  • Visiting these places is to meditate on the culture and religious models of those years and cannot rule out of considerations for availability and economic power of those who made possible the building and the construction of so extraordinary and costly to implement and, especially to maintain and manage. The frescoes, or what's left of Pontorno bear witness to this. See, in this respect of the carthusians though has nothing to do with it, the movie Le Confessioni di Roberto Andò a huge Toni Servillo and Daniel Auteuil

Where to stay in Florence

Variety is not a problem when deciding where to stay in Florence. The compact town center is packed with hotels, hostels, and small inns. The drawback of this upmarket central area is that even family-run B&Bs often cost as much as luxury hotels. For more affordable lodgings, explore the area outside the tourist-driven city center. Staying in one of the city's residential neighborhoods allows you to immerse yourself in the daily life of local Florentines. B&Bs and hotels outside the center offer private parking and spacious rooms, all within walking distance of the main tourist sites.
