TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Fiorita Florence
On my first stop in Italy I stayed at Hotel Fiorita before heading to my Villa in Sesto and wanted a nicely located hotel. This hotel is located in a building with two other hotels and is located on the third floor, but is well priced and the rooms are sizeable. There is a breakfast included which is really nice. Internet was an extra cost, but was fairly priced with the lowest level package being 3.5 euro per hr. and the highest package being 12 euro for 12 hrs. The hotels is two blocks away from Santa Maria Novella, the main train station. The staff are very friendly and patient with tourists. Good stay overall.

... Now when I say potato spaghetti I don’t mean a pasta that has some potato in it like gnocchi, these were long strands of actual potato made to look like spaghetti, she loved it. I had tiny wild boar raviolini, each no bigger than a quarter, with a paper thin bread crisp placed on top of each, in a Cinta Senese pork jus, it was truly amazing. For dinner we both had suckling pig pork belly, with freeze dried asparagus and tomatoes ...
... we're not used to subtlety. It was still a remarkably beautiful painting. We also saw the first complete painting by Leonardo da Vinci, and the only painting from Michelangelo still in existence. It was an immense and mind-boggling gallery, and we were only there for 2 hours. We only really scratched the surface, so I guess we'll just have to come back to Florence one day soon to really do it justice. That's it, it's decided. Florence, I promise I'll be back.
... and it was just delightful. We had a gorgeous Italian women and only seven in our group so it was fantastic.
We had late lunch after the tour and then rested in the late afternoon before heading to dinner and onto the Opera.
Not just any sort of Opera, a soprano and tenor singing love songs from famous operas.
It was held in St Marks Church of England ...
Took the train to Florence the other day (june 4th), arrived with plenty of time to walk around the town a bit before dinner. Yesterday we got to see Michaelangelo square and got to the city view point just in time before the rain started. Today we got to see the Duomo and the Pitti Palace with all of the Palatine Galleries. Now as much as I love museums (especially art ones)...*cough*not*cough* this day was one of Zach's favourites in Italy so ...
... There were some interesting pieces in here. Ken was keen to see a Donatello sculpture of Mary Magdallen, but it didn't really do it for me. The last part of the tour we visited was the Battistero. This also has a dome ceiling, the inside covered with beautiful gold mosaics.
We found a nice little fattoria (I think it is more a wine establishment than a trattoria) for dinner. Ken has given on trying to find nice beers in restaurants so ordered a ...
