    It's old, a tad run-down, and certainly not a Four Star place. The place sprawls, with long hallways and all kinds of nooks and crannies. It has not suffered much renovation, that is clear. Our room was a hike down long hallways on the same...More

    Duomo
    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
