The folks running this place are very friendly and helpful. Small B&B located on a square that has a market. It can get a bit noisy but if you close the windows you'll hardly hear it. Location is nearby all the great spots that are just a few blocks away.

The Porcellino Gallery is located directly adjacent to the Piazza Nuovo Mercado. There are dozens of restaurants within easy walking distance. All the major sites in Florence are also very close. We were greeted with a glass of white wine and our hosts continued to be very helpful. The breakfast in the lobby area was great.

This stylish B&B is beautifully decorated, the staff is very friendly and super nice, and the location is super central. The rooms face a beautiful leather market, the thing is that you will wake up at 6am with the sellers every morning (and forget an afternoon nap)! They've done a quite good job with the windows about soundproof but still... More

I traveled to Florence in September and stayed three nights at Porcellino Gallery. The location of the B&B itself was very central and near to many attractions but we struggled with the noise from the nearby plaza. My girlfriend and I are light sleepers and it was a major issue both late into the night and early in the morning.... More

We have stayed at least 6 times in Florence, and currently writing this from the Porcelain Gallery, I can happily say that this is the best. The location is perfectly situated for accessing all of the various sites which Florence has to offer, but at the same time the hotel feels wonderfully exclusive with around 6 rooms. Personally we did... More

This B&B is in an amazing location right near all the major sights in Florence. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the staff is lovely as well. The breakfast in the mornings is a great way to start the day before heading out to discover all the wonderful things Florence has to offer. Highly recommended!

If you're looking for something a bit different then Porcellino Gallery may be just the choice. Its location is fantastic, once you find the entrance behind the market stall caravan. Arriving by taxi from the train station was a huge plus and well worth the few extra euros to have the car drop you at the exact spot. You must... More

We tried to find the hotel walking from the train station using Google Maps and I would STRONGLY not recommend this. We walked in circles for at least 10 minutes (thanks Google!) before we finally noticed the very small, discreet sign for Porcellino Gallery.

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.
