... Pitti Palace but, decided to try the Giardino Bardini. The views looking back at historic old Florence were awesome. A dinner at a side walk cafe and onto the shuttle back to the Hilton. There were lot of people in Florence this week as they were having world championship bicycle races all week. These are many of the same riders that compete in the Tour d' France. Tomorrow ...
... which is another medieval village and a World Heritage Sight known for it's white wine. This was a beautiful Italian village with spectacular views of the Tuscan vineyards and it looks like it was the city of Bruscetta (massive fan). We finished the day in the Chianti region with nothing better than wine tasting in the vineyards, perfect way to end the day I reckon.
That wraps up Tuscany, we are in Rome at the moment and are having a ball!
... pasta, a tip from Sophie's sister that really paid off. Walking around some more we saw the Westin, a rooftop bar we wanted to go to, it began to rain, just like it did every night in rome so we headed back to the well air-conditioned hotel to wait for the rain to stop. When we noticed our picnic plans were through.... We had planned to picnic on top of Pizzale Michaelangelo's, but not ...
... I've had so far, followed by tirimisu for desert. From there we went to a kareoke bar where a few of the crew got up to sing but I just sang and danced in my seat. We walked back to the hotel around 11.30 and here I am writing my blog. We get a bit of a sleep in tomorrow then have a leather demo and walking tour before an afternoon of free time!! Goodnight all!

Moving further north I couldn't help noticing the beautiful window dressing of the Fendi and Gioggio Armani stores.
We stopped by various representations of renaissance architecture: circles and squares symbolizing earth and man.

Historical Traveler Reviews Albergotto Hotel Florence
Lovely staff, wonderful stay
My secretary booked Albergotto for my three-day work stay in Florence. I owe her a raise for that. The well located little hotel -that's exactly what albergotto means in Italian: little hotel- has the best location in town. My huge room was silent and confortable, with a terrific bathroom and shower. The staff however made the difference: they really care about your comfort, and if you at least try to say some Italian simple words like "buon giorno" and "grazie" they will show you how kind Italians can be. My work stay became a pleasant "soggiorno" in Florence, thanks to the restaurant hints they gave me. Albergotto will always be "my" hotel in Florence as it was composer Verdi's in the XIX century.

Hi folks - I am writing this review because I depended heavily on tripadvisor to make our Hotel determinations for our trip to Italy. I especially depended on the reviews linked to this Hotel. We only had a chance to stay one night at the Hotel Albergotto and we are sorry for that. We are grateful to the users of this website for recommending such a lovely Hotel in Florence. We paid $230 Euro, breakfast was included.
Very Nice and comfortable
Small hotel with very attentive staff. Hotel is clean and in an excellent location. No frills but very accomodating. Some of the rooms are small and would request larger room on next stay. All in all, a very pleasurable experience.
Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in July 2003. It was one of 4 hotels we stayed in during 18 days (and 4 cities) in Italy. The room was spotless, the bathroom clean and modern (despite having the typical Italian shower, which wasn't totally enclosed, allowing water to leak out and onto the floor.) The air wasn't very cold at night---luckily we were there right before the big heat wave, but it was still hot at night. Our room faced the back street and with the window closed it was quiet; noisy from the vespas if we opened the window. The breakfast was decent and the hotel staff very friendly, spoke English well and I'd stay there again. It seems that in order to get decent air in Italy, you'll need to shell out more than you thought; but a good night's sleep was worth it to me.
The hotel is not so bad in general, but the only one thread which connects it to 4* category is location, but one may consider it as a kind of disadvantage, as well as "Gucci" shop on the ground floor - you have to climb up to the elevator. Hotel "Albergotto" is really situated on a busy road, so don't forget to buy earplugs. The windows are absolutely not soundproof, although new. Breakfast is quite lousy, but it can be even worse in Italy. Bathroom facilities were not as nice as I expected, a little worn out and out fashioned, but clean. There were no hangers in our closet. The staff was friendly; I had to remind them about these circumstances twice only. The cleaning maid was also doing her best. Every evening I tried to get rid of the disgusting dirty mat by pushing it under the bed, every morning she pulled it out again.
Albergotto is lovely
The Hotel Albergotto is a lovely stay. We stayed there in late August 2003 - right at the end of the infamous heat wave. (We transfered to the Albergotto after an apalling night at the Brunelleschi.) The staff was extremely friendly, the rooms were clean, modern, and (best of all) well air-conditioned. (The only trick was that the AC cut off at 1am every night by govt. mandate - no fault of the hotel's.) Breakfast is standard but fine - plus you're within 3 minutes' walking distance of some truly superb cappucinos in the main square. All in all, this hotel is wonderful and well worth the money.
