Florence has many treasures and among them is the Residenza D' Azeglio, a delightful B & B located at Piazza D'zeglio, 41. I was in Florence for the month of May attending the Leonardo Da Vinci language school and the Residenza D'Azeglio was referred to me for consideration after having indicated that I was seeking a small B & B with requisite amenities and within a reasonable walking distance to the school. The facility had everything I was looking for: cleanliness, comfort, private bath, air conditioning, TV, wireless internet, and a "homey" atmosphere. Upon arrival, it was as if indeed I had discovered a treasure. The Residenza D'Azeglio offered everything I asked for - and more. You can imagine my surprise to learn that the Residenza was in a beautifully restored villa located in a tranquil residential area of Florence only a 15 - 20 minute walk to the school and the famed "Duomo" and Piazza Signoria. The facility was impeccably clean and secure with video surveillance and an electronic key and mechanized system for entry by way of the large "portone". My room was spacious and very comfortably appinted with period furniture. Moreover, the hosts, Riccardo and Michele, were very personable and attended to every possible need including laundry service. The able assistant, Nelli, attended to daily cleaning of the room and maintenance of the property. Breakfast was the traditional Italian breakfast with coffee or tea, bread, pastry, yogurt,cereal and sliced fruits. The Residenza D'Azeglio is thus a gem in the vast treasure chest of Florence and will be my choice when I return.
