Additional information regarding travel to Florence:
The "Autostrada Del Sole" Highway (A1) connects Florence both with southern and northern Italy. We suggest the exit "Firenze Sud" for those coming from Rome; "Firenze Nord" for those coming from Milan, Bologna, Venice.
Florence Santa Maria Novella (S.M.N.) station is on the major Italian North-South train route.High speed trains running between Milan and Rome stop in Florence. Eurocity and night trains connect directly Florence to several European cities (Paris, Geneve, Zurich, Wien, Munich,...)
Please consult the on-line FS timetable for update information on train departures and arrivals.
Florence (Amerigo Vespucci) airport is at Peretola, approximately 5 km West of Florence.
For international flights consider also the use of Pisa and Rome International airports.
Pisa (Galileo Galilei) airport is some 80 km West of Florence.
Rome inter-continental Fiumicino airport, served by all major airlines with flights from all over the world, is connected with a non-stop train every hour to the main Rome railway station (Termini), which is reached in half an hour. More often than every hour a high speed train leaves Rome Termini to Florence Santa Maria Novella, which is reached in about 100 minutes. Most of these trains require to be reserved in advance. Consult the FS web pages for connections and information.
Electricity in Italy, as in the rest of Europe, comes out of the wall socket at 220 volts alternating at a 50 cycles per second. In the US, electricity comes out of the wall socket at 110 volts, alternating at 60 cycles per second. Not only the voltages and frequencies, but the sockets themselves are different.
This plug adapter is all you need to convert the US rectangular pronged plug to the round prong Italian power plug used in most Italian homes and hotels. This adapter is ungrounded, which is why it doesn't have a third, center prong. This is fine for devices which are insulated (having a plastic body, for instance).
A Shengen Visa is valid for Italy
