tour guide suggestion for Florence

by kroth78

My family of 4 (including 2 teenagers) will be visiting Florence. We really only have one whole day to take in as much as we can. Can anyone suggest a great, knowledgeable, energetic tour guide that we could hire for the day?

by stevefrancyclancy

rather than a guisd etehre are several hop on hop off tour buses circuling the city its a goodway to see alot in a short space of time. i would suggest though it might not be necessary alot of teh best museums/attractions are quite close together in clusters and public transport is not bad for getting around either. I would personally just bring your walking shoes but if you have childrean with you the tour could be waht your looking for. heard nothing but good things from anyone who did one. you'll love florence by the way its a great city

We traveled in Italy last summer with our teenage daughter and did a couple of walking tours with the Context company. http://florence.contexttravel.com/main/home/ We did not do the Florence tour but did do Rome and Ostia Antica with them. I'd highly recommend Context.

hello
Most of the more important monuments in Florence are in downtown so i think that the best thing to do is to get a good "touritic guide" book and walk. I can suggest to visit:
Il Duomo
Via dei Calzaioli
Palazzo Vecchio
Ponte Vecchio
Piazza Santa Croce

When i travel i usually use guide of "loneley planet" but i don't know how it is for Florence. Anyway everything is a walking distance (even if you have teens), and it's not a good thing to do moving inside Florence by car or by bus or by cab. It's ever full of traffic and in this period they are doing the "tramvia" so...better you go walking. It's full of bars evrywhere so when you are tired you can stop and get and ice cream or something else, and in the same time you have time for see and visit lots of things. Obiusvly...it's a quick tour..for visiting everything in Florence you need much more time.
Cheers

Travel Tips for Florence

Florence Tip

by daisyanna

The sun was hot and the mood was high and here I am enjoying my walk over the Ponte Vecchio. Once you go over the bridge from the main square, you follow the road through to the Pitti Palace and take in the famous Boboli Gardens....did that, loved it!!

Take a Break

by SJTravel

If you have been walking and sightseeing all day, I recommend taking a nice break under the Loggia near Palazzo Vechio and the Uffizi. There, you can sit under the loggia's roof and get away from the sun and give your feet a rest. If you are lucky, then there may be an art class learning about one of the sculptures in the loggia and you can sit close enough to listen. If not, pick a sculpture and sit and look at it for a bit. Or you can sit facing the piazza in front of the loggia and people watch. Either way, it will give a welcome respite from a long day of sightseeing. If you are an artist, you can take out your own sketchpad and draw one of the sculptures. I sat and journaled for a bit. It was nice to be able to at least jot down some notes from my busy day so I wouldn't forget all that I had seen. You can even use the time to look at a map or your guidebook to plan your next destination. Either way, the loggia is a nice place to relax a bit out of the sun and just enjoy Florence. One thing you should note is that you cannot eat or drink under there. There are guards that make sure you are not disobeying the rules and they are quite loud in letting you know what you can and cannot do. Even if you don't want to relax under the loggia, I still recommend a visit. Michaelangelo's "Rape of the Sabines" is such a powerful sculpture in and of itself, it is definitely worth the trip. It is so life-like, where the mans hand is on the Sabine's thigh is so real, the sculpture indents as skin would.

Souvenirs and clothing?

by cinthya_in_victoria about La Galleria

We were taken there by our tour company. In this shop you find all kinds of souvenirs, bags, suitcases, clothing, jewlery, etc. Prices were high, I can't lie, but they have very nice stuff.
I bought an apron for my mom, it was very cute but expensive (7€)

Fly to Pisa (PSA)

by kenadams

Galileo Galilei airport in Pisa has become one of the busiest destinations for lowcost airlines in Italy. Ryanair now connects Pisa to London (STN), Glasgow Prestwick, Hamburg-Lubeck, Liverpool, Brussels Charleroi, Girona Barcelona and Frakfurt-Hahn.
Easyjet flies to Paris Orly and Berlin Schoenefeld, Hapag Lloyd Express takes you to Berlin Tegel, Hanover, Stuttgart and Cologne-Bonn. Basiqair flies to Amsterdam and Norwegian to Oslo.
Seasonal flights to Coventry, Bournemouth and Doncaster Sheffield are available with Thomsonfly .
Most major airlines, including Air France, Alitalia, British Airways, and Lufthansa (by means of an affiliate, Air Dolomiti) also serve the port.
A train is available from the airport to Pisa and Florence: tickets can be purchased at the tourist information office, the train departs on the opposite side of the terminal. Remeber to punch your tickets in one of the yellow machines before boarding the train. The cost of the ride to Florence is EUR 5 one way, travel time is one hour and twenty minutes. Pisa airport (PSA) is a better facility than its Florence (FLR) competitor, and it's easier to get to the center of Florence from PSA than it is from FLR.
Terravision, a Ryanair partner, offers an express bus connection to Florence (SMN train station) for EUR 7.50 one way or EUR 12 round trip. For schedule information and tickets visit Ryanair , click on "Destinations" then on "Express bus connections".

A lot more than 31 flavours!

by argentia about Festival del Gelato

The Festival has over 30 flavours of gelato--some that I've never seen before! Want Snickers in ice cream form? This is the place for you. It is located right in the middle of the tourist area and is always full. There are a few tables but it is mostly order-and-go. They do sell water and soft drinks (Fanta, Coke, etc.).
