La hotelería es amplia,...

by fga

La hotelería es amplia, variada y para todos los presupuestos. Desde deslumbrantes establecimientos 5 estrellas como el Excelsior, hasta pensiones y albergues muy económicos. Una variante son los edificios históricos y mansiones situados en las colinas de los alrededores. Uno de ellos es el Grand Hotel Villa Cora.

Best Places to stay while in Florence, Milan and Venice

by Mktggirl

Hello Fellow Italy Travelers!
I am very excited to be taking my first trip to Italy and will be going to Rome (3-4 nights) Florence (2 nights) Venice (1-2 nights) and Milan (2 Nights). We are staying at Exedra in Rome, but have not made accomodations for the other three cities. We were thinking of staying at LeMeridian in Milan...just because we're club members. Any suggestions for the Florence, Milan and Venice areas? We want to stay somewhere luxurious and interesting...but not a standard hotel chain like the Marriott. Also, it would be fabulous to mix the styles up a bit for the different cities. For example....maybe a castle in Venice..and a B&B near Florence. Upscale & romantic is a must! Any ideas would be appreciated.

My suggestion for Florence would be the Hotel Belvedere. It's not "in town" rather it is on the hill near the fort, but the service and proprietor are excellent. I'd go back in a second. It's not quite a B&B but the food in the dining room is excellent.

AND, if you do stay there, be certain to pet "Bang" the resident St. Bernard.

My suggestion for Venice would be the Best Western Amadeus.

I took this from my Venice page:

this hotel has a great location. It is near the Grand Canal. It is just a few minutes away from the rialto Bridge and the Piazza San Marco.

Unique Qualities:
Breakfast is included in the room rate.

Comparative Price:
less expensive than average

my suggestion for Florence is "I Barronci" a farmhouse in Chianti but still very close to the city. I think it is a great location to enjoy Florence and the Tuscan countryside at the same time. On the website you can have a virtual tour of the villa and see if it meets your standard

My suggestion for Florence is the Villa Cora between Porta Romana and Piazzale Michelangelo. It is central, yet set apart in its beautiful gardens with a magnificent view. Here is a link with pictures: Anthony Hopkins stays there, and there are some articles on the internet.

Travel Tips for Florence

Jogging in the Cradle of the Renaissance

by mariocibelli

If you are looking for a place to run, powerwalk or stroll without having to navigate oncoming tour groups mightier than the Russian army or stepping gingerly over the droppings from the horse carriages then take a 15 minute stroll down the river (Lungarno) to the Cascine Park. From Ponte Vecchio, walk down the riverside, passing the American Consulate (can't miss the barricades and bored policeman doing crosswords and chatting up cute girls) to the park.

As anywhere, only use the park during daylight hours as it can get shady after dusk.

Never-ending jewelry shops!

by Zlur about Ponte Vecchio

The Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge) is famous for all the jewelry shops all lined up near one another; originally these were butcher shops and stinky tanneries, but they used to throw away their scraps in the river hence polluting it, so they put a stop to this and now lots of gold can be found here! Cosimo I opted for the glittery stuff rather than gore. The choice is endless and I wouldn't know where to start from... good luck!

There's a bust in the middle of the bridge of Benvenuto Cellini, the most famous Florentine blacksmith, placed here in 1900. All sorts of jewelry; lovely stones, gold, silver in all shapes, forms and sizes.

Travel throughout Europe is...

by MooreTravels

Travel throughout Europe is simple, efficient and fairly inexpensive by Eurorail. Take it when you can.
They have a great bus system and you can get anywhere in the city by bus. We just happened this time to be driving a car and we parked the car in Fiesole and took the bus! I don't envy anyone trying to drive in this city. All for one and one for all.


by oja about Leonardo

This self-service restaurant in the heart of Florence fills your stomach on the cheap (you can stuff yourself senseless for 10 EUR) offering a huge choice of dishes. It's accordingly popular and you may wait a while before finding a spare table, although the latter are many. A downside is that pastas are a bit on the greasy side and can lie in your stomach for ages. Choose something lighter if you're sensitive. Pasta with pesto, seafood salad, aubergines in tomato sauce... and many more!
