          Theres no doubt that the Westin Excelsior is grand and opulent - from the minute you walk in, its a sensory overload of decadence! The over the top grandeur continues into the rooms. Our room was gorgeously decorated and the bathroom was massive. The beds were the highlight though - they felt like they were made from real clouds!! So soft and cosy.

          The only criticisms I have is that despite its luxury, it is a mammoth hotel and felt quite impersonal. I'd spent the two previous nights up the Arno at Antica Torre which only has 11 rooms and the most personalised service you can imagine. I was also very annoyed that for the cost of The Westin Excelsior, they still charge and exorbitant amount for wifi access which should most definitely be free as it is in most other hotels charging a premium (in fact, even in cheap hotels and hostels you get free wifi).

          It's a beautiful hotel but for my money, I'd rather Antica Torre.

          A beautiful hotel once the home of Napoleans sister, a hotel for 100 years with great views of the Arno, a roof top restuarant which is heavenly. The ice coffee in the afternoon devine. Breakfast is well worth it and try the baked fish hmmmmm. The conseirge, Front Desk and bellmen are helpful and wonderfully knowledgable. The hotel is beautifully located for walking with lots of great little neighbourhood restaurants around.. Well wortth the stay!!

          I did thoroughly enjoy Florence, at least. I'm a little tired of the god-related art everywhere, so the hour-long wait to enter the Uffizi Gallery wasn't really worth it in my book. The obsessive fascination with Mary and baby Jesus was a little creepy even. How about painting some trees in a field for ...

          ... for a fews years now and thus the line was very long. Although there were about ten people working there so it went fast enough. I still prefered our Gelato pace in Roma but maybe i just grew fond of it (it was delicious though). It was a nice tour, i learnt a lot about wines as i was interested about trying to be more appreciative of wines. I believe i am slowely learning. This was our last day in italy, i am satisfied with my experience of Italy for sure. ...
