... a great way to spend a Sunday!
The Museum of San Marco was our final destination. Here we viewed great frescoes and paintings of the monks and Fra Angelico that lived in this monastery in the 15th century. Despite this being our second trip to Florence, there is much too much to see in just four days, but we did what we could and perhaps we'll return again someday? ...
... It made for a lovely evening chatting about so many different things. We then walked home via the markets area around San Lorenzo where the stall holders were all packing away their carts. It’s amazing to think that at 9pm they pack them away only to open them again in the morning.
As I was writing my blog I tried the internet access and found that a hotel near us was a hot spot for wifi, so we don't need to pay and we can access it whenever. Bonus!!
... teaching style. She speaks a lot of italian during the class and asks us questions and we have to answer in Italian. I'm definitly picking up on a lot of the language but I'm still not very good at it. A couple times at the end of class she took us to get gelato and we have to order in Italian. That's super easy though and even when I'm by myself I order in italian. It's fun to be able to apply it to every day life. Well I think that's all the new updates I have. Thanks for putting up with my venting ...
... some very expensive flavoured macaroons while Lyn had a slice of vanilla cream pie, must be because the Savoy is right opposite the shop. We chose not to pay the cover charge to eat outside at a table; when we last spent 1.8 euros on a tiramisu for Lyn the cover charge would have been 4 euros to eat it outside! We did eat it outside, just not a table with a plate.
Lyn just never gets lost, I tell him where I want to go and we gets there, this ...
It was out of Florence today on a Best of Tuscany day tour with Walkabout Florence. The plan? Siena, San Gimignono and Pisa. This is the first day tour I've done since Iceland, and boy it was nice to be shuttled around between all the sights and not have to worry about catching buses/trains or figuring out where things were. A good city break for sure, and honestly looked and felt more like what I thought Verona would be. So before the cat's out of the bag and the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews De Lanzi Florence
We stayed at the Hotel De Lanzi in July 2004. The hotel was clean and the rooms were lovely. The location was great. The hotel is right near the duomo and within walking distance of everything. The breakfast was very good. The service was excellent. We would stay here again.
Great hotel in a great location
We had booked 3 nights at another hotel which turned out to be horrible. We happened upon Hotel De Lanzi and thankfully, they had rooms available for our last 2 nights so we moved there. The difference between the hotels was like night and day! A previous user has noted that Hotel De Lanzi is expensive but for $25eu more than our previous hotel, our double room was WELL worth it - the location is unbeatable, the room clean and bright, the staff friendly and breakfast fairly good (no hot food). The showers are a bit small but servicable. I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay again in a heartbeat.
Would stay here again in a heartbeat
I'm surprised to find negative reviews of this hotel because I loved it. It's a *wonderful* location, half a block from the Campanile, which made it very convenient if we wanted to come back to use the bathroom or drop off our shopping bags. Our rooms were average sized for Italy, but very comfortable and nicely decorated. The bathrooms were a good size too, very clean and modern. The staff could not have been more kind and considerate! When we asked about how to get to Cinque Terre, the front desk hostess kindly looked up the train schedule and gave us advice. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to friends. Next time I'm in Florence, I'd definitely try to stay here.
Loved the hotel de lanzi
I arrived in Florence on April 5th,2004 and found my hotel very easily. It is centrally located in downtown Florence. Enza at the reception desk was extremely helpful,kind and curteous. My room was small but extremely clean and comfortable.It was well equiped with all that I may need. Every day began with a beautiful breakfast that included OJ coffee tea rolls meats cheese cereal and milk yogurts.etc. At all times the staff was helpful always giong out of their way to assist. Staying at the Hotel de Lanzi was so very convient. I would definitely stay at the de Lanzi again.
Don't believe all you read !
Tried to book a three night stay in December 2003, two days before travelling !, with sister hotel (based on Tripadvisor reviews) only to be told that hotel was closed, but I could be accomodated in the De' Lanzi. I cheked the reviews and was horrified but I needed an hotel near the centre (one son had a broken leg). So I risked it. I had two rooms a double for my wife and I and a triple for my three sons. None of the horror stories in your other reviews manifested themselves. The rooms were great (304 and 305) with fantastic views over the Duomo. The staff were courteous and helpful, breakfasts were as good as any and the rooms were clean with plenty of hot water. We will stay again.
This is a scam
This hotel is definitely on the expensive side... not to mention that its staff will attempt to take advantage of you. They also ripped me off because I had pre-booked a room for 3 people. When I arrived there, they gave me a room for 2 and said that I would have to pay an extra 89 euros for the 3rd person. However, our rooms were decent although there was an odor from the occupants that smoke in the building.
