Travel Blogs from Florence
The first full day in Florence was mind blowing. I got myself up at a decent time and my friend Francesco was waiting in the lobby at our hotel. He had taken two days off of work to show me and my Dad around Florence, and had taken his scooter down to our hotel. We all had breakfast at our hotel, which was by far one of the best I've ever had in …
Ever since I returned from this epic trip I can't get the thought of writing a travel blog about it. Traveling in Europe just seemed so...normal? I'm not sure how to put it. I guess I created such a travel groove for myself last spring that I really felt in the zone and totally comfortable traveling. The similarities between this trip and my …
... We watched some kids run into a creperie and decided it was time for Mom to try her first Nutella crepe. They are so gooey and chocolatey and sweetly delicious. Once we were in Santa Croce, we only had a little time, so went straight to the Masters' tombs. I can't explain the absolute disbelief and surrealty of standing in front of the spot where Galileo, Michelangelo and Dante rest. I mean, you're literally 10 feet from the father of modern astronomy, the painter of the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bernini Palace Hotel Florence
Beautiful, Elegant Hotel
The Bernini hotel was a wonderful find at a reasonable price. Its location is extremely convenient, a very short walk from most of the sights in Florence. The hotel was beautiful, and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was very elegant with a lovely view of the plaza. The bathroom was quite large and beautiful. All of the furnishings were lovely, and the king-sized bed was very comfortable. The complementary breakfast in the morning was excellent.
This was a wonderful hotel, and we would definitely stay there again.
The Bernini was a terrific find
The Bernini is a full-featured hotel with beautiful rooms, lobbies and a cozy café. The location cannot be beat. Just steps away from every major location (but very quiet). Our room was tastefully decorated and with ample air conditioning during the August 2003 heat wave. Breakfast was served in a gorgeous room and was well above average in selection.
The staff was top notch.
Luxurious and Classy
Stayed at the Bernini Palace in July 2003. Another review calls it a B&B, but I wouldn't classify it as such. The room was beautifully appointed with a printed carpet, formal draperies and a crystal chandelier. The bath was large with a separate sink area and large counter space. The tile floors were heated, as well as the towel bars.
Nice! The room even had a doorbell.
Breakfast is included and was an upscale version of the typical breakfast we found all over Europe...eggs, meat, cheeses, croissants, fruit, cereals, yogurt, juices, and even champagne. The staff was very helpful and professional.
The Bernini is very close to the Uffizzi Gallery and convenient to the other main sights in Florence, but not on the main drag. The only problem was they charged 15 Euros more than the rate I had confirmed with Travelocity, even though I had a printed confirmation. There is also a 30 Euro per day parking fee which they wanted in cash at departure.
