Walking in Florence

by aostephen

Is it possible to get a walking map to visit the following places:
Piazelle Michaelangello;
Duomo/Baptistery/Campanile;
Ponte Vecchio;
Bargello area;
Pitti Palace.

Also, any bus runs among those places? How to get it (i.e bus line #; the name of bus stop to start)

Thanks

Florence is quite easy to walk around. You can see those selections in quite a short timeframe, though the Piti will be a bit of a walk. I did a walk from the Duomo, up the back streets that circle the Piti Palace to the Fort in about 3 hours, but I was taking my time to get photos. You can zoom in on a map of the city here http://members.virtualtourist.com/vt/gm/151105

Thanks. I have limited time for sightseeing. I think I need to take bus to get there.

Have you ever taken bus to Pitti Palace from Rome? If so, what is the bus route?

thanks

Re: Walking in Florence

No, I took the train from Rome to Florence and stayed outside of the walls up toward the Fort at a wonderful villa. The train would be my recommendation as it's faster (if I recall 1-1.5 hr). I like to walk so It wasn't an issue, but the buses are easy to figure out in florence. It's been a few years so I don't recall the numbers, but maps are readily available in town. One evening however take the bus to Fiersole for dinner. It's a great view overlooking Florence. I don't recall seeing a bus between the Duomo and Piti Palace.

All very walkable - you can go to the Dome (visible from everywhere in Florence, and begin your tour.

Go next to Palazzo Vecchio, and the Bargello is a short distance if you make a left. It is really worth visiting

Go back to the Palazzo Vecchio, make a left and go past the Uffizi straight to the the Ponte Vecchio - across the bridge and straight ahead is Pitti Palace.

A great walking tour - Rick Steves has a book on florence with diagrams that i saw many tourists in florence looking at on their tour - so no busses - all in all a great walk - you may want to add Oransmichele, and Santa Croce.

Do not forget about the statue of david in the accademia! Lots of treasures in Firenza!

Buona Fortuna!

Travel Tips for Florence

The Colors of Italy

by ExGuyParis

It is obvious why painters have always flocked to Italy. The colors are remarkable. Watching this city in sunlight, dawn, dusk, rain... it is ever-changing and always breathtaking. Wandering around... the beauty, the food, the people.

Perfect Coffee for next to Nothing

by mydreamquest

You have to check out Mercato Centrale for many reasons. Aside from the excellent types of fresh foods, I found the coffee there to be a steal! In San Francisco, for about $2 Euro, you'll be able to purchase a cup of coffee. In most places in the busy touristy parts of Firenze, a cup of coffee can be as much as $2-3 Euro as well.

However, here at Bar anna e Piero, whilst standing at the cafe bar I was able to purchase a cappucino and espresso for a miniscule $1.40 Euro!!! If you can hold on to your caffeine rush, begin your morning coffee drinks here. It was the best coffee price I found in Firenze and was the best tasting coffee in terms of "awakeness factor" and taste.

I am so sorry, but there is no...

by lvdpiet

I am so sorry, but there is no öf the beaten path'in Tuscany. Many tourists were going there before you and many will follow after you. The Italians will know how to show you everything worth wile to see, and that will be all there is to see. But it is so much! You 'll think to drawn in it. So take some time off once and a while. Go to the seeside and enjoy the warm water of the Meditaranian

laid back bar

by MStars about Mayday

This place is really laidback, so you can come here and have a drink and be able to talk with your friends w/o yelling.
Sometimes they have little art shows or performances.
But it's not very big, so it can get pretty full sometimes.
They have food too, but i've never ordered. none

POSH, expensive and arrogant......

by beumert about ROSSINI

Interior is beautiful, very comtemporary
location is dis-appointing: on the bank of the river but no option to actually see the river

Food is OK: not very special in taste or ingredients but a real nice presentation

Prices are extremely high, other places offer better food for less than 50% of the money you pay here (opening drinks: 10Euro, ONLY 2 courses: 60E per person)

service: I can not remember ever being treated so arrogantly as in this place, the staff made the whole experience a terrible one. The bread that accompanied the courses was really excellent, courses themselves not very special
