Top Answers To Florence Travel Questions
The lines aren't that bad, but I would prearrange for an online ticket just because you never know.
My gut tells me it's better to wait, too. You may save yourselves some headaches by getting tickets ahead of time, but bear in mind that Italy at the end of October is much quieter than in high summer so you should be fine getting into most attractions quite quickly. Plus, yes, you will pay a service fee by booking ahead, and you lock yourself out of that sense of spontaneity that makes vacations great! After all, if it's raining cats and dogs, why take a tour of the Tuscan countryside when you could hole up in a fascinating museum, historic site, or trattoria?
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.
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
