Help and advice needs about Florance

by selinderen

FLORANSA
Hi,
I will be in Florance on the 3rd week of May for 2 days. I will probably stay in a hotel in Montecatini Terme.
I would like to visit Siena,Pisa, Montepulciano - Val d’Orcia, San Gimignano and Lucca but need your advices.Is there any other places worth spending time?And how can I visit all above in two days?Can anyone help me to make a good plan including transportation ?

Thanks a lot.

Montecatini Terme is not Florence. It is 66km away.

If you wish to visit the places you have mentioned (and explore wonderful Medieval Florence, which you should) then you should find a hotel in Florence itself.

Travelling to the places you mention from Montecatini Terme is not as simple or as fast as travelling from Florence.

You cannot visit all of the places in two days....unless you just want to 'tick boxes' (even if you find that it is feasible to visit them all you will only have the briefest of time in each place).

I assume you want to visit Florence itself? You should allow at least 2 days to do this.

Siena and Lucca both deserve at least a full morning or afternoon, and preferably a whole day.

You can visit Pisa or Lucca easily by train from Florence Santa Novella station (journey time of around an hour to each). Montepulciano takes 2+ hours.

will give you train times and fares in English.

It is best to visit Siena by bus from Florence, as the stationis some way from the historical centre. Bus timetable here:

under 'Lines Firenze Siena'.

For San Gimignano you need to get to Poggibonsi (train) and then take a bus. Bus timetable here:

I hope "two days" is a typo and you mean "two weeks" because that is the amount of time you'll need to cover all the places on your list in a way that makes sense...

Re: Help and advice needs about Florance

by Buckz

the first few answers have already said you cannot cover all the locations, so a few details other details. Car hire can be cheap, price it around. driving between the towns is easy, driving in them & parking is difficult. buses and trains are good.
Pisa has "Sights to see", Lucca has more an aura than any particular sight, though the Forum/Arena is impressive.
Restaurants stick to meal times, so you will have to too. Check the cover charges they add to otherwise very cheap meals.

Restaurants may stick to mealtimes but you will be able to get something to eat at cafes and bars at other time with no problems.

It will cost you more to sit outside and eat.

Travel Tips for Florence

The Flower of Italy

by Goner

So much to see in this charming city. Tour the Santa Maria del Fiore Duomo and Bapisty. It's a beautiful work of architecture. It's orange-tiled dome has become Florence's most famous symbol. It's the fourth largest church in Europe and is Florence's tallest building. The Bapistry and bronze doors date back to the 4th century. The east doors Michelangelo dubbed the 'Gates of Paradise', however you will not see the original doors on the Baptistry, they can be seen in the Museo dell'Opera del duamo, those on the Bapistry are copies.

The Campanile is clad in Tuscan marble in colors of pink green and white. It wasn't completed until 22 years after the death of Giotto, the designer. The mosaics in the Bapistry depict the Last Judgment and were designed by Ghiberti. The Uffizi is Italy's greatest art gallery and was built in 1560-80 to house offices (uffizi) for Duke Cosimo I. The large glass wall that allows much light into the gallery was made possible by the use of iron reinforcement. Francesco I displayed the Medici art treasures and the Uffizi still houses the paintings from the collection.

Botticelli's 'The Birth of Venus' is the most recognizable painting and the Duke and Duchess of Urbino will not be forgotten as her portrait was probably based on her death mask (she is very pale...).

Best to take a walking tour, there are many guides available, they will give you the city highlights, then you can go on your own. You must see the Piazza Santa Croce and the inside of The Church of Santa Corce, a Gothic masterpiece where Michelangelo, Galileo and Machiavelli are buried. Must see also the Piazza Signori with its sculptures and fountains, the Palazzo Vecchio and its courtyard. Then take a stroll across the bridge 'Ponte Vecchio which is lined with tantalizing goldsmiths and jewelers.

Have your portrait drawn...

by meteorologist1

Florence is full of art. Art is so rich here that you have the oppurtunity in Florence to have your portrait sketched out by local artists. The result is pretty professional indeed. Art is in the locals' blood.

Go into the suburbs of...

by unigirl

Go into the suburbs of Florence...take a bus into the outskirts and enjoy a meal with real locals. Ask at your hotel to find the name of a good place to go, or just jump on a random bus and go with the wind!

For those of you who aren't...

by Krystynn

For those of you who aren't interested in mingling with the party crowds or club-hopping, another great recommendation that I can think of is to stroll along the banks of the River Arno and just watch the world sail by..... It's an enchanting experience for sure and it's free!!!

Art nouveaux restaurant & delicious truffles

by Oana_bic about Caffe Pitti

This was definately one of our best meals in Italy.
Right in the Pitti Square and facing Palazzo Pitti, with an outdoor patio, the restaurant has very friendly staff and delicious truffle dishes. The four of us had seafood and carpaccio as antipasti, truffle pasta and risotto, an amazing duck in secondi piatti and two bottles of Proseco (not including the complimentary glasses from the house).
