Often when we move abroad for a quite long period we have many doubts on what to carry, how moving, involving, who to contact in urgent necessity. For this reason here we have tried to write all the information necessary in order to pass the own vacation to Florence at the best, being avoided the most possible disadvantages that can happen.
We want note that Florence is one cities really calm, very various respect to the Rome and Milan; the city has an historical center not extended and is therefore much simple to visit it by foot. If you arrive in Florence by car is better if you leave it outside the center and take public transport; there are also many parkings in the historical center but the costs for one day is about 30 Euros. Therefore if you want you will be able to save these moneies and to 'invest' in eating in one typical bistecca fiorentina with one beautiful bottle of Chianti in one typical trattoria even with sight on one of most numerous monuments.
The inhabitants are cordial even if often they can seem to the eye of the tourist a not educates; its not true, by nature the fiorentini are rowdy and noisy, but they are truly accommodates and kind with the visitors.
