Two nights in Florence
Posted Nov 17, 2016
We avoided the ZTL penalties for driving in the city centre by parking at a metro station outside the centre and taking the metro to the central station- hotel is across the road- bit of a pain, but Florence is notorious -even in Italy- for their traffic fines. Don`t let the location near the strain station put you off. We had no bother here, and it seemed busy with a good atmosphere even into the small hours.
Hotel is pretty good for the money. Staff are courteous, rooms are fine and clean without being huge, and shower and toilet were good. Breakfast is also good with a fine variety of choice. Never did find a bit of toast large enough to do justice to the industrial sized tub of Nutella sitting near the coffee, with a machete sized palette knife inside it though! A fine choice for a short stay in the city.
