We stayed in May 2016 and February 2017, whilst visiting friends. The accommodation has a rustic feel about it. Bright spacious rooms, cool in the summer months yet warm in winter. In May Ryan and Nicholas and the adorable Fletcher looked after us, we didn't want for anything, Linda was away teaching. In February we had the great pleasure of...

A pleasure to stay in this beautifully restored pension with thoughtful hosts Linda and her sons Nicholas and Ryan. Clean, spacious, quiet rooms in warm colors, with high ceilings, restful views onto a green courtyard—a welcome refuge from downtown hustle and bustle, with opportunities for riverside walks and breakfast chats. Linda’s rich understanding of Florentine history and art another big...

We travelled as part of a large group (15) and when the villa we had booked through Trip Advisor was at capacity the owner suggested we use Al Canto for our additional people. What a fabulous suggestion! 45 steps from the villa, close to bus and train to Florence and the most incredible host! Linda consistently went above and beyond...

Our stay at Al Canto B&B was a big highlight of our trip to Italy. The family owned and operated home is absolutely beautiful and in a lovely neighborhood. The rooms are beautifully decorated, clean and modern, yet in an antique setting. The location was superb. A quiet place to come back to after a long day of touring. It...

I have stayed at Al Canto more than once and I find this delightful B&B perfect for my visits to Florence. The rooms are big and airy, the beds are super comfortable, the bathrooms clean with every amenity. Breakfast is plentiful and delicious. The large dining room is always open if one wants to make a cup of tea or...

A wonderful piece of tranquility to venture into Florence and the Tuscany region. Perfectly situated with a short bus ride into Florence and just a few blocks from the start of the infamous Chianti wine trail to Siena. Nick and Linda were friendly and so accommodating. If you get a chance, ask Linda about some pointers on art history before...

This beautiful B&B made for a wonderful and unique Tuscan experience. It was perfectly situated on the edge of downtown and close to the Tuscan hills, wine region and the cute town of Fiesole. It was very easy to get to the centre by a ten minute bus ride. The bus was only a couple of blocks from the apartment....

My wife and I spent a long weekend at Al Canto after a 2 week tour of Turin, Milan, Venice and Florence. Al Canto is an amazing family run B&B. The rooms are extremely spacious and clean. The entire complex has been beautifully renovated with exposed brick. There is a courtyard in the centre of the B&B which provides a...

Stayed here in July 2014 for our anniversary. Lovely b&b decor was lovely, clean and tidy. Couldn't ask for better service its a family run business which really cares. Really knowledgeable and helpful from where to buy bus tickets, booking tickets for us to popular attractions or great places for dinner within budget. A bit outside tyhhe town but don't...

At least that's the local folklore concerning this lovely B&B whose origins on this site date to the Middle Ages. Fear not travelers, having recently stayed for several nights we can assure you that the accommodations are vastly improved over what the poet must have experienced. The ground floor room in which we stayed was well appointed, comfortable and quiet,...
