... of the city was a pleasure... Lots to see and take in. The shopping in Florence is amazing... Seriously.. If it is a leather handbag, shoes, clothes you want... A Florence shop is your one stop shop ;) I managed to pick myself up a lovely leather handbag from one of the oldest leather bag factories in the city. A nice reminder of my time here. We did a lot of walking and exploring in a Florence... Also took in ...
... leading us with purpose toward the Ponte Vecchio (The Golden Bridge) - a really neat bridge with tons of jewelry shops. It reminded me of the Rialto Bridge in Venice, actually! Starting to see similarities along our journey. After crossing over and walking a bit further, we decided to turn around and head back. In lieu of lunch, we stopped for gelato. Anthony had the usual, lemon, and I had a scoop of pistachio. This little Italian man ushered us to sit down (!) while we ate, ...
... a visit on its own. Florentines have been buried here for only a couple of centuries (indeed, many are still deposited here after death). The graves, therefore, are not so ancient as those in the historic district. However, many of these final resting places are elaborately festooned, and space limitations have resulted in a crowded cacophony of crypts.
As the sun set, I wandered back into Florence for ...

We did some shopping, perusing the streets, and visited a roof top café to look out at the entire city. Then we saw the Jersey Shore film crew and cars. Still no sightings of the lovely cast ...

Looking forward to our time at the beach ( Brenda had even packed her cossie ) so we headed in that direction ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Boccaccio Florence
Wonderful experience here!
Our family visited Florence in July of 2003 and had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Boccaccio. We highly recommend this hotel for families. We found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel was spotlessly clean. Our room was quiet and protected from street noise by combination windows and shutters. The air conditioning kept the room tempertature comfortable despite very hot July weather. The location was so convenient. The furnishings were beautiful. The breakfast was large and delicious. Extra amenities included an internet access point in the lobby, and a reservation service for the major museums. We definitely recommend this hotel and hope to return there ourselves one day!
Very nice place and great breakfast!
I stayed in the Boccaccio hotel for 2 nights in july 2003, the room was clean and nice (including the most important part: the bathroom). The location is really convenient since it's very close to the train station and most of the touristic attraccions , great price (100 Euros) and very nice breakfast, out of the common for the kind of "breakfasts" you get most of the hotels in Europe.
Great hotel for a great price.
I was actually booked in another hotel nearby Boccaccio hotel when I first arrived in Florence. The service offered was very poor especially considering the rate of the room. After asking around in a few hotels in the area, I decided to book at Boccaccio. I have to say I was highly impressed by the quality of service at Boccaccio Hotel. Not only was the staff very helpfull, but the rooms were very well maintained. We had AC (which is very important in the summer in florence), and the washroom was always clean. The hotel is also at a superb location in the heart of florence, and only a 5 minute walk from the train station. If you're looking for a good hotel in the heart of Florence, and don't want to pay a fortune for it, Boccaccio Hotel is the place to be. You will like it GUARANTEED!!
This is a super hotel
This is a super hotel located a few steps away from the train station and the bus station.It is a superb location for travellers using Florence as a base to explore Tuscany (Siena etc) using public transport.The hotel staff could not have been more helpful and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Very pleasant hotel
Great hotel. Close to Santa Maria Novella train station, easy to find. Off the main street, so pretty quiet. Beautiful flooring -- marble in the common areas, hardwood in the rooms. Very friendly staff, with good restaurant reccomendations. Room was tastefully decorated, and spacious by European standards (a bit small by American standards.) Good complimentary breakfast -- croissants, rolls, cereal and milk, yogurt, juices, and coffee. Easy walking distance to all the musuems and sites. No problems storing luggage for an afternoon after checkout. A very pleasant stay.
Friendly Helpful staff
We had a great stay here. The staff is the friendliest you will find in Italy. This hotel is very near the train station and it was an easy walk to all of the historic locations. This was a good value. We will stay here again.
GREAT STAY IN FIRENZE
We had a wonderful experience staying here. The reception staff coudn't have been more friendly - or helpful. For the most part everyone spoke better English than we did. Our room was spacious, very clean, and tastefully decorated. We appreciated the woodden floors and georgeous marble floors instead of the usual moquette. It's located near the Santa Maria Novella station and the city centre you can reach the main arts in few minutes walk. We spent a very pleasant stay in Boccaccio Hotel, we would recommend it to everyone.
