Driving inside the walls is mostly reserved to residents, so park your car there are car parks outside the walls and a couple inside, accessible by non-residents and rent a bike. Several bicycle rental locations can be found near the North entrance to the city, Porta Santa Maria, near Porta San Pietro and walking from Porta Elisa towards the center. It is not a large city within the walls, so you may find it more enjoyable to simply walk around.

The city has many car parks located outside the wall, the largest two are on the North and South side. The A11 E76 Runs from the coastal A12E80 Autostrada across towards Firenze.
