TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Palazzo Vecchio Florence
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.

A quick climb to the top – only 414 steps so easy for us stair climbing veterans – for a spectacular view over the roof tops of Florence. The climb was steep and just like the climb inside St ...

So enough of where I've been and what I've done. On my way to see that priceless view upon Piazza Michaelangelo on Monday night, I came across an old guy parked on a motorcycle with his willy hanging out! Like full on everything! ...
... the Boboli Gardens are without a doubt one of the
finest examples in Italy in true Italian style, presenting
both natural and artificial elements and creating a veritable open-air museum.
