The Hotel Casci is located in a Fourteenth Century Palace. This hotel has been in business since 1926 and is proud to be the first hotel in Florence providing hot and cold water in all rooms. There are 24 rooms some of which are triples and quads. They even have two quints, rooms with a children’s alcove. The hotel offers a buffet breakfast and does have a coffee shop. Their front desk runs 24/7 which is not the case of all the neighborhood hotels. The hotel address is Via Cavour 13, San Marco and the Hotel Casci website is www.hotelcasci.com
Hotel Il Guelfo Bianco.
The Il Guelfo Bianco is located in a Fifteenth Century building. One of its special features is a great collection of modern art. If you like the older stuff you need only stroll a bit to the Galleria dell’Accademia, which is home to Michelangelo’s David and a whole lot more. A whole range of rooms is available and you’ll enjoy the upscale restaurant featuring products from the family’s organic farm. The hotel address is Via Cavour 29, San Marco and the Il Guelfo Bianco website is www.ilguelfobianco.itAnd wherever you go and whatever you do, check out the fine Tuscany or other Italian wines.
Levi Reiss has authored or co-authored ten books on computers and the Internet, but to be honest, he would rather just drink fine Italian or other wine, accompanied by the right foods. He teaches classes in computers at an Ontario French-language community college. Visit his website www.travelitalytravel.com devoted to Italian travel with an accent on fine Italian wine and food. Visit his central wine website www.theworldwidewine.com with weekly reviews of $10 wine and columns devoted to various aspects of wine including wine and food, humor, trivia, organic and kosher wine and lots more.
