Does anyone know anything about horseracing at the track in Florence?

Re: Horseracing

by travelfrosch

You don't mean the Palio di Siena, do you? That's a horse race all right, but it's not at "the track," and it's not in Florence.

Re: Horseracing

No, I saw something about horse racing at Ippodromo ellle Cascine in Florence, but cannot find it again. Just looking for something off the beaten path to do there.

i went to the races when i was in rome and it was very interesting indeed

but because it is not something tourists do it was very hard to find out where the ippodromo was and what day a meeting was on

eventually a very nice girl in an info booth riffled through a telephone book and gave me the number to ring and luckily i got someone who spoke english and he gave me the time of the next meeting and how to get there

but it wasn't easy

because not all the locals know the where and when of the race meetings

Re: Horseracing

by travelgourmet

Some may find your question a bit odd considering the vast amount of art in Florence and that most questions are regarding what to see or do. I find your question refreshing. VT member fgfi (Francesca) lives in Florence. She mentions Le Cascine Park and horse riding but not racing. I have heard that horse racing does occur at the Ippodromo delle Muline, or Ippodromo ellle Cascine near the Parco delle Cascine, off the Piazza Vittorio Veneto about four bridges from the Ponte Vecchio. But, I do not know of the dates of racing or if what I heard is true.

Re: Horseracing

by iccuf

thank you so much. Yes there is so much art in Florence. We have been there 3 time and this time will spend 5 weeks there. So while I will probably feel the need to repeat some of the art visits I wanted something more 'local' - would that be the correct word. Again, thank you

Travel Tips for Florence

Frequent street performers...

by meteorologist1

Frequently you will be interrupted by street performers in Florence. That is, you will suddenly hear loud drums or some instrument to draw your attention. They seem to be performers, but their performance sometimes is not that spectacular or exciting. So there's no need for you to go watch them every time.

Florence Tip

by Sergiuz

San Gimignano's golden age dates back in the 14th Century and still nowadays the town luckily keeps preserved its medieval urban structure.
The towers, now reduced to the number of 14, where originally 72, thus earning San Gimignano the appellative of 'town with the beautiful towers'.

When in Florence, within the...

by lichinga

When in Florence, within the Borgo San Lorenzo market, you may try a unique
food experience. There's a small van selling 'panini con il
lampredotto': it's the only place I know this is sold. It's very
interesting, because it is a traditional poor food, made from the interiors of
cows (mainly uterus) cooked with tomato, onions and pepper, then cut in thin
slices and served in a sandwich.Great, cheap and nutritious!

The picture shows the fountain of the dolphins, close to piazza San Marco, at the opposite side of San Lorenzo's market.
As soon as you finished the compulsory items in Florence, hire a car, or ride
on a bycicle and just wander around the hilly countryside. Wherever you'll reach
it will be a place worth a visit. If you want priority targets, I would say:
Pisa, San Gimignano, Siena, Lucca.

Are we in Ireland?

by kcochran111 about Josua Tree Pub, Fiddler's Elbow

You'll think you've traveled to Ireland with the abundance of Murphy's on tap in Florence pubs. Two of my favorite Irish pubs are the Joshua Tree and Fiddler's Elbow.

Joshua Tree is owned and operated by three friends of mine. Simone, Paolo, and Max are used to crowds of tourists in their pub...they host huge groups of Americans every year. Hit Joshua Tree during Happy Hour (4-9pm) and save 50% on pints of your favorite Irish beer. You'll also avoid the crowds of Italian punk youth that frequent Joshua Tree after 9.

Fiddler's Elbow is just down the way from Joshua Tree, in Piazza Santa Maria Novella. Sit outside under the huge umbrellas and get served by various Irish waiters when the weather's nice. This larger pub can also accomodate more of your friends.

A place for local food

by Alex_71 about Osteria Mastrobulletta

The restaurant is big enough but it's better if you book expecially during the weekend.It's informal and friendly,and you can taste firenze way of cooking.The list of wine is good and,least but not last,it's not expensive.It's not cheaper but you pay the right money.Obiusvly it can change if you get important and expensive wines.Anyway,i like this place,expecially after the football matches.Sometimes you can also meet Fiorentina's player here. Absolutely the"bistecca alla fiorentina" or the "tagliata"...finally we can eat ther real fiorentina's steak after the bad sotry of mad cow and in this place it's really great:-)
