Florence, Italy

We will be arriving in Florence on Monday, Sept. 10. We are very excited to finally visit Florence and have several questions. What are our options for getting to our hotel (near Piazza San Marco) from the airport? My wife and I will have one medium sized suitcase and a carry on. I can purchase a two day Hop On Hop Off before we leave, but if the price is the same I'd prefer to wait. Any price advantage in purchasing early?

The fixed taxi fare is €22 plus €1 for each bag handled. There is a supplement on Sundays,holidays and at night time.

I wouldn't bother with the Hop On Hop Off bus, it is far too big to the historic centre and only skirts round the city. The normal city busses are much cheaper - just remember to validate your ticket in the date/time machine on the bus. Otherwise, you could be in for a hefty fine.
