Restaurant

by vincentbuhagiarooooo

Hi to all,
Is there any good budget restaurant close to SMN traIn station?

thank you in advance

Re: Restaurant

by IndianPacific

Unfortunately the SNM station restaurant now is a fast food shop. But there are plenty of reasonable restaurants between the SMN station and the famous dome.

Re: Restaurant

by leics

Lots and lots of restaurants in the area, and I've not been in one yet which has disappointed.

I do highly recommend Trattoria ZaZa in Piazza Mercato Centrale (maybe 5 minutes walk from SMN). It's popular with locals as well as visitors. Best to book in the evening unless you (like me) are happy to eat early:

They do an excellent fixed-price daily menu as well...too much for me to eat, but sooo delicious! :-)

The nearby Da Garibaldi (also on P Mercato Centrale) was also excellent. Reviews on my Florence pages.

Travel Tips for Florence

Highlights from a wintry weekend

by jayhawk2000

Compared to the other Italian 'big three', Florence is far more compact than Rome and a lot easier to navigate than Venice, so you can cover everything in a couple of days.

During our own long weekend we visited the Uffizi art gallery, Bargello sculpture museum, Duomo/campanile/baptistry, Opera museum (which has the sculpture from inside the Duomo), the famous bridge on the Arno and Santa Croce which is a vast church with many frescoes and features to enjoy (the Duomo is stark and plain, which is why I recommend you see its Opera museum).

We climbed the campanile instead of the cathedral dome - it's a more straightforward climb and of course is the only way of looking at the cathedral from a height.

All these are in the city centre, within walking distance of each other. We bought tickets to the Uffizi for a timed entry to avoid the queues, but it wasn't particularly busy on a February weekend.

We didn't go to the Accademia on this trip to see the original David (there is a copy by the town hall and another on the hill across the river which has a stupendous view over town).

Fantastic food is at I Tarocchi trattoria across the river, delicious organic gelati at Grom near the Duomo and terrific little wine bar called Note di Vino which like most places has free snacks in the evening.

We stayed in a 2-star pensione called Dali a few steps from the Duomo which I would recommend, but it is a basic budget option.

Perseo in Signoria Square

by littlesam1

This is another of my favorite statues in Florence. I have always like the myth about Perseo and this statue with him holding the head of Medusa tells the story very dramatically. This is found in the Signoria Square where there are numerous statues and copies of statues. This particular statue has been in Signoria Square for over 400 years. However in 1993 there was a terrorist explosion near Signoria Square at the Ufizzi Gallery. A car bomb exploded and the statue broke into thousands of pieces. It took eight years to restore the damaged statue. But it is back in the square today and I am glad I had a chance to see it.

Daytrip to Pisa

by HORSCHECK

Pisa is only about an hour by train from Florence. The trains are frequent and cheap, therefore it is worth a daytrip. Pisa at the mouth of the river Arno has about 95.000 inhabitants.
The most famous sights are located at the Campo dei Miracoli: the Leaning Tower, the Duomo and the Baptistry.

The new boy in town

by tan1415 about Macarthurs Glenn; Barbarino Outlet

This is the northern outlet. !00 stores inside the Macarthur Glen barbarino shopping center. We know the Macarthur Glen style of outletshopping. They are spread out over europe and the sua. Normally you find the same shops everywhere.

But in Florence its different. Here there is already an established outlet centers which already have most of thebig names brands.

So Macarthur Glen misses out on these big name brands...but doesnt mean its bad. To be honest I think this is more diverse array of shops that should fit any wallet and taste. And IMO are perfect complement to the traditional outlets.

With 100 shops you could easily spend a few hours shopping here and its within easy reach of florence and lies right next to the highway. It has some of the high end fashon brands.Like gucci, D&G and prada.But also exclusive brands like Pal Zileri, Ferre etc.

I got some of the best bargains here. It seems the exclusive stores had some truly outstanding bargains. We didnt have enough time...but it seems each store has a few items that are special offers and are huge bargains.
Ralph lauren polo's for 20€, sweaters for 10€
Ferre Dressshirt for 29€
Zileri Suits for 150€
Bruno Magli Shoes for as little as 60€

Depends on where you are...

by snmred

Depends on where you are coming from. When I go back to visit my family in the States, I book a flight in and out of Milan because it's usually about $200 less expensive than Rome or other major airports near. I then take the train to Florence which is about a three hour beautiful ride through some of Tuscany.
Florence does have an airport but it is pretty small, the next largest one is in Pisa where I just booked a round trip to London, on short notice, for $80!!! Pisa is about a 40 minute train ride from Florence and the train takes you to the airport.
Use your two feet and by all means, do not rent a car. This city has the worst streets and there is always traffic. It's small, you don't need a car unless you want to go into the country.
