Travel from Florence to Munich

by hirdy

I need to travel from Florence to Munich in late September, could anyone out there give me some suggestions that are not too expensive.

Re: Travel from Florence to Munich

by Mozumbus

I use www.skyscanner.net to search cheap flights.
Here, I can see Lufthansa operting Florence-Munich route but this is quite expensive i.e. 450 euros. Skycanner also shows an indirect connnection for 196 euros but the tranist time is longer than it should be for this kind of route.
Alternatively, you can take a flight from Pisa, which is an hour train distance from Florence. This will increase your options. Through skycanner I can see an indirect flight for 76 euros. I can also see 60 euro direct flight from Rimini on Thursday, September 24, 2009. There are various train options from Florence to Rimini via Bologna. It takes less than 3 hours and fare ranges from 25 euros to 45 euros. You may refer to www.trenitalia.com in this regard.
Hope this helps.

An overnight train Allegro Tosca runs between these cities, journey time is less than 9 hours and fare is 115 euros. Other indirect connections are also available for this route. You may refer to www.trenitalia.com in this regard which is the official train operator in Italy.

The nearest airport from which you can get a direct cheap flight to Munich is Rome Fiumicino. www.germanwings.com and www.airberlin.com fly this route. There are no budget carriers flying to Munich from Pisa or Florence (which is not really a budget carrier airport).

www.whichbudget.com will give you carriers and routes. You need to book quickly, because fares rise the nearer you get to departure date.

For train times and fares use

http://www.ferroviedellostato.it/homepage_en.html

which is an official Trenitalia link. Journey takes 8+ hours, with changes, one-way fare from around 94 euros.

By the time you have factored in transport and cost to and from the airports, and check-in/baggage reclaim time, you are better to take the train. There are services at 09.19 and 10.49 which would suit if you do not want to travel overnight. Only the 21.53 train is direct with no changes.

Travel Tips for Florence

Yes, he's real...

by meteorologist1

In Florence you can frequently see these kind of entertainers on the streets: They make themselves look like a statue or something, stand and not move a muscle. They really do a good job of this. Sometimes you have to look very hard to see it's a real person. It's a fun experience.

Oltrarno is the neighborhood...

by acemj

Oltrarno is the neighborhood on the opposite side of the River Arno from the Duomo and most of Florence's most famous sights. While it's not really off the beaten path, it does have a different feel than the rest of Florence.
It is more of a working class neighborhood where you'll see many artisan's shops and restaurants.
The photo shows ancient walls that used to guard the city rising up a hill through olive groves and villas.

Bar-knobs and Broomsticks

by tomhoward about Dolce Vita Bar

Set for going back to the hotel after a pleasant, but uneventful, night strolling around Florence. Instead, we decided to stop for one last drink in Dolce Vita - a high class bar on the edge of the city.

We soon got talking to a table of mis-matched characters next to us - a loud, brash American woman, a quiet Danish one, and an old Italian that looked like Captain Birdseye.

They knew the bar owner and we ended up having a surreal (and free) lock-in, dancing round the bar with old broomsticks and Dolce Vita kitchen aprons (which we kept as a momento).

Getting drunk with a bunch of foreigners you have only just met, and making a complete t*t out of yourself is very liberating and I thoroughly recommend it should you ever get the opportunity.

Strangely enough I can't remember any of their names...

Anyway, as only Europeans know how, this place demonstrates with style how a bar can play house music, whilst still retaining a sophistication that appeals to all ages... something I have never seen done successfully in the UK, but is replicated across most of Italy and parts of Spain.

To exemplify this point, the bar showcases modern and contemporary art pieces, so expect a bohemian-leaning clientele. (Not bottle wielding chavs like the UK). Probably none, but it is quite classy for a small bar.

THE BEST APERITIVO on offer in Florence :-)

by Sunchild about Chiaroscuro

Well - for those, who don't know what I am talking about: In many cities of Italy exists the habbit, that - mostly bars - offer an APERITIVO (not only meaning Drinks but also food!) from approx. 18h to 20h. In some bars they might call it Happy Hour, although there is a difference to what is generally known as happy hour.

And that's how it works: You pay approx. 5 to 8Euros (depends on the bar and area it is in)and you can choose ANY Drink (only 1 drink, though) and have food of the special aperitivo food to go with the drink as much as you like. Mostly this food is placed on the bar or on a small buffet.

But aperitivo and aperitivo is not the same at all. There exist big difference sbetween what various bars have on offer. This ranges from just peanuts and chips to bread bits up to big variety of food including hot meals (pasta) and salads.

The latter is on offer at this Coffee-Bar CHIAROSCURO. Absolutely great! And as far as I remember, we paid 7Euro/person. We were lucky to find out about Chiaroscuro by coincidence on our first day when searching for an aperitivo bar and went there every evening because of the great aperitivo-food!!!! You can even sit down but make sure you arrive quite early to be able to get a seat. It is absolutely packed at aperitivo times!!! For those, who, like us, do not like to eat that late at night as Italians normally do, this kind of aperitivo will a wonderful evening meal!

At the Chiaroscuro you have to pay at the cash area for your aperitivo before and then you sit down and present the receipt of your payment to the lady serving, order the drink you fancy (jummmeee - even cocktails - and they are fabulous, too!) and after that go to help yourself for the food which is placed on their bar.

Try it when in Florence. You'll love it! Aperitivo Food and any Cocktail or red wine
