Charming B&B in Florence! Donatella is an incredibly warm and generous hostess and an incredible cook! I met several others who have consistently stayed with her on several visits to Italy so clearly I'm not the only one who's discovered this gem! While it was hard to say goodbye to Florence it was even harder to say goodbye to what...

We had a wonderful experience at Donatella's B&B! We got the large room with two beds and a private bathroom on the top floor. It's a beautiful room with a cute balcony and nice view. Donatella went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and help us plan our sight-seeing adventures. She makes a delicious breakfast for you everyday....
