Hotel Degli Orafi

Florence, Italy

Located in the heart of Florence, next to the world-renowned Uffizi Gallery, Hotel Degli Orafi makes a good base from which to explore this historic city. Piazza della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio and the Pitti Palace, as well as numerous well-respected Florentine restaurants, can all be reached on foot.

While the interior is rather modest, the rooms are bright and spacious and there's with a lovely vaulted breakfast room with a frescoed ceiling as well as a large roof terrace with an American bar and unsurpassed views of the Duomo and the river Arno. This bar is a great place to enjoy a refreshing drink and watch the sun set over the beautiful, red roofs of Florence.
