Options for Tuscany  (12 Answers)

We are spending 3 nights in Florence for museums, etc. Then thought if we travelled, by train to either Siena or Pisa & stayed for 3 nights, this would give us a good jumping off place for day trips to Chianti, Cinque Terre, & San Gmigianno. Then we could carry on to Rome. What would be your choice-Siena or Pisa? Thanks.

Day trip to Florence help!  (6 Answers)

Hi,

We are in Rome and going to Florence for a day trip tomorrow. Wondering if anyone can help me out.

We get there at 10am.

We have the uffizzi booked for 4pm and our ticket has sears reserved. What is this for? Can we enter earlier than our time?

We are planning on attending the duomo, the bridge (sorry spacing on the name at the moment), and the piazza della signoria (sp?). Do any of these places have a good place to eat lunch? And also for dinner will need to find a place. Just so we know when to do what things specifically.

Also, will there be a tourist information booth when we get off the train? Just have a couple travel questions.

Lastly our train is at 8pm. I'm now thinking this might have been too late. Is the SMN station safe around this time, and Florence in general? Should we take a taxi from dinner to the train station?

Thanks, and I appreciate any response!

Olive Wood Kitchen Utensils

I will be looking to pick up two separate sets/collections of olive wood kitchen utensils as gifts and do not wish to pay a fortune.
Do any of the Flea Markets offer them for sale and which Flea Markets would give me the best opportunities for finding them? Also, would this be the best and least expensive way to acquire them? I will also be in Rome and Milan for a number of days if one knows of greater savings that would be available in those areas. We are talking about collecting 6-10 utensils per set; mix/match and of a fairly good quality. What type of prices would we be talking about?
Any help or advice would be appreciated; in advance, Thank you

Best time to book travel to Florence, Italy?  (5 Answers)

My wife and I are planning to visit Florence in mid-May 2014. We have been watching airline fares from Atlanta, GA to Florence which have risen slightly in the last month. It is said the best time to book flight seats is 6 weeks in advance. I'm unsure about this stat for international flights. Thoughts?

Also, we plan to rent a villa, B&B, condo or apartment in the Florence area for our 2 week stay in Italy. This will be our "home base" for countryside excursions. There will be a 2-3 day trip via train to Rome. Accommodation recommendations??

Questions about Trenitalia tickets  (5 Answers)

My family and I will be in Italy 4 weeks from now, and we'd like to take the train starting from Venice to Florence then onward to Rome. I've checked the time tables and fares on the Trenitalia website but there doesn't seem to be a FAQ section. I have a few queries:

1. Are the fares online the same as those paid at the train stations?
2. If for example, I bought tickets online early enough to get a cheaper price but for some unavoidable reason we need to change the departure date/time, can the tickets I bought be exchanged? If so, can the change be done online? And will there be corresponding charges?

Thanks for any replies.
