Locanda dei Poeti
Travel Blogs from Florence
Aujourd'hui, mercredi le 5 septembre 2012, nous avons fait le tour de Florence à pied. C'est une ville qui a encore de vieux remparts et quelques portes qui l'entouraient et permettaient d'entrer dans la ville. Nous sommes allés vers une des portes et nous avons admiré les alentours.
Florence est une belle ville avec plusieurs cafés, …
Surprise! On a le Wi-fi à Florence!
C'est nouveau au Locanda Dei Poeti depuis 2 mois.
Nous sommes arrivés en train à Florence à 13h40. Nous avions des billets en première classe c'était très confortable et nous avions même droit à un goûter gratuit pendant le trajet.

... that didn't stop Mom, Dad, Tom and me from walking around the whole city while CJ worked on some schoolwork. We had a late start because we putzed around the apartment a bit and Mom and Dad found a cool market where they bought us some food for the next few days. When we ventured out, we walked out to Ponte Vecchio again (can't get enough of that bridge!) and over to the other side, where we had lunch, wine, and the first cannoli of the trip. We continued along the Arno River ...
... we walked more than 400 stairs to the top of the tower for a spectacular view of the city. It hurt, but it was worth it.

After that, we stopped for some pizza and walked down to the Uffizi, the famous museum that houses Renaissance masterpieces by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, you know... Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Rafael. The line ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsLocanda dei Poeti Florence
We were at Locanda for 3 nights. Massimiliano was very nice and they gave us directions to many good restaurants and places to see. We would have liked to have breakfast at the B&B but we had to go to the caffé nearby for which we were given coupons at the Locanda Dei Poeti. It is not the same as a B&B where you can meet other guests and talk with the owner. Anyway, the location is great and it is a good place to stay.
