Crossed the Plains of Lombardy again, passed by the forested Apennine Mountains, and the port city of Genoa on our way to Pisa. Caught a glimpse of the mountains where Carrera marble is quarried. This is the marble used in Michelangelo's David and Pieta. It is beautiful and white and more flawless than most marbles.
Stopped in Pisa and …
Orvieto began this year's journey with a lovely lunch at an emote coca which served great food of all kinds, unusual for wine bar. We then met Franco Sala, still excited over his recent visit by Rick Steve's. he gave us an interview about his life and led us down a street filled with merchants where we interviewed half a dozen very interesting …
A few last places to see and photogrph, as Laura and I went our separate ways for a while. I started at the Horne Museum, which did not permit photography. It was virtually impossible to get a single photo with their unscrupulous guards spying everywhere, so I was forced to buy some postcards. It is, however, a fine gallery with works by many well …
First we went to Marino Marini Museum which was spectacular and wonderful, but empty. Unheralded, unknown museum. Ahhhhhh !!!!! Then we walked to the Boboli Gardens, climbed a mile upwards for some spectacular views of Florence to the west and northwest. Amazingly lovely gardens established by Pitti family in the 15th century and Medici in 16 …
In my desire to explain my distaste for the crowds at the Leaning Tower of Pisa, I forgot to mention that the buildings that comprise the Campo dei Miracoles (Field of Miracles) were spectacularly beautfiul. Regardless of the crowds that took a lot of my attention, we were overwhelmed by the magnificence. So now that is put to rest, I can focus on …

Historical Traveler Reviews Croce di Malta Hotel Florence
This is NOT a four star hotel!
We stayed here for part of our honeymoon. Initially booked in for 4 nights we actually left a night early because it was so awful even though we had paid for it!. The room was tiny and dark and the shower was cracked and covered in mildew. The pool was dirty and surrounded by grotty old lounge chairs and horrible concrete. The bar was never open and the so called 'roof top bar' was only open for two hours a day. I would classify it as a two star hotel and definitely NOT a four star. Do not stay here!!
I enjoyed my stay...
I stayed here in February 2004 and really enjoyed it. I was very happy with it's central location, along with it being close to the termini. I was traveling alone so being close to sites and services were important to me. The hotel staff and environment were great! The decor and atmosphere are very inviting and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and accomendating, they made my stay very enjoyable. The breakfast is ample, but the dinners I had were very good and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone going Florence and look forward to my return.
After staying in Atlante star in Rome we were impressed with the lobby and lounge area...very spacious. Small lifts although there is two of them. Room was more spacious although i agree with other reviewer that the room looked like it had been decorated by a bad d.i.y guy. Tiniest bathroom yet nearly killed myself getting out of the shower not helped by the fact that my boyfriend had left the room therefore shutting off the electricity. Keep your key in the wall slot at all times. Our room was high up looking down on the street below...very noisy and awaken many times throughout the night by scooters and street cleaners chinking bottles at 6am. Overall not a bad hotel very close to train station and attractions...AVOID cheesy piano bar with a guy who plays a keyboard ontop of a beautiful grand piano singing god awful songs.
We just returned from a wonderful week in Italy, ending in three nights at this hotel. Our two traveling couples were delighted with our stay here.
Very nice 4 stars
The hotel is locates in the city center walking distance to the duomo, the room was nice and just renovates facing the garden.
These reviews are too harsh in my opinion. We spent a week here in July, and had a wonderful time. The crucial point is to contact the hotel in advance and book a de luxe room with a balcony, facing the pool. (Not a big price difference...).
More like a two-star. Got this from AAA. Defintely won't go back to them! Traffic at all hours and noisy! If you want convenience to the train station, this is about all this hotel has going for it.
This hotel was booked by our travel agent and it may have been acceptable for a 2-Star budget. This is not a 4-Star hotel and we paid the most for this one. I was disappointed that our agent booked us here. The service at the front desk was wonderful. The breakfast wasn't great and on one day we couldn't even get a place to sit down. The hotel had a damp and molded smell and seemed to have been updated by a do-it-yourself hotel manager. It was very noisy and not cozy at all.
The only saving grace is that it is almost across the street from the train station. I felt that I was ripped-off and would stay clear of this hotel.
Ok But not the best for a 4 star hotel
Food very nice but initail roomwe were offered was a let down - dark, dingy and noisy from a nearby bar and all the scooters parked in the street below! We asked to swap rooms and had a room with terrace on the back but still a little noisy at night. Needs refurbishment.
