Subject: Re: Hotel in Firenze
Hi Paolo

Our favorite hotel in Florence is the Hermitage. The location couldn't be better, across the street from the Ponte Vecchio and around the corner from the Uffizi. The views from the rooftop terrace are terrific. I would not bother with the lower floor rooms or those overlooking the courtyard. But the upper floor rooms, the higher the better, with views of the Arno are fabulous. The continental breakfast is skimpy but it is served in a charming room or on the terrace. It can be quite pricey.

We have stayed at La Residenza but were very disappointed with the bare lightbulb in the center of our room The location, however, is excellent - on Via Tournabuoni, 8
