    Moving to Florence

    I am moving to Florence, Italy for 5 months starting in August. I wanted to find out if there is a velodrome in or within biking distance of the city. Also, anything else I should visit or be aware of beyond the touristy crap since I have never visited there. Thanks.

    I am going there to study art, I will be spending a lot of time looking at all the art in Florence. I assumed there would be a velodrome near the city since it is a major city and cycling is huge part of that culture.
