We will be in Florence on New Year's Eve. It will be fantastic if you could suggest a good place for countdown...

Re: New Year's Eve in Florence

by gildapaolina

I spent New Year's Eve in Florence 2 years ago, it was fantastic because people had party on the streets and there were lots of concerts in differet areas of the city centre...So we moved around and had countdown at Ponte Vecchio, an astonishing experience! This year there are many events to choose between, from traditional dinner in restaurant to open air concerts. I send you an useful link, hope it could help you...
Have a great NIGHT in Florence!

Travel Tips for Florence

City cards

by Valentina82

As far as I know there are no year-round city-cards available to visit Florence, but last year I've been there at the end of September and bought a "TeatriCard". It was a special initiative supported and sponsored by Ataf http://www.ataf.net/: with only 5€ we could visit any theatres, museums and art exhibitions within the city.
If you visit the Ataf website at http://www.ataf.net/Template/ListContenutiData.aspx?LN=en-US&idC=39, I am pretty sure you will find something suitable for you. Unfortunately the website is not entirely translated in English, so if you need any help, just let me know.

Hope it helps!

Here's some more SHOPPING...

by Krystynn

Here's some more SHOPPING tips:

If you, like me, are always on the look out for leather gloves in every style, color and shade possible.... I'd like to humbly recommend this lovely store called Madova located in central Florence. Once you're a customer, they'll send you your gloves by mail and will even repair your old favorites for you! Isn't this great news? You can find this little gem at Via Guicciardini 1/R.

And over in Fiesole (a small town a short city bus ride away from the heart of Florence), check out Bonelli's leather goods. Last time we were there, the prices and quality were outstanding!! The address?

Via Portigiani 4.

La Specola Zoological Museum

by fgfi

La Specola is every children's dream! It' s a zoological museum, very near the Pitti Palace, containing a rich zoological collection of both existing and extinct animals. It also shows the anatomical wax models used of old to teach anatomy to aspiring doctors.

Deciphering addresses in Florence

by skywalkerbeth

Pay attention to the addresses you find in your guidebooks. In Italy, residential addresses will have black numbers, commercial addresses will have red ones (and, in guidebooks, will be written with an "r" after the number. You'll notice this in your guidebooks). This is good to know as you could find the exact same number for two different addresses on the same street - one black (residential) and one red (commercial). 15 (black) and 15 (red) are not the same address - but you can be sure the one with the red number will be a restaurant, shop, bar, etc.

Say bye to crowd

by garibaldi about Trattoria Diladdarno

It's easy to eat good food in Florence in a friendly and quite place without crowd and tourist trap prices...Leave the expensive center restaurants behind your back and walking across PonteVecchio drive yourself to Palazzo Pitti. From here, walking in Via Romana turn right in Via d. Campuccio or Via S.Maria and reach Via de' Serragli (perpendicular to your direction). Look for the small entrance of TRATTORIA DILADDARNO at number 108\R. Here you can choose to eat inside (picture) or in the open room (I advise you if you are visiting Florenze in a hot and sunny day, you could have a rest while you could taste food from Tuscany tradition). Hoping you can have the same quality I tasted in my visit let me tell....enjoy Florence ! Pasta fresca ai carciofi
