Free and exclusive tips!

Only you, after you have booked the rooms with us, will be able to benefit from the tips we collect and update for you regularly:

Imagine a nice dinner in a family-owned restaurant, where 10 euro buys you a three-course meal with a glass of wine?

Or a cappuccino at only 1.20 euro sitting down in one of the oldest cafes in Florence?

What about a hearty Panino with typical Tuscan salami and cheese at only 2.50 euro, so big you can hardly eat it?

Would you like to know how to avoid queues at uffizi in high-season or where to have the best view of Florence? No, it's not booking by the internet and it's not piazzale michelangelo. Come and see for yourselves!
