I'm planning on visiting the Pitti Palace Boboli Gardens and Santo Spirito Church after spending the morning in Pisa. Since we're already south of the Arno, how long of a walk and how difficult from the Pitti Palace or Santo Spirito to Piazza Michelangelo and San Miniato? If we wanted to catch bus #12 or 13 to the Piazza, does it stop near either location or would we have to go all the way back to the train station to catch it? How often do buses depart from the Piazza? Are there any good, reasonably priced restaurants south of the Arno?
Are all of the above sites worth seeing? What about the Porcelain Museum and Grand Ducal Treasures that are included in the admission price to the Boboli Gardens? Does anyone know the opening hours for the churches, etc? Every guidebook I look at is completely different. **We're leaving for Italy in one week so I need your answers asap! Thanks a lot.
