Florence -What's area is close to central attractions for 3-4 day stay.

Jump to last reply

I thought I had my whole itinerary planned - but I just had a wake-up call!

I was all set to finalize
NY(Sept1)-Venice for 7-day
Venice-Siena Region(3-wks stay working at vineyard)
Sienna - Rome (7-days)
Rome to Almalfi Coast - 7 days...with maybe a stay over in Naples flying out from there.
Naples-NYC

I really thought making day an overnight trips from the vineyard near Montepulciano to Florence and even Venice was do-able (along with Siena and some other towns)

But now that Fodor travelers were kind enough to explain how to navigate the train schedules, I discovered that the trip from Singlunga to Florence is 3-hours - so it seems, as long as passing thru and changing trains in Florence anyway on my way to Sinalunga - I should just cut my stay in Venice to 4 days, head north to Florence ad spend 3-4 days, and then on to Sinalunga - rather than backtrack.

That being said - Can anyone out there tell me if that sounds like a good plan?
If it is - I really use some advise about a what would be a GOOD CENTRALLY LOCATED ARE to book a B+B in Florence that's near the sites.

I'm clueless - and the map of Florence is making my head spin.

It took me a week to figure out that Venice is made up of islands, and final decide take a leap of faith and get ready to book a B+B in the Palazzo Moronini calle del Fontego - and hope that it is truly a 10- min walk to San Marco square.

My fear is, with only a few days in Venice and Florence I'll book a room in a neighborhood that not conveniently located and spend the little time I have on buses and trains.

ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD GREATLY BE APPRECIATED!
