A recent trip to Florence brought me and my girlfriends to one of the most interesting spots in the city. The hotel Il Bargellino on Via Guelfa was recommended by friends and I also had raving reviews on trip advisor. It became an oasis. I was greeted by the owners Carmel and Pino when I checked in and the experience of being heard in my own language was truly a relief. It was like coming home. Carmel recommended a nearby restaurant, Trattoria Guelfa, which became our favorite. Thank God she reserved museums for us because the lines to buy tickets were impossible. The hotel was central to all of the sites. To my surprise wifi was included in the price. After long days of sightseeing it was time to relax on the terrace with "Yoghita" the neighbor's cat that randomly appears to entertain Leopoldo, Carmel and Pino's parrot. The room we had was very clean and the beds were comfortable.
