So the 6 of us walk into this building, and the receptionist is behind a glass window about four feet above the floor. The building also houses some businesses on the first few floors. WHAT HAVE WE GOTTEN OURSELVES INTO?? But as soon as we are shown our rooms, we are smiling cheek to cheek. Rooms are large and views... More

Superb "window shopping" and a beautiful street. Incredibly clean and safe to walk along. Very central to all sights.

This was very close to our hotel and we happened upon it by chance. A lovely wide street with young trees in large terracotta pots. Many upmarket shops but friendly staff. Well lit at night and we took a walk along to a great restaurant - Obeca

Its the expensive shopping street of Florence. Beginning just on the Arno, at Ferragamo's, and continuing with many of the most famous Italian designers. Ferragamo's offers a little museum devoted to both shoes and the history of the area. Well worth visiting. Make sure you bring plenty of euro! The stores are very tempting. :)

Here's where to find your Prada, Fendi etc. Save the Queen shop is suprisingly large (2 floors). Penhaligons and other smart colognes available in l'Olfatorrio. Not the place I'd go for shoes-- so many other wonderful shops around Florence for that.

We stayed at a hotel on this via which begins at the at the Ferragamo store right on the water and next to the Ponte di Santa Trinita. This via begins at this point and continues several blocks straight. You cannot get lost. It is well lighted and safe. The via is beautiful cobble stoned gracing palazzo's like the Strozzi.... More

Florentine streets aren't really beautiful, but via de' Tornabuoni belongs to the nicest ones. You'll see ancient palaces, partially medieval. Apart of luxury shops there is a tiny wine bar named Procacci (in the no. 64) serving "panini tartufati" ("truffled sandwiches") and offering a good selection of Tuscan and Piedmontese wines.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
