    Default Car park around Florence from Prato

    Hi, we will base ourselves in Prato and will drive our rented car into Florence for a day trip.
    Where is the most convenient place to park the car on a weekday (to ensure we have space to park and avoid rush traffic if possible?)

    Thank you!

    To be honest, if you're based in Prato, the best method to get into Florence for a day trip and avoid traffic and parking fees is to catch the train directly into Florence's Santa Maria Novella.

    All the roads to Florence are congested with traffic into Florence in the mornings, so you'll make better use of your time if you take the train -- it is about a 30 min ride and costs 2.60 euro one way. You can just get tickets the day of.
