It was our first trip to Italy.. 6 of us.2 grandparents 2 children and 2 teenage grand-children... ..not for the faint-hearted …as the chain of events proved when Paolo made a dash to the train station with my grand-daughters hat that she left in her room when we checked out…
Then when my sons passport was left on top of a cupboard???? (he had a previous passport stolen in Indonesia) That phone call to my mobile just and the train pulled into Bologna.
Never in my well travelled years have I encountered such wonderful hoteliers who went way beyond the call of duty to get the passport onto a train to be picked up by us in Milan so we could ALL fly back to OZ.
So how did they find a passport on top of a cupboard soon after we had left… the hotel is scrupulously clean and well maintained. Paolo and his family were wonderful..we felt safe..our rooms were large and airy ..the continental breakfasts were much more than that…and the location was the very best. Via Cavour at a very reasonable price… just a short walk from the train station. All the little restaurants and bars right there.
But it was Paolo and his family at the hotel Casci who made our stay so special... the warm reception..the tour advice ..the friendly smiles …it all made Florence a city of wonder that we will cherish forever. I would love to say that we want to come back..maybe we would be too embarrassed..but I will recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to visit Florence
