travel from Florence to Nice, France

by NeilGilbert

What is the fastest way to travel from Florence to Nice, France.
Thanks,
Neil

Driving. Estimated travel time: Car: 4-5 hours; airplane: 4-5 hours; train 7-8 hours. Train is the cheapest, then car and last airplane. I am not sure whether there is any bus service but I don't think so.

Re: travel from Florence to Nice, France

Actually the plane could be much cheaper if you can land a good rate via one of the cheap inter european carriers. The issue would likely be though that either flights departing from Florence don't go to Nice but rather some other city nearby (maybe Marseilles for example ) or you'd have to fly out of Pisa or Bologna to get a flight into Nice directly. Not a bad deal either way and might save the hassle and expense of driving and time on train, but depends on rate and the route.

Use these sites to find out if there's a good viable option for you:

FYI, I've flown from Norway to Pisa for USD 33 and from Frankfurt to London for USD 20, so the prices could make it worthwhile even if you don't save time from driving. ALso be aware of their strict baggage regulations and make sure you don't incur extra charges. If you have a lot of baggage then the extra charges might erase any savings and then you are better off driving or with train.

Buona fortuna! LL

Re: travel from Florence to Nice, France

I have taken both the plane and the train from Florence to Nice. That was many years ago. The plane was definitely faster. The train cheaper. If you take the train up the coast it is really pretty during part of the trip, but at that time you had to change in Genova. Easy Jet and Ryan Air do not fly between Florence (nor Pisa) and Nice, unfortunately, because you can get really good deals on the fares, if that's a factor for you. It wouldn't be worth it to fly to Marseille. You would only have to take the train back to Nice (or you could take the bus) and it would take several hours.

Travel Tips for Florence

The Rape of the Sabines, by Giambolonga (1583)

by pili

It illustrates an episode from the early history of ancient Rome. The Romans, unable to obtain wives peacefully, staged a festival, invited the neighboring Sabines, and, at a signal from Romulus, each violently seized a Sabine woman.
The Sabine women were revered as the mothers of the first Romans.-

El Rapto de las Sabinas relata un episodio de la temprana historia de Roma. Los romanos, incapaces de obtener esposas por medio de la paz, organizaron un festival e invitaron a sus vecinos, los Sabines y siguiendo una indicación de Rómulo, tomaron por violencia una mujer sabina.-
Las mujeres sabinas son rememoradas como las madres de los primeros romanos

Da Delfina's

by Probono_new

Da Delfina's restaurant in Artiminio is definitely worth a side-trip. Whether outside on the terrace overlooking the vineyard or inside, the food is excellent. The service is impeccable and amiable. Of course, start out with one of the appetizers. Secondi, try the ribollita (bread and bean stew) or the rabbit signature dish. If you order the rabbit, you get to take home the plate! Order a vin santo with dessert. Many dishes are made in the wood oven in the ktichen. This is the restaurant that inspired Delfina's in San Francisco and Poggio's in Sausalito. Try the orignal!

Street Art

by Lhenne1

Carts and stands fill the city, especially in the large piazzas. The artwork is original and sold by the artists themselves. You can look through the work displayed or request a particular scene to be made especially for you. Scenes come from the city and the surroundnig countryside. Some artists also offer portraits and caricatures. The quality of all this work is quite high and it makes you wonder why the artists are selling their work on the streets and not in a Paris or Soho gallery. 5-50 euros

Livorno to Florence?

by kenadams

If you're one of the zillion people every year who cruise around the Mediterranean and have a layover stop in Livorno, you'll probably also be one of the zillion people who decide to spend the day in Florence.
Make an informed decision: by coming to Florence, you'll miss a great chance to eat some fine fish. By staying in Livorno, fish is almost all you'll get.
The best way to Florence is by train (about 12 euros round trip): the ride takes about one hour and a half (might have to change train in Pisa).
A limited bus service is also available.
Or you can hire a private limo/shuttle: I don't know much about this option, but there are rides taylor made for cruise ship passengers.

Giannino Ristorante-Rosticceria in San Lorenzo

by geeyook about Giannino in San Lorenzo

Had the best meal here the first night I was in Florence. Giannino offers typical Florentine cuisine and Florentine Beefsteak is the specialty of the house. The pasta was just right and the house wine was great. Service was friendly and prompt. There is indoor and sidewalk seating.
