It was love at first sight when I saw the photo above of the Hotel Brunelleschi at a travel conference a few years ago. Since then I knew that I had to stay there if I ever made it to Florence. I finally got the opportunity this past April.
The room that caught my eye was a suite and of course the price was not in the budget so I booked my husband and I into an Executive room. When we checked-in, the front desk agent said that he had a surprise for us. He then asked us to follow him to our room which was the Pagaliazzo Suite!
Ponte Vecchio or "Old Bridge" is the oldest bridge in Florence. It was the only bridge that wasn't destroyed by the Germans in WWII. The shops on both sides were originally for butchers, today they house jewelers.
The best view of Florence is from Piazzale Michaelangelo. It was a bit of hike but so worth it!

I'll have more on my Italian Journey on my next newsletter. Ciao, Ciao for now
