Florence: taxi or walk from station to hotel?

I also suggest you take a cab. You'll be tired, unsure of directions, lugging your bags over cobblestones on very narrow streets with cars coming at you, unreliable sidewalks, etc. It may be hot, too.
Taking a cab to and from airports and train stations is a luxury I always count on.

We just spent 10 days in Florence at Hotel Cascii which just happens to be about across the street (Via Cavour).

It is about a 15 minute walk. But, with luggage the added aggravation on not knowing exactly where you are I recommend a taxi. Via Cavour is a busy street both directions. Your hotel is 2 or 3 (blocks?) from the Duomo...a great location by the way. One street either way in either direction has some really good restaurants..ask hotel people where.

My understanding is the Europa is a family run hotel similar to the Cascii which we really really enjoyed.

Good luck, if I can help my email is [email protected]

Thanks all. Seems like saving my feet/enery for some more worthwhile sightseeing would be the prudent way to go!

We took a taxi- not far but was jetlagged and tired (and hot!) and I had a bit of luggage. I found it just easier to do... The rest of Florence we did by foot. It was very easy to navigate.. Have fun!
