Florence - the capital of Tuscany, the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, its grand streets filled with churches and palaces; it was here that Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Raffaello, Dante, Machiavelli and countless others lived and worked.
Many masterpieces can be viewed within the countless museums and galleries crammed within the confines of the old town. The architecture of many of the buildings rivals the masterpieces that are within them, the Pitti Palace, Uffizi, and of course the Duomo with its stunning cupola. Straddling the river Arno - crossed by the amazing Ponte Vecchio, the city teems with a vibrancy and grandeur that rightfully makes it one of the most visited cities in the world.
It is here within the old town, only a short distance away from all of the major attractions and galleries, that Hotel Boccaccio is found. Situated between the river Arno and the church of Santa Maria Novella it is only a few minutes walk from the railway station, the piazza of the Duomo, the Uffizi and the romantic Ponte Vecchio.
