Some of you may know from reading my past blogs , myself and three friends started the ABC holidays 9 years ago – this was our way of working round the Alphabet – a place , country - home or abroad.
This year we were at I – we chose Italy and the beautiful city of Florence.
Where do I start ? Firstly we were diverted to Pisa Airport due to weather in Florence and for us that was a bonus – we jumped in a taxi to see the leaning tower of Pisa before enjoying lunch and a bottle of wine – what a way to start our trip .
One hour from Pisa on the train you arrive in the centre of Florence and our hotel was walking distance Palazzo Castri 1874 – lovely hotel with a little spa area.
Saturday was our day to walk Florence and boy did we – we saw all the delights of this fabulous city – The Duomo , Ponte Vecchio bridge , Uffizi Gallery , Accademia , Basilica of Santa Croce , Pitti Palace and the Boboli Gardens.
We ate the best food , drank some wonderful cocktails and the most gorgeous wines and that’s not forgetting the shops – OMG I didn’t realise.
We did a quick site visit at the Hotel Brunelleschi and this hotel is set right in the centre of town , a Michelin star restaurant and some quirky rooms , truly an iconic hotel that has its own museum underneath its foundations.
To experience the magic of Florence and all it has to offer please get in touch and we can arrange a bespoke package to suit you.
