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!

Elegant old fashioned with fantastic views of Florence and the Douma. Great service downstairs and enjoyed breakfast and dinner. On the negative side the bath/shower in room 202 is extremely dangerous with a very small bathroom and boxed in bath/shower requiring a huge high and

Dear smw481, many thanks for your review and for your compliments to the food we served for breakfast and dinner. All our rooms come with a Jacuzzi bathtub, we are sorry you did not appreciate this pamper, that is one of our signature services. To offer an extra service we added a hook for the shower just in case a guest needs a quick wash before rushing out for the day. Electric sockets in Italy must have three pins but we have converters at the Reception, always available for free if our guests ask for. We regret for the English channels and thanks for advising, we have sent our technician to double check and now BBC world can be watched again. Unfortunately sometimes channels do not stay tuned, had we known we would have fixed it during your stay. We hope we will welcome you soon again and remain sincerely Antonio Diondiego, Manager

"We stayed at a deluxe suite"
"Try to stay in the main villa building, 2nd floor ideal."
"There is only 1 twin bedded room so despite requesting twin room had double bed so we needed camp bed"
"Ask the hotel for a view of the city"
"Ask for a room with a terrace. Although not essential as there are plenty of quiet areas to sit."
