Travel Blogs from Florence
Arrived in Florence after a full day on the train. I found all of the high speed direct trains fully booked so took three trains to get here. Was lovely to see the Tuscan countryside and take a break from walking (although yes I was nervous about the train connections, pickpockets, getting lost, mugged, hijacked, etc). Arrived at my lovely hotel …
Prosecco and OJ, melon and procuitto, frittata and toast....what's not to love about a vacation breakfast! We really took it slowly this morning. Started with a short walk along the Arno to see what the city looks like before the crazy tourist arrive. We understand there is an average of 27,000 tourists a day in Florence...this place isn't big enough for all those extra people. Tuesday is market day at Parc Cascine...can't miss that, so we hopped the lovely C2 to the station and ...
... If you can imagine that typical noise and the naughty kids up the back trying to bounce the rear wheels, you have some idea of how enjoyable that was.
Our first destination from Milan was Florence. Twenty years ago Cate and I became engaged in, and were engaged by, Florence. We staying in hostel accommodation on the 'wrong' side of the river Arno and were always looking for some way to stay cool.

... swap. Of again Florence bound, arriving at 5 o'clock. After studying the map we made our way up the right street to our hotel, again an amusing sight with our luggage. We were met by a lovely Italian lady and shown to our luxurious room ( thanks again Dimity!!). A quick wash and change and we were off to explore. The lovely lady on the desk provided us with a map, directions and recommended restaurant. Our wander was an easy pace taking in our surroundings, so many gelato ...
... group sat and an upper level of a similar layout. So when you were up on stage you were rocking to both levels, it was a great atmosphere. Once again there are some awesome drink deals, we grab a few cocktail buckets for our table and all put in some money. One of our other tables orders a huge three litre canister of beer which comes with a huge firecracker-like sparkler on top. Alan and I decide we are going to sing and go up to select a song. As we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Casci Florence
Home Away from Home!!
The Hotel Casci is the BEST hotel we have ever stayed at on our travels to Italy! It is spotless, the staff treated us like family, and the breakfasts were ample. Our room was terrific with great towels and a large bathroom. We were sorry to leave after a week's stay, it was like leaving family. We had to move on and stayed at four star hotels in Padua and Lake Como but they did not compare to our beloved Casci........We can't wait to visit again. ML and Skye Winter Park, Florida
My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon, and the Lombardi family was wonderful! We were greeted with chilled champagne and glasses in our room upon arrival. Our room was simple and clean with a modern bathroom, color TV, safe, mini-fridge, and a street view. Breakfast every morning was charming. Loved it!
Great Place to Stay!!
I stayed at the Hotel Casci for a couple of nights during the Summer of "03. What a charming place, but the highlight for me was the helpful staff and incredible breakfast. They helped us set up a walking tour and thus served as a travel agent for us. Breakfasts in Europe can be pretty bland, but this place does a very special spread. The hotel is located close to the main sites so it easy to look forward to the short stroll through the city center back to the hotel. Love those Fresco ceilings.
I will be back!!!
Great family-run place
My family stayed at the Hotel Casci for 6 nights from April 17-April 23, 2003. It was a well-run hotel and very accomodating with a great location. They booked 2 wonderful tours for us. The breakfast was all you could eat with freshly made cappucino, coffee, or hot chocolate. The room was small, but clean and had a refrigerator, safe, and cable tv. They were more than happy to help us with anything we asked for. We would definitely stay there again.
If you intend to stay at this hotel, be aware that it is upstairs from the main entrance,accessable by a 1person elevator or stairs! It was a chore to bring all our bags to their lobby. When we finished with the bags, the owner's mother was a bit annoyed that we had so many bags! The next day, we were going to do some last minute shopping prior to our flight. We decided to skip their breakfast and that seemed to be another cause for an attitude!! If i wanted attitude, I could have stayed home!! I will say the rooms were nice. Aside from that, they won't see any business from me again!
Thank you !
Thank you to the Lombardi family for making my stay in Florence last week so comfortable. This was my first experience of this fantastic city, and the hospitality and friendliness they showed made my visit even more memorable. I had a really lovely time and could have stayed for a lot longer! I hope to return to Florence sooner rather than later, and I would very much like to stay at Hotel Casci again.
nice breakfast spread (and nice cappucino/coffee maker), free internet service (a nice perk), gave orientation when we arrived including giving us a good map; great location midpoint between Duomo and Accademia; amazingly helpful staff (one of two high points of the trip hotelwise), good TV access (English language news), adequate room - overall amazing staff
The service at this hotel was just wonderful.. Free library of tour books, free Internet access, wonderful free breakfast, including yummy hot chocolate, and the most knowledgeable staff you could ever ask for.
The location is fantastic, too - We only had to take one bus in 4 days of sightseeing from our home base. We highly, highly recommend this hotel for it's very reasonable price and incredible service. If you decide on this hotel, send Paolo and his mom our very best (Chuck & Harriet)
Five Star Hospitality!
I spent one week at the Casci. The location is excellent (walk to just about everyting), the hotel is clean and comfortable (and charming), the price is nice and the hospitality is off the scale! I was traveling alone and felt very much at home in this family run hotel.
