Top Answers To Florence Travel Questions
Mary Ann answered:Florence is about 200 miles from Venice. I would suggest taking a train from Venice to Florence. Depending on the time of day, it will take more or less 2 hours and cost between $60 (economy) and $85 (comfort). The hotel is about a 20 minute walk from the station or reachable by a 5 minute taxi ride. The other option is to rent a car in Venice and drive to Florence. It is a beautiful drive and involves mostly super highway. BUT, driving in Italy is not for the feint of heart and, at some time, you will need to leave the highway and navigate the streets of the city.
If you'd prefer not to wait in line, it may be best to buy tickets in advance. For more information: http://bit.ly/avThIM
Hi BGJ66 I'm Deborah from Tuscany. The best choice is hire a driver, during the tour you will see many beautiful places. Lungarno is near the center of Florence, few steps from Ponte Vecchio, one of the most famous sights of Florence. Ponte Vecchio can easily walk to the Uffizi, Signoria Square, the Duomo of Florence and Giotto's tower. A kiss from the Tuscan Sun! Enjoy
