Best way to get from Florence to Mugello MotoGP June 1

by LLeon

We are attending the MotoGP race at Mugello Circuit on June 1. We currently have hotel reservations in Florence and are trying to determine if it is feasible to take the train from Florence to Borgo San Lorenzo on race day (June 1). If yes, does anyone know if there is a shuttle bus running due to the event from the train station to the track and/or due to the traffic, would it be feasible to get a taxi from the station to the track. We would prefer not to have to walk 5km. Taking a taxi from Florence seemed expensive. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm off to there as well but i've decided to take the camping option at San Piero a Sieve which is quite close to the circuit. A few of my friends are also staying in Florence city centre, they are getting a shuttle bus direct to the track which was organised through the company they have booked with. They could be worth a try to see if they have any spaces on any of their buses.

Florence by bike

by Nexus7

This was quite possibly the most enjoyable thing I did the entire time in Italy. For $55 we started off at 9AM and biked around Florence and the hillsides and vineyards of Tuscany. A grueling 14km of biking uphill interupted by a stop at a vineyard where we were shown the making of olive oil and wine. We then sat in the wine cellar which is kept very cool and proceeded to eat lunch that was served by our hosts. We talked to a winemaster who showed us the ropes and then were served two free glasses of wine and a shot of grapa which then was all available for sale afterwards. Absolutely terrific. Then we biked back down the hills and into town. The staff of this biking tour really deserved a lot of credit for their professionalism and entertainment. Be advised that the bike ride is not for the weak. Bring your biking gear such as sweats and good gloves. The bikes, helmet and water bottle are given to you. the water bottle, which has the name of the place on it, is given to you for free.

In and Out

by vickss

Italy like most of Europe is best travelled by the train. Florence has more than one train station but the biggest one is Santa Maria Novella. Florence in Italian is called Firenze so when looking for train timings etc look for Firenze.

The train connections are pretty good and I guess from Rome there is a train every hour or so.
I reached Florence by a local train from Pisa which cost about 5-6 Euro. It takes about one hour from Pisa and the local train is not too crowded. Theres free seating so just enter and find a seat for yourself. I think the express trains would be costlier(obviously)

I took a Eurostar from Florence to Venice which cost about 28 Euro in 2nd class with pretty comfy seats and nice window seat. Its a three hour journey from Florence

The website of Trenitalia below is in English and one cannot book local trains here. For that you would need to do so at the station. Unlike my home country(India), I dont find getting a train ticket in Europe that big a problem. But for long distance its always better to book early.

Fast Food Florence Style

by lizzie1715 about Numerous around Della Signoria

Fast, is the only thing that McDonalds, KFC, Red Rooster et al, have in common with Florence's fast food shops. In Florence they sell real food, beautiful rollsstuffed with parma ham, fresh tomatoes, lettuce... Fantastic. Pasticerrias also sell beautiful sweets and hot chocolate second only to that found in Barcelona. The gelato remains a favourite

A word of warning though! If you want to trully try all the fast foods available, plan on putting on at least a kiligram per week.

For this particular tip I will let the pictures do the talking
