Talk about a view. I can't think of a better location in Florence. The Piazza della Signoria was awesome. We walked every including to the rail station. It was beautiful and safe. Our room a plenty of space for our family of 4. Great A/C. We would have stayed another day if we would have known.

We loved this delightful B and B. We were greeted by the friendliest staff (whose name I am ashamed to say I have forgotten). Our room was overlooking the piazza and was very comfortable in every way. The little kitchen was very efficiently laid out too. The position is terrific - right next to the Gucci Museum (some nice gifts... More

This B & B was in a perfect location for those on foot. Pretty much everything was in walking distance and although on a busy square there was no disruption due to noise. The apartment was more of a suite I would say as there was no separate sitting area, basically two bedrooms and a bathroom with basic tea/coffee facilities.... More

Perfect b&b close to the center of Florence less than 10 mins walk from the Duomo. Lovely square, location next to the Gucci Museum. Room good standard very good thought slightly old fashioned decor reminded me of a Swiss style chalet interior. Aircon in each room and excellent service and breakfast served by a lovely guy called Willy.

We are an older couple, so the steps from the entrance to reception with luggage were a bit of a problem. Otherwise the hotel is absolutely wonderful. The room and its facilities were very good and the view out onto the piazza brilliant. Hot water jug and tea were provided, but no coffee or milk, strange. The breakfast was exceptional,... More

My husband booked this place for my birthday trip away, it was lovely. Perfectly placed near all of the main tourist attractions. We stayed in a Suite, with a bedroom, lounge area, bathroom and kitchen area - this ended up being great as we started eating breakfast at 'home'. It was clean and well looked after, I'd definitely go stay... More

I don't think Casa del Garbo can be topped! We had a great time staying here. Friendly staff, comfortable beds, affordable price, right in the middle of everything! We stayed in the Cosimo I room, huge and looked recently remodeled and bathroom updated. Italian breakfast was great. Don't expect eggs and pancakes, here you get the real deal, fresh fruit,...

This is my third time to stay in La Casa del Garbo so you can expect this to be a good review. The location alone cannot be beat. A fantastic view of the Piazza della Signoria and Palazzo Vecchio right from your window (if you ask for a room facing them). The breakfast is satisfying and the staff is very... More

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
