Things to do in Florence, Italy

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm going to Italy tonight for ten days. The last leg of our trip is Florence for a work conference the wife is attending. Looking for suggestions on things to do solo during the day while she's attending lectures and such.

There's another very recent "what to do in Florence" thread already.

How many days in Florence? It's pretty darn easy to entertain yourself there. A good day or overnight trip to spend outdoors is the Cinque Terre, which you'll find all sorts of info on. For food/drinks, I'd cross the river from the tourist zone. There are a few nice places on the hill side of the river. I had a nice time at Flet; friendly local service.

I'm going to be there 2 nights in Venice, 2 nights in Sienna, and 4 nights in Florence. The evenings in Florence will likely be occupied by having to do stuff with my wife's colleagues but the rest of the trip is open.

Purchase Uffizi tickets NOW, if you have any interest in visiting this museum.

Venice - wander and take up photography.

Sienna - one day in town, one day rental car trip to Lucca or Pisa / cinque terre.

Florence - Rest / recover, 2 days Florence, 1 day trip North of town to somewhere (Modena if you're a car guy or like olive oil and Balsamic Vinegar)

Are the Cinque Terre hiking trails repaired / recovered from the damage a few years ago?

I'm not sure. It such an wonderful way to spend a day, I really hope so. Internet says Spring 2014, but I imagine the vineyards may be need to be replanted.
