We were on our honeymoon. And our guide wanted to do something special for us. And what they did was book as at this hotel which was next door to the other hotel where everyone in our group was staying. the hotel is beautiful and charming as most decent Italian hotels are. And the service was solid. But what was special about this place was not the room or any of that. It was was the jaw dropping view, day or night of the “Duomo” – or central basilica of Florence.
The view is so beautiful that we were shown it before we were shown to our room. You go up this tiny elevator, step off into a grapevine covered terrace belonging to the rooftop restaurant. And there you are, presiding over Florence.
Prices jump to almost double during high season but during low season a basic room can be had for less than 200 Euro. The view is worth the price.
