I spent six nights at the B&B La Gradiva, and it was perfectly fine. The room and bathroom were spacious and clean. Breakfast was plentiful: cheese, bread, croissants, sweet rolls and coffee, all served with a smile by Lucky. You cannot beat the location of La Gradiva - literally less than a block off the Ponte Vecchio on the Oltrarno... More

I have just stayed for 5 nights at this lovely B&B. Private courtyard, bedroom balcony, full use of the kitchen, beautiful meats and cheeses for breakfast, ensuite and spotlessly clean. This is perfect for visiting Florence; situated just along from the end of the beautiful Ponte Vecchio!

My husband and I stayed at La Gradiva for three nights in October 2014. While we loved the location, the size of the room and the balcony, the service was lacking. Our experience was not as pleasant as other reviewers. We found the building easily enough, but once we got there we couldn't get in. I had emailed Ricardo with... More

Sleeping in a hotel is so last year. A bed and breakfast on the other hand is a lot more personal. We went to Italy and stayed in B&B La Gradiva. Something we didn't regret! Read this review and maybe you'll find yourself there soon. At the heart of Florence, B&B La Gradiva is the perfect location if you're planning... More

We jus sayed at La Gradiva (family with 9 year old) and we must say it is a lovey, lovely place. The location is super, basically about 50 m from the end of Ponte Vecchio. The room we were in was large, with a balcony overlooking the street (but no issue with noise). What made our stay very special indeed... More

The best breakfast I have ever had at an Italian hotel (which includes 4* and 5* hotels in Rome and Amalfi) Riccardo amazingly friendly and helpful, great stories and lovely to chat to. The girl who covers his days off is lovely as well. The location is superb, about 100 yards from Ponte Vecchio, great restaurants on the Via San... More

Assuming you are reading this review because you are looking for well-priced accommodation in an excellent location in Florence then you are looking in the right place. The La Gradiva is a small guest-house where there is a chance to sample Italian hospitality in a location that is ideally placed to explore the city. It is just a few paces... More

Staying in Pitti

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
