|Subject: Re: Italy honeymoon info|
While I have never stayed there, the Santa Chiara Hotel looks like a very
nice three star. It is very close to where I usually stay in Roma so we pass
by it quite often and have taken a tour of it. It is very well-located as it
is just in back of the Pantheon. From this location it is quite easy to walk
to many of the famous monuments and sites in Roma.
For a honeymoon, I would recommend the Rafael which is a hundred yards from the Piazza Navona. This is probably a better grade than a three or four star however.
In Firenze I would look into the David which is located across the Arno adjacent to Piazzale Michelangelo. The famous photograph of Firenze with the Duomo in the center of the picture no doubt was taken from there. The David is a three-star and is in very easy walking distance to all the monuments, etc. in Firenze.
By the way, what is your budget for a hotel?
