We are planning on a trip to Rome and Florence for 7 days total. I've been to Rome and think we need 4 days to get the best experience, but that leaves 3 days for Florence. Is that enough? One of us want to see Florence above all cities in Italy (not me, I want to see Rome). Thanks!
We only have tomorrow afternoon (Oct. 21) and night in Florence before we fly out Saturday morning. I really want to see the statue David but I hear that the lines are always long unless you're on a tour. Will I be able to get into a tour that lasts just an hour or 2 if I don't get there until noon or shortly after tomorrow? What is the best way to set something up? (We do not have a phone here....)
We plan to stay in an Airbnb apartment in Pont Vecchio. I would really appreciate your help with this as I don't want to spend our limited time waiting in line to see the exhibit. Also, do you have any other things that are nearby that would be quick and easy to see?
Many thanks in advance!
We are considering a visit to Florence from December 26 to Jan 1. This wil not be our first visit, but the first time spending a full week there. Any suggestions for activities? Any special holiday events? Should the weather be good enough for touring?
How late at night does bus number 17 run from the city center? I need to get from there to a hostel at midnight

Hello, I would like to visit the Vasari Corridor and I see that there are several options available for booking a tour. Can anyone recommend one that would be the best?
I see that I will probably have to combine the tour with something else, that I might prefer to see on my own, but I understand that; I'm primarily asking for a recommendation of a reliable source, who might be able to give the most historically informative tour.
Looking for a nice, centrally, two to three star hotel in Florence that is close to many of the main attractions. Also interested in the best way to see many of the attractions, with 4 nights in Florence and one day devoted to a day trip in Lucca, via train. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My son will be traveling to Florence in June after graduation and would like to pick up a couple pieces of jewelry. I have searched the web for suggestions of the less touristy shops that he will not be taken advantage of for his youth. I have schooled him on the understanding of price and gold weight so he has a rough idea what to expect. I have found a few ships and would like your input if you have experience with the gold markets where he should visit for the best prices and hand made pieces. I have found these shops and reviews seem to be reputable any suggestion?
The Gold Corner
I appreciate any advice that you can give him as I want him to have a great experience!

My son and I were in Florence in 2007. I am sure we ate in a restaurant called Patikowsky. I cannot find an information about the restaurant. Is it closed, or am I spelling it wrong? Thank you, Craig
Hello. Can someone please help me. I have never used the bus in Italy before. I need to get from The Uffizi Gallery to Boboli Gardens. Also, what is the procedure once on the bus? Don't mean to sound ignorant, but this is new to me. Thank you in advance!
we will only have 3 nights in Tuscany. My husband really wants to stay in Florence, and I on the other hand want to experience the Chianti region (Castellina). I think I will give him overnighting in Florence because he seems very excited about that. I need suggestions:
We will arrive in Florence by train (coming from Venice) and can drop luggage at hotel and get started on sightseeing asap. I definitely want to visit Siena and would love to spend the last day touring some of the smaller villages in Chianti by car. We can rent a car for the day to tour Chianti and then drop off that night if possible. I don't mind hiring guides or purchasing tickets in advance for the more popular sites, so we can hopefully skip some of the long lines. I know this is a lot, but I don't want to give in for driving through those amazing villages in Chianti. I appreciate any advice.
I need to get from Pisa Airport to Florence - any suggestions?

In 2013 I enjoyed a performance of a duet on the upper floor of the Orsanmichele Museum. Very intimate, maybe 75 seats. I purchased my ticket at the stand at the corner of the church. Returning September 5-11, 2015 and would love to experience something similar. It was a highlight of my last trip. Any suggestions?
