Trains from Rome to Florence on Jan 1st

by Bothwell

Hello. I'm making my travel plans well in advance and would like to check if anyone would know for certain if there are trains running from Rome to Florence on January 1st, New year's day? Which trains would be the most ideal to take? I'd appreciate any feedback.

Sure there are [plenti of] trains running Jan,1st
for timetable and fares it's a little bit early, for timetable you have to wait till October and for fares, 60 days in advance..

For reference, you may have a look at, the official website, with dummy dates...

Timetables get changed but not radically, so the above will give you a fare idea of fares and timetables, good enough for planning

Hope this helps. Ciao

Hello. I tried booking via Rail Europe today ROME->Florence. The result says:

"Sometimes it is necessary to break down longer journeys to find tickets. If you have checked your travel dates and tried dividing your itinerary, other possible reasons that schedules were not found include:
1. No reservations are available on the requested route.
2. Trains are sold out."

Trenitalia does the same. It says "No Solutions Found."

Could anyone please suggest where else we can book the train for the above route and date?

Travel Tips for Florence

Come to Florence in February.

by wroclawiak


February is a very good month to visit Florence. The hotel prices are not so high. I found a single room with shower, tv, air condition amd breakfast in the three star hotel for 24 Euro. I booked via The price for the room in the summer is 80 Euro.

There were no queues in any museums. So you don't have to book in advance. Museum booking fees are not so cheap as you think. From 3 to 10 Euro. If you want to visit two or three museums you can save money for a good meal.

If you are hungry you can find a free place in cheap restaurants and I think the prices in the summer are higher than in the winter.

The weather was ok. About 15-18 Grad Celsius.

Oh, there are so many things...

by Bigs

The best thing is the scenic drive with bus number 12 up to the Piazzale Micheangelo, where you get an amazing view over the city... The drive up there is wonderful too, cause it leads through the charming hills that surrounding Florence in the south! The thick stones the buildings are build of sometimes are great in a typical way. All houses are so beautiful. I also loved the copy of the 'David' statue on the Piazza del Signoria. I didn´t thought that it was that huge! And the view from the Giotto´s Tower was amazing, but the stairs up there were a lot!

What I miss most? The wonderful Italian food!!!!!!

Oltarno - Craftsmanship

by alloquisha

Florence is a city long-known for its tradition of craftsmanship. Here in a shop in the Oltarno, we stumbled upon a sort of antiques storehouse full of very interesting things - I really have no clue what they are, but they were certainly kinda cool to look at. The city's history is for sale, but at a steep price tag. Take a digi. photo instead and keep moving!

Check out this statue in the photo - the dude looks pretty pissed!

Casa do Samba

by AlexDJ about Maracanà

Maracanà is a lively Brazilian themed spot for swinging your hips, half restaurant half bar, after midnight it turns into a latin disco venue. A good time is guaranteed - whether you are sampling the specialities of the house such as "feijoada" or "churrasco con farofa", or enjoying the various live acts which are put on after dinner, such as the "capoeristi di Bahia" or the Luis Bocana dancers where the women are dressed up in bikinis and peacock feathers and men dressed as tribal dancers! Maracanà has great beers and excellent "cachaca" (sugar cane grappa) and its late hours make it perfect for night hawks. When you get tired, there's ample seating, a huge bar, and a big video screen showing anything from Caribbean beach scenes to soccer matches to rock videos. On the way in or out, make sure to pay homage to the re-created Amazon jungle courtyard complete with artificial creek and three very real not to mention loud peacocks.

Cozy atmosphere.

by alfa338 about Gusto Leo, and others.

I find it very handy to have one, two or three "restaurants" on every block... You can eat "on the run" in "Forno", you can have a table in the Trattoria's, Osteria's and Pizzeria's. Prices will be resonable and the cooking excellent. Many of these places has started with "Turist Menu" for your comfort - the Italian system can otherwise be quite confusing with aperetif, antipasti, primi piati, secondo piati, contorno, desert and pasta. Not to mention the habit to charge extra for table, for plates, for fork and knife, etc.. But I think they catched on to the modern times mostly. We never had to pay extra, but in some places they made a big deal of that they did not charge extra for this things..
Tips are included in prices. I was suprised that Lasanga al Forno could be so tasty... It even made red vine (Chianti of course) taste well. I normally don't like vine...
