If you are traveling with a rail pass... know that Italy has high speed trains you have to pay extra for, only the regional ones are covered with your pass...that go super slow. We accidentally got on a high speed train and half way to Florence were told we had to pay 35 Euro each... we lied and said we didn't have the money and asked if we could get off at the next stop... the conductor was nice and told us what regional train number to get to Florence. So we got off and waited about 20 mins for the slow train to get there. The country side was beautiful unfortunently I was so tired i missed a lot of it!
We stayed at a camp ground in florence overlooking the city. We stayed in a tent that had 2 cots, no lights.
