Travel within Florence

I'll be in Florence for 5-6 hours. What is the best way to reach the Uffizi and/ or the Accademia from the train station? Thanks for your advice.

Will you be getting reservations? There's usually a big queue to get into the Uffizi (not sure about the Accademia, never been), and I'm not sure you'd really have enough time.

Anyway, to answer your question, I would walk, personally. Florence is a pretty small city and the Uffizi isn't far from the train station, really. There's probably a bus, but it would probably take you longer!

walk. You can't take the bus, it's a pedestrian area. You can map your walk on http://mappe.virgilio.it

We were there last May and loved Florence! Definitely phone ahead and make reservations for the Uffizi. The number can be found on the internet. Check florenceitaly.net? I would recommend walking. Map it all our first since your time is limited.
