... the statues for a photo opp.
We made our way up the shallow stairs to the lush Boboli Gardens. One of the first things you see is the area closest to the Palazzo Pitti, the horseshoe-shaped amphitheater. In its center are an Egyptian obelisk and a basin from ancient Rome resembling a bathtub. [Tip – read Dan Brown's Inferno.] We took many photos here. The numerous paths along the side ...
... We arrived at Santa Maria Novella station and met our friends the Cooks at our hotel Tornabeacci , went to the rooftop for refreshments and got assaulted by the pigeons.... Strolled down to Illatini's for a fantastic family style dinner, the owners acted like they remembered us from our trip in 2009... Not sure I buy that but appreciated their welcoming effort. We decided to turn in.... Tomorrow we make a the ...
... one last time and on the highway to Firenze (Florence). We will be seeing the statue of David here - another Michealangelo masterpiece. So far it's been sunny but with fog building up. Unfortunately, the views are hidden a bit. I did get a good photo of Orte, a typical hilltop walled village. We had a 'services' stop and got some snacks, then on to Firenze. The next stop was at the Piazza Michealangelo which has a wonderful view over the city of Firenze. Unfortunately it must ...
... a street address is somewhat tricky here as you have black and red house numbers in the same street and you don't know what colour you are looking for. We had to ask and were pointed into the right direction. We are staying in a little flat on the 2nd floor, with lots of stairs going up, which has a lounge with sofa bed as well as a kitchen and a bedroom where I am in. It is on a very busy and noisy street that has shops and restaurants in it and is within walking distance to ...
After a 3 hour train ride, we arrived in Florence around 11:00 today. Our B&B is right in the heart of all the major attractions. Unfortunately, due to the holiday today, the city is very crowded. Our B&B hostess is from America and she has been a great help answering all of our questions. We decided to go to the Piazzale Michelangelo which has amazing views of the city and a lot of steps to get there. We then went across the Ponte Vecchio bridge which is also pretty amazing. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Gallery Hotel Art Florence
One of our favorites!
My husband and I stayed at the Gallery Art Hotel for three days in April '04. The location was amazing, within five minute walking distance to all the major sites. The service was excellent and we got a room with a view of the Duomo. At night we went around to several bars in the city but felt that the bar in the hotel (Fusion Bar) had the best local chic crowd. We loved this place!!!
The best staff!!
I enjoy my stay veru much, the staff was very helpful, expecially Jakomo, Jan Simon.... Very good location, and dinner suggestions. I'll be back as soon as possible....
Great Location with poor service
The hotel itself was very well appointed and you could't ask for a better location. The buffet breakfast was lovely though high priced and I enjoyed the room itself very much. However, while the front desk was very helpful and polite I can't say the same for the bar and restaurant. We were treated VERY rudely by several different members of the bar staff on more than one occasion. I am a very seasoned traveler and have often defended the Parisians against the steriotypical comments regarding rude waiters, but the staff at this hotel made the cafe waiters in Paris look like good will abassadors. Just drink and eat elsewhere and you'll love the place.
reading at comments I feel like I have been in another hotel!! From my experience service was really great and people made each single day special to us.It was a great experience! I would defenatelly suggest it!..I still remember some names that made my holiday special, ciao Emma, Jean, Segio and all the others!
Great location, horrible service
Although the location is practically perfect, the service is dreadful.
Considering what we were paying, we were very disappointed.
Too bad the service was awful for the dollar. I would recommend the location but the personnel all thought they were doing us a favor for paying our bill. Would never recommend, and by hearing what the other guest were saying at breakfast I dont think they would either.
Don't miss the point! Too cool for skool?
We arrived after the thrill of a drive through the streets of Florence that would rival the Italian Job! Fantastic location and slick boutique style decor.
However, the hotel staff should be reminded that they are not staff in the Georgio Armani shop and there to ensure all guests are made to feel comfortable (lose the attitude!)
Would thoroughly recommend the sister hotel opposite - "Hotel Continentale" - the rooftop bar provides the most amazing views of Florence and provides genuinly cool yet friendly service. A fun hotel that hasn't lost its sense of humour. That's the point!
Gallery Hotel Art is stylish & comfortable
Just returned from Italy. Stay at Hotel Gallery Art was very pleasant. Reserved a Jr. Suite and thought they gave us the wrong room because it was so large and more like a full suite. Good location right by the Ponte Vecchio but on a very quiet street. We drove there from Umbria and had no trouble finding or getting to the hotel. Excellent service and air conditioning. Would definately stay there again.
Luxury & Location
The Gallery Hotel Art was pure luxury - from the heated towels to the bounteous breakfast buffet or breakfast in our room - champagne for breakfast on our last day! Step out the lobby door, which is being held open by a distant relative of Lorenzo the Magnificent and you're in the most magnificent city in the entire world. Wonderful.
My husband and I visited Florence in May of 2002, and we picked Gallery Hotel Art for its location (a stone-throw from Ponte Vecchio) and modern decor. The Ferragamo family has done an excellent job creating such a modern sanctuary amidst the renaissance capital. Across the river, the Lungarno Hotel, under the same Ferragamo ownership, is equally impressive, albeit with a very different atmosphere.
