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 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.

Davanzati Hotel was very clean and updated. We appreciated being able to open up the windows and hear the street sounds (including when the bars closed early in the morning). And there really is about 25 steps from the street level up a narrow staircase, and that’s just to the

We found this great hotel in Florence, walking distance from the train station. It was close to all the major attractions, including Piazza della Repubblica. The pedestrian mall with shops and restaurants was steps away. As well, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. The

When we booked two nights at Hotel Davanzati they did warn us there were lots of stairs (26) to get to the lobby and they weren't kidding. But once we were at the lobby, we saw we made the right choice of hotels. We were given a very nice, fairly large room with great amenities.

The hotel is a flight up from street level. I recall a wheelchair on our floor, it’s possible that if you ring the bell, someone might be able to assist with that. Better to ask hotel directly, they are very very nice! Good luck!

Unfortunately Florence is always full of tourists but October is a much better month than in the summer. Because many colleges have study abroad programs based in Florence, there is a steady influx of college aged people.. You should book tickets now for the Uffizi and the Accademia if you are planning to see either one. Print the confirmation and take it with you to exchange for tickets at the location or the Davanzati will do it for you if you ask and the confirmation will be on the ipad they provide for you.

Best suggestion would be to call the hotel directly because in Europe they are a little particular about the number of people in a room. Our room in Davanzati was huge and easily accomodated 4 of us. But my kids are only 9 and 6. The hotel is in the heart of the city so the outside view is nothing to talk about much.

"we liked being on the first floor of the hotel--3rd floor of the building same floor as breakfast, Tea time and Happy Hour"
