Hello, I'm going to be going to Florence in January and I will be staying there for 4 months with an art program. I'm a little apprehensive about it and was just looking for a little encouragement and advice--especially from any Italians. Plus I have some questions....(well really they are my fears articulated as such)... What is the weather like that time of year? Is English widely spoken (as of yet I don't know much Italian....)? What is a realistic monthly budget? What is student life like? Is it easy to navigate? What is public transportation like? Thank you!!!! Wanderlust
Hiya, I will be in Florence from the 14. until the 18. of december. What are the best areas for shopping? In italian cities the best shops are often located outside the city centre. What about any interesting street markets? Thanks for your help HORSCHECK :-)
Ciao, I would like to know if there are interesting sport events (football, ice hockey etc...) in Florence on the 7th or 8th of November??? Thanks, Bigs
I thought about visiting Firenze & Tuscany next week (Thurseday 31 Oct. to Sunday 3 Nov.). Any suggestions on 3- or 4- stars accomodation, either in the very city centre or in the countryside?
Hiya VT´ers, I´ll be in the area around Florence and Pisa from 14. to 18. of december. 1) I am looking for an affordable bed and breakfast or private guesthouse in Florence. Any recommendations are welcome! 2) What weather can I expect in mid december? 3) Any special recommendations about what to see or what to do except the normal stuff are welcome. 4) If someone else from VT is in the area at that time and interested to meet or to show me around feel free to contact me. Take care, HORSCHECK :o)
