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 …
Back in Aeroporto Angelo Vespucci Firenze for the flight home. A certain famous professor is sitting just behind me (no Sunil, not Halle Berry this time) speaking in Tamil with his wife (no, nothing scandalous to report). It's been an interesting few days at the conference - some of the issues are identical to ours in Singapore, some completely alien. There were speakers who befuddled with what seemed like font size 8 covering entire PowerPoint slides, while others (like the ...
... everything, but because I've eaten so much gelato in the last few weeks I limited myself to a chocolate spoon for my coffee. Through pure chance we also happened upon one of the many street markets that pops up over the weekends. They sell all sorts of goodies - mostly leather stuff - and as you walk down all you hear is "bella, bella!", "I give you good price!". Italians don't have the best English as a rule, and often they just like to practise it on us because they can see ...
After we had pasta and sam paid 3EUR for 20cl of tonic water (ahahahaa highly amusing) we walked up the hill over Florence. View from the top of the hill in Florence at sunset was genuinely one of the best views I have ever seen in my life! Hugely busy yet stunning. I couldn't pull my eyes away! We thought we saw some shooting stars then realised they were little toys. Hmm. These little toys seemed to be plaguing us everywhere. Then after a slow ...
... the history pages and throughout the city itself. I mean that literally. In the old town, it's difficult to walk a block without seeing the old family crest emblazoned on something. The Medici aside, Firenze is the Renaissance. The Renaissance is Firenze. Every major artist from that golden era had a connection to the red-roofed city, including all of the Ninja Turtles. You know who I mean. In Rome, the story was about the ancients--the Coliseo, the Fora Romano. ...

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.
