Florence to Palermo.......

by lengleng

What's the best way to get to Palermo from Florence or is it better to get to Palermo from Rome?I can do either.Are the flights expensive?Thnak you in advance :)

Re: Florence to Palermo.......

Have a look at for flights. I don't think they are especially cheap, but you might be lucky (and the earlier you book the cheaper fares are likely to be). You'll need to fly to Pisa then take bus r train (about an hour) into Florence (easy journey). One-way fare for 8/8 is from around 110 euros.

Otherwise you could take the train.
will give you times and fares in English. It is very long journey (13+ hours): it would be better to break it up with a couple of days somewhere half-way.

A more comfortable (though no shorter, time-wise) alternative might be to get the ferry to somewhere (e.g. Tirrenhia [for Naples] 8 hours, Civitavecchia [for Rome] 12 hours)and then get the train onwards (maybe after an overnight stay).

Ferry operators:
and for Salerno.

A way to reach Palermo could be the train but is a long ride for lengh and schedule. Try also to check ryan air from Pisa. Second option try (From Florence).. Alitalia is expensive

Ryanair do fly Pisa>Palermo, but you should be aware of their small hold baggage allowance (15kg maximum): their excess baggage charges are very high.

It is always much cheaper to book flights with budget carriers well in advance of your travel date (6-8 weeks at least). Be aware also of strict check-in times: a minute or two late for check-in and you will lose your flight, with no refund.

Travel Tips for Florence

Just outside the Palazzo...

by PartyRambo

Just outside the Palazzo Vecchio, next to the Uffizi gallery, runs the Via dei Leoni, named after the lions housed in this street - mascots of the Medicis, they were previously housed in the Piazza della Signoria, but Cosimo I didn't like the smell & moved the stables here.
The photo shows the street from the Palazza Vechhio.

Wheels and cobblestones do not mix!

by kcochran111

DO NOT think that luggage with wheels (made so popular in the last couple years) will make your travels through Italy easier. Not only do these suitcases not fit on trains, they also do not roll evenly on cobblestone. Save yourself the trouble and embarrassment and buy a backpack! Comfortable walking shoes A quality camera, especially one with panoramic or good zoom capability. Don't worry about an umbrella. You can buy one for a couple euro on every street corner!

San Lorenzo for Shopping

by mspetter about Leather

Visit the San Lorenzo piazza for amazing shopping! Practice your negotiating skills, and be prepared to visit multiple shops for the best deal. Leather - Bought two beautiful jackets.
Candy - Our family loved the dolci di Firenze!
Gold - Always a classic - Visit the shops on the Ponte Vecchio. Prices vary, but you may be able to negotiate.

Santa Maria Novella Train Station

by Sonador3

I love this station. It's very convenient to the center of the city, both by walking and by city bus. They have automated ticketing machines that are super-easy to use, and there are plenty of places to get a drink or bite to eat while waiting for your train. Travelling by train is easy thanks to stations like this.

Best Place for Pizza

by ginevra_ about Il Pizzaiuolo

Simply put - this is the best pizzeria in Florence. It's entirely run by Napolitans, and you can tell! The ambience is relaxed and full of character. This place is packed every night of the week so reservations are recommended, but they also do take out. Short of a trip to Campania, it doesn't get better than this! Ask for the buffalo mozzarella (mozzarella di buffala) on your pizza!
