This convent is very sweet, clean, and well taken care of. Although it is far from the center of Florence, it is in a very residential and safe neighborhood, surrounded by beautiful villas. A couple of bus lines can take you to the center of town. I felt a bit cramped in our very small room. The bed was so... More

Overall, I enjoyed my stay here very much! Great facilities and ambiance, and generally very comfortable. FEEL AND AMBIANCE: The convent is a gorgeous place, very majestic, with an aura of quiet and peace. For Catholics, you might be excited to know that there is a chapel with daily mass at 7:15am and that the Blessed Sacrament is always there... More

I adored staying at this convent on a two-day, one night trip to Florence and wished I could have stayed longer. I first heard about Le Suore from friends who come to Florence often, and all of their words of praise were spot on. The convent is set in a peaceful, leafy green neighborhood not far from the heart of... More

As part of a group of about 25 travelers, we stayed here two nights. Our room's windows opened out to the back and side courtyard, and behind them to a densely grown hillside. It was a welcome respite from all the motion and sounds of the city beyond the walls. In addition to the location and the neighborhood being so... More

The grounds are lovely and the room was a generous size and very clean. If you are a light sleeper I would recommend you request a room towards the back, not facing Viale Michelangelo as the traffic is constant. I like sleeping with the windows open for fresh air and tour buses start early. It was nice to come back... More

I stayed here during a business trip in December 2013. The house is a majestic villa from 18th. It is in a quiet area of the town (apparently an expensive part) on a height, not far from Piazale Michelangelo with great views on the city. There is a 30 min. walk to Piaza Duomo, mostly along the river. a taxi... More

I stayed in Florence so many times but this year I decided to stay here, especially because I was tight on the budget. I was quite amazed by overall stay. Nuns took care of everything and they always made sure that we are comfortable, they always greeted me with smile, the breakfast is continental and good to start your day.... More

We recently returned from a trip to Venice, Florence and Rome with our four daughters. In Venice and Rome, we stayed in beautiful 15th century apartments situated in the heart of downtown. Not being familiar with Florence and wanting to try something different, we decided to stay in a convent while there. Although the convent was very peaceful and pretty,... More

My husband and I spent a couple of nights in December at the convent while visiting Florence and would highly recommend it as a safe and unique place to stay. The sisters were very welcoming and friendly, but speak almost no English. We were, however, able to understand enough to get ideas across. The convent is a little out of... More

I stayed at this convent in Florence because I loved the idea of paying about 53 euros/night to enjoy Florence. Breakfast was included and was very generous including coffee with warm milk, rolls, butter, jam, cereal (with cold milk) and yogurt. It was always overseen by one of the sisters, who was very attentive about bringing you everything you needed.... More

Staying in Piazzale Michelangelo

Neighborhood Profile
Piazzale Michelangelo
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and breathtaking view of the entire city from above. During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides visitors with a serene space surrounded by the amazing landscape, better if accompanied by a fresh gelato from a local kiosk. During night, visitors will be dazzled by the warm lights of the capital of the Renaissance. Spend a second with the silent Romanesque beauty of the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte: the one that wishes good morning and good night to Florence!
