Florence or Siena

by orchid1949

From Rapallo I need to visit Florence and Siena. What is the good place to stay, Florence or Siena for one night ? After that to take a flight back home, is it Rome or from Milan to Asia ?

Re: Florence or Siena

by lucy60

Well, from Rapallo you meet Florence first and you may stay here for the night, then go to Siena and Rome. But I think that's impossibile to visit these two towns in so few time. Siena needs the whole day only to see most important sites. For Florence you need much more time (minumim 3 days). Regards.

of course, as Lucy said, you have not enough time to even get a bit of either city. that said, florence has better train service to both rome and milan and therefore the more likely place to stay. both airports are at fair distance from florence. if you are flying from florence or taking the train to either, just get the best airfare back to asia.

From what I know of airports these days, I'd guess you will get a better flight from Rome than from Milan Malpensa. Malpensa has had lots of cuts in airlines serving that airport and Rome is quite a bit larger and busier. Check on the web to be sure.. and try to get the best price. Siena is a bit out of the way, so for one night, I think somewhere near the railroad station in Florence is probably the best choice.

I stayed in Florence for 3 nights, and visited Siena and San Gimignano, by bus, on a day trip. Of course, one night doesnt do justice to either city. But as our other colleagues advised, Florence, unlike Siena, has its own train station. Our hotel, in Santa Maria Novella, was a 5 minute walk to the Florence station. Now, we did take a 3 hour day trip to Pisa. You take the train from Florence to Pisa, then cab it to the Tower. Snap your photos of you holding up the Tower, and take a romantic walk along the Arno (in the moonlight, ooh la la) back to the station, if time and weather allow.

Travel Tips for Florence

Streets - losing yourself 2

by dvideira

Florence is a hard-to-be-lost-in city, as long as you know where the river is...
But when you are on the tiny inner streets,
they are sometimes so narrow that they almost challenge one's sense of direction.

Your feet is the key to it all.

by tan1415

Use ultra comfortable shoes. The ancient city center has the pavement to match it. All very beautifull and authentic...but the pavement could be a true hell to walk in. Everything is so uneven. Its a killer for your feet and legs. Its almost comparable to cross country hiking. And everything here is by foot.

After planning everything out...your feet would be the breaking point during your trip.
You won't go to that great restaurant because its just to far.
You miss out on sights because your feet cant keep up with the pace.

So strongly suggest getting your best walking shoes. Forget about fashion...think comfort 1st , 2nd and last.

After 1 week my feet are still feeling tender.

PS its almost like a cross between weekend trip to NYC and natural park.

Trays, Trays, and Trays!

by ChartIt about Several in Area

I have included a photo of the shop where i bought my families trays. You can get them in the San Lorenzo Market, and through out Florence. But this store had a lot of them, a wide variety, and quality. The prices were reasonable. Florentine Trays. These are gold leaf and painted trays. My grandmother had hers for more then 30 years, and they were the only things my aunts wished they had boughten more of. So when I went to Florence I had to buy many many many trays. They come in all shapes and sizes, picture frames, mirrors, and desks accesories. The sizes like i said vary from some 20 inches around, and or wide if you would rather have a rectangle to typical size for coasters. The picture frames vary also in size and shape to full sized orante mirrors and painting sizes to actual picture frames. The carving styles and accent colors vary but all of them are covered in gold. These are classic peices, and really the main thing everyone wanted from my family. Be careful of the quailty trays, and shop around. You may not need to buy 20 trays, 5 picture frames, and the like. If you do however, do yourself the favor- Ship them home, and take deep breaths over the bill. Dont forget the insurance on the trays, it is worth the peice of mind. 20 inch round tray 55 euro, 15 inch rectangles 30 euro, picture frames *small* 13 euro, Larger wall mirrors 200+ Euro. Remember in the United States, these prices are still way cheaper. I was in shops down in Lousiana last March and saw the same 20 inch trays for nearly 500 dollars. I definatly shipped them home after I bought them. And it is a good idea, they are bulky but light.

Not much parking

by Willettsworld

Parking is a bit of a problem in Florence. As I was driving round Italy, I had no choice but to drive in Florence. I managed to find my hotel but had to park in a car garage which cost 21 euros/day so bear this in mind. Florence is a very compact area so walking around is a good & sensible option.

Beer

by rp6686 about Birra Moretti

You'll find along via Vigna Vecchia pleasant restaurants with nice prices...

Do not forget that they'll had cover and service to your bill.
Expect to pay for service 10 to 20% of the total.
Don't worry, you can't forget, they'll put it visible in the bill. Birra Moretti is a light nice beer.
Not excellent, not bad...
