Florence is a very easy city to get around in. It is relatively small, so there is no need for a subway system as most of the major attractions are within walking distance of the city center. If you do not feel like walking alot or want to make the trek to Piazzele Michelangelo for amazing views of the city, there is an efficient bus system and plenty of cabs for hire. Just a note about the cabs in Florence or anywhere else in Italy, you can only rent a cab by going to a designated cab stand, not by hailing one on the street.
