|Subject: Re: Questions on Florence, Italy|
My advice is not to try to pack too much into less than three and a half hours in Firenze. It's a marvelous city and I am sure you, as a shopper, will find yourself distracted by the fabulous window displays wherever you turn.

The good news is that nearly everyone speaks English in this heavily touristed city, so there will always be someone there to help if you lose your way.
Florence is in nearly every Italy travelogue on our website.
