Which location is nearest to train station?

by pecorino

Hi! I'm planning to rent a car in Siena and returning the car in Florence, after which I hope to be able to tour Florence briefly on foot then take the train to Rome within the day.

I plan to use Europcar rental, which has 4 branches in Florence: the airport, Novoli H24, Via Borgognissanti, and Via del Gelsomino. Which branch is most convenient for getting into town (do I need to take a bus)? Also, in case I have to skip touring Florence, which branch is nearest to the Florence train station (again, do I need a bus)?

Thanks in advance!

I suggest to go from Siena to Floence by bus; it's cheaper and you don't have to pay extra money for returning the car in a different destination you pick it up from.

Redang's suggestion of returning the car in Siena and not driving to Florence is a good one if you have no plans of sightseeing in the Tuscan countryside and beautiful Chianti region on the way between the two ( recommended ).

The Borgo Ognissanti is one block in from the Arno river toward the train statin and only a few blocks away, easily accessed from the south or west where you will be coming from although you will need a map. The walk to SMN station is thru the older part of Florence or it is only a very short taxi trip.

Thanks for the answers! Actually, I'll be going to Florence from Cortona (coming from Siena the day before). Now I'm thinking, what if I return the rental car in Cortona then take the bus to Florence instead? Would this be a good plan? This way, I might be saving my husband some road stress, as well as maybe getting ourselves into Florence town much easier? (Not sure if it's easy to get around to the Cortona bus station though.)

The sooner you return the car, the more money you save; furthermore, the bus leaves you in the city centre of Florence (next door to the railway staion, Santa Maria Novella).

Travel Tips for Florence

Lorenzo de Medici

by Kodi01

Lorenzo was the most influential man in Florence. He was called "Lorenzo the Magnificent" and ruled the city. He was born January 1, 1449 in Florence.

His biggest contribution to the cities history was his love for the arts. He supported Leonardo da Vinci and Michealangelo.

watch a game of soccer

by MStars

go to campo di marte, east of the city center and watch a game of calcio!

i think they're usually on sundays, go to one of the tabacchis near the stadiuim and purchase tickets there. the die hard fans buy the cheapest tickets, but if you want to observe the crazy fans from afar, get the higher priced tickets. women get a 5 euro discount.

i think watching the fans is actually more fun than the game itself, they're PAZZI (crazy)

Designer Outlets

by PolyAna about Gucci, Prada, YSL, Tod's, Armani, etc...

The Oultet Tour is the best investment I made, while shoping around Florence. The first stop is Space Prada, which houses Miu Miu, Prada, Jill Sander. And, let me tell you how excited I was to find Prada shoes for 30 euro and purses for 35-400 euro. I was in Prada HEAVEN!!! The second stop was the Mall, which houses Gucci, YSL, Armani, Tod's, etc. Gucci is, by far, the best deal EVER. Purses range between 100-500 euro. That's a steal! And, shoes range between 100-300 euro. I was shocked to see how discounted all the items, in all the stores I checked out, were. If you are into designer labels, save your money and get one large piece at Gucci or Prada. My friend got a croc leather Prada purse for 225 euro. A interlocking GG extra large Gucci purse cost about 150-225 euro. I know, it's almost too much to handle...I got Prada strappy sandals for 30 euro & a prada evening purse for 35 euro... Depends on how many things you buy... Be ready to get designer fever, when you get there...

Taxi

by Henrik_rrb

If you still don't want to walk around in Florence by foot I can recommened taking a taxi. The traffic is awful in Florence, which means you might end up paying quite some money if you go during the wrong time of the day. But it's still easy to find a taxi, and if you call for one they will come very quickly.

Just remember that the taxameter starts when you make the call, so if the taxi company send a taxi to you from the other side of the city, it will be very expensive...

Best place to grab a taxi is at the central station, Santa Maria Novella. There are taxis passing by all the time at the special taxi parking, so you just need to stay in line and wait for your turn. If you're unlucky the line is very long, and then you'll have to wait. So if you're going somewhere important it could be a wise choice to go there early.

First Evening in Florence

by nelson193 about Trattoria Trebbino

After a busy first day in Italy, from Rome to Florence, our first dinner was at the Trattoria Trebbino, conveniently located just around the corner behind our hotel. Without reservations on a pleasant evening, we were fortunate to get an outside table which obviously added to our initial experience. For us, it was a perfect evening of good, basic food, nothing fancy, enjoyed outdoors, with both local folks and fellow travelers.
