We will be renting a car during our 5 day stay in Tuscany and my husband would like to go into Florence once or twice to see the city. I've heard that driving in Florence is awful (or can be really confusing for those who haven't done it before).
Is there any place where we can park on the outskirts of town and then take some kind of transit (bus/train) into the city?
Is this a smart idea for going in to see Florence? Or are there any other suggestions?
We'll have a GPS unit and plan to update the Europe map a few days before we leave for our trip, but I'm not sure if all the rules are on the maps for our GPS (i.e. the one way roads and everything).
