Planning Our Stay In Florence

After spending a few days in Genoa with our friends we will take the bus to Florence.  Federico highly recommended Flixbus.  For a very minimal cost we can travel from Genoa to Florence for 10 E total for the two of us and in three hours.

We have booked an Air BnB.for Florence - here is a link to the residence we have booked for only $83 Canadian a night.  If you haven't tried an Air BnB I highly recommend it. It is so easy and much cheaper than most hotels.  Plus you can get the entire place and really mix with the locals.  We like to also buy a few breakfast items and save money by eating breakfast at home. If you are interested in trying it out click this link and you will get $30 off your first booking.

So back to the apartment.  We are there for three nights.  It is centrally located and we can easily walk there from the train/bus station and to most sites.  In fact it is only one block from the great restaurant we went to last year, so you can be sure we will be back.  

Our plans in Florence are rather loose.  We will pre book our Uffizi tickets for probably the Friday.  

We have also talked about visiting a few other museums and Bernie is really wanting to go to the Galileo Museum.

Last year we did a great walking tour but this year we are considering an organized walking tour.  

We have reserved our train tickets for the embarkation day and we will travel from Florence to Rome then Rome to Civitavecchia rather easily and very cost effective.  But I don't recommend this unless you can manage your luggage.
