    Academy Hostel has been the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. They provide "luxuries" like a complimentary towel, bedside table with cupboard and secure locker with its own very good lock. The hostel is secure and I never...More

    I stayed here fot 3 nights. The hostel is centrally located towards the city centre. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The only bad thing was the unavailability of a plug next to my bed so I could not charge my phone...More

    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
