Do you like fast driving? Try not to do this in the city and its surroundings; proceedings with local road patrol service will not add charm to your vacation. Speed limits specified in Florence:

All this time, we've been speaking how to make the most of your trip budget. Now let's talk about how to avoid unexpected expenditures, for example, fines. Most of them can be avoided by following generally adopted rules of conduct, law-abiding behaviour, sticking to street cleanliness, and public order. However, be attentive to various warning signs on the streets and buildings, therefore, avoiding having lunch in the wrong place or accidentally entering a restricted area.
Please note that drivers under 25 and over 70 are often less trusted at the provider's office and are subject to an extra payment when renting. The policies of your car rental company may be found on our website in the Age Restrictions section.
