Florence Practical Information
See the "Internet Access" listings on our Florence: Miscellaneous Links page. Also, some hotels have Internet terminals in their lobbies.
Our favorite printed map of central Florence is the Firenze 1:10,000 map from the Istituto Geographico DeAgostini's Pianta della Citta: Italia series, which is inexpensive and convenient to use. You can buy it in Florence bookshops and souvenir stores or from DeAgostini.it (Italian only).

Violent street crime isn't a major problem in Italy, but pickpockets and purse-snatchers can be a nuisance in busy tourist areas. Read our article on Crime in Europe for tips (including product suggestions) that will help you keep crooks at bay.
