Firenze:

To drive to Firenze, go to Poggibonsi and take the motorway to Firenze, at the end of the highway, you enter the centre and follow signs to the centre or Santa Maria Novella (SMN) train station in the heart of city. At the station, there is a very large underground parking. From there you can walk to the centre. Otherwise we suggest you to catch the bus from Poggibonsi, the bus station is situated next to SMN station and therefore very close to the centre. Very important in the Middle Age, it was the capital of the Granducato di Toscana, under the rule of the Medici and Lorraine Families. It was the capital of Italy from 1865 to 1870, after the unification of the Country.
