Hi Lengleng, I stayed in the Plaza Lucchesi on my first visit to Florence. The location is excellent. It's by the river Arno & only a short walk to the market, shops, Ponte Vecchio etc. www.plazalucchesi.it

Florence is very walkable, so you need not worry too much as long as you choose somewhere fairly central. If you draw a circle on the map starting from the railway station S. M. Novella anywhere on that line, or just outside it, will take you about 10/15 minutes to walk to the Duomo.

There is a huge daily (not Sundays)indoor foodmarket in P San Lorenzo (just SE of the station, surrounded by street stalls with clothes, scarves etc), so being fairly close to there would be useful. There are some good restaurants on that square too, and plenty more all over Florence....you won't have trouble finding somewhere to eat!

Travel Tips for Florence

Recorrer Florencia cansa....

by fga

Recorrer Florencia cansa. Además de las caminatas, hay que sumarle el hecho de permanecer de pie durante mucho tiempo recorriendo los museos. Por esa razón es conveniente hacer pausas en los cafés que existen alrededor de la plaza y de El Duomo. Luego se puede seguir por la Iglesia de Santa Croce, unanecrópolis en la que se encuentra las tumbas de Miguel Angel, Maquiavelo, Leonardo Bruni, Galileo y Rossini, además de los monumentos funerarios a Dante y al poeta Alfieri. También se encuentran los célebres frescos de Giotto con las imágenes de la vida de San Francisco.
Otro sitio que no puede dejar de conocerse es la famosa Galería de los Oficios. Se trata de una de las mas destacadas pinacotecas del mundo. Donde se puede apreciar la evolución de la pintura italiana, gracias a las colecciones acumuladas por los Medicis. Se encuentran obras de Cimabue y Giotto, y las célebres obras del Renacimiento la Primavera y el Nacimiento de Venus de Botticelli. También se exhiben creaciones de Rafael, Miguel Angel y Leonardo Da Vinci.

Packing List

by Calif.Joy

Re: shoes- I knew there would be a lot of walking on the trip, so I prepared with a new white pair of walking/tennis style shoes- very comfortable. I learned AFTER my first trip that these are very uncool & branded me as a tourist. Oh well...

Bargain or Browse.

by SullyBiz about San Lorenzo Market

We walked through this open air market a few times just to browse on our way to other things. It was actually nice just to flow along with the rest of the bargain hunters through the endless stalls and down side streets in all directions. This is a great place to pick up gifts and souvenirs.

It can be a little tougher to barter here than other markets in the world. Some vendors just won't budge. But you have to realize that if one vendor won't bend another one two stalls down has the same exact merchandise. You can't be timid when it comes to bargaining. They do this for a living and they know when they have you. It can't hurt to try to save yourself a few bucks. The main purchases you can make here are of leather goods, handbags, jewelry, knick knacks, clothing, belts, and scarves, although there is much more. The quality and assortment of goods ranges quite a bit and prices can vary between 2 to 200 e. I definitely walked away with a very cheap (price and quality) mini statue while my friend left with a gorgeous and expensive leather coat.

Bus Travel

by KiNyA

We came to Florence in the morning after driving all night. This picture was taken maybe 20 minutes before we reached our destination. Everybody except the driver, guide, my friend (the one who took this photo) and mem was sleeping. My face is pale, maybe because of a lot of alcohol in my blood lol.
It seems the drive was tiring...

La Pentola dell'Oro

La Pentola dell'Oro

This is a very unique place in the Santa Croce Area. No sign at the door, you have to ring and when you enter your halfway standing in the kitchen. You sit in an ancient cellar. To enter you need a membership card (tessera, which you can buy at the entrance valid for one year) but it's really worth buying it. Alessi and his team cook very traditional Tuscan food, he has collected medieval recipes that sometimes sound very strange but I have loved every dish so far. Just everything is great!
