Everyone has to go to Florence at least once and most people will
return again. There are so many exceptional things to see, it's
impossible to do the place justice in a single visit. But a day trip can
fulfill a number of chosen objectives. Seeing the entire collection in the
Uffizi not being a good one to choose! Entrance tickets for a specific
time of day can be bought on-line. Doing this in advance is absolutely
essential in the summer, as the queues for the main sights are unreal.
To do this, follow this link to the firenze.net site, the museum/gallery
section can be reached from the sidebar on the left of the firenze.net
Because it gets so crowded during the holiday season, driving to
Florence is not a good idea, as parking is a big problem and getting in
and out of the city wastes too much time. So, a stress-free alternative
from Mazzaforte is to drive to Terontola (not far from Cortona), park
the car and catch the train. There are two trains every hour. You'll
find a timetable at Mazzaforte, or online at Trenitalia.
Time from Mazzaforte: 120 minutes
Market day: Wednesday
