Itinerary help

by neelv

I have a question regarding the itinerary i have planned for florence

Sunday in Florence- if weather holds up - planning to do the tuscany bike ride per tripadvisor recommendations.. www.tuscany-biketours.com
Spend the evening in Florence

Monday - Day trip to Siena/San Gimignano. Is this possible? The days are long these days so was wondering if this is possible or too much for one day.

Tuesday - Lucca

Wednesday - Pisa in the morning and then fly out late evening.

Does this sound reasonable? I thought I base myself in Florence, so that I don't have to carry luggage around every day.

thanks

I asume you also have days set aside (at least 2) to see Florence itself...or have been before? It is a wonderful Medieval city, with much to see and explore.

It is entirely possible to visit Siena and San Gim in one day. It is best to go by bus to Siena, as its railway station is some considerable distnace from the historical centre.

From Siena you can take a bus to Poggibonsi, and from there catch another bus upto San Gim.

Pisa and Lucca are easily accessible by train.

PS If you have not visited Florence before and have planned no days to explore it then I suggest you cut out Lucca and San Gim this time round. Pisa is easily pulled in on the way to the airport (assuming you are flying from Pisa), or in a morning.

I wonder if you are gong to spend some time in Florence - there is significant art, history, architecture and that deserves some time.

i think you may have to chose betweeen Siena/San Gim and Lucca/Pisa - both Siena and Lucca are two of italy's gems.

They always say you go so you can come back - but sometimes when you are there you realize that you cannot do everything you planned because you run out of time.

Travel Tips for Florence

PIAZZALE MICHELANGELO

I would...

by SirRichard

PIAZZALE MICHELANGELO

I would say this is the best place to have a complete view of all the city of Florence and surroundings. It is a wide terrace from where it is possible to admire one of the most superb views of the city nestling in the Arno valley, surrounded by gently sloping hills. In the centre of the square stands the Monuments to Michelangelo (1875) with a bronze reproduction of the four statues depicting Day, Night, Dawn and Dusk, dominated by the statue of David. On the hill behind Piazzale Michelangelo stands the Church of San Miniato al Monte.

Cocktails in Florence

by mariocibelli

Just a little hint about what to drink in a bar. The first giveaway that someone os a tourist is that they go onto a cafe or bar and order a glass of red wine (imagine the tsk-tsk noise of clucking chickens that people like to make when you are breaking the rules).

In Italy, generally you can drink anything in a bar BUT red wine, you consume it with a meal, not really on its own.

One of the best 'light' drinks to have at aperitivo is a prosecco or spumante, if you like the bubbles but have a sweet tooth than a Moscato might be for you. (For those of you in America over the age of 30, ever hear of Muscatel?)

Why are drinks so expensive in Italy? Italy is not a drinking culture (but the liquor and beer companies are trying to change that and fast) and thus people don't have multiple drinks, so the bar has to get it's money out of a client on 1 or 2 drinks. Also, people don't hang out all night in a bar (although this too is changing)...

Also, don't order complicated drinks, you will generally be disappointed, unless the place caters to that type of clientele. DOn't go into a seedy neighborhood cafe and ask the 90 yr old barman for a fuzzy nipple. (You might get one, but not the one you intended)

Another great town which is...

by josie13

Another great town which is often forgotten by tourists is San Gimagnano. Thirteen towers, built as a sign of wealth by rival noble families during the 12th and 13th centuries, dominant the ancient skyline. This medieval town is a great place to escape to for half a day.

by Gypsy_Saskia

The Irish pub sort of next to the cathedral is a cool place for a few pints. If you're a girl, prepare to be harassed by Italian men. They play a lot of Dave Matthews, which is not so common in Europe.
There is a little balcony with a few seats overlooking the square and Duomo. Very romantic.... Casual.

Take out to the nearby steps....

by LBKesner about Bar S. Firenze

Two of our student travelers, Butler and Josh L., pointed us to this place. One of the nice things about the restaurant/bar is that it's across the street from steps that make the perfect picnic seat and keep you from paying the "eat in" price. The food was good! The tortellini (spinach and cheese) was delicious! The margherita pizza was good, but a thinner crust would have made it even better. And, the desserts were irresistable, yummy, and well worth the extra calories.
