Hi, Florence Forum people,
I have just started reading through your threads and excellent FAQs ( and two guide books) as my hubby and I are staying in the Palazzo dal Borgo hotel 11th - 15th May, which includes our 30th wedding anniversary. I usually start trip planning earlier than this, but life has been getting in the way...
This hotel popped up with a very good deal on TravelZoo, and as I have long wanted to visit Florence it was too good to ignore. The hotel description says 250m from the railway station, which I believe is also where the buses from Pisa stop. I need to find out more about trains/ buses from/ to Pisa airport for our flight times, but that is another subject.
The hotel address is Via della Scala 6, which looks like quite a long road on the map. We will be arriving in the late afternoon/ early evening I hope, with just small carry-on size pull along cases. UncleTomaso has said that the historic centre is tiny, N-S or E-W in 30 mins, so am I correct in assuming that our hotel will only be a few minutes walk from the station?
