    • AREA to stay in Elba

      Isola d' Elba Apr 9, 2015 at 4:25 AM

      Travelling to Elba with my Mum and Dad at the end of May, beginning of June.

      Due to the Bus time tables from Florence, we would be on Elba for 4nights.

      Ideally like to pick 1 hotel for the 4nights, and do day trips from that base.

      Tried to research the best area to stay in Elba, with no luck. Suggestions seem to be;

      Marina di Campo/ Porto Azzuro/ Cavoli.

      Obviously I need to narrow it down to 1.
      They are both 50yrs old, we would like to see all of the 'touristy' things that Elba has to offer, and also a couple of walks, and a beach.

      So in short, best AREA to stay in Elba.

      Thanks

      Hello, I was wondering if Giuseppe Zanotti's store at The Factory Outlet is any good and how much are the discounts usually. Is it worth going?
      Thanks!

    • Marble Shop in Carrara

      Carrara Apr 11, 2015 at 6:04 PM

      We visited a marble shop in Carrara many years ago when we were stationed in Naples, Italy (1990). The shop had a small cafe attached to it - and I remember the owners had a pet monkey that was on a leash which they chained to one of the chairs. Does anyone know what shop this is? If it still exists? Thanks.

      Different bus from Amerigo Vespucci (airport) to Santa Maria Novella (train station)

      Florence Mar 30, 2015 at 7:12 PM

      I understand there is a bus named Volainbus that shuttles from the airport to the Florence train station every 1/2 hour for 6 euros one way. 1st question, how long is the 10 euro round trip ticket good after you validate it? 2nd question, is there a city bus that takes the same route for less? We went to Florence by train from Rome 2 years ago, so we are not familiar with the airport.

    • Florence and Pisa

      Florence Apr 17, 2015 at 2:01 AM

      Hi all, first of all I love this site, so helpful, thank you.

      I am on a cruise ship (first time) and docking nearish to Florence & Pisa. I am not into organised timed excursions, as I like to amble around and take my time. Is there a way to visit both these places independently of the cruise ship? Bus train etc? Also any recommendations? Thank you in advance x

      Our 2.5 Day Itinerary in Florence (First timers - Need advice!)

      Florence Apr 14, 2015 at 7:14 PM

      Greetings dear travellers! Me and the wife are going to Florence (for the first time!) this summer. With so many things to see, eat, and do, I can't help but make a detailed itinerary. We're newlyweds and kind of in a budget trip, so you might notice we're just hitting the panini stands and pasta/pizza to-go shops a lot.

      Now I need some advice from seasoned travellers and Italian enthusiasts to know if our plan is possible, especially the museum/gallery trips and walking distances. Also, if you have some "YOU MUST DEFINITELY DO/SEE THIS..." advice, that would be awesome! By the way, we will be coming in by train from Venice and we're off to Cinque Terre after.

      Without further ado, here's our 2.5 day Florence itinerary:

      Florence (Day 1)

      • Arrive at train station
      • Check in at apartment
      • Lunch at Amorino Panino e Vino
      • Il Duomo di Firenze (Cupola, Campanile, Baptistery)
      • Dinner at I Due Fratellini
      • Buy wine from Enoteca Alessi
      • Lounge around Piazza della Signoria

      Florence (Day 2)

                - 4-course Tuscan lunch with Chianti wine

                - Receive a diploma, book and apron

      • Shop at Mercato San Lorenzo
      • Dinner at Sandwichic

      Any info on the new apartments near the Funicular?

      by PeterCac Online Now Dec 14, 2008 at 12:56 PM

      We are going back to Certaldo in 2009 and noticed when we were there in 2006 that someone was extensively renovating the building near the funicular.
      However, I can not find any rental information on those apartments.
      Does anyone know anything about those apartments?
      If you enter a forum answer that is great, or you could email me at PeterCac@vtmail.com .

      Certaldo- what is it like?

      by PeterCac Online Now Feb 14, 2004 at 8:16 PM

      Q: We will be staying in Alto Certaldo at the end of April. Anybody been there to coment on what it is like and whether the cable car to Certaldo at the bottom of the hill is a pain or convenient. Are there enough stores and restaurants, etc in old Certaldo at the top of the hill or do you find yourself going down the hill all the time. Is parking convenient for day trips to Sam G. Siena, Florence , other small towns etc.? Or perhaps we should take a bus or train to the nearby cities/towns? Any references in Certaldo you can give us, like a tourist guide, etc that were real good? We will be two couples staying in a nice apartment in Alto Certaldo. We have not found much on the web about what Certaldo has. My direct email is EagleHill@directway.com if you want to use that. Thanks, Peter
