AS FAR AS MOBILITY INTO THE CITY:
We highly recommend you NOT DRIVE INTO THE CITY!
The ZTL remains ACTIVE all night long on the night of December 31st so you CANNOT DRIVE into the historical center that night.
The tram that connects Scandicci to Florence works ALL NIGHT on the 31st, so that way you can head back to your car when you’re ready to leave back.
here’s a map of the line and the parking areas near each stop. The one at viale Nenni is the largest: http://www.gestramvia.com/linea-e-parcheggi
