Our 10 day trip to Italy started with a night in Florence at B&B Bel Duomo. The staff / owner (Olivia and Mandy) were very friendly and helpful and helped us get orientated very quickly. They also did little other things to make our trip that much easier - make a phone call for us, keep our bags on our last day whilst we were out sightseeing and charge our phones in the lobby. The room was big and clean and had air-conditioning (crucial in the middle of summer!). The biggest plus of B&B Bel Duomo is that it is literally a stone's throw from the Duomo, with the rest of the major attractions in Florence a very short walk away. We had a separate bedroom and bathroom - which we were told about, and meant the room was cheaper. Unfortunately the lobby separated the two, which was fine most of the time, but not ideal if guests / staff were around.
