    It seems like a nightmare. But tickets at the machines! Get a Firenze pass next to church on right hand side for quick and easier access to museums and sites it's worth if it u are going to go around!

    The screen will show the final destination of your train - not each stop in between. I ur on Trenitalia then look at the screens that scroll that show you each stop to make sure ur on the right train!

    Ask Trenitalia staff to help with the purchasing of train tickets if you want to, especially using cash. They are so helpful.

    Tons of convenient stores, and a good taxi lineup as well as convenient bus access. Takes you right into the center of Florence.

    The farmacia at the station is the best in town as all the workers speak good English and offer you generics (something the more centrally located famachi tend not to offer to you).

    The station is used by 59 million people every year and is one of the busiest in Italy. Very good the service with Train by Freccia Rossa to Milan, Rome, Venice, Naples and Bologna.

    Unlike the Rome Train station, those wanting to grab last minute souvenirs will be disappointed. Get all shopping done in city.

    Don't try to buy your ticket at a machine last minute unless you have a pin for your credit card! Take the bus out front. Same price as train and you have an attendant to buy ticket & AC on the Bus!

    If you don't need to take all your luggage with you, leave it at the luggage deposit on platform 16. It's cheap and safe - and lets you move around more easily.

    Be sure to validate your ticket before boarding the train if you don't have a seat reserved. Fees will be charged for failing to do so.

    You only need to collect your tickets 15 min before your train departs- if you've already booked online that is!!!

    Beware of swindlers helping you to carry luggage on the train and then ask you for money after their 'service'.

    Be sure to validate your train ticket before boarding as the "inspectors" try to con you of "additional fines" when you're on board. Very bad allocation of vital information, rude and racist staff.
