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.

A glorious sunny day in Florence with temperatures reaching 23, a short sleeved day without umbrellas. Off we went back down the narrow streets during the early morning rush hour to meet our guide Fryda at 8:30 am in front of a copy of Michelangelo's David at the Uffizi Museum. Our guide Freya, a transplanted Aussi is to be …
... just enough time to take lots of happy snaps, of course one where I'm pushing the tower over before we had to walk back to the bus. On the road again, to Florence!! Arrived at around 3ish, dumped our bags and then headed off on a walking tour. Clare walked us to Florence's famous Duomo, and from there, a local tour guide, Alessandro took over. This guy was awesome. He had a fat monkey ...
We caught the little short fat bus to the train station to book our tickets to Greve in Chianti (our next stop). The bus went down the tiniest streets, honking its horn at people who just calmly stepped in front of it! Our first museum stop was the Medici Chapel which was built to house the remains of members of the ruling family. There are two parts - the Chapel of Princes, and the Sacristy. The Chapel is a beautiful dome, with the sides covered ...
... scallopini with lemon sauce.
We now felt ready to go home. We wandered back to the bus stop, making our way through the Piazza de Republica which was filled with people and a colorful carousel. By the way, the name of the restaurant we had just left (La Giostra) is Italian for "carousel"; how fitting.
We returned to the hotel, repacked our bags for the flights and prepared for our 5am wake up call.
Things getting better by the hour...
Although the train we wanted to take out of Venice was sold out and we had to wait a couple hours, we had a marvellous trip to Florence. We had an AV top of the line train with super comfy seats, folding tables, reading lights and plug ins for pretty much anything!
We found our apartment easily -- super spacious main room with loft bedroom -- and after a quick unpacking went to get groceries. Of course we had to walk past the duomo ...
