Okay, so we'll be in Florence for 2 nights only - arriving by train from Venice on a Wednesday morning in mid-May, leaving very early Friday morning by train to Naples.
So we have 2 ( almost) full days in Florence and all we want to do is see Michelangelo's David, visit the graves of Michelangelo and Galileo, a trip to Pisa... and if time permits, take in a bit of the Uffizi.
I've read countless threads already :-(. I gather that staying near the train station is not necessary at all as Florence is so compact and hotels near the station, unlike in Rome, are not less expensive than others in the center ( centre).
Budget is not more than 100 euros per night for the 2 of us; will the Best Western Laurus fit the bill, so to speak? Haha !( See? I'm going mad). We will not be shopping or eating at expensive restaurants; we love to be near small cafes, trattorie where locals eat; like walking as much as we can but also like public transport ;-).
Any other hotel suggestions for someone with knee problems ( nothing major, but too many stairs will put paid to that knee sooner than later).
