      SO MUCH TO SEE - is this too much?

      Livorno Sep 17, 2015 at 3:31 PM

      Ciao! We are in the port of Livorno for ONE DAY - so this is challenging. Do you think the following proposed itinerary is too much for the time we are off the ship? (9 hours)

      Drive from Livorno to Firenze (via private car) stop at Piazza Michelangelo for a quick snack & cup of coffee, then drive to see Piazza del Duoma (aka Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral). Not planning on going inside, just sitting and staring at it in awe for a little while. Then a jaunt over to the Ponte Vecchio to WINDOW shop. Overall, I was thinking that would be about three hours in the city.

      (Note: We were in Florence for a week in 1997, so I have done some extensive sightseeing there. I know the museums all have loooooong lines, so I was not planning on going to any of them. I would need another week long trip to do that any justice.)

      THEN... from Firenze, we are hoping to drive through Tuscany (maybe stop at one vineyard, maybe not) and spend a few hours in San Gimingano. (we love it there).

      We figured out drive time to be approx 4 hours, which if we have 9 hours, that gives us 5 hours to sight-see.

      What do you think? Thanks for your input! Mille Gratzie!

    • What is open on sundays?

      by lozzmaggi Online Now Nov 2, 2013 at 8:05 PM

      I have a free day in my organised tour that I was hoping to spend in Volterra, however that day is a sunday. I was wondering if anything would be open on a sunday that would be worth an hour or so on public transport or 1/2 an hour taxi ride to see or do? Alabaster shops? Etruscan museum? Restaurants?

      Thank you for your answers.

    • backpacktrip to Volterra

      by Charlotte&TheGuys Online Now Apr 3, 2011 at 6:47 AM

      Hi everyone,

      we're 5 youngsters between 18 and 20 years old and we're planning to do a roadtrip across Italy in August. Some of us have a driverlicense but not long enough to rent a car, so we're moving by foot, train, busses,... We were planning to take the bus from Firenze to Volterra, stay there for one night and go to Lucca the next day by bus. Many sites about busses are in Italian, which is a language none of us speaks.. we managed to figure out how to go by bus from Firenze to Volterra, but we're still searching for a way to go from Volterra to Lucca. Can anyone help us with that?
      We were also wondering what the best hostel/hotel/camping(we have tents) would be for the 5 of us, we're all students, we can live without luxury and we look for the cheapest way to stay a night at Volterra.

      thanks for trying to help us

      Getting to Volterra from Florence

      by kathymof Online Now May 22, 2007 at 10:59 AM

      I am traveling to Florence in June and want to visit Volterra and San Gimignano. It seems that it is not that easy to get to Volterra by public transportation and that it takes a long time. The bus site is in Italian and I am having trouble with it. I don't want to sit on the bus all day with just a little time in Volterra.

      Would I be better of renting a car for a day and seeing both Volterra and San Gimignano that day? I would want to spend as much time as possible in each place, but especially in Volterra.

      Has anyone rented a Vespa in Volterra? We're staying at villa in between Volterra and San Gimignano for a week and would like to have some cheap transportation between the 2 towns. Any ideas on cost or where to rent? Do the dirt roads permit scooters? Thanks!
