- We took FrecciaRossa train from Milano Centrale-St.Maria Novella train station you can find the schedule at www.trenitalia.com it took more or less 2,5 hours and 70-100 euro/person for round trip.
-You could also plan a trip to Pisa and Rome from Florence!
-Firenze is Florence, they're the same! So don't be fooled guys.
- I rent an apartment for 5 people from www.airbnb.com , if you prefer to stay in a hotel you could visit booking.com for more info. (p.s the best hotel in florence is four seasons hotel! but for a clean and affordable hotel i suggest C-Diplomat Hotels super comfy, clean + 2 minutes from the S.M.N train station)

-Shopping: There's Luisa Via Roma store in Florence(p.s you can ask for a taxi to Luisa via Roma OUTLET for free from the store, it's like a shuttle service basically), there's also a high end shopping street, but if you're a student like me visit the leather market in Mercato Nuovo.

What to do in Siena:
i only went there to the piazza but you can also go to the tower there!
we basically just get lost in Sienna and you should try their special pasta called Pici
You can taste 8 or more glasses of wine and they will also educate you on how to produce the wine etc. If you love wine then you should definitely book a tour.
Just google it or click here for an example of wine tour in tuscany.
