Although Florence is a city that's easy to explore by foot, sometimes a taxi is a good option to get from A to B quickly.
Florence is up there with other European cities such as Amsterdam for the price of a taxi, one of the most expensive places to take this mode of transport.
It's unlikely that a journey would be cheaper than 7 or 8 euros, thanks to the high prices and the layout of the city. Nonetheless, Florence is small, you can easily get from one side to the other.
