Train ticket prices

by Rogermark

Hi Everyone
I've had a look at cost of train fare from Florence to Venice and the Trenitalia website gives options such as meno15 and meno30 discounts.
When you click on "more info" it puts up a window in Italian. Can anyone point me to an English version or maybe explain. Also if I select a discount rate, can I buy from Australia by credit card(Visa)
Or do I just let my travel agent handle these issues..??
Many thanks for any info

The MAN IN SEAT 61 has a useful piece about Italian fares etc:

it is directed towards Brits travelling by train from UK but it is equally useful for yourself !

Re: Train ticket prices

by leics

No need to even tnink about booking before you arrive. It is not necessary. there are lots of trains per day to Florence, and none are reservataion-only (you can still buy tickets even for reservation-only trains up to a few minutes before departure if there is availability, and there usually is). You can simply buy the tickets at Venice SL station once you are there. Ticket machines are easy to use and have English language options.

Use

http://www.trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html

One-way second-class fare is from 22.50 euro.

Clicking on the relevant discount offer on:

http://www.trenitalia.com/cms/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=ad1ce14114bc9110VgnVCM10000080a3e90aRCRD

will bring up the relevant information in English. If the link above does not work (I think it includes my personal site reference) try going to

http://www.ferroviedellostato.it/homepage_en.html

clicking on 'English' then 'Tenitalia'. You'll see the discount offers listed, with English info.

Travel Tips for Florence

The code behind Florence addresses broken:

by jglsongs

If you've noticed, addresses in Florence either end with "/r" or "/n", and one street could have two addresses with the same number, e.g. 13/n, via X and 13/r, via X.

What does it mean?
"R" is for rosso (red) and "N" for nero (black). Business and commercial addresses are considered red, or rosso; residential addresses are black, or nero. So walking on a given block, you'll see 1/r (a business), 3/r (a restaurant), 5/r (a hotel), 7/r (a cafý), 1/n (an apartment), 3/n (an apartment), 9/r (a store), and so on.

Always make sure you let a taxi driver or guide know if it's /n or /r.

Florence - My Favourite Italian City

by keeweechic

Florence is probably my favourite of all the Italian cities I have seen, Venice comes a very close second. I just loved the place for some reason. You must check out the leather in Florence its great and a very good price. Try and go to one of the leather factory outlets which have a showroom. I bought a lovely leather coat (almost full length on me) and leather gloves at a very good price. The sleeves were too long so they took them up and had the coat delivered to the hotel later that evening. They even gold stamped my initials on the inside of the coat free of charge.

There are several of them in Florence, but I went to Peruzzi, Borgo dei Greci, 8r – Via Anguillara 5/7/9/11/13/15. Beware of leather though in the markets, a lot is not good quality and they were spraying them with something that made them smell like leather. We went up to some restaurant in the hills for dinner. It had a verandah looking down into the valley and it was just lovely up there. The river with all the bridges was just so pretty. Unfortunately I don't remember the name of it. Of course I have the jewellery and leather goods to always remind me of Florence.

Mugello Region

by GeoDenia

North-east of Florence, the Mugello features some of the most original villages in Tuscany. The Sieve River which winds through the grape-filled valley is popular with canoeists. The Mugello is very popular with walkers, trekkers, climbers and horse riders. Sights to look out for include the strategically positioned Montesenario Convent and the wine town of Rufina, with its viticulture museum.

Springs evenings in Florence

by Azhut about Caffè Italiano

Elengant and confortable restaurant/pub. Open every day all day. Good soft music, a little and romantic place for eating or drinking something with special friends. Especially recommend for lovers ;-) Coat and tie are not required but is better to dress in elegant/causal style.

exquisite restaurant in Florence

by moonar about Baccarossa

I have recently eaten at Baccarossa (between S. Croce and S. Ambrogio) and found it a wonderful surprise in Florence. The food is exquisite, based on a unique combination of wild-caught Mediterranean fish and vegetarian dishes. All recipees are original, rich and balanced, rather elaborated. They serve a selection of Italian wines, and the desserts are fantastic. The ambience is warm, and conceived to recreate the atmosphere of a French bistrot. The sense of hospitality is generous, and this is another pleasant peculiarity in Florence. You can find a map to get there at: www.baccarossa.it -
