Florence, Tuscany Region, Italy
Florence is one of the cultural capitals of the world. It is a magical place of art and history. Most of the city's lovely churches are very well documented, but one rare treasure is St Mark's Anglican Church (Via Maggio 18). Easy to overlook from the outside, it houses an ornate and hauntingly beautiful chapel. The church is part of an old Medici Palace that was once owned by Machiavelli and later renovated in the neo-renaissance style.
Concerto Classico offers classical concerts and full-length operas here, but be sure to book ahead! www.concertoclassico.info

Don't walk to the top of the Cathedral with hangover. Bad idea.

Make sure you know the times for all the museums before you go! If you try to hit everything in one day you'll find out that some of the museums close before others.

La Residenza del Proconsolo Booking online allowed me to avail of a discount of nearly 75% on the standard room rate, for an amazing room, on the front of this 15th Century house. My window looked out on Il Duomo!

Yes, it can be noisy, as in any city centre, but once you keep the windows closed, and your air conditioning on for the hotter days, the sounds of the city should not distrub you.

Roberto and his staff were charming, friendly, informative and genuinely interested in ensuring their guests had a fabulous trip to Florence. In particular, his recommendation of places to eat were superb - and very reasonably priced in comparison to tourist eateries.

The house is located a few minutes walk from the Santa Maria Novelli train station, and all the major attractions seemed to be just around the corner!

One of the bonuses of the room, was a wonderful jacuzzi bath, to ease away the aches and pains of a day spent walking around the sights and sounds of Florence.

Breakfast is served in your room - a novel touch for anybody who is more used to staying in larger hotels. However, I found this to be a wonderful personal touch. And the coffee was divine!

All rooms are en-suite and most are non-smoking. My room not only had a jacuzzi bath, but a four poster bed, mini-bar, air-con, tv, telephone and a fireplace you could nearly stand into!

If you like your accommodation glitzy and new, and bright, this is not the place for you. However, if you want to experience a little bit of history and culture, and meet some wonderful people, then you couldn't choose a better spot.

Would not be suitable for wheelchair access.

Okay I took a train to Firenze from Pisa and itnis so beautiful the countryside view is wonderful and it's well worth buying some roasted chesnuts when you go to the centre of the town. Oh and as well take a horse and carriage ride around. New experiences and all.
