    Our walking tour guide brought us here to explain Renaissance history. It is free to enter the ground floor and view the beauty of the architecture.

    We came to this place to have a rest and some snack. While sitting we were admiring the view of the church, whole piazza and the atmosphere of Florence. Occasionally we heard some street music and read about the place and it was a very pleasant experience.

    It is different with other churches. It is a historic library. This Library will be closed in lunch time. Go to take look at the stairs was designed by Michelangelo.

    Michelangelo’s David is here. You can walk all the way around him and see the slingshot thrown over his shoulder, the pin in his right hand where his right arm was repaired centuries ago and 5 partial Michelangelo statures unfinished, that show he felt the form was contained in the marble. No plaster models for him. One even shows the rough work with chisel and pick marks.

    The Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale or National Central Library of Florence is just that - a library. To enter during most hours you have to have a specific card that I expect only residents of Florence can apply for and obtain. For a couple of hours on Saturdays you may be able to book a tour, but it may be in mostly Italian depending on who the guide is. At one time, the library held a copy of every book published in Tuscany, but a flood in 1966 damaged approximately 1/3 of the library's collection. Many of these works were saved by the "Mud Angels" a team of volunteers that worked tirelessly to clean and dry all of the damaged works. It is the largest library in Italy and one of the most important in Europe and located along the banks of the Arno river. Unfortunately since we visited during a weekday, we were not able to enter and had to admire the exterior of the building rather than marvel at the works inside.

    The library is located in the centre of the city, so it is convenient to get there. During weekdays, there are many people learning there, but it is quiet. You needn't worrying being bothered. Wifi in the library is very fast and steady. Overall, it is a goog place to reading and learning.

    A place where British class and attitude meet American talent of organisation with Italian warmth and hospitality.
    Human touch and knowledge in the beautiful and multidimensional capital of Art. Thank you for this unforgettable experience!

    What a strange little airport for a mid-sized city! It feels a lot like NYC’s Port Authority bus station, but with a long forced walk through luxury duty free shops to get to the passenger area. The passenger area itself is small (maybe some of those shops could be repurposed?), and very much like a bus station, especially since the gates do not take you to the planes but rather to shuttle buses to the planes. That said, everything worked pretty efficiently to get us to our early morning flight.

    The property is good value for money, a bit dated and basic, but clean with friendly, helpful stuff. It is a walking distance from tourist landmarks. It is located in residence area with many great restaurants with great Italian food.

    Very expensive parking for cars in the neighborhood. So, if you can - do not come by car.

    We went to the tourism information office of Florence to have a few maps and ideas of what to do with a young child (6-year-old). Not only the man was very friendly, he could speak English and French fluently (which is not the case everywhere in touristic places in Florence). He also gave us a free guide of Florence for children in English of very good quality, and a map only for kids! Definitely go there if you want advice on what to do with kids.

    As an earlier reviewer said, this library takes effort to get into - in fact, it may be impossible if you don't speak Italian. Which we don't. When we showed up, the security guards just shook their heads at us and waved us away. Luckily for us, there was an Italian fellow outside the door, having a cigarette, and he asked us what we wanted. When we told him we wanted to see the library, he took us back in, spoke to the guards at length, and the next thing we knew, we were being issued guest passes. Thank you to our guardian angel. :) The library really is beautiful, of great interest to researchers and historians, I'm sure. I'm so glad we were able to see it. Good luck to all who try.

    I do not often experience such a feeling like the feeling I had when I entered the square of the duomo in Florence. It was mixed feeling but by time I got more and more joy by looking into the details of the place.
    Highly recommended
