Fourth Day

Florence
A fantastic city where, if you organise your timetable well, you can see the most important attractions in just one day.
The tour will start with something very important… where to park the car.
You can either stay a little further out of Florence, thus avoiding the city centre traffic, and park your car free of charge in Piazzale Michelangelo, or drive to the Railway Station, where there’s an underground carpark costing 3 euros per hour.
If you decide to park in Piazzale Michelangelo, you'll have to take the steps down towards the River Arno, from where it will take about 20 minutes to walk to Ponte Vecchio (Piazzale Michelangelo is also served by buses and taxis). If you’re interested in visiting the Museums, it’s a good idea to book your tickets to avoid spending time waiting in long queues.
The most interesting museums are: The Uffizi and the Academy Gallery. Obviously these aren't Florence's only museums, but they are definitely the ones envied by the rest of the World.
An attraction of considerable importance is the Cathedral with the dome by Brunelleschi... and of course the shops... which are probably of much less importance, but not as far as the majority of women are concerned.
Would you like to eat in Florence??? Let's start with three restaurants:
L’antico ristoro del Cambi, situated in the popular quarter of San Frediano (Via S. Onofrio 1R), is fairly well priced considering it’s in Florence; Ristorante Latini, Via dei Palchetti 61, is a historical restaurant in the centre of Florence, where you can enjoy an excellent Florentine T-bone Steak; the third restaurant, which is my personal favourite, is I 13 Gobbi, Via della Porcellana 9. Here you can really breathe in the atmosphere of the old restaurants of Florence and everything is meticulously cared for (watch out for the prices though).
Alternatively you could have a sandwich!!!! There’s an incredible place in Via dei Cimatori just off Piazza della Signoria, a tiny little Winebar. The counter serving the sandwiches and wine is practically on the edge of the pavement but the “panini” and “crostini” served here are the best in Florence, even if you do have to stand or sit on the pavement together with the numerous Florentines who come to eat these delicious sandwiches during their lunch break...
