castello di Porciano

by vincentbuhagiarooooo

Hi,
Is there any kind of transport to castello di Porciano that we can use to get there.
I was told that this is a very nice area and so we would like to visit on our holiday to Florence.
Thank you in advance for your replies
A nice day to all

Re: castello di Porciano

by Manara

This location has a nice website, with a page that contains instructions on how to get there: http://www.castellodiporciano.com/cms/

It is by the village of Stia, which can be reached by train from Arezzo (a local line, not the FS trains) or by bus from Florence. The bus company is SITA.

Here's the Florence>Stia bus timetable:

Here's the timetable link for the Arezzo>Stia railway line:

Florence>Arezzo by train takes about an hour, costs from 5.80 euro:

You will probably need to get a taxi from Stia station to Castello di Porciano: it looks to be at least 4km to Castello di Porciano, if not more. I can't find a bus timetable for this segment.

PHOTO : THE STATUE OF DAVID AT PIAZZA MICHELANGELO...


Among the sculptures by Michelangelo are DAVID and the four PRISONERS. The latter were begun for the ill fated tomb of JULIUS II in Rome, but were never completed. Michelangelo's DAVID originally stood in front of the Palazzo Vecchio at the beginning of the 16th century....not sure why they move it to a new location. It was moved to the Galleria and was replaced by the copy which now stands in its original location.

Fiesole

by anne_h

Many guidebooks recommend visiting Fiesole, a town about 8 miles above Florence, so there are nice views. Otherwise there's not much to do here. On the day we went, I neglected to realize that the bus drivers were having a "sciopero," a strike, so we had to take a taxi back. Ah well...that's what happens in Italy, you just gotta go with the flow.

Silk Scarves, Capes, Leather Gloves

by ForestqueenNYC about San Lorenzo Market

I love the central market, but I never buy leather goods there. The quality if not the best. But you can pick up some beautiful silk scarves that are inspired by Hermes, Chanel, Ferragamo, and other designers that are really beautiful. Make sure the hems are rolled.

My favorite stores in the San Lorenzo Market are Belinda's for scarves and BIVA for capes and pashimas. Belinda's is a stall and BIVA is an actual store behind a stall. I do not have the exact address but it is on the same side as the central market . Belinda's is on the side of the church. You can also buy beautiful capes and pashimas in fabulous colors. I picked up several the last time I was there. I wanted to bring more home, but I was already over the weight limit on Easy Jet.

The exception to my no buy leather rule are the gloves. They come in all kinds of bright colors. I would buy those because they are not very expensive and unless they are black or dark brown they are going to be dirty in two wearings and ready for the trash anyway. So I call them disposable gloves.

The florentine paper products are also nice. I paid less than 20 euros for the silk scarves.

Walking! It is the best way...

by Patricialuv

Walking! It is the best way because everything in Florence is always in walking distance.
If you prefer not to walk, then the next best thing would be to go on public buses (real cheap prices) or taxi's (which are more expensive, but still affordable, but sometimes the taxis take too long. I'd recommend taxi's on sundays or late at night when there are less buses on duty.

Warning: if you don't have a ticket to a bus or train they, you will be taking a chance of getting fined big time. So it's better off buying the tickets before you ride on the train or bus.
Best choice: Walking.
Why? Because you get to see things you wouldn't see in buses or taxis, and it is more convenient. Especially during the summertime or where the weather is very nice.
