Nine fabulous days at Porcillino Gallery. To call this a B&B is a misnomer. If it was designated a hotel it would be rated 5 star. Five beautiful decorated rooms in the heart of Florence, with unsurpassed hospitality by the owner, Alessandra Biachini and her wonderful staff Aldo, Mark, and JR. What a delight to awaken to a full-walled photo of Ava Gardner in our newly remolded immaculate room, complete with every possible modern convenience, Frette linens, and a sparkling contemporary bathroom. Complimentary wine from Alessandra's Chianti vineyard, and hors d'oeurves served daily in the beautiful lobby-lounge. Five weeks traveling Italy, and this was our highlight. Our only regret is that it will likely be impossible to book in the future when the word gets around. We have just retuned home and miss it already. Oh, by the way, breakfast was delicious.
