train from florence

by easyout4u

I'm leaving florence by train and like to get to the ares in rome near the metro ciro massimo ( near my hotel).Can I get off around that area or do I need to got to the termini station and work my way back.Or is it better to take a bus from florence. thanks

#1. The train will be much faster than any bus, although there are trains of different speeds, so you need to balance time versus money (see www.trenitalia.com/en/index.html and compare solutions, faster trains are more expensive).

#2. Go to Termini, then take the Metro which is downstairs. On the B line in the direction of Laurentina (in EUR), the third stop is "Circo Massimo" which is what I assume you meant.

#3. While there is a commuter station that is closer to your destination than Termini, you're not likely to find a train from Florence that stops here (I haven't looked, so it's a gut feel), and the Florence to Termini by Trenitalia, then Metro to Circo Massimo is so simple, why do anything else?

Entirely agree with Bill. Train to Termini (no point at all in taking the bus, unless you have oodles of time to use up) then Metro.

Even better, if you go into the bus station directly outside Termini station you'll be able to buy your travel pass (3 days = 11 euro) from one of the booths there (on the left, not the central information point). Then you can just nip down into the Metro, validate your pass for the first and only time and go to where you need to be.

Rome public transport is excellent, cheap and easy to use. You'll have no problem getting to your hotel from Termini (you could walk it in around half an hour anyway).

Travel Tips for Florence

Watch the sunset from Piazzale Michelangelo

by Andraf

We got to Piazzale Michelangelo late in the afternoon and decided to wait for the sunset here. We sat on the stairs and admired the city and when the sunset came the view was so beautiful. There is an outdoor cafe where one can sit.

3 "S" - Shoes, shoes and shoes

by polinia

Shoes must be comfortable... that's it.
When your feet are tired after the whole day in Florence - forget about relaxation. Your eyes willn't give them any chance - they will force your tired body to make more moves - just to see one more piece of Florence.

Bartering for the Best

by hobgoblins about Souvenir Stands

There are several little souvineer kiosks in Florence, and they seem to be concentrated near the leather market and the other must-see attractions. Along the road you can find these merchants selling all sorts of odds and ends that at first glance seem like the same junk to be found in every other city you visit. However, slow down and take a look!

The merchants are extremely friendly (or maybe they're just extremely friendly to young, blonde American girls) and are more than willing to barter for sale. My favorite souvineer from Florence is not the postcards, the leather jacket, or the junky 'Firenze' t-shirt. My best purchase, by far, is the little leather bracelet that I bought from one of these street venders. They're cheep, durable (mine lasted a year without having taken it off, if I remember correctly), and they represent Florence in a unique way. The bracelet I bartered with the merchant for was priced at 8 euros, and with a bit of smiling and a promise to be his American girlfriend (sure, buddy, whatever you say...) I got two bracelets for 3 euros.

Use what God gave you!

A piede like the italians say. Florence is a small city but there is so much to see. Why spend money on taxes when you can just walk. Believe me I lived there for two months and I walked everywhere. Got rid of some 4 kilo's :) Buses are frequent but boring and overgrowded

Best Bang for your Buck in Firenze

by Fritzanity about Baldovino's

For the typical approx. 20 year old traveler, this is the best affordable meal Florence offers, agreed by locals and study abroad kids alike. I had cheese raviolo sauteed in a pear butter sauce here and it was literally top 3 foods I have ever tasted in my life. You can't go wrong with anything on this menu, and the atmosphere is fun and the location ideal for going out afterwards (just to the left side of Santa Croce church). Cheese Ravioli Sauteed in a Pear Butter Sauce- does this need further explanation? It's the creative combination of fantastic fruitful flavors with the freshness that food in Florence assures at the legit local hot spots.
