Not sure if it was too much walking yesterday or too much excitement from the bike races, but neither of us slept well last night. We went out in search of new streets and then had lunch at a place where we were the only English speakers! It was very good but filling... We napped a ...
... surrounded by all these different statues, where we stopped to take lots of photos and wander around. Lots of people were crowded around the David replica. Rob and his ball and chain decided they would head home for a rest, while Holiday and I continued on to the Basilica. It was a very impressive and beautiful building, I think it would have to be the one of the largest churches I have ever seen. All the churches that we have come across ...
... not lived so deeply and freely in my life. Picture yourself turning your soul inside out so it sits on your skin instead of deep inside. Picture carrying your heart, not on your sleeve, but in your hands, cradled in your palms, open to the elements. This is the Italy I see. This is my experience. These are the moments I am in. As I move away from two weeks of intensity, it will be ...
... own stuff, but $5000.00 for a leather jacket would have stretched the budget to much.
We then travelled to Pisa where the leaning tower is and thought wow! How does it stay up. It leans something like 5 metre's off centre at the top. It rained the whole time while at the leaning tower, but it was still a great day. There are guys everywhere trying to sell umbrellas, they irritate me no end and get a very firm 'nick off' from ...
... was a hardly detectable olive oil, citrus and salt. We loved the burrata cheese and hope to have it again.
The salad was preceded by a fried pasta dough which had the consistency of the fried potatoes at Le Bistro, Incline Village, Lake Tahoe, NV.
Our secondi was a freshly home made tagliatelle topped with tiny clams, red shrimp and shellfish flavored with white wine, olive oil and a touch of butter.

Historical Traveler Reviews Alloro B&B Florence
Davvero molto accogliente!!!!!
Sono rimasta molto colpita č stata un ottima esperienza, ero molto curiosa di vedere com'era dato che era la prima volta che soggiornavo in un B&B e ne sono rimasta piacevolmente stupita. VERY VERY GOOD!!!!!!!!!
Alloro is one of the best b&b I ever stayed at. Highly recomend for anyone traveling to Florence.
After reading the great reviews about the Alloro Bed & Breakfast on TripAdvisor, we decided to stay there for 6 nights during our honeymoon in Florence last month. This was the best decision! The Alloro B&B was BETTER than we expected. The room was really big and very clean and so was the bathroom. It was also uniquely decorated with a painting on the ceiling! The owner and his son took great care of us during our stay. They greeted us with a map and some great recommendations for local restaurants which were all great -- especially La Spada. They brought breakfast to our room every morning -- juice, milk, coffee, bread/croissants, cheese and jam. The location is great -- only a short walk from the train staion. There are many great restaurants and gellaterias right outside the doors of this B&B. We only paid 110 euros per night -- which was much less than you would spend on a 4 or 5 star hotel in the area but you wouldn't get the coziness and truly unique experience of this B&B. We would stay here without hesitation on our next trip to Florence.
Was very happy with Alloro! The room was large and very comfortable. The location was perfect..very near the train station and the San Lorenzo market and the staff was extremely helpful!! Also, the breakfast was great!
Breakfast in the sun
We spent here 5 days in May 2006 and we loved it. We had the room with a balcony and every morning we had our perfect breakfast in the sun. It was more than we expected.
Not only the people, the breakfast, the sun, the spacious room and a good bed, but also the location of this B&B is perfect. I will recommand it to everyone I know that is visiting Firenze. I also hope to visit it again myself. Mille grazie and arreverderci from Corina and Arianne from Holland.
Ottimo!!!! Hotel ALLORO super consigliato !!!!
In pieno centro cittā, a pochi passi dalla stazione di S. Maria Novella e a meno di 5 minuti dal Duomo.
Camera bellissima e servizio eccellente.
Gestori cordiali e simpatici.
Small, comfy, and close to everything!
This B and B, on the 3rd floor of a city building in Florence, was everything we were hoping for. It was small (only a few rooms) but the room was huge, clean, and charmingly Florintine (we had paintings on our ceiling). They served breakfast to us in our room, which was really nice. We had a balcony (not a great view but the breeze was nice) and the B and B was about 2 blocks from the central train station, the Duomo, etc. Great location, service, and rooms for the price!
How to stay in a very comfortable past....
How to stay in a beautiful antique palace of Florence with the maximum comfort... I was in this lovely b&B for one nigth for a romantic trip. Absolutely appreciated room, large and comfortable, marble bathrooms, elegant furniture. Very quiet, we slept like babies and in the morning, breakfast in the room with no extra charge with home made yogurth, not so easy to find in the heart of Florence! Definitely a beautiful experience, at a reasonable price. To be repeated as soon as possible

BEAUTIFUL B&B - Highly Recommend
We were travelling around Europe for 6 weeks and this was without a doubt the best place we stayed in. The rooms were large and appeared newly renovated. It was immaculately clean and the owners were friendly and helpful, lovely and fresh continental breakfast. Great location between the station and the Duomo. Everything was in walking distance. I will definitely return!
Between Duomo and Santa Maria Novella
A lovely room in central Florence
We stayed in Alloro B&B in February 2006. The room was beautiful, the bathroom the nicest we'd found in Italy- with good towels and soaps etc and a big bath. Everything was kept very clean.The owners were unobtrusive but friendly. It was central and very good value.It doesn't have a view but you can hear the bells of the Duomo and despite being close to the Railway station it is not noisy. It was like having one's own appartment in Florence. We highly recommend it and intend to return.
