Description

Florence’s modern tramway opened in 2005. Line T1 starts in the centre at Santa Maria Novella station and serves residential areas towards Scandicci via a new bridge over the Arno. Lines T2 (for the Airport), T3 and an extension to T1 are under construction, and line T4 is being planned at the time of writing. Line T1 has a pleasant route though Cascine Park, but the system is intended to serve the needs of Florentine residents rather than the tourists.

The trams are 5-section bi directional Ansaldo Breda Sirio.

A planned line near the historic Duomo has met with fierce opposition and an expensive tram subway has been suggested as a solution
