Today we set our alarm quite early as we wanted to be on a 7:30am train to Cinque Terre since it's a 3 hour train trip and the last train back is at 6:30pm limiting the amount of time we’d have to explore the five towns that make up Cinque Terre. After dealing with the consistently rude staff at the train station we managed to figure out how …
Despite having quite a few people tell us that Pisa wasn't worth the side trip, we decided to do it anyway. It’s such an iconic building (one of Italy’s big three attractions) that we felt we just had to see it plus we were so wasted from the last few days that Pisa gave us an opportunity to sleep in as there are plenty of trains to …
We are seriously tired today but looking forward to a change of scenery so we checked out of the hotel, had a quick breakfast and headed to Termini Station. After a bit of searching we found our train and took our seats. Naturally we had the biggest bags of anyone in the train but luckily I managed to squeeze them into the overhead compartments. …
... Ponte Vecchio, which is only a couple of minutes down the hill, and into the old town....along with about 20,000 of our intrepid friends.
Pretty busy, lots of tourists, plenty of tour groups just waiting to swallow you up.
The Ponte Vecchio is a Medieval stone closed-spandrel segmental arch bridge over the Arno River, noted for still having shops built along it, as was once common. Mostly jewellery shops of varying quality.
Pretty cool ...

There was a time when Firenze was one of the most important cities in the world. After all, it was their banks and their money (the florin) which financed everyone from the Kings of England to the papacy itself, and it was their city that served as a trading hub for all of Europe. Indeed, the language of Firenze in the 14th and 15th centuries is recognized today as ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Caravaggio Florence
We Stayed at the Carvaggio Hotel from May 20, to May 24, 2004. The room and bathroom were very spacious and clean. Everything worked. The maid service was excelent. We walked to it from the train station towing our baggage. The staff were friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make you feel welcome. No question went unanswered. Although crowded, we loved Florence. But I'd like to go back just to see Carlo and the rest of the staff. The pizzeria next door was also excelent and a good value. You will not find a better 3 star or 4 star for that matter. The location was easy walking to anywhere.

FABULOUS HOTEL. Rooms are spacious and clean. Bathroom was huge. Staff great, esp. Carlo at the front desk. Location within walking distance to everything. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Price was unbeatable, should be rated as a 4 star hotel.
Beautiful, comfortable, and a great value
This hotel was beautiful and very reasonably priced. The rooms were spotlessly clean and well-decorated with quality furniture. The concierge was very, very nice and helpful. The breakfast was incredible---there was a choice of about five different cereals, cornettos, rolls, and biscuits. The location was ok---it wasn't too far from the train station, but I almost wish we had stayed a little closer to the breath-taking Duomo. I really can't complain, though---the quality and value of this hotel were great, and it was fun exploring the side streets.
