Travel Blogs from Florence
Update on last night, after writing the blog i went back to the palazzo vecchio same as the night before accompanied by my book and about half an hour after sitting down some buskers arrived. They had an acoustic guitar, a violin and a double bass and played for over an hour, and were brilliant for all of it! People were dancing and clapping along and it was a really nice atmosphere. I had really wanted to find some live ...
... a gril from France, none of whose names I remember.
Remaining students for the week include: Lena, In'ha, Oliver, Fernanda, and Daniele (and of course, me). I include a photo of In'ha doing an especially rapid fire hand jabbing session that my camera captured only as a blur.
When school was out at 1 pm Friday, I had a leisurely amble through the shops I had had no time for previously and picked up a couple of T-shirts, then ate in a ...
... wine. The tour took us to a couple of other small towns in the area of Tuscany where we got to buy some supplies for dinner that evening.
We explored four towns at Cinque Terre which is a beautiful mountainous region by the ocean. It was a little disappointing that all of the hiking trails were closed except for one. ...
... line for Accademia where the famous David statue is located. I explore the leather markets a bit considering getting a bag (I didn't end up bringing a waterproof one) but the pushy salesmen put me off and I leave for the day. Also I realise I haven't made an ATM visit in a while and couldn't purchase the perfect bag yet even if I found it. I unpack my slightly soggy bag and realise Ratty now has blue markings to commemorate his ...
... really odd, but by the end of my stay, I found endearing. It wasn't my favourite hostel, but it wasn't too bad either :) Tuesday 23 April 2013: Travel to Florence day! I have gotten into a habit of getting up early so that I don't waste the day and my time. My train was at 9.30am and was thankfully on time. My train rides are normally very uneventful. Except a nice Indian lady traveling with her two young children and husband, struck up a conversation with me. She was nice, ...
How has this b&b rated in the past?
This B&B was perfect for our group of 4. As we requested, the room was furnished with 4 single beds. Double beds can also be provided when requested. The room for 4 was not too big and had enough space for us without being suffocating.
Valeria, one of the owners, kindly confirmed our arrival time through emails. Although we were able to arrive within the prescribed check-in time, she would be able to accommodate late check-in time as well. She also helped us with bookings for Uffizi museum and Accademia gallery. Thanks to her, we were able to get the bookings for the times we wanted even though it was just 1 week away until our arrival in Florence.
The room was clean enough. My friend who has dust allergy didn't have any problem during our stay. The electric sockets were plenty, however, be mindful that the sockets were the 3 prong model. slim 2 prong plugs can fit in no problem, but fat 2 prong plugs will not fit in. I didn't check with Domenico, the other owners who received us during our stay, but the B&B might be able to provide adapters. Just check with Valeria or Domenico before you arrive. Supposedly, the room wasn't to be cleaned while we were there but, to our surprise, the room was cleaned and tidied up every day we were there. We really appreciate the extra efforts to make us comfortable during the stay.
The highlight of this B&B is its location. I don't deny that anywhere in the Florence is walking distance to anywhere you want to go within the city. The location of Cimatori that is almost exactly in the middle of the city makes it a convenient place to travel anywhere in the city. It's about 5 minutes walk to the duomo and less than that to Uffizi. We walked from the train station to the B&B. Don't be concerned with its location in a small alley. Actually, small alleys are the veins of the city. We had fun exploring the city by walking through the small alleys. Just ask Domenico or Valeria for a city map and have a good time in the city.

Best location possible for B and B in Firenze
Enjoyed our brief stay. Location is perfect for exploring all of the sites. Directions to location very helpful. Welcome was warm. Helped with dinner reservations. Rooms large, private bath. Continental breakfast good. Would return and recommend to others.
Ci siamo trovati veramente bene!
La cortesia e la disponibilitÓ sono fra le doti migliori di questo b&b e nella persona di Domenico.
Tutto Ŕ curato e ben tenuto,si ha la massima libertÓ di movimento e tanti piccoli accorgimenti che proverete anche voi se vi andrete a soggiornare.
La posizione Ŕ centralissima e ben servita dagli autobus e nonostante tutto molto tranquilla.
Lo consiglio vivamente!!
The best accomodation in Firenze
Good place, good staff, good location (close by S.Maria del Fiore and Piazza della Signoria).
I reccommend this location for your stay in Florence.
I love Italy, and one of my favorite destinations is Florence. I've been to Florence a number of times, and I adore its compact historical center just filled with Renaissance art and churches and awesome shopping. I've discovered over the years that the best way to go is to stay in a bed and breakfast. Because Florence is such a small city center, most of the large hotels are actually located outside of the city walls. Staying in a bed and breakfast ensures that you will be right in the center of town in the middle of all the action, walking distance to all of the museums, restaurants and hotspots. Another added bonus is the small scale - in a large hotel, you may feel like just another anonymous tourist, but B&Bs typically have just a few rooms so you have more of a homelike atmosphere and more personal attention.
My Florence home
This was my second stay at the Cimatori. Great location, friendly and accommodating staff, very comfortable room. I am sure that I will stay here again my next visit. Excellent recommendation overall in terms of staff, location, room, and price. The breakfast is average for a B and B.
Fantastic Accomodation & Hospitality
My wife and I stayed here during the summer this year for the second year running and can`t praise the accomodation or staff highly enough. Linda and Domenico (please forgive me if it is spelt wrong) made us feel like part of their family and it was a real wrench to say goodbye.
The rooms are spacious, clean and welcoming. The bathroom was spotless and contained everything we needed.
Domenico and Linda were a source of information on events, attractions, places to visit, history, restaurants and directions.
In short we`ve never felt so home at any other accomodation in any city! And we`ve done a fair bit of travelling!
Loved Cimatori Bed and Breakfast
Cimatori Bed and Breakfast is a perfect address for a pleasant stay in Firenze. You will be welcome by sympathetic people; rooms are very nice and located in the heart on Firenze, near by all the more important places to visit. Like us, you'll not regret your choice.
Cimatori - Dante himself would be a customer
I have travelled to Florence on a few of occassions, and have stayed various spots central and on the fringes. Cimatori B&B however balanced both needs to be central in such a layered city with a high standard of accomodation and basic needs.
The Cimatori has a definate character to its rooms which is typically italian. Most times I felt I was staying with friends sharing their home right in the heart of Florence city. It's facilities are well taken care of and for the traveller breakfast is about the only meal you will need at your room - the rest will be right out of your doorstep, with the Duomo at your back and the shopping precinct all around.
I highly reccommend this location for your stay in Florence. Four stars.
Absoultely top class!!!
My wife and I were a little nervous at staying here as we`d not seen any reviews but on arriving and being greeted by the guy (sorry but we`ve forgotten his name) we knew immediately we`d found a gem. The guy was so helpful it was unreal. The room was spotless and well laid out. The bathroom was brand spanking new and everything worked a treat. The walk up a few flights of steps wasn`t a problem either and the location near all the main attractions couldn`t have been better When we go bakc to Florence we`ll be trying to book the Cimatori Guest House first. We can recommend it to everyone!!! Absoultely top class!!!
