... which dominates the skyline and is one the city’s most impressive buildings. Built over 700 years ago, it’s still going strong and has the most amazing marble bricks glowing green, white and pink. Being such a huge city, we needed

... traffic area so there are not a lot of vehicles other than bikes, motor scooters, taxis and the odd bus.
Some of the areas around the river and particularly the Ponte Vecchio were very crowded. It was warm enough for me to be wearing a t-shirt so I couldn't understand why so many people were still rugged up with the thickest of coats, scarves etc. They must have been sweltering.

It was so nice to get together with most of the girls that go to Iowa State that for a drink and dinner due to the fact that it is first time since even being abroad we could get us all together.

Waking up we decided to take a day trip to Pisa and Siena. We head to the station via the supermarket for some fruit and yoghurt for breakfast. We board our train and took the ride to Pisa. We met an Italian girl and her miniature jack russell looking dog who liked the yoghurt left over from our breakfast very much, and they kept us company on our way to Pisa. After arriving in Pisa we walked to the other end of town where the leaning tower was ...

We had the whole afternoon to do whatever we wanted. My mom asked my sister and me what we wanted to do and we responded in sync: "faire du shopping!" (If you didn't understand that, it means shop) So, off we went. I found a leather bag, my dad found shoes, my mom and sister also found purses, and my sister even bought a little toy for our dog. ...

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.
