3 Days in Florence.....need tips on sights and going-out places

by roco_mx

Hi everybody, I'll be spending 3 nights in Florence (June 14-17), and wanted to ask a couple of things:

- How crowded is the city at that time of the year? I'm wondering whether to reserve tickets for the main sights.
- Could you advise on some hostels or B&Bs to stay? I'm looking into a 15-20 euros range.
- Are there any Salsa or latin clubs you would recommend?

Thanks a lot.

It will be very crowded. You should reserve tickets at least for the Ufiss Museuum. Sorry, can't help with the other questions. Check the VT travel guides.

Do reserve tickets for the Accademia if you want to see David and for the Uffizi, the lines are very long and slow moving. With a reserved ticket you save a lot of time.
I cannot help with a hostel, but 15 - 20 Euro a night for Florence in June seems very low. Good luck!

Hi - check www.hostelworld.com for hostels. As the others have said, it will be very crowded. Reserve what you can ahead, but most sights do not take reservations. Enjoy!

I agree! Florence is one of those cities that is always busy. I would reserve tickets for the big museums such as Ufizzi Gallery. Churches will be OK but expect a queue at the Duomo.

Travel Tips for Florence

Day Trips From Florence

by Jmill42

In the heart of Tuscany, you would imagine that there would be ample opportunities for day trips form Florence. And, you would be right.

Below I have listed cities that are easily toured in a day (though all deserve much longer stays) from Florence, their distance, and my reason I recommend them.

Siena - (One and a half hour by train or bus)
One of the more beautiful Medieval cities.

Pisa and Lucca (about an hour to Pisa, cities about 15 minutes apart; bus or train) Pisa and its tower should be obvious, but there isn't much else to see, so make the short ride to Lucca, which is another beautiful Medieval city.

San Gimignano (bus only; one and half hour away) All the splendors of Tuscany await you in this beautiful city.

Montalcino and Montepulciano (2-3 hours away by train, depending on departure time. Buses shorter) Wine, wine, wine.

The Castle

by jorgec25

The castle of Florence is located near the Piazzale Michelangelo, a much visited place. But, sadly, I didn’t saw many people climbing the extra meters and go up to the castle.

The views are very nice, and you get a glimpse of old Florence, passing by some very quiet streets and some very beautiful private houses.

San Lorenzo Market

by HORSCHECK

Florence has many interesting inside and outside markets. One of the most famous is the San Lorenzo Market in the centre of Florence. Food is offered inside the central market building; all other goods like clothing, shoes and leather are offered on the street market.

If your feet hurt, then use a bus!

by Sarita76

I would say you don't need any transports in Florence as the best way to enjoy the city is walking. The city center is quite small compared to other cities (e.g. Rome). But if you're tired or if your accomodation is far from the city center, then you can take a bus.

Local Grocery Stores

by Lhenne1 about Esselunga and Coop (among others)

Food in Florence is very pricey. So grab snacks, lunches, etc at local grocery stores. You can find them right outside the city center or locate a few small grocers within the center (there are 2 within a block of either side of Cavour).

If you're walking around town and want a bottle of water or a soda, these places are also usually about 50% cheaper than a "snack bar".
