    What's the best way to explore Florence?

    Florence is a beautiful city and is well worth just taking some time for yourself on the river front and just having a coffee. I was there in April and it was full of tourists so I can only imagine that June would be more packed. There are plenty of fake Davids around the city. The Ponte Vecchio is pretty cool and you don't have to line up. Piazzale Michelangelo and the Rose Garden have a nice view of the city. Some beautiful statues in the Boboli Gardens. Also some nice galleries in Pitti Palace below Boboli Gardens The problem is Firenze is pretty small and the good things to see have generally become touristy. So you will be amongst English speakers unless you find a hidden alley-way. Another thing you might want to do is actually get out of the town a bit. Try getting to the hills overlooking the city. Haven't done it myself but I would like to the next time I am there. over 10 years ago

    Which is/are the best diving centers in the Algarve? ;)

    Sorry that answer from Twitter was for another question. :S So I did a bit of research myself because no-one has answered this question yet. http://dive-time.net Not the best of websites. But it looks like these guys offer diving excursions for about €30 extra €30 for 2-tank dive off the shore extra €35 for 2-tank dive from a boat if you have your own gear it is only €15 for the boat dive extra €20 for a trip to Sagres to see wrecks and caves http://dive-time.net/index.php?/Book-Online/Dive-Time/Excursions/Diving-Excursions.html over 10 years ago
