florence

by marialou

hi!i would like to ask if anybody know which is the cost to travell by train from florence to the port of ankona...

Re: florence

by gildapaolina

There are many trains in a day, it depends what time do you have to travel to Ancona; you might probably change in Bologna, and the cost would be about 38 euros for an Eurostar + an Intercity. If you want to see timetables and costs (and eventually buy the ticket online), see the italian rail site:
www.trenitalia.it/en/

Travel Tips for Florence

Wash and Dry

by jag17

Florence has several Wash and Dry (do it yourself) facilities to freshen up your laundry. 3 euros to wash and 3 euros to dry. I know you would rather be doing something else while visiting Florence; but we actually met several really nice travelers while waiting for our clothes to dry.

Value-added tax (IVA)

by keeweechic

There is a Value-added tax (IVA) imposed in Italy which is 12% on clothing, 19% on luxuries. Usually on other consumer goods (not necessarily services), the IVA has already been included in the price shown on the tag.. Visitors are able to get the tax refunded when you leave Italy. Just take the goods and the invoice to the customs office at the airport or any other point of departure and have the invoice stamped.

A non-EU resident can also obtain a refund of tax paid if a total of 300,000 lire is spent in one store (before tax). Don’t forget to carry your passport and ask the store for an invoice which itemizes the goods purchased, the price and the total of tax paid. Once you are back home, you can mail the stamped invoice to the store (within 90 days of the date of purchase), which will then forward the IVA rebate to you.

A large number of stores in Italy (and Europe) are members of the Tax-Free Shopping System, which speeds things up by providing an invoice which is actually a Tax-Free Cheque for the amount of the refund. Once it is stamped, it can be cashed at the Tax-Free Cash refund window which can be found at major airports and border crossings.

Leather, leather, and more leather!

by nyonnetti about San Lorenzo Market

We shopped in the San Lorenzo market for hours, bargaining over leather and jewelry like I never bargained before. The prices were very good considering we seen some of the same jewelry and purses in Venice for twice as much. I wish I would have gotten more, but now I know for the next time! Leather is everywhere and can be very pricey in the stores versus the outdoor market vendors. Either way it all looked great to me and I found some awesome wallets and purses for myself and my family. Jewelry is also plentiful, mainly murano glass and costume jewelry. They had a lot of scarves and neck ties available as well for very reasonable prices. Prices vary depending on the quality of the product. You could get leather coats for 500 Euro or 100 Euro. I found a cute leather purse for 24 Euro and wallets for 20 Euro each. The murano jewelry ranged from 5-15 euro each.

Saddle up...or just call a cab!

by LBKesner

If scooting around on a Vespa is not your thing, Florence is intrinsically walkable, and if you do need a lift, the taxi drivers are fabulous. When I needed a doctor on New Year’s day, 2002, our driver took us to the hospital, got out and knocked on doors until he found the area that was open on the holiday, and went in with us to explain my symptoms tin Italian to the nurse/receptionist. What service! Also, if you need a taxi and find yourself on a cab-less street, just pop into a hotel and ask a nice clerk or concierge to have one sent; you’ll get a little “reservation” ticket for your taxi. Efficient system.

Coffee

by Igraine about they are everywhere

Italian coffee, if its espresso, cappucino, ristretto whatever you prefer it all tastes great. Take a dolce too for a small bite. Sticky sweet but very good eating Espresso

The coffee bars little of center tend to be less expensive. Having coffee outside is more expensive then indoors standing at the bar. But after all the walking you do want to give your feet some rest.
