Re: Vasari corridor tour

I haven't visited it, but I know it should cost around 30 euro per person.

I have decided to book the tour with Selectitaly. It is a splurge for the trip $150 American dollars each - ouch!! Hope I have done the right thing but hey in the big picture. Will let everyone know when I get back - early June.

Travel Tips for Florence

Pisa

by Marpessa

While in Firenze my friends and I decided to take a trip over to Pisa for the afternoon. It is a simple trip to do, just go by train and you can easily see all the main sites in Pisa in an afternoon and then come back to Firenze.

I am currently working on my Pisa page and will have it completed soon!

every day life in the small hilltown of Fiesole

by rkearns

I would go to Fiesole for a day. It's only ten minutes outside of Florence and it's a quiet, beautiful little hill town with a view of Florence on a good day. You get to see a lot of every-day living.

Bookstore, Café and Internet until Midnight

by mariocibelli about Libreria Edison

Florence’s answer to Foyle’s/ Borders. A three-level bookstore with internet (cheap internet 2.50 Euros per hour!) and a café on the first (2nd US) floor. Large selection of English language books as well as extensive selection of travel guides in English and Italian for Italy and rest of world. It is a great place to have a coffee (at normal prices 80 Eurocents) and sit down, puruse art books and people watch. The store is open seven days awake until midnight. If you have a laptop, sit by the coffee bar, there is a plug on the side (very few people realize this)

Fly to Florence (FLR)

by kenadams

Florence has one airport: its code is FLR and it has one small runway allowing only relatively small aircraft (ATR, DASH or Fokker 50 turboprops; Avro RJ or Airbus 319 jets) to serve the port.
Destinations include Paris CDG (Air France), Munich and Frankfurt (Lufthansa), Olbia, London Gatwick, Catania, Amsterdam, Palermo (Meridiana, a Klm partner), Rome FCO and Milan MXP (Alitalia), Brussels (SN Brussels Airlines), Vienna (Tyrolean), Zurich and Geneva (Swiss).
Although most lowcost airlines fly to Pisa, Fly Baboo
connects Florence and Geneva with four weekly flights.

Fantastic lunch

by Henrik_rrb about ZaZa

The first times I went here I had no idea that Trattoria ZaZa actually is quite famous. The restaurant opened back in 1977, by then only as a wine shop. If you were lucky you could get a slice of salami to your wine, but no food apart from that.

Later on the place transformed into a restaurant, and nowadays Trattoria ZaZa is one of the most famous in Florence.
I've been here only for lunch, but oh what lunch...

Too many times I've come here with some quite bad hungover, but after a meal of pasta and delicious red wine I'm afraid that I've been been ready for another shot of limoncello or grappa... :)

Best offer is to sit outside, where you can enjoy both the sunshine and warmness, and also have a look at people who walks by.

As the trattoria is located at Piazza Mercato Centrale it's just around the corner from the huge San Lorenzo market. So you could combine a fantastic lunch with a nice time of shopping.

Make sure you spend more time on the food than on the shopping though. Sure it's nice with t-shirt souvenirs, but no reason to run away without dessert only for that... ;)

Prices are good, although for sure not the cheapest ones in Florence. But seen that ZaZa is located on one of the busiest tourist places in the whole Florence (which says quite a lot...) the prices are actually fantastic low! :) The dessert, which I've unfortunately forgotten the name of. Some kind of vanilla cream, with pieces of strawberries dipped into it. It just melt in the mouth, and then you melt. I can live on that, and only that, for the rest of my life!

Make sure you have some of the local wine too, always excellent choosen by the waiters.

Service can be a bit slow, no matter if the place is packed or not, but it's definately worth a visit anyway.

Almost forgot, the bread you get before your meal is purely fantastic. Local Florence bread, traditionally made without salt (after an old fight with neighbours Siena who then refused to send any salt to Florence, which forced them to make their bread without salt). For some reason it's great against hungover.
