A group of 6 of us stayed here for 3 nights in early October, before going on to Siena. The rooms were all immaculate. Linda our host, greeted us with a chilled bottle of wine, and made us all very welcome. The building itself has loads of character - part of it is an old tower from the middle ages,... More

We stayed here for a few nights and found the accommodation excellent and very romantic. The room was lovely and it opened out onto a beautiful little courtyard where we could have breakfast. The guesthouse is situated a little way outside of Florence, which would be a downside if you really wanted to be in the heart of things, but... More

I took my wife to Florence for her 40th Birthday and we spent three nights at Al Canto, just outside of the centre of Florence (a 15-20 min bus ride). This in itself was an advantage for us, as it was quieter and less touristy than the city centre. We visited in late August when it was hot, and our... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this fabulous B&B on 19th and 20th June. We found this place through a Groupon deal. It's a 15 minute bus ride from the centre of Florence but the area is a beautiful oasis with lots of character and a few lovely pizzarias nearby. The B&B itself has tonnes of character and elegance and... More

It really is difficult to compliment this place without gushing. But I may have to gush - apologies in advance. We had a tour around the rooms by the family who run the place and all of them are beautiful. Spacious, understated, but designed with the sort of attention to detail that makes a good accommodation first class (the shower... More

My husband and I stayed here on a Groupon we purchased on a whim. I'd never been to Italy before and was looking forward to taking in some art and beautiful architecture in Florence and was pleased to read here on Tripadvisor that the owner of the Al Canto was an art historian! She gave us some great recommendations for... More

Booked for 2 nights, loved it so much, stayed for 4! A very beautifully restored villa with it's history intact and on show (as you'd expect from an art historian) and with a large courtyard to relax in, and room for the kids to play, we couldn't have picked better for our stay in Florence. Although the bus is very... More

We arrived in Florence at the start of a short period of fairly high temperatures - between 34 and 38 degrees - which lasted throughout our three night stay. After a day of walking in the city, Al Canto was the perfect oasis to which to return. We would not have enjoyed a location in the city itself - at... More
