anyone been? any cop?
We also went to Venice and Rome, they were much better. Florence was too boring and full of art and shit for my adolescent self.
don't care if you judge me
sassed by thewarn twice in one day
...was good but expensive. Bit like a more manageable version of Rome. For any of the major attractions it's worth booking your tickets in advance otherwise you can spend hours queuing. HAs possibly the nicest football ground I've ever visited. art deco like a mofo.
Sienna and Pisa are short-ish train journeys away too.
lots to do and see. full of irritating ignorant americans though. very touristy.
Mt mate used to live over there and teach rich kids how to paint. He doesn't now though
Explore the back streets though, some cracking little family owned restaurants
and I don't mind touristy places in themselves, my favourite city is Barcelona. But it really does feel like people are trying to sell you tat the whole time. Expensive too. When I went there I spent several days there and then a couple in Pisa - while to all intents and purposes there's very little to do in Pisa, it was far more laid back and I had more fun there.
Do go though, just don't spend too long in the busy central bit.
