Venice to Florence OR Rome to Florence????

I will be visiting Venice for 3 days firsts, then another 3 days in Rome next month. Will it be better for me to visit Florence from Venice or from Rome??? Which one is closer? I will be taking the train. Thanks!

1. Re: Venice to Florence OR Rome to Florence????

Florence is closer to Rome - one and a half hours by Eurostar as opposed to over two and a half by Eurostar from Venice.

Having said that, I have to say that a day trip to Florence won't give you very much. You need at least to stay one night in Florence, in my opinion.

Whatever you do - don't plan your trip on a Monday since all major museums are closed on Mondays. And if you are planning to visit either the Uffizi or the Accademia (you can't do both in one day and enjoy them) then by all means reserve your tickets in advance.

Anyways - enjoy!!
