Visit Florence with your dog: where you can go

Although four-legged friends are not allowed in the museums and churches of Florence, there are places of enchanting beauty in the city where you can go with your dogs: Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, Piazza del Duomo or Piazzale Michelangelo. You can easily take a stroll through the streets of the historic centre and enter in many public places and shops.
There are several public parks that can be accessed with the dog and which have specific areas dedicated to dogs and they are specially marked. Here you will find many indications by selecting the section Garden and Dogs Area >>

Another interesting curiosity is the aperidog. Many public places with outdoor spaces offer a special aperitif: while the owners make an aperitif, dogs can entertain themselves in a mobility dog path (even for non-alleged dogs) with an educator that makes them entertain. Snacks are provided both for dogs and humans.

You can travel with your pet on all public transports. Remember, however, that dogs must always be kept on a leash and wear a muzzle. Remember also to always carry a pallet and / or bag for the needs to avoid penalties.
