Does anybody have an idea how much a taxi would cost (if there's any) from Poggibonsi train station to San Gimignano? I'm asking because I have to wait 45+ minutes for the bus, so if the taxi fare is reasonable I'd rather get to SG sooner. Any advice is greatly appreciated. TIA :)
Would Castiglioncello be a good day from from Florence? If so, what sorts of activities would you recommend doing during the day?
I am a big fan of the water, would there be enough time to see the village and go snorkelling?
I am planning to take my dad to Italy for his first time (tho not mine) in October this yearl. He's a spry and healthy 85-year old man (who forgets how old he is so I need to be a bit careful not to tire him out.) I am doing a two week Home Exchange with an apartment in Florence so we will have a home base from which we can take a couple of trips. And we won't have a car. He very much wants to go to the Amalfi Coast so I'm wondering if it might be best to book a tour from Florence. There's a tour company called bus2Alps.com that has a 4-day tour that I'm exploring, but I wonder if anyone could recommend other tour operators I could investigate? OR if people think it might be just as easy to go to Amalfi and get a hotel for a couple of nights and make our way around on our own?
My wife and I will be in Rome (4 days) & decided to take a break to go to Florence for at least most of day 3. I am planning to book a vespa tour that rides through Tuscany for 4 hours w/ meal included. I just wanted to know if anyone has done something similiar and whether it was worthwhile considering the time away from Rome? Thanks for your help.
Coming in from Florence by bus, where is the car rental area? And, is it better to stay in town without the car first and rent it as we go outwards towards country areas? Was thinking Siena would be a good base and use the car when we wanted to explore other
towns and return each day to Siena. Got any better ideas? thanks
I have to travel from Zurich to Florence, and the only low-cost option seems to be Ethiad Airlines (previously, Darwin Airline). Has any one flown with this company? Is it reliable?
Can you suggest the best location that's right at the center, in the heart of the Florence, I'm a city girl, I like all the actions, entertainment, shopping and restaurants. I think up to $350 per night hotel or B&B works for me. I'm going with my husband from July 20-July23. Thank you, Rita
I have 2 full days in Florence and 1 full day for Pompeii. I would like to find out:
- the best route to get to Pisa. I will be staying near central train station. what are the station name for Pisa?
- if I have 1 full day, how is it best to maximise to see Pisa? Do I get tickets in advance and is there any specific day that it is closed etc? Any specific tips would be helpful.
How much time do I have to allocate to get back to Florence? This will be in mid October - any tips on when sunsets and attractions close would help. Thanks :)
Hi! I normally tour independently. but after spending many hours planning a 3.5 week trip to Europe with my kids last year, I'm temporarily tapped out on planning. That being said, I am traveling with two friends with Gate One on a guided tour, and we are staying in Montecatini for four nights as part of the itinerary. On a Saturday there is an optional trip my friends are going on to Florence, but I have been twice already and am trying to find something pleasant to do that day that I have never done. Touring PIsa, wine tasting in Chianti, etc. all sound wonderful, but I refuse to drive myself (especially drinking wine), and there are typically only two types tours I am finding
a.) a huge group tours that herd and hurry you around and give you only an hour or so at a stop or
b.) private groups tours that cost $400 or more.
I am not seeing anything in between.
Does anyone have any tours they have been on that have been pleasant and fun? I am OK with traveling from Montecatini to Florence or other cities to start the tour, but if there are tours from Montecatini directly, that would be great.
I initially planned for 3 days in Florence including day trip to Pisa. Now I am extending 1 day so I have 3 full days in Florence (by cutting down 1 day in Venice from 3.5 days to 2.5 days). Is this a good idea?
For 3 full days in Florence, how should I plan it out? I would like to see Duomo, architecure, well known art and do things the local way.
I will be staying near the central train station, is everything walkable? Any recommendation for food?
Any useful tips much appreciated :)
