Okay, I am the BIGGEST DORK for not knowing this. I bought a bus ticket in Florence and didn’t know that you had to validate it in the little machine once you got on the bus. DUH!! I got a €50 fine to pay on the spot or the police. Thank goodness I had it, but it was all I had. Anyway, I didn’t speak Italian and thank God there was another American there who told me what the problem was.

Anyway, I was quite upset and it ruined my morning. Don’t let this happen to you! Validate your bus tickets PRONTO!
