Where to buy the matchtickets...
There are some ticket-offices outside the headtribune, to the right from Curva Fiesole. The cheapest tickets (10-15 euro normally) goes to the curves, while a ticket on the longsides of the stadium costs more. From 30-120 euro normally. Normally the stadium isn’t sold out, but for the big games against Juventus, Milan, Inter and Roma you should try to buy your ticket in advance.
The best side to sit at is at the headtribune, where you’ll have the hardcore-supporters in Curva Fiesole to your left, and the away-supporters on the other, opposite, side.
The Bargello was built in 1255 as the city's town hall. It was the the oldest seat of gvernment surviving in Florence. In the 16th century it was the residence of the chief of police and a prison: executions took place here until 1786. After extensive renovation, it became one of Italy's first national museums in 1865. The Bargello houses a superb collection of Florentine Renaissance sculpture, with rooms dedicated to the work of Michelangelo, Donatello, Giambologna and Cellini, as well as a collection of Mannerist bronzes.
Visit S. Miniato around 17.30...........
.................and you may, as I did, hear the Olivetan monks' plainsong. Sitting on the steps of the crypt (which hold the remains of S. Miniatus, martyred around 250 CE) listening to them made me realise that people had probably heard much the same thing on the same spot for over 1000 years (a shrine was here in the 8th century, the present building was started in 1013 and is the second oldest church in Florence).
It's a bit of a trek to S. Miniato, but buses 12 and 13 pass nearby (get off at Piazza Michelangelo). The church, the views and the monks' plainsong are all worth the effort.

Don't Miss this Fun & Excellent Restaurant!
Il Latini may be the noisiest, most crowded trattoria in Florence but it's also one of the most fun. The genial host, Torello ("little bull") Latini, presides over his four big dining rooms, and somehow it feels as if you're dining in his home.
We had no idea what to eat because we were not given a menu. Under hundreds of hanging prosciutto ham hocks, the waiters try their hardest to keep a menu away from you and serve instead a filling, traditional set meal with bottomless wine. Suddenly the food arrived and they just kept flowing!
Ample portions of prosciutto (smoked ham), cold starters, salads, pastas, meat dishes, and desserts kept flowing until we told the waiters we had enough! Everyone agreed to the arrosto misto, and we got full platter heaped high with assorted roast meats. We finished off the meal with a round of cantucci with vin santo (sweet liquor). Both Florentines and tourists alike tucked into their food with gusto and aplomb.
This restaurant is a must if you go to Florence - Euro 40 per person was great value for a fantastic multi-courses meals and lots of good house wine plus excellent sweet sparkling wine and sweet liquor to go with our desserts. If you don't want the full course meal, you can stop after the first course (pasta) and proceed directly to dessert - or skip the dessert; this will save you money and some stomach ache later !!!
Although reservations are advised, there's always a wait outside its doors, which opens at 7.30pm every night except Mondays. Everything was fantastic quality - my favorites were the Bruchettas with liver spreads (very delicious), the spaghetti and ravioli, the fillet steak (Florentine Steak) which was huge and cooked to perfection, and lastly, the desserts. By the end of the meal, we were all very full that we could hardly moved !!
I will definitely return to Il Latini Restaurant again. In fact, I have been to Il Latini 2x already, for the first 2x I was in Florence. I didn't go the 3rd time I was in Florence because my sister didn't want to have a huge dinner. But next time I am in Florence with friends, I will go there!
