clothing

by dojm

what type of clothing is recommended for touring or dining in Florence for mid summer; days? evenings?

Re: clothing

by Ina08

Touring:
Comfortable shoes, sunglasses, hat and light cotton clothes. No problems with flip-flops, shorts and sleeveless shirts, Italians will be dressed in similar fashion

Dinner:
Casual, light dress/pants/shirt/blouse/top. You will see Italians wearing a light cardigan over the shoulders sometimes. Shoes: sandals, light mocassins

Re: clothing

If you are planning to go into a church you must wear appropriate clothing, that is you must have your arms covered and no shorts or mini skirts. Otherwise, I would say to dress as comfortably as possible, be prepared for really hot weather and some rain--you can buy an umbrella on the street, and don't worry about dressing like Italians, you can't. Only if you are planning to go to a posh restaurant will you need something dressy.

Re: clothing

by Ina08

I am not sure where the dictate to cover one's arms comes from. The churches I have visited and know of, do not make an issue about naked arms; as a matter of fact, in summer you will see many churchgoers with sleeveless outfits - no airconditioning in Italian churches :-)

However, it might be a good idea to avoid bare bellies and too short shorts, and in case of doubt, take a sarong with you to use as a shawl.

Evidently that has changed since I lived there. Good to know because in the summer it's hot as blazes there and even at my age, I sometimes go sleeveless,but never shorts or minis though. That wouldn't be a pretty site.

Travel Tips for Florence

Giordano di Boboli

by sphynxxs

Sitting in a garden cafe in the giordano di Boboli just beneath the fortezza, enjoying my espresso as much as the view of the skyline of Florence and thwe surrounding Tuscany hills on a sunny day in March. Having the feeling, that in this very moment everything seems right and perfect in the world

When in Rome (or Firenze), do as the Romans do

by Bunsch

I must have led a charmed life up to this particular venture to Italy, because in all the other countries I visited, English was either one of the standard languages or, in the case of France, I spoke the ambient tongue. I suppose I expected that many, if not most, of the hoteliers and shop keepers and transport personnel in Italy would speak at least a modicum of English. I didn't invest in a phrase-book (although it turned out my companion had brought one along). What arrogance! I have only myself to blame for the multiple times when language barriers led to absurd or disappointing results. (It is hard to ask for directions when you can't articulate where you want to go -- and can't understand when someone tries to help out.)

Probably no one reading this tip would make such a foolish mistake, but just in case...either learn enough Italian to get by, or keep a phrase-book or English-Italian dictionary close at hand. I promise you'll have a more enjoyable visit.

(And as one VT'er says in a very funny motto which I will badly paraphrase, speaking English slowly and very loudly does NOT make it more comprehensible!)

The stairs to Piazzale Michelangelo.

by tompt

When walking up the stairs to Piazzalle Michelangelo. Do look back ! There are some great views of Florence.
At the right side of these steps we found a catcolony. The pic is at the local customs tips.
There was a sign ( in Italian ) telling us this was catcolony 3. But that is all we found out about it. If someone knows the exact story, please let us know.
The end of this hike can be found under general and must see tips, because the Piazella Michelangelo and San Miniato al Monte, are not exactly of the beathen path...

Chilling Out

by fgfi about Noir - Ex Capocaccia

This bar changed his name and setting a few monts ago. Now it is called Noir, because it is all black inside.
The owners are the same, so basically the description of the place doesn't change.

In summer everybody in Florence seem to flock to this hip & trendy bar that overlooks Lungarno Corsini and offers a beautiful view of the sunset on the Arno river. Especially on Sunday's evening, people coming back from the seaside gather here to drink and talk about the week-end. Nice place if you want to meet locals. Smart casual

Italian Restaurants - The locals

by ophiro about Italian Restaurants - The locals

Try to find small and local restaurants not the TOURIST restaurants.

Where you can find local people is the best place because local people always know what is best and not a tourist trap !
