Loved the location of this once family residence. It's a block or so from the US Consulate along the Arnos River. Views of the Pointe Vecchio from the window! The owners are incredibly helpful and generous. Complimentary wine and free water. An incredible espresso machine in the room, too. But what made this room the most favorite of our trip,... More

Good location to see Florence. We were a bit disappointed to be moved from one room to another due to some mixup with their booking. The first room was superior to the one we were put in for the last night, so it coloured our stay. Not as good mattress or pillows etc . However it is clean and the... More

We loved the Vespucci. The location is terrific -- on the river (our room with balcony fronting it) yet only a stroll from the main shopping streets and most of the historical sites you are likely to visit. Another advantage is that if you walk anywhere west of here you are out of the main tourist areas and can find... More

Our family of five decided to go to Florence on short notice and stayed in this beautiful and welcoming place. The owner and his staff are personable and professional; the facilities are spotless with ample space in the rooms and bathrooms. Highly recommend.

This hotel is a lovely little Italian get-away. I see that some people (in the reviews) were not satisfied with their stay. In response to that, I think it is important to remember that this is not America. Expectations about customer service and luxury must be adjusted. But I have been traveling Italy for the past two weeks and this... More

Our stay at Residenza Vespucci was, unfortunately challenging. I had booked 3 of the same room and paid in full at time of booking in January. We were booked for 2 nights in May. On arrival we were informed that the hotel had oversubscribed and didn’t have one of my 3 rooms available. The hotel owner/manager Francesco tried to be... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
