I'm thinking of trying the university for foreigners in sept. 2014 to study Italian. Anyone been to this school? What was your experience? I went to the same university in Perugia a few years ago and had a beautiful time. Just wondering about Siena..
I really want to buy my mom some jewelry made in either Florence or Siena as we have had some lovely trips there and never actually bought any jewelry. I'm hoping to get her something for Christmas but am running into some problems finding a jewelry store that offers online shopping. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks!
We are in Rome and going to Florence for a day trip tomorrow. Wondering if anyone can help me out.
We get there at 10am.
We have the uffizzi booked for 4pm and our ticket has sears reserved. What is this for? Can we enter earlier than our time?
We are planning on attending the duomo, the bridge (sorry spacing on the name at the moment), and the piazza della signoria (sp?). Do any of these places have a good place to eat lunch? And also for dinner will need to find a place. Just so we know when to do what things specifically.
Also, will there be a tourist information booth when we get off the train? Just have a couple travel questions.
Lastly our train is at 8pm. I'm now thinking this might have been too late. Is the SMN station safe around this time, and Florence in general? Should we take a taxi from dinner to the train station?
Thanks, and I appreciate any response!
I will be arriving in Florence on Christmas day at the Santa Maria Novella train station at 1030 in the morning. Do you know if the Tobbachi store in the station will be open to purchase bus tickets? If not, anywhere else close to the station on Christmas day? I am elderly enough not to wish walking about a mile to my hotel dragging my wife and baggage. Any help or advice would be appreciated.......Thank you in advance, Rich Luttrell
I'm thinking of spending a couple days in Castiglioncello from Florence and then going straight to Bologna after. Are there any reliable trains or buses to get me to and from these cities - or is it better to drive? I'd be going in late September so hopefully parking wouldn't be as bad?
