I've just booked a ticket to Florence for Easter!

Jump to last reply

I've been working like a dog for the past 6 weeks - every weekend and 12-18 hours a day:(

So, I was on-line booking my ticket back to Dublin for this weekend, flying Thursday, for a long decadent weekend with the family. Then I started to explore other destinations from London City Airport. Florence stood out!

I been to Florence three times before, but have not visited in about 6 years. Easter is definitely not the best time to go, as it will probably be overflowing, but I have to fit the trip in between two full weeks on a project.

The prices were insane, and most seats were booked out completely for Friday and Monday! So, I decided to add a couple of days and fly on Wednesday afternoon, return on Tuesday evening. This costs £360, as opposed to about £700 plus, if I flew Friday and returned Monday.

Now I am looking for hotels. OMG, as expected, they are outrageous for that weekend. I doubt I will get out for less than £1500 for a regular 4-star. If you have any suggestions for lovely, centrally located B&Bs I would be interested, but have to assume most will be booked by now.

Insane moment that is going to cost me a whole load of money, but I am happy :)

I have ordered my travel books, which will arrive tomorrow. In the meantime, please give me some suggestions for day-trips from Florence.

Best Ger
