... photos. We continued to the river Arno and the Ponte Vecchio where I was drawn like a bee to flowers, to the pretty pretty jewellery on display at the shops on the bridge. So many pretty pieces of fine jewellery! I could go nuts here, good thing I left my credit card at the hotel. We then went to the tourist info to book a tour to the Chianti wine region and Siena tomorrow, and received information on how to make an ...
... Tuscany. We took to the streets and tried to find a couple of restaurants on trip adviser but to no avail, they were either fully booked or impossible to find. We settled on a restaurant the TA (trip adviser) suggested as pretty good and ordered a mixed grill between Jose and myself. Not only was the wine like water (never tasted anything so tasteless , I think it was watered down),the service horribly slow in a empty restaurant, the mixed grill was very average, no flavoring or ...
Yesterday we the gave us a tour of part of the city as well as took us to the central market where we learned to buy meat and cheeses the local way, after getting out goods they took us back to the art studio where we had a "picnic lunch". We got salami, ham and some cheese-- no idea what it was-- The study seems pretty nice, they have a jewelry making studio as well as screen printing-- to bad we can't take those classes ...
... where all the sewage must go for the city. I think it grossed him out a little. I thought it seemed like a coating of Disneyworld was applied over its authentic age. The city seemed to be on sale. And why not, all of the tourists are buying. And there were plenty. Packed. From nut to butt, people. Apparently today was Italy's Independence Day. Independence from who, I don't know. But this meant a packed Venezia. Jared stayed in awe and thought ...
We set our alarm for 9am thinking we would never need it... I guess no sleep the night before & jet lag really knocks you out!
We were to be out of the room by 10:00 and we had envisioned ourselves having had some sort of Italian cappuccino and croissant by the time we moved out of our room... no matter. We packed up quickly and left our backpacks in the library there at the convent. We would enjoy a full day in Venice before returning to pick up our things and head to ...

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.
