Marco and Roberto’s Hotel Giglio lived up to its Tripadvisor hype, and then some! By way of background, my husband and I spent our first three nights in Tuscany in the small town of Fiesole, on a hilltop about seven miles outside of--and overlooking--Florence. We are not city people, and wanted to have a quieter experience in the evenings for...

This was a great base for sightseeing in Florence. Everything was walkable though there were buses too. The chap on reception was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and had some great tips for sights and restaurants, with 10% discount at several nearby. The buffet breakfast made a good start to the day.

This hotel is rated a three star but has a five star staff! The only draw back, if you are at all fragile, is the walk up to the second floor to get into the hotel. Other than that, the entire hotel is spotlessly clean, the breakfast far beyond my expectations and the staff and owners (who are onsight constantly)...

Until the Hotel Giglio, I had never experienced such warm hospitality and kindness when staying at a hotel. Mere words just don’t do justice to the wonderful atmosphere and family-feeling the owners and staff manage to create. The way in which they embrace their guests is unparalleled. Our room was spotless and the bathroom was better equiped and more modern...

Hotel giglio is a perfect base for a short break in Florence. The staff could not have been more helpful. They were able to reserve us Uffizzi tickets at the last minute on a grey day.

My wife and I both agreed that the Giglio was by far our favorite hotel during a leisure trip to Italy. Our trip started in Rome and ended in Florence with the Giglio being the perfect place to unwind from both the excitement and craziness of Rome before returning home. Is it a five star luxury hotel? NO. Is it...

The brothers who own the place were extremely nice. They helped us reserve a tour to go around Tuscany. One of them even dropped us at the station so that we can get there on time to catch our tour bus. And did the same again when we were checking out and leaving Florence. We liked the fact that the...

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
