The staff is accomodating, friendly and goes out of their way to make sure things go well--including making reservations for the museum tours and special tours. We stayed in an apartment, with our...

A wonderful B&B in the center of Florence. The rooms are nicely sized, with high ceilings, and large well appointed bathrooms. The furnishings are comfortable and elegant in the Florentine tradition.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
