Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.

My husband and I spent a week here and were very comfortable. Our room had a small balcony with table and two chairs with a view of the Duomo. The hotel also has other patio/outdoor areas to sit if the weather is nice. The room has gorgeous walls and ceilings with plaster

We had a nice visit to Florence staying in this hotel. The room was very nice and the staff was very accommodating. Only negatives were, the bed (like every other hotel we stayed in Italy) were two twin beds shoved together and not comfortable at all and the free breakfast was

And if you are headed for Florence, maybe you will not want to. Located about equidistance from the Duomo and the Academie, everything in old Florence is within walking distance. That means too, restaurants, gelotti and leather goods shops. Housed on the 2nd-5th floors of an
