Florence in a Couple Days: The Travel Guide

Italy, Florence Guide (B): Florence in a Couple Days: The Travel Guide

About a month ago I shared some travel tips for the amazing city of Venice. I knew from the start that Italy was on the top of my list of places we HAD to visit on our sixteen day adventure through Europe, and it did not disappoint. The land of gelato, pasta, and art was not only breathtaking, but so full of culture. And Tuscany? Don't even get me started. After a bit of research and talking to others who had been, I knew that Florence was a must visit. So if you're heading there, planning to, or dreaming of it for now, here's all you need to know about travel, accommodations, and attractions in Florence. 

Like most other places in Europe, it is incredibly easy to get in and out of Florence by train. Because Florence is located in between Venice and Rome, it's a no brainer to make it a stop. Flying directly into Florence is very tricky, as there is one small single-runway airport called Peretola that only takes local flights from other areas in Europe. If you're flying in on a major airline, your only option is really Pisa's Aeroporto Galileo Galilei. From there, you'll have to take a train anyways, so I recommend starting elsewhere in Europe and then taking the train in. For us, it was only $24 a person to take the two hour train ride from Venice to Florence. When you're ready to head on, it's super easy to hop on a train from Venice to Rome, which has a lot more flight options back to the US. ......
