Travelling by bus and train – with your Florence City Pass

Bus in front of Florence Cathedral

The tram in Florence connects the outer districts with the city centre. The well-developed bus network will also take you to sights outside the city centre.

Many sights in Florence can be reached on foot – or by bus and train

Bus and train are included in your Florence City Pass

Tramway: 

The T1-Leonardo line connects the municipality of Scandicci with the Santa Maria Novella railway station in Florence. It then continues to the north of the city to Careggi Hospital. The T2-Vespucci line connects the airport to the city. Both lines run approximately every 5 minutes.

Bus: 

The most practical means of transport in Florence are the regional ATAF buses. The bus network is extensive, so you can actually reach everything by bus. The C lines run through the historic city centre along the sights.
