Just wondering the best way of getting to Florence from here? Drive or train?
It is not a good idea to drive into Florence: most of the centre is prohibited to visitors' cars but it is easy to drive into this area by accident and get hit with €100 fines months later. If you do drive, it is some 200 km on autostrada, which is hardly relaxing.
On the other hand, trains take 3 to 4 hours with a change at Pisa and, for some journeys, also at Rapallo.
It really is your choice.
For train times see http://trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html entering a date before June 12 when timetables change, and a date within the next seven days to see fares on journeys by Regional trains only (these fares are not posted any further in advance).
I strongly agree with Sydneynick's warning about driving into Florence.
Thanks guys, much appreciated -train it is!!
