Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Alba Palace Florence
Nice little hotel
Good, central location, within walking distance from all of Florence's main sights. The rooms are small, but quiet and clean. The dining room staff could use a little friendliness assistance, but were okay. The desk staff was nice.
My husband and I stayed at the Alba in October, 2003. It was a short walk from the Florence Rail Station (but you may need to ask directions!) We found it conveniently located to the central area of the city and also the tour buses left from near the rail station. The room we occupied was not as small as eg in Paris and it contained a small fridge. There were restaurants closeby.

... Pisa yesterday and we are doing a day trip to Siena tomorrow. It was a chance for us to wander around the city at a leisurely pace, relax and enjoy our day in Florence.

... as you know it's like my favorite place). Dad had a great time here.
Today, Saturday September 19th, I woke up and went to breakfast at La Milkeria for crepes with Dad before he had to fly back home.

Roommates are still sleeping of course and I think I'll watch a movie! Ta ta for now, love and miss you all!!
... all uphill steps to get to the top and not just a 'walk'. My goodness I whined and moaned the whole time but we both got there in the end...I really wasn't expecting to see what I saw...it was so stunning. The view of Florence from this lookout was just so special. We both sat and admired the view for more than an hour. We were leaving for La Spezia in the morning so we had to make the most of it. Another wonderful city, Florence I'll be back to ...
... to do all that work with no mistakes. Or maybe there were, maybe that's why David's hands are so big!
Next stop was the Palazzo Medici Ricardo. When the Medici family made it big,in the 1400's Cosimo, built this house for the family. It has passed between the Medici family and the state several times, depending on the families state of grace. Eventually the Medici's sold it to the Ricardo family in 1659, who in turn sold it to the city of Florence in the 1800's. ...
... Very interesting how they put them together. No pics .......cuz they said so.....I should have snuck a few........cameras were okay in the museum.
Well It finished and we said goodbye to our new found friends. Almost bought a Duccati Zippo lighter....but just did not feel right...so passed. We troddled off to the bikes....and figured that Florence was our next destination......since it was close......So I made a route at the side of the road.....Off we ...
