Wake up in Massa and we're staying in Florence tonight but we’re so near to Pisa we decide to pay a visit. It’s only a slight detour and we both feel that we’ve heard it’s not a pretty place so we’re unlikely to go there direct any time. Time to see what this tower lean is all about.
Entering Pisa is pretty …

Saturday, we worked our glutes some more and climbed to the top of the bell tower. The views were just as beautiful from this structure, but it was nice to get a little different perspective of the city, and look over Florence on a new day.
We went to the Boboli Gardens afterwards, and wow that place is huge! You would assume that the land behind Pitti palace is large, but ...
... bit difficult to get around due to street closures but after 1:00 it was back to normal. We started out at the Galleria dell'Academia Museum to see Michaelangelo's masterpiece "The David". It is spectacular but like most museums, we could not take pictures. Afterward we proceeded to the soaring Duomo with the dome by Brunelleschi. The Cathedral is constructed of ...

Florence is the Leather & Gold centre of the world, it was so much cheaper for gold, diamonds & leather, I was surprised how cheap it was, saw a couple of emeralds but didn't have time to size the ring hey hey. ...
Today our day started with a walking tour of Florence. On our tour our first stop was Duomo the baptistery and the Campanile di Giotto. We walked to the Ponte Vecchio and saw that statue of David. After our tour we saw a leather demonstration, which I learnt a lot. After that some free time to explore. Had a fantastic lunch of pasta. Next on the road again heading to Rome. First night in Rome starts with a walking tour. Starting at the Colosseum, to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Borghese Palace Art Hotel Florence
This is a cool hotel, modern decor with a quirky twist. Visually very pleasing, nice, clean, uncluttered and new.
We stayed at the Borghese Palace Art Hotel in September. The staff was very helpful. They arranged museum and tour reservations for us and everything worked out perfectly (their private driver to Tuscan wine country is fabulous.) The hotel was very nice and clean and in a great location. Our only complaint was that it was noisy at times. We could hear between the walls of the rooms so it felt a little like you were sharing space with your neighbors--i mentioned this to the front desk and they said they would talk to the room next to use...don't think that happened. Also, there's a night club in the street behind the hotel so if you're staying on a Friday or Saturday night be warned that it can get rowdy. But, the hotel was nice and the staff was great, so we just threw some ear plugs in and didn't complain. We got a good price for the hotel on Booking.com and I would overall recommend this hotel.
Creative and Chic
Our stay at the Borghese Art Palace Hotel in Florence was wonderful. The hotel lobby is very stylish and our room was modern and had very chic decor. This is a smaller hotel which made it quite nice and personal in feel. We really enjoyed breakfast (excellent selection of bread and cakes, yogurt, fruit, cheese/etc., along with perfect cappucino). The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful (thanks Massimo and Claudio). The hotel bar is also a nice place to have a drink after a long day. The hotel is in a great location and I would definitely recommend it to others for their stay in Florence.
I recently stayed in this hotel with my boyfriend for 3 nights and was disapointed, I have stayed in a few 4 star hotels and they have all been of a higher standard than this hotel. That's not to say it didn't have good points such as the location, really central to the main sights of Florence. The bed was really large and comfortable, one of the nicest I've slept in and the room was decorated to a high standard. The staff were all really helpful and friendly and considering its a relatively new hotel there didn't appear to be any of the usual teething problems. However, the breakfast was not up to the standard of a 4 star hotel although it wasn't awful there wasn't any hot food, just yogurt, fruit and cakes, I expected much more variety considering the cost of staying there. Also our toilet leaked and the bathroom floor was wood so this began to cause damage and although we informed reception nothing was done. Again in a four star hotel you would expect any problems to be rectified asap. While this hotel is in no way awful I'm sure there are better choices in Florence.
Just returned from a wonderful stay at the borghese art hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful (especially massimio, sing, & the porther i 'don't remeber the name). Breakfest was good. (More variety would have been nice.) Room was very clean and quiet. Looked out over the street. Good location in very nice neighborhood. Would definately return and recommend to others.
This hotel is is very central and ideal for all the main sights, restaurants and shops. The bedrooms are spacious and fitted out to a very high standard with plasma TV and interesting lighting. Every thing is new, arty and very modern with a slight renaissance twist. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great place to stay at very reasonable rates.
Definitely a palace
My partner and I have just returned from our trip to Europe. If you are going to Florence, this hotel is fantastic. Beautifully renovated, very central and fantastic staff. Nothing is too much trouble. The only thing I could say that is negative about this hotel is that it can be a little noisy. However in their defence it was World Cup time so there were a lot of people out and about. I wouldn't let this deter you though. Very pleasant stay.
I just returned from a two week trip to Italy with my husband and two teenage daughters. The Borghese Palace was far and away the best hotel we stayed at in Italy. We had some hesitations about booking the hotel since it was new and had no reviews at the time on TripAdvisor, but the price (250 Euros for a quad room) and location made us take a chance. We are so glad that we did!
Loved this hotel!!
This hotel was a definite treat for my husband and I. We just returned from a trip including Rome, Florence and Venice - this hotel was a highlight! It's very new - and has everything you'd need in a hotel. It's rooms are spacious (most European hotels are very small!) and very, very clean. The staff is extremely helpful - the breakfast is great (typical European, not American, but good!) and the location is just perfect. We had a wonderful stay there and would return in a heartbeat!
