... station, which seemed surprising to me, as it was all breezy colonaded walkways and arches - not the utilitarian building you might expect. Anyway, the Borgello has many fantastic Renaissance statues, which did not disappoint.
After the Borgello, we went to the Uffizi gallery, full of Renaissance paintings: Titian, Raphael, Botticelli. So incredible.
Anyway dear friends, I must stop here. More later
... 8217;d hold her hand and they’d toddle from the side of the Duomo to the bench and back. Then she worked on the steps. But the steps were so high that they went up to her knees! So, she had to have a lot of help with those! She had the most beautiful brown eyes and she liked to smile! They stayed there almost as long as I was there, so I got to watch her for awhile. I just kept thinking, wow, she’s learning how to walk on medieval cobblestone right next to ...
he said his girlfriend left him three months ago. they have been together for more than 5 years. he taught her everything, even bought an apartment for her and her family to live together. the last words that girl said to her mother and him was: I want to live my own life. one month ago his friend told him "she lives with a rich man in zurich now"

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.
It is within walking distance of the Piazza Della Signoria but I would recommend getting a taxi to see Michelangelo's David (taxis are cheap). We found Florence to be the type of place where you don't mind walking everywhere because it is so beautiful and whenever you turn a corner there always seems to be something worth seeing there!
Florence really is a lovely place and my boyfriend and I did not mind walking around late at night as we felt quite safe compared to some other cities.
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
