... stick shift all the way out of Rome. We drove up through Italy through mountains and past countless vineyards and farms. The four of us stopped in Sienna which was beautiful, we had lunch and then went to the most amazing cathedral I have ever seen in my life. The inside of the cathedral in Sienna looks like something out of Alica and Wonderland I think. It's all black and white stripped and ever little detail is unreal. The pictures once again just can't do it ...
... There was no chance on our timetable so we missed Giotto (Duomo), Academia (David), Uffitzi.I spent the day with Jordan again. We seem to work well with what we want to see. Pizza and gelato for lunch was amazing, even better than our tuscan dinner, which I wasn’t really that impressed with. Maybe Australian food culture is so permeated with Italian flavours that this was not that new or impressive.The city hall: Palazzo Vecchio boasts having been the home to ...
... and see if we could have a drink.
This place was amazing, it looked like it was built for Royalty with marble stairs and leather furniture and flowers all over the place. It was quite majestic. I wondered how much the drinks might be but figured they couldn’t be worse than Monte Carlo so may as well relax.
The porter showed us up to the lounge where we made ourselves comfortable in these huge, high-backed leather lounges and ordered our drinks. Witek and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Privilege Florence
Its a Priviledge
This Hotel is just getting better all the time, they now have a tea and coffee tray in the rooms which is great and very unusual for Italian hotels. Fluffy toweling robes, monogramed slippers and the nicest staff ever. 10-15mins Flat walking along the River Arno to the Ponte Vechio and a great breakfast. We were sad to leave and will be back again.
Excellent stay at Hotel Privilege
My husband and I visited Florence for the first time in July, 2005. We very much enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Privilege. The couple that operated the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The room and bed were confortable. It was about a 15 minute walk to the city center, but we did not mind the walk because the city is so beautiful. We stayed there in July which is typically very hot and our room air conditioner did not cool off quite to American standards, but was still confortable. We would stay there again and would certainly recommend the hotel.
We loved this hotel! The place in general was average but our room was gorgeous (just down from reception). It was spacious, with a tv, a sofa and air con in there! Although we would have liked a view of the river Arno but we didn't get one. The bathroom was lovely and big with lots of towels and the bed was very comfy! It was in a great location too by the river, which made a nice walk at the end of a day.
We had wonderful time at the hotel really. Fornt desk gentleman is funny, friendly and kind. He helped to search our next destination(siena). In the morning he prepared breakfast which was the most fabulous breakfast in our three weeks trip in Italy. Room is big and clean. We will definitely stay the Hotel when we visit Florence again.
Hotel Privilege, what a privilege
The hotel was great. I had the best time there. The room service was wonderful!! And its within walking distance of EVERYTHING. It's also right in front of the river. Very Nice
