Bus From FLorence to Futa Pass Cemetary?

by SmilesFromCanada

After 65 years i have finally out that my grandfather is buried in the German Military Cemetery at Futa Pass. My mother has always wondered where her father was when he died. Now that we know i really want to take her there to say her hello and her goodbye to him.

Am hoping that someone can give me some guidance as the best way to get to Futa Pass from Florence, where we'll be staying..we'll have to go by bus as neither of us wants to rent a car.


Thank you,

Monica

Travel Tips for Florence

Firenze in November

by Igraine

It was awfully cold, windy and rainy. All this didn't stop me from enjoying the sights. Climbing the Duomo, standing on top and looking around the entire city and it surroundings was a great thing to do.
Climbing up is hard work but amazing, first you get till the rim of the big dome, after going up some very very windy stairs. Next you go to the other side of the dome, sadly enough not being able to make pictures due to the plastic screen. Then you go between the dome inner and outer wall up to the top. So you walk a bit lopsided. But the view is so rewarding!

hug the swine

by tompt

At the south side of the Mercado Nuovo is this Swine. I tis a 17th century copy of the original roman marble one, that can be seen in the Uffuzi. Hug it and you will be back in Florence, at least that is what they say.
Coins collect in the bassin under the swine are collected and spend on charity.

Look up!

by leics

In all cities it pays to look up. It's amazing what you can see..............even on the Ponte Vecchio, looking above the heads of the crowd shows just how old and rebuilt and rebuilt the bridge is (see other photo).

I was amazed to see real trees growing from a roof. Still am, actually....amazed the roof can bear the weight of the necessary soil. It's on Via Montebello.

Piazza S. Spirito: as...

by tabatha

Piazza S. Spirito: as everywhere in Italy the life is also one the street. In the evening this place is crowded with young but also old people watching spectacles or just talikng and relaxing. One of the best places for feel the italian way of life !

The Only Gelateria You Need to Go To!

by Hopkid about Vivoli

Florence is bursting with places to buy gelato, the Italian version of ice cream. The best is Vivoli, not far from the Piazza Santa Croce. It also opens early in the morning in case you have an urge for gelato for breakfast (as we did the day we flew home). Lots of great flavors to choose from. If you can't decide ask them to mix two flavors into a single cup.
