    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?

    Take the train. The European train system is fantastic. Consult Rick Steves guides for best information.

    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.
