Florence Wedding - Town Hall

by doogienj

Ciao,

We're looking to get married in Florence Town Hall in April 2009:) Does anyone know how to actually make an appointment for the Town Hall for the ceremony? We have the paperwork under control, and don't really want to hire an expensive wedding planner just to make the appointment. We're hoping it can be done from here somehow. Any advise is appreciated.

Best,

Douglas

Doug, have you seen this page, on the offical Florence municipality site?

Ciao

Travel Tips for Florence

When on foot, watch your back!

by surferob

Not on account of pickpockets (them too) but more because the streets of Florence are bustling with some insane traffic. Most of it is young people speeding around on scooters. There are so many thousands of these things in Italy, it's amazing. In fact I would love to know what that number is. (Probably similar to the number of cars here in California.) Anyway, many of them really do drive very aggresively and dangerously so be mindful of it when out walking. No place is safe, they race down the smallest streets and alleyways, even 'pedestrian' zones. I even saw one guy - he was on a small motorcycle actually - blow past a group of us and before we could shout "f**king psycho!" he had run into the back of a stopping car. Served him right. He made a lame attempt to act angry at the driver of the car, when it was obviously his stupid fault, then simply picked up his bike and rode off. Crazy Italians...

Museum Tickets

by keeweechic

I believe now it is possible to book online for major museums in Florence before you arrive which will eliminate waiting long queues when you get there. The charge is about 11,000 litre which is about US$5.00.

Leather in Florence

by celticraine about FERI s.a.s

FERI s.a.s is a small leather goods shop selling leather wallets and an incredible assortment of leather handbags. The saleswoman gave me an big discount on a lambskin handbag I brought there. I only spent a little over a hundred dollars on it. She was incredibly friendly, persuasive, and showed me with a cigarette lighter how real leather doesn't burn again and again! She also gave me tips on how to care, condition, and moisturize my leather handbag for life. I recommend all women interested in genuine leather handbags to check it out. While the prices in store shops are higher than the ones on the street. Keep in mind that you are paying a higher price for much better quality and being assured it's genuine cowskin or lambskin. The ones sold on the street markets are not only of much lower quality leather it's either fake or made of pigskin. 70 euros and up

Trains

by Marpessa

While in Italy I travelled from city to city on the trains - Trenitalia. I used both the Inter City trains and the Eurostar. The Eurostar trains get between destinations faster (as they have fewer stops) and in general are kept in better condition than the Inter City ones. The trains I went on had either restaurant cars or snack bars on board.

To get to Florence (station Firenze S.M Novella) I came on a Eurostar train from Rome - very comfortable and only took an hour and a half.

I had a railpass when I was in Italy, which was very handy. Although on some trips when I wanted to book a seat I had to pay a few euro extra - but it was either that or run the risk of standing up for a few hours. If you plan on doing a bit of train traveling while in Italy, I recommend getting a rail pass as this can save you money.

The website below is very helpful, you can look up timetables of the trains, prices and even book your tickets online.

This is a must visit restaurant

by SHARKFIN about Associazione La Pentola Delloro

This is a well known rest among florentines. It serves food the way they cook in medevial times. The owner is very passionate abt food and his research lead him to recipe thats was from those times. The dessert i had that night was a recipe from the medici family cook,my wife had pasta done the way they did for the jesuits of medievial times. Check out the tuscany web site under Alessi , you will know more and i agree to everything that is on the website having personally experience the food and the warmth of mr alessi> By the way there is no big sign announcing the existance of this restaurant , just the address and some articles and awards pasted on the door . My wife and i shared the appertizer , both had a first dish , main course and shared one dessert ,1/2 bottle of a very good house wine and the bill came to Eur 63. Mr Alessi even signed and gave a copy of a cook book he published to my wife . The black pepper steak recommended by the owner .. supposedly recipe from great architect .. i think was the person who built the famous dome in florence . Also i had recooked bread with beans .. very delicious .. cook the way they did in the old days . i did not know it was bread , thought it was some kind of mash potatoes or something . It turn out to be bread reheat again and again .. like old days when they cook for the masses, reheat to serve again and again ... stress again delicious .. needs to go back again before this old man retires ...
