Florence is situated in the Centre North of Italy and is reachable via the airport of Firenze-Peretola, but mostly via the train station of Santa Maria Novella, located in the city centre. From there, you can easily travel to Bologna in less than an hour and to Rome or Milan in less than two. The easiest way to move around Florence is by bus, as a good network of bus lines connects all the main points of the city and cars are often not allowed. The city centre is relatively small and distances are sometimes so short that it may make more sense to cycle or directly walk. But be aware: Florence is normally packed with tourists, so especially during day time, be ready to deal with flocks of visitors, stopping amazed at every corner of this beautiful city.
