We are leaving Cinque Terre behind and looking forward to seeing Florence, However first stop on the way is Pisa. We have heard that there is not much to do in Pisa but that the Piazza is a must see (Leaning Towers there). So we stroll into town park illegally walk to the center and check it out. It is pretty cool and you get one of those I am …
... the only car in the tour that followed Bebbe on a lovely drive through the county side, stopping a few time for discussions. (The other two scheduled couples cancelled.) We learned a lot about how the vineyards are planted, maintained and harvested. We also had the opportunity to walk through an olive grove where the harvest will begin in a couple weeks. Bebbe told us why the trees are pruned in such a peculiar manner to increase the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Residence Michelangiolo Florence
We spent five nights at the Residence Michelangiolo, located on a beautiful tree-lined avenue. Recently meticulously and beautifully restored, this villa is extremely pleasing to the eye. When we were there Angela had received flowers for her birthday, and the bouquets were placed at the entry where we could all enjoy them.
What a delight after four days in Paris and Rome to drive down Viale Michelangiolo amongst the most beautiful private residences in Florence to discover our residence awaiting us after a long day on the road.
We satyed here for 3 nights in January & 1 night in Pisa. The accomodation is absolutely fantastic- we stayed in a double room with a cot for our 1.5yr old son, this was beautifully decorated, at least 2-3 times the size of a usual hotel room! The room was very warm & comfortable with a beautiful view out of the huge windows. The hotel owners were extremely nice & could not do enough to help. We were away for my wife`s birthday & even though none of us told them about it, on our last night we came back from our meal to find a bottle of bubbly & glasses awaiting us in our room! The hotel is approx 15 minute walk to the centre of Florence which should not put anyone off as it is a beautiful walk along the river. It is obvious a lot of time & money has been invested into the refurbishment, since the place has only opened August `05, it is unfair to call the Residence Michelangiolo a hotel because it is much more than that - self catering accomodation in a small mansion in a beautiful city.
The best that could happen to us
we were in florence for the marathon and unfortunately the weather was quite awful.
but the staff in the hotel and the rooms were really nice and great.
we decided that if we come back to florence one time, the first hotel we will contact is this one.
A good choice, but not a perfect one
It's a nice, quite and well decorated house with very friendly and helpfull staff. Two things may not please everybody :
1. The breakfast. You have to make your own coffee in the kitchenette. There is a sad biscuit coming with it.
2. You can't receive calls after 6 pm, which is inconvinient for travellers who don't belief in mobile phones.
we were at the residence Michelangelo for 3 days, it was fantastic. The rooms were big and beautifull, bathroom were clean as new, and the service are perfect.The people at the desck are exceptional, they are kind, nice, helpfull...we were welcome like familly members.So i realy recomande this place to any body that wants to spend nigths in florence with an atmosphere of that periode of time in an splendid envirment.
The Residence Michelangiolo is a jewel of a property in a quiet residential area within a short walking distance to the center of Florence. There is also a bus stop only one block from the hotel offering frequent service to major tourist sites in Florence. The Residence is rated 3 stars but in our opinion it should be a 4.5 star rating. Each of the 11 rooms have been completely renovated with many guest comforts. The rooms are quite large and we found them to be extremely clean and nicely appointed. There is also parking on-site, inside a gated parking lot. Our group of six travelers were not only impressed with the facility, but also with the staff who could not have been more accomodating or professional. Angela and Barbara were very helpful in offering suggestions and directions to local eating establishments, city sites in Florence and finally, recommendations to wineries in nearby Tuscany.
Have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Residence Michelangiolo and cannot over emphasise what a wonderful find it is!
Beautiful place, great hospitality
We've just returned from a 3 night stay in this great place. Not only is it beautifully and sympathetically decorated, but the welcome offered is fabulous, without ever being intrusive or overbearing. Angela and Barbara are really sweet hosts, and never stopped smiling the entire time we were there. In addition, on our third night, (having been in Siena for a few days in the interim), we came home to find a bottle of Chianti and 2 glasses and a welcome back note.
It really is a find, and we will definitely go back!
Our eight-day stay in this beautifully renovated charming Italian villa truly exceeded our expectations. From the moment we arrived (late in the evening), Barbara and Angela provided us with first rate service. Both the personal attention and beautifully quiet surroundings contributed to making this our best holiday experience ever. Our room, with a terrace overlooking the garden, was beautifully decorated. From the king-sized majestic bed in the bedroom (dressed in what could only be described as a custom-tailored Florentine golden textile dream) to the flower-shaped chandelier in the kitchen, no detail was spared when transforming this villa into a peaceful retreat.
