          We stayed at this hotel for two nights. There are four of us in our traveling party - so a quad room was required. In the last two hotels we have stayed at, the family rooms have been right next to the lift - thankfully, this wasn't an issue and there was no loud noises coming from the lift, or the people using it.

          We had to sleep with the windows and shutters closed both nights because the traffic is very very loud. Mostly cars and trucks, occasional people singing and ambulances going about their business. On the first night, this was a problem, because the AC stopped working at about 1am. The next night, the hotel staff came up to our room to reset the controls and it worked perfectly.

          This hotel is in a great location. Located right near the big bus station in Florence, and about a 5 minute walk from the Duomo and Piazza del Repubblica. Great shopping in this location too. The city hop-on/hop-off buses also leave from very close by (1 minute walk) and there are two McDonald's and a Burger King about 50 metres up the road if you need fast food - or a coffee to go!!!

          There are no tea or coffee making facilities in this room. There was a small bar fridge, but we couldn't work out how to make it operate.

          Breakfast and free WiFi are included in the price. But you should also be aware that when you check out, each guest needs to pay a city tax - 7 euros per person (I think this is regardless of the time you stay in the city - but I am just guessing on that. WE paid 28 euros for 4 people, for two nights).

          This hotel is an older place. There are lifts, but there are about 10 stairs to get to the front door, so probably not a good option if you are wheelchair bound. The beds were comfortable - the pillows as hard as rocks. The shower flooded the bathroom on a couple of occasions, until we surrounded the shower area with towels. The staff were friendly.

          But I think the big selling point here is the location. So close to everything that makes Florence unique.

          Very near the train station, this hotel was ideal for our arrival at the Florence airport and quick night in Firenze. We were a 10 minute walk to the center of town, but we had selected a room with a balcony and view of the Duomo which was perfect. All in all, I'd stay here again, especially if my trip involved a trip to the train station.

Even Mel had a glass and a half of the white and liked the food. There was plenty of food and wine and the only thing that stopped us was the need to keep moving on the tour. Our next town was a cute little hilltop village called San Gimignano. Completely walled in there were lots of ...

          It's Monday! Usually Mondays are terrible, but I can already tell today is going to be a GREAT day! Class starts tomorrow, welcome dinner tonight (free food), and skyping tonight! I'm so nervous for classes tomorrow, I have no idea what to expect! I'm now down to 12 credits though, so it shouldn't be too difficult trying to balance school with traveling the world ;)!

          Today we started early as we had to pick up a hire car from the airport. We were heading out for a day in Chianti. I have enough trouble keeping to the right side of the footpath, so Ken was tackling the big right hand drive.
          We caught a bus at the train station, which took us to the airport, then we found we had to get on a shuttle bus to the hire car yard. We finally got under way with the iPad as our GPS. We were lost for a while trying to get ...

          Next stop was Florence Italy. The train ride there was a dreary 12 hours of getting on multiple trains to get from France to Italy. My first layover was a few hours in Switzerland. I had an awkward lunch at an Asian restaurant and then tried to buy tea at the train station only to find that I needed francs and converting would be silly for the two hours I was there. Without caffeine I slept on the train to Milano though occasionally I would awake to the most beautiful scenery I've ...
