Assisi is one of the places I will go back to in Italy. The hill town is incredible with nice views of the Umbria countryside. I would like to attend a retreat next time I go there!
... to a little gelato/bar on the side of the road
where we bought a bottle of TERRIBLE wine and carried it to our next
destination in dixie cups! It literally gave all of us chills down our
spine after every drink we took! I chugged mine to just get it over with. Just another tar wine we had...I dont know if I will every grow a taste for red wine. We then went to "The Fish Pub" where there was a special of 5 shots for 5 euros, which for those of you who

... she didn’t seem like she needed any help. When we got there, I paid him, but he specified that I pay out of the taxi at the window. When I turned away he said, “excuse me, I you only gave me 10 euros,” but I had definitely given him a 20 euro note and a 5 euro note because I didn’t have a 20 euro note, so my dad had to pull one out of his wallet to pay. The problem is that, at that point, there was no way to prove that I had given him a 20 euro ...
... Oz...so we spread the good word when possible. We earned our lunch at the first town by climbing the 33 switchback stairs (384 stairs) up to it. Then it was inward (and UPWARD)to the next town. Really got the heart pumping, but we were rewarded with great views at every turn. I was feeling like I was doing ok with the required effort, although I spent time carefully planning my steps over the difficult terrain. Then, of course, a teenage girl flew past me in her ...

Arriving in Lucca, I instantly knew I was in for something wonderful. The antiquated walls surrounding the town have been converted into a public park upon which you can ride a bike, or have a picnic in the shade of the trees lining the former fortress. I have attached a video I took while riding a bike along the walls as well. Also in Lucca, we climbed to the top of a medieval tower upon which oak trees ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Strozzi Palace Hotel Florence
So the rooms are modern, jacuzzi tubs, spacious, clean, bedets, the whole 9. We were on our honeymoon and they provided a free bottle of wine, as well as service with a smile. Great location within walking distance of everything, David, Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi... very handy, highly recommend!
What a wonderful hotel!
The Strozzi Palace was in a fantasic location. The staff was very personable and made you feel at home. Every morning we woke up to the sound of an accordian playing on the street corner below are window. It was wonderful! The vespas were a bit loud. But, where ever you go in Italy, the vespas are loud. The breakfast was included and servered in the lobby with a wide selection of pastries and meats for panninis. Would definitely stay there again.
Great hotel in the heart of the city
What a great find in Florence! Very close to all the major sight and reasonably priced. We got a deluxe double room which was very spacious and the hotel rooms were extremely clean. My only minor complaint was that given its central location, sometimes the noise from the streets below were relatively loud especially when party revellers were going home. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and really impressed me and my family. They helped in arranging tours and booking great restaurants in the city that are not tourist traps and serve way better food. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay at the Strozzi and will definitely stay here when we come back to Florence.
What a great hotel!
We stayed here May 8 & 9, 2004. Highly recommended!! Super location right in heart of central Florence. Lovely rooms, nice bath, really wonderful staff, good breakfast, great value for the money. We had a superior room--small but comfy. Consider spending more for a deluxe, to get more space. But you are not in your room much, anyway! Would definitely stay here again.
On the whole this hotel is ok. A superb location and a nice simple breakfast with very polite and friendly serving staff. However there were a few problems. On arrival, we booked through expedia, we were shown a room, on the 4th floor. The room would have struggled to be a 2 star. Not a 4 star room as promised most certainly.It was as dark as dark can be, even with lights on.Whilst it was clean, it reminded me of a student bed-sit. Mis-matched furniture and a bathroon as big as a postage stamp. However after voicing my concerns about the room we were moved to a beautiful 4 star room, with an Italian maple wood bed and wardrobe, plus a jacuzzi bath and gorgeous window drapes. Some difference. When booking in make sure you don't accept the 4th floor. It will make all the differnce to your stay.
Well placed hotel
The hotel is within 10 minutes walking from all the sights of Florence.
Be sure to book a deluxe room as the standard rooms are quite small The jaccuzi mentioned by the hotel is not a proper one,but jets from the side of the shower.Also,although the hotel claims to have a bar,it does not. We stayed from 18 to 21 March 2004,when the weather was unusually hot.The hotel does not switch on the air conditioning until late April.They say this is to comply with Florence anti-pollution laws;however,other establishments had theirs switched on. Overall I would recommend this hotel as it is so well placed.
Very nice hotel
First of all, a four star hotel in Europe is like a three star hotel in the US. That having been said, the service here is excellent. The front desk personel are very helpful and very friendly. The bellboy is very cute. Our room was beautiful. The staff was so accomodating. The days when we slept until the afternoon and the maid staff had left, the hotel would wait until we left and then would clean up our room for us while we were out. We felt so welcome here and had a great stay. The hotel is located in the middle of the historic center of Florence--only meters from the Duomo and a short 5 minute walk to the Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, and all the other sites in centeral Florence. We got a discounted rate and were very pleased with the value.
Central Firenze cracker
Central Firenze, all major sites within walking distance, especially the top end designer shops if you're into that sort of thing. The rooms were excellent and very well appointed with attention to details and a massive bed. The jacuzzi bath was a welcome treat after a day of culture and walking around firenze. The only down sides were the extra parking charge of 25 euros per day which was a real kicker at bill time as not mentioned at time of booking. The breakfast was a bit clinical (pre-packaged stuff), but edible. However, good value for money and we would stay again.
Having experienced problems at old hotels I found Strozzi Palace hotel which was new. The rooms were very big compared to most European hotels, very clean, and modern. Selected rooms have a jacuzzi as well and it was wonderful sitting in the tub after all the walking! The location was good too, close to the Piazza della Repubblica, but off the main street so it was quiet at night. It's located pretty much in the middle of the popular sightseeing places and you can walk everywhere. The only problem was that you have to go up a flight of stairs to get to the elevator which takes you to reception so if you have lots of luggage you'll need to go up to reception and get someone to help you with your bags. The breakfast room was small but the room was nice and the food was fine. I would definitely stay here again.
