Hi Lourdes -
thank you - so if we find accomm in any of these places we will be on the trainline?
You suggest Pratolino - but how would we get to the circuit? By taxi? Or is it near a train?

That hotel in Pontassieve is definitely practical - all the small towns that I mentioned are on the train line and the station is just blocks away so it is easy to use. Pratolino sits on a hill near a train station, you might actually need a short bus ride to get to the train stop. You can ask the lodging owners for info when you ask for availability, they can best tell you how you could move around on that weekend by public transportation.
Once in Borgo San Lorenzo, you can either try a taxi but better yet would be to just follow the crowds: there should be shuttles from the train station in Borgo to the race track which is right outside of Scarperia. The whole weekend is a big deal in the area so there will be lots of people and extra services to help people get around. Don't worry, you'll see everyone will be heading in the same direction that whole weekend. Everyone else avoids the area that weekend if they can help it!
p.s. the location of the hotel moderno seems to be just a few blocks south of the train station, definitely walkable distance from the station

We are attending the MotoGP on Sunday and are staying in the centre of Florence.
We have generall admission tickets - how early should we arrive at the track to ensure we dont miss any of the races? I see that it opens at 745am - should we arrive then or is that too early?
We shall be taking a train to Borgo San Lorenzo then the free shuttle bus

Welcome to our forum:-)
As you don’t want to miss any of the races, I suggest you get to the track at the opening time!
The Mugello race track will be incredibly crowded on Sunday, so it’s better you arrive early and get your seat.
The first race (125) will start at 11.00 am, but the warm ups will start from 8.40 am. The last race, the Moto GP, will then start at 2 pm.
The Moto GP is an extraordinary spectacle! The Mugello circuit is fantastic!
Enjoy the race!
Feel free to contact us again for any other question you may have!
Have a nice day!
Ciao from Florence
