Piccolo Principe Bed and Breakfast is an independent house located in one of the most prestigious areas of Florence: the city center - with the most important museums and monuments - can be reached in just 15 minutes walk and the Fortezza da Basso and Palazzo dei Congressi, the two major exhibitions and conferences centres, are only 10 minutes by bus.
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
This B&B is close to the centre of Florence (10-15 minutes walk), and far enough from the crowds.
We looked at similar options, hotels, other B&Bs and this was great value.
When we arrived, we weren't disappointed. Everything was as advertised, clean, and spacious.
