This little gem, in a quiet neighborhood, sits up against the hills with a lovely garden in the back. Florence is small enough to walk everywhere, if you're in good shape. The cobble stone streets can be pretty hard on the feet and knees, but there is a convenient bus line near the B&B. Donatella is charming and wonderfully helpful with directions and suggestions. We emailed ahead of our trip and she made reservations for us to visit the Academy and Ufizzi so it was easy for us to just pick up our tickets and walk in. That's a must as it's very crowded.
ALERT: Several steps up to front door, then several steps up to the room.
