My husband, sister, and her husband all traveled to Italy this fall (October 2013). We had no reservations for anything (flight, hotel, car, train, etc!). So, everything we did was "on the fly". We were able to have some amazing food and got around Italy pretty well, but one of our favorite parts was staying at the Casa de Tintori in Florence. It was such a quaint little B&B. The owners and hosts Ricardo & Lavinia were so sweet and welcoming. They made our stay very enjoyable. Everything at this B&B was clean and well maintained. And it's an 800 year old building!! The bathrooms were updated and the rooms were very comfortable. And, I'm not exaggerating when I say that the cappachinos at this B&B were the best I had in Italy. They ground the coffee right there in their little kitchen and served up my cappachino HOT. You can't get hot coffee in Italy. :) Also, the location of this place is perfect. It's right on the river and there are a lot of great restaurants and piazzas close by. We truly enjoyed our Italian adventure and our stay at Casa de Tintori.
