Florence,the cradle of Renaissance
Florence, a timeless city away from fashions. Florence, perfect city, cradle of Italian Renaissance and home to the great poets Dante and Petrarch. Florence is a city to visit at least once in a lifetime or to return to and be perpetually enchanted.
Starting from Grand Hotel Duomo in Pisa, you can organise a pleasant day trip to the Tuscan capital, setting your alarm clock early in the morning so you can enjoy breakfast at the hotel. Florence is about one hour from Pisa and is easy to reach by train or bus. And when you return in the evening, there will be enough time to end your day with an aperitif on the terrace overlooking the Tower and then dine in our restaurant.

Surrounded by the ancient Grand Ducal Gardens, the Boboli Gardens, an example of Italian gardens, embellished with grottoes, fountains, lawns and paths. A pleasant place in the heart of Florence.
