the Tuscan countryside.  

Summer 2021 in Florence

In summer, head to the Boboli Gardens, a 16th-century botanical park with a collection of obelisks and fountains. Florence is only about a 1.5-hour drive from Pisa, where you can see that city’s famous Leaning Tower. For the best views over Florence itself, drive to Piazzale Michelangelo, on a hill on the south bank of the Arno River that runs through the city. While you’re at the river, visit the Ponte Vecchio Bridge that purportedly dates back to the 1st century AD.

Positive experience with Sixt ! Some negative comments made us be extra careful (checking the prices, taking videos before starting the location, checking additional options…) but all in all the rental and the service went very well ! Would use this agency again if needed.

After previously renting from Sixt in Germany, I reserved a rental with them for my recent road trip through Italy. You read of bad experiences with rental companies but I never worried for a moment with Sixt. Before I arrived, I received emails confirming my reservation and the vehicle I had ordered was waiting for me when I went to pick it up. The little Fiat Panda hybrid was spotless and because there were a couple of unfamiliar design elements for a Canadian driver, the personable and patient staff member at Sixt, took me through them.

Returning the car was fast and easy. Again, the staff member was efficient and very friendly.

There were no hiccups or surprises renting from Sixt. The combination of a wide selection of vehicles and top notch staff make this a company I will turn to again when I return to Europe.

The pick up at the Florence train station could not have been easier- the agent was very friendly and helpful. They even brought the car to us so when we came out of the station the car was there!

Incredible rental experience. Check in was quick, kind and helpful. Car was exactly as ordered and in good shape. For reference, a Fiat 500L will fit 3 hard sided 26” suitcases standing up (with rear seats all the way back) or on their sides (with rear seats all the way up. We fit 3 medium Away bags and carry-ons in the boot.


Also have to give a shout out to the returns agent! He’s the best! In and out in 10 minutes.
