How to plan a day when travelling...


This travel episode is about ...

Being in Florence, Italy and planning my day out to get the most out of my time there and avoid the touristy areas at peak times.

How I plan my day when travelling:

Before I arrive at a destination or on the morning of my first day in a new place, I plan my day using the criteria below.

1) Write down all places I must not miss
2) Where they are on a map
3) When do they close? - if big tourist attraction do later in the day so its quitter
4) What do I want to do in the morning?
5) What food do I want to eat and must not miss
6) What type of transport do I need? Can I just walk or is it further out
