Could be things were different back then...

I just went in January and didn't see any direct options either

2
You may be right, but I didn't feel it was worth the cost.

I hear that.

We didn't go in the tower, just stopped by to take pictures in front of it.

+1 to the hotel, as it's more centrally localed, but the place we stayed was quite nice and pretty convenient.

My wife had it up there rated right under the St regis bal Harbour. It's perfect walking distance to the whole Florence

They are showing a 9ish "direct" train that takes only 2 hours.

Oh then that's definitely a better option.
PS it's nice to go to the top of the leaning tower but if you don't your not missing much.
If you can splurge for the St regis Florence I would highly recommend

Need to change Itinerary cause of flights...
Traveling without kids and just hand luggage

Does this work?
Arrive Monday late afternoon VCE
Tuesday eve train to Florence
(Not sure what there i to do in Florence, as don't care for arts)
Wed late afternoon train to Pisa
Wed night train to Rome
All day Thursday Rome (Jewish Getto/Vatican/Coliseum
 Fri Early AM flight back to states

I would go to Pisa in the morning from Florence as you have to pass through Florence by train to get to Rome

6
Pisa is only 30 minutes from Florence so not really that far out of the way, the leaning building is famous so it's cool, Florence is just a bunch of boring museums so you only need 1/2 a day to see the Great Synagogue. #differentopinions

I believe Pisa is an hour by train

Whats the Deal With Bella Carne? - Re: glatt?

Also whats better:
Bella Carne, Ba'ghetto meaty or Little Tripoli for meat in rome? if you are having one meat dinner there - which would it be?

Also: based on my phone call an hour ago to Flour Farina E Cucina in Rome updated the wiki - If you have 1st hand experience please comment or update..... (the same info was on jewish europe but I have now clarified with the store personally.

Flour Farina E Cucina is a very cool Dairy restaurant:
Important note: All the cooked and baked goods are cholov Yisroel BUT the milk used for the coffee has a option of cholov stam (this is the only cholov stam item - they assured me) and you need to be careful to request cholov yisroel for the coffee/drinks - According to 2 people I spoke to at Flour (04/15/18) one of whom i spoke to in english, and then reconfirmed with another in hebrew.
Located outside the ghetto - Address is: Via Cremona, 29-37, 00161 Roma RM, Italy.
Open from 7am but ala carte options typically only available during specific hours. (though the Israeli person said they would likely happily prepare a la carte options anytime they are open as per request.
Re: breakfast he said that while typically their "breakfast is a croissant and a coffee" - not israeli style at all - they would happily make eggs salad etc upon request.

Little Tripoli is all glatt I believe, however the food is good but nothing great.
Bella Carne and baghetto both offer glatt meat at the restaurant I believe.
We went to Bella Carne and the food was excellent, fresh and great service.

Iv'e seen many times space on Qantas that doesn't show on BA, AS or AA.
It may be Phantom or it may match the Asia miles availability.
Ya i never went through and booked, but I wonder if they have more seats available

Can anyone help me? I've learned so much over the last 3 years from all the users here and Dan's Deals has truly contributed to my life! I made for a large portion of a trip to Australia in 2016, hotels in Iceland, airfare for family members, etc. Thank you!
 I am planning a trip to HKG, BKK, CNX & HKT this summer with my husband and 3 children. I redeemed chase ultimate points for coach seats (I know ...horror). I'm afraid i mistake here not truly maximizing a extraordinary amount of points, but that's done. I'm moving on to hotels and I've read through this post and searched SPG and Hyatt hotels.  It seems almost all hotels are set up for 3 people max and I'd have to get two rooms. With the rooms being so cheap, when do you all make the decision to just pay and save points vs redeeming?
I was hoping to do this trip almost for free, but it almost doesn't make sense.  10k or 12k for an SPG room costing $127 seems like a bad idea.

Any suggestions?
Most people want to get a value of at least 1.5, but usually 2.0 or higher when using points.  If You can make more off selling the points then most people prefer cash.

If you'll have access to the TK lounge I would do that, 6:30 is a long time in AMM, the lounge is pretty nice but it's a small airport and there isn't much to do.

I'm looking to fly out motzai Tisha bav July 22nd so quite limited with flight options.
I want to spend 2 days In dxb before flying to se Asia if possible.

The other option would be 2 book 2 revenue tickets and fly through Cyprus and hang out there for the day

13
You'll need to go through immigration and enter the country to do that, I doubt you'll have enough time.
Ok thx

14
I would either do TK for 17.5k AC or RJ for 17.5k BA.

The problem with Tk is flight time is longer and long layover.

Rj is good except it's a 6:30 hour stopover in AMM.

Is 50 min enough time to collect your bags in AMM and recheck from rj to ek?

15
Whats my best option from tlv-dxb with points?
I am looking to book on rj and ek as that would limit the stopover time to 50 minutes?
qantas would be 28k y, 54k j, 72k f.
Are there any cheaper options?
can RJ and Ek interline baggage is booked on separate tickets?
