We were on our honeymoon, 13 years ago, when we found ourselves in Florence. We had not arranged anywhere to stay and I think my wife was having second thoughts about this feckless fool she had married. Luckily for us, we came across this hotel by complete accident and we were happy to find any old hotel that we could afford, at that stage. We were immediately charmed by the hotel and the staff. I remember how we flung open the shuttered windows in our antique room and disturbed a couple of white doves who promptly flew off over the tuscan roof tops and in to the sunset. What a view. It was my wife's birthday and there was a tap at the door. It was the extremely elderly porter who ushered us to the roof terrace where they surprised her with Prosecco and Parma ham. We often reminisce of our honeymoon and daydream about visiting Florence again one day in our future. Date visited: July 2001
