This past weekend, I stayed at Le Tre Stanze in Florence, a small B&B on the top floor of a palazzo 100 feet from the Duomo. The location was ideal, just 10 minutes walk from the Accademia, Santa Croce, the Uffizi, and the Bargello. Le Tre Stanze means “three rooms”, each of which is elegantly decorated with antiques without being overbearing. Though the rooms and common areas are quite stately, the place felt more like a home than a museum. Our room was massive, just a bit smaller than my apartment in Rome, and had a double bed, a single bed, couch and lots of shelves and bureaus stacked with books, ceramics, and sculptures. A large window looked down onto a garden and let in lots of light, when it wasn’t raining, of course. Le Tre Stanze was the perfect retreat for a weekend escape to Florence.
