Important Words To Learn

Favorite thing: There are five important words to add to your Italian vocabulary.

Permesso- when you want to pass someone or through a crowd of people when you are on the bus and want to get off, for example, use the word permesso. Excuse me just doesn't work as I found out last night.

Scusa- use this word if you step on someone's foot or bump into them.

Conto- that is the bill you ask for in a restaurant.

Per favore- please

Grazie- thank you.

Bus Route Maps Maps of the Area Review

Favorite thing: You can get a very good bus route map called a REDE at the ATAF stand outside of the train station. There is also an ATAF stand at Piazza San Marco. I have found this map to be indispensable.

Internet Cafes

Favorite thing: There are lots of internet cafes in Florence, many of which are near the Mercato San Lorenzo. I used the Caironet. I found it to be pretty clean and convenient.

Locations are Via Faenza, 49r, Via De Ginori, 59r, and Via De Macci, 90r.

I dont know how the price compares to others.
