FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

How do I get from Florence Airport to the Rail Station?  It is about a twenty minute taxi ride or there are shuttle buses called "Vola In Bus". Florence is a small airport so it is easy to spot the bus at the entrance to the airport. One way bus tickets cost 6 euros.

If I go a day early where should I stay?   The rail station (Santa Maria Novella Station) is just a few minutes walk from the centre of Old Florence. There are many three and four star hotels within a few blocks of the station and from there you can easily walk into the historic part of the city. The Hotel Ariele is a good three star hotel and the Hotel Anglo-American is a nice four star hotel.

If I want to see the Uffizzi Gallery in Florence should I book in advance?  Yes. If you don't buy tickets in advance you will have to wait in a long line.  You can buy tickets from the gallery website for specific entry times.  If you want a guided tour of the gallery you can book this and other tours of Florence  through www.viator.com

What weather can I expect?  May and September are the best times for walking in Tuscany. Usually it is warm but not too hot with an average temperature of about 20C. Rain is possible but neither months are considered the rainy season,

What sort of people will be on the holidays?   Usually it is a mix of singles and couples aged 50+. Most will be Canadians but sometimes they are joined by people from other countries.

What if I am on a special diet?   If you tell us in advance when you book arrangements can be made to cater to most special diets such as gluten-free.
