Public Transportation in Florence Reviews
Travelling by bus in Florence. Mar 23, 2017
Most of the main sights in the city are within walking distance of each other, but you may be tired of walking or you have to go somewhere far from the city center; for instance to piazzale Michelangelo.
Urban transportation in Florence is run by ATAF (Azienda Trasporti Area Fiorentina). It provides a network of bus lines that serves Florence and surroundings. ATAF buses run around the city from 6 a.m. until 1 a.m..
Tickets and bus passes are sold at tobacconists, bars and at many newstands. You can buy your ticket on the bus too, but you' ll have to pay a bit more than the ordinary price.
Don' t forget to validate your ticket in a box inside the bus to avoid a steep fine.

The buses in Florence are well organized and cover all the city.
The tickets and bus passes can be purchased at Piazza Stazione, bars, newstands, stores. Tickets must be stamped on the machines on board. At night, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., tickets can be purchased on board of the bus.
The rates are inside the city are:
1hr - 1 Eur | 3hrs - 1,8 Eur
days: 1 - 4Eur | 2 - 5,70 Eur | 3 - 7,20 | weekly ticket - 12 Eur
Personally I would recommend you to buy a pass depending on how long you are staying in the city. Since I didn't stay for 2 todays, I didn't got a pass.
Furthermore, the city is small and you can go everywhere just walking. I just drove the bus to go from and to the station ;)
