well, u can also go by train changing in Empoli, depending on the time..
where do u come from, when u arrive in Florence? Rome? Bologna? Pisa?
www.sitabus.it will give you an idea of times and routes
Concerning buses, you won't have a problem. The SITA bus station is 100m from the Florence SMN railway station.
As per reaching Certosa di Pontignano, your best bet is to take a taxi as public transportation towards the area is very sparse. Budget around 12-15 euros for the taxi fare.
I planning to visit the Tuscany area by car in early May of next year. I have already been to Florence, Siena and Pisa, but I am planning to visited other towns in Tuscany. Since I will be renting a car, I am planning to visit the countryside for some photography opportunities. From my research so far I come up with that Chianti Hills and Crete areas of Tuscany are the best areas to take landscape photos. Does anyone want to recommend other areas of Tuscany that I should also be researching for landscape photos.
We've been in Tuscany in September last and - although I'm not a photographer - the best area for landscape photo's IMO is the Crete Senese because of the variety in colours of the soil, from almost white over yellowish and reddish to darkbrown. You will notice that the most beautiful postcards are made in the San Quirico d'Orcia area, this is between Siena and Pienza/Montalcino.
Try hills around San Gimignano- just fabulous views
I was in Tuscany in May and went to Monteriggioni, Ama, Vagliagli, and Castellina in Chianti from Siena. The weather's really good that time of year and great for taking pictures. Some of the good landscape photos we took were from a hot air balloon.
Thank you all for the replies, they are a big help.
You can't go wrong ANYWHERE in Tuscany! There are some great views from Radda in Chianti and Lucca (not far from Pisa) is a wonderful city with great ancient walls that you can stroll along the top of. Check out my Tuscany and Italy pages if you want and you'll see my shots.
Garfagnana seems to be an very beautifull quiet corner of Tuscany.
I have my eye on this region to do some hiking there later this year.
