hi travel pros!
i have never visited italy and am not preparing for my first trip. so please pardon my ignorance!
i am flying into milan and want to take the most convenient route into florence where we're staying for two weeks. the airport is closed during april, so i am thinking about a train. however, it appears that once we land in milan, the closest train station is almost an hour away. is this true? and then we have to change trains to get into florence?
is there anyone out there who knows a smarter solution?
