    Initially we noticed this hotel on a web site promoting last minute deals and it was offering a room including breakfast for €39 where every other hotel in the region was around 80 to 130 range. We decided not to book on line but just turn up and check it out first. On arrival we were pleased to find that there were still rooms available but the asking price now was €49 including breakfast. We did ask about the €39 deal but was politely told that was on line and last night , we tried to haggle but without joy. Still at €49 it was a good deal so we took two rooms between the four of us. The rooms were a good size not big but enough room to be comfortable. The bathrooms and linen were very clean and the heating was working well. A little too well in fact we turned down the room heating and opened the windows to cool the rooms down which made it very comfortable. The remainder of the hotel however was very warm and we found this uncomfortable. We were here in Early November so the outside temp was cool and the pool was not an option. There is a busy road at the front but with the double glazed windows the noise was not noticeable, until we opened the windows to cool the room, but at night no issues at all. The staff were all friendly and eager to help us, with directions and any other questions we had, the language barrier was not an issue, the hotel reception manager spoke very good English. Breakfast was very good offering a selections of cereals and breads cold meats cheese, pastries yogurts, fresh fruit and tea and coffee. Overall we were very happy write the hotel and its staff and would stay here again no problem. As for location it was a 20 minute walk up to the old city or a bus from outside the hotel for around €3 very well located.

    ... ve seen. The Palio horse race is staged around its perimeter - a tradition from medieval times, the race lasts about 75 seconds during which at least one horse falls on the treacherous ground and is trampled to death. So its quite a controversial spectacle today.

    We caught the end of a parade that crossed the Piazza, marching to the beat of drums, dressed in traditional costume and proudly waving the Sienan flag.

    ... Siena's most famous horse race (more on these later). Piazza del Campo is thought to be one of Europe's more beautiful and well-designed medieval squares. It was established before the 13th century and the fish-boned patterned cobbles were laid in the 14th century. Beautiful tall buildings surround the square and a tower stands at the South end. The tower (Torre del Mangia) serves as a ...

    So, now I'm in Florence. I was a bit worried at first about the hotel I booked (online from Venice), as it doesn't have a normal hotel entrance. You have to be buzzed in, like for apartments you see in American movies. But the inside is nice enough, and my room has a double bed, so it isn't too bad. The shower is really weird, though. There's ...

    ... I know, I know, but we all will kill for Gelati. The stuff is made for the gods. In fact I'm drooling right now simply thinking about it. Mmmm....Nutella Gelati, or maybe coconut, or perhaps a scoop of each, topped with cream, of course. 2. People watching. Although you won't be seeing any Medici members, Machiavelli, or Michelangelo strolling by, this city of the Renaissance still supports a cast of interesting characters to watch. Try finding a quiet piazza a bit ...

    Michaelangelo and the leaning tower of Pizza

    We caught the train to Florence and hopped off in Pisa to visit the leaning tower. Smaller than you imagine but certainly leaning, it was one of those icons we felt we should see. We snapped the obligatory photos, ate the obligatory pasta and jumped back on the train. Florence is so packed with tourists that you would hardly notice ...
