  • The villa is always my destination when I visit Florence . The gardens are my inspiration. T h e most beautiful Gardens and immaculately maintained of all the gardens I have visited throughout Italy. The villa's interior is a vision of beauty and timelessness. New York university has maintained the vision and passion Harold Acton and his wife Hortence created, in honoring the past as well as embracing the future with culture art and humanity.

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.
