I have always enjoyed traveling, even if it meant sleeping in a tent when I was younger. I prefer hotels and cruise cabins now, but the motivation is the same...an adventure waiting to happen. Sometimes you will find me traveling with my husband and/or family. Sometimes I will travel alone, and sometimes I will travel with friends. I hope you find it entertaining to keep up to date with me as I explore the world around me. Warning...I like to take pictures of food so don't read if you're hungry. More adventures await...see ya soon...Amy.

Il Guelfo Bianco: Florence, Italy

located outside of our door

our room was like a little suite with a sitting area

beautiful wardrobe

toilet and bidet

shower/tub combo with adequate glass to avoid splashing

nice herbal amenities

lovely turquoise breakfast room

this artwork on the back wall was intriguing

I wished I could tuck these in my pocket and take them home...so cute!
I found this little gem on TripAdvisor and had read that it wasn't far from the train station. It was about the same as we walked in Venice, only this time we were walking in the rain! It is about 6/10 mile from the train station and located within about a 20 minute walking distance from everything! There are many really good restaurants located close by that were recommended by the hotel. This hotel is very charming. It is an old hotel in character with each room retaining the character unique to it. The beds were very comfortable and our room had a separate seating area with a couch, desk and beautiful old wardrobe. The air conditioning worked really well and there was plenty of hot water. The buffet breakfast was included in our rate and we ate in a beautiful light turquoise blue room downstairs. The breakfast was the usual european fare but there were no hot items on this buffet. Regardless what was served was fresh and delicious. Cappuccinos and coffee were served on request by an attendant. Our stay at the Il Guelfo was very pleasant and peaceful.
