This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel.

Guess what? Florence is also named and spelled Firenze - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.
 The Duomo.

Florence is a very walkable city -- the main attractions in Florence are located along the two sides of the river and you can walk from one attraction to another easily.

There are lots of hostels in Florence. If you can, try to book a hostel located along the two sides of the river or the Florence S.M.N. railway station. Most attractions are located on the north side of the river, but as long as the Florence hostel that you have chosen is near the river, it is very convenient for you to visit the attractions. Booking a hostel near the railway station is a good choice if you need to arrive at Florence at night, as it would take you less time to get to the hostel. The hostels in Florence may not have a clear sign, so check the exact location of the hostel before your trip and even try to remember what it looks like from photos on the internet.

There is a market located at about fifteen minutes' walk from the railway station -- you can buy some food for cooking in the market. But do beware, because the market closes quite early. You can also find a few tiny supermarkets in the central part of Florence, but they are not nearly as cheap as those in Rome. There are lots of restaurants on the north side of Florence; those located near the Duomo tend to be more expensive than those located near the railway station.
