A lovely b&b in an ideal location. It always felt like coming home -- to quiet and cool -- after long days of seeing the sights in Florence. The room was lovely, the location ideal, and the friendly, caring service was outstanding. Thanks to both of the office staff for reservations and directions and suggestions, but especially to Virgilio who...

Spent 3 nights here in September and could not be more pleased. I stayed in the Lorenzo apt. A large room with a view over piazza della Signoria. The location is no more than a 10 minutes away from most major attractions. The room was like a small apartment with a small kitchen and eating area separate from the living...

I stayed at the B & B for 9 nights and was placed into the smallest single room which did not have a kettle, refrigerator, table, etc. My room was in the corner, small, and oddly shaped. However, the room next to mine,...

We stayed for three nights in the two-bedroom Michelangelo suite. Our friends had a room with a window on the side street, while our room had kitchen facilities and two windows looking out over the piazza. What a view and atmosphere! The piazza was busy with people during the day and evening. The restaurant below our window closed by 10...

Casa Del Garbo is in the heart of Florence. Open your windows and view the Piazza della Signoria, the Uffizi, the statue of David - two blocks from the Duomo.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
