  • I attended a European conference at the Fortezza during a very hot July weekend. The aircon worked well, thank goodness, and there was plenty of space for the 1,000 attendees. Catering was abysmal - n...  more »

  • The Fortezza da Basso (fortress of Saint John the Baptist) is a fortification in the fourteenth-century walls of Florence. Surrounded by ring roads, falls in Firenze Fiera exhibition complex, the site of conventions, concerts and national and international initiatives. Choked by traffic and shipyards

  • It was closed during our visit. Fort is in really good condition. Would like to see what is on inside. But i snapped few photos of the wall.
  • Nice place especially for periodically events like the "Mostra dell'artigianato" which is held every year in April.
  • Fortezza da Basso hold every half year the Pitti Uomo fashion show which is pone of the biggest fashion show/trade in Europe and in the world as well. If you are a fashionista you have to go there during Pitti.
  • Nice place
  • Worth a visit and close to the station

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.
