I will be coming to town with my dragonboat team to attend the international festival in Florence on July 4 - 8. Unfortunately, our hotel (Gate Hotel) is further from the city center than we would like, and the festival is unable to provide us with transportation from our hotel to Cascine Park on Thursday and Friday. We have not had any luck finding a private service from whom to rent buses, so curious about public transportation from our hotel to the race venue. Is there a bus stop within walking distance from our hotel and will we be able to transport a team of 36 via bus? Is the train or a tram an option? Where can we find the schedules for the bus? The hotel says the bus stop is 800 meters away, but the stop that they mention is Prato, which appears to be further than that. Thanks so much!
