Advanced txt for Museums

by K-nalla

Good day,
I will be travelling thru Toscana mid Sept 2008. How far ahead should I buy txt for the Accademia and the Uffizi? are they necessary as is in Milano for Sta Maria delle Grazie? I wont have exact arrival dates which makes me uneasy about purchasing txts ahead of time...
Grazie
Luis

Yes, it's better to bok in advance. You can do it by ohone and they will charge you 3 € (at least in Sep '08). Once you know the dates, do it or you can ask your hotel in Florence to do it; I asked them, and they did it (they didn't charge me anything).

the reservation fee is now 4 euros for both the Uffizi and Accademia. you don't need to pay in advance - call the musuem and give them a date and time of visit and they will give you a reservatino code. You pay when you pick up the tickets.

Travel Tips for Florence

Streets - finding yourself back

by dvideira

If your sense of direction was defied by the tiny streets, don't worry...

Suddenly, like a vision, the Dome appears at the end of the street, and you find yourself again well knowing where you are...

Packing List

by Amiga

It is very hot in the summer. An afternoon siesta helps with this. Dress accordingly, but remember you are not at the beach and the Italians always look elegant. Woman most cover their shoulders to enter churches. Wear comfortable sandals. Florence is above all a city designed for walking. There are mosquitos on Florence and the windows of the piazza's do not have screens. You can buy mosquito coils or a special little electric machines in the local hardware stores or you could simply use DEET.

If Jewelry is your thing - Ponte Vecchio

by MatthewMetcalfe about Ponte Vecchio

The Ponte Vecchio is a bridge loaded with shops. It's a landmark of Florence and there have been shops and homes here for hundreds of years.

The Shops looked to be predominantly Jewelry although there were some gift shops as well. There are also shops on each side. Some that lead up to the Uffuzi on the city side and to the Palace on the other side. Although it looked heavily weighted towards jewelry, I was able to get some other gifts at one of the shops. It's a great place to buy a special piece of jewelry as you'll remember the location as well. You can spend all the money in your wallet and then some. Most places take plastic. It's not inexpensive.

Rent a small car

by guell

You don't really need a car in Florence, but if you decide to get one, I'd recommend renting a small one. It'll be much easier to find parking spaces. Now, the car in the picture might be the extreme, but we did see several locals driving these buggies around.

not the best there

by PALLINA about Osteria del Cinghiale Bianco

This White Wildboar guesthouse could be a great spot for local cuisine. Just on the other side of the river (called "Oltrarno"), the location is great. As almost every restaurant in Florence, tables are vere closed and extremely small (never small as in Paris). First of all, they did not have our reservation (my husband called 3 weeks before, as it was Valentine day, unfortunately) so we got a table, but in a very unconfortable position. We asked for suggestions and the waiter reapeted all the courses of the menu. Oh Thanks, but I can read by myself!!! I asked for a very rare steak and it was medium-well done, in my opinion. The wine was good, but extremely overpriced. My husband complained about my steak, so we got the desserts for free (there were superb). In a word: if you are starving and too tired to keep on walking, this is ok. But if you want a memorable place to eat out in Florece, forget it.
