A Florentin villa, very imposing, extremely clean and beautiful, located in a green, wonderful residential area of Florence. The nuns are very friendly and helpful. Tasty breakfast, the best coffee I've ever had in Florence. The villa is quite close to Basilica San Miniato al Monte and Piazzale Michelangelo (15 minutes walk). Also, close to the other main tourist attractions...

If you're looking for a quiet retreat outside the frenetic pace of the main city center and are open to staying somewhere a little different than a hotel, I cannot recommend more highly the Instituto Suore Di Santa Elizabetta monastery. It's approximately a 25 minute walk into town (to the Uffizi) but there are plenty of buses if you prefer...

I recently spent a week in Florence and stayed at this convent. The room was excellent, well outfitted, clean and quiet. The breakfasts were also excellent. Wonderful coffee, and several other choices. The neighborhood is a bit removed from the frenetic pace of the city center, a feature that I loved. If the walk in town proves too much, there...

An imposing villa in Viale Michelangiolo (leafy residential area) near Ponte Niccolo, from where it takes 15 minutes by bus 23 to Santa Croce, Duomo, Santa Maria Novella or Stazione Termini. Or take bus D and in a few minutes you are by the Uffizzi, or if you prefer take a walk by the Arno and you will be in...

This convent is very sweet, clean, and well taken care of. Although it is far from the center of Florence, it is in a very residential and safe neighborhood, surrounded by beautiful villas. A couple of bus lines can take you to the center of town. I felt a bit cramped in our very small room. The bed was so...

Overall, I enjoyed my stay here very much! Great facilities and ambiance, and generally very comfortable. FEEL AND AMBIANCE: The convent is a gorgeous place, very majestic, with an aura of quiet and peace. For Catholics, you might be excited to know that there is a chapel with daily mass at 7:15am and that the Blessed Sacrament is always there...

I adored staying at this convent on a two-day, one night trip to Florence and wished I could have stayed longer. I first heard about Le Suore from friends who come to Florence often, and all of their words of praise were spot on. The convent is set in a peaceful, leafy green neighborhood not far from the heart of...

As part of a group of about 25 travelers, we stayed here two nights. Our room's windows opened out to the back and side courtyard, and behind them to a densely grown hillside. It was a welcome respite from all the motion and sounds of the city beyond the walls. In addition to the location and the neighborhood being so...

The grounds are lovely and the room was a generous size and very clean. If you are a light sleeper I would recommend you request a room towards the back, not facing Viale Michelangelo as the traffic is constant. I like sleeping with the windows open for fresh air and tour buses start early. It was nice to come back...

I stayed here during a business trip in December 2013. The house is a majestic villa from 18th. It is in a quiet area of the town (apparently an expensive part) on a height, not far from Piazale Michelangelo with great views on the city. There is a 30 min. walk to Piaza Duomo, mostly along the river. a taxi...

Staying in Piazzale Michelangelo

Neighbourhood Profile
Piazzale Michelangelo
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and breathtaking view of the entire city from above. During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides visitors with a serene space surrounded by the amazing landscape, better if accompanied by a fresh gelato from a local kiosk. During night, visitors will be dazzled by the warm lights of the capital of the Renaissance. Spend a second with the silent Romanesque beauty of the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte: the one that wishes good morning and good night to Florence!

“Rooms facing the back will probably be quieter as the front is quiet close to a main artery of the city.”
