Located in a 14th century renaissance palace this hotel is full of character. Ideally location right next to the Ponte Vecchio I cannot say enough good things about this quaint 3 star hotel. The reception staff are a little bit sombre but the hotel is definitely worth the money particularly if you book a superior room.

Location was great. Center city. Staff informative. Room was a little better than average. Large by European standards but basically furnished.

Top Local Tips for Florence

slow down in Florence If you can figure out how to spend more time in Florence than the usual frenzied one-day museum whirl, do it. But then you have to give up the idea that you’ll see it “all,” and just be willing to become a local. Take long leisurely lunches and late dinners. Buy one of the little menu-navigator books and eat in restaurants that don’t have an English menu. In fact, if they have an English menu, refuse it - its much more fun to try and figure it out for yourself! And then order it even if you can't quite figure out exactly what it is - you'll probably be amazed. Best advice I've ever received about traveling in Tuscany? “Order the house wine.” Don't just power to the museums, stroll along the streets and turn down ones that look interesting; fold the map up and leave it in your pocket for the afternoon. Learn to navigate like a local - by where you are in relation to the Duomo. Stop looking at your watch and get a gelato. Walk. Be willing to stay in a two or three star hotel so you can walk everywhere. Hit the outdoor markets. Bargain. Don’t just hang in the doorway - step into that interesting little shop. Smile and greet the proprietor. Let yourself be shown things. Learn a few basic words of Italian and figure out how to communicate the rest. Smiles and hands and friendly appreciation and curiosity go a long way. Why would you want to travel to Italy and then confine yourself only to places where they speak English? Be a traveler and not a tourist. But go in late October or early November. Florence in July and August – with the heat and the crowds and the tour buses - is one of Dante’s circles of Hell. Any time someone tells me that they’ve been to Florence and weren’t impressed, I ask them what time of the year – and it was invariably in the summer.

Mercurio Tours Forgreat art + historical + museum walking tours, ask your hotel desk for info on Mercurio Tours. The groups are small and the guides are excellent - the 3 hour walking tour flew by.

Attractions We had 3 days in Florence, there is a huge amount to see and experience. Our one mistake was to make our first call the Uffizi. We spent 3 - 4 enjoyable hours there but we feel we couold have better spent time elsewhere, this attraction is big and well publicised but many of the smaller palazzos etc are in our opinion even better. Accademia was excellent, and a visit to Pitti Palace plus gardens a must!
