ABITA , the expo dedicated to the world of the home: furniture, architecture and design, including technologies and services. An event not to be missed for all enthusiasts, professionals and industry experts.


Discover Florence and its Renaissance beauties

MIDA also gives you the opportunity to discover Florence and its artistic beauties, starting right from the Fortezza da Basso, a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture.
Built during the first half of 16th century for the Medici family to control the city, today it is the main venue of the Florence congress and exhibition center.


Firenze offers you many opportunities

Given the size of the ZTL (restricted traffic zone in the city centre), active from 7:30 to 20:00 (Mondays to Fridays), and from 7:30 to 16:00 (on Saturdays), it is recommended to consider the car parks located in close proximity to Firenze Fiera: Fortezza Fiera Car Park (piazzale Caduti nei Lager) and Stazione Santa Maria Novella Car Park, located under the central railway station and open 24/7.
Information: Firenze Parcheggi (Tel. +39 055 272011 – firenzeparcheggi.it)

The Villa Costanza Car Park is a car-tramway parking lot. You can access it directly from the A1 motorway thanks to a dedicated exit between Scandicci and Impruneta, coming both from north and south. You can park your car and access the terminus of the T1 tramway line connecting Scandicci to the Florence city centre.
