Hotel Le Due Fontane is situated in the famous Renaissance Piazza ‘Santissima Annunziata’, overlooking the bronze works of Tacca and Giambologna. Within a short walk from here, you can reach the Duomo and many other wonderful and historic sights of interest in the city.
Film enthusiasts may recall that the Piazza ‘Santissima Annunziata’ was used as a filming location for ‘A Room with a View’, a film which featured many locations throughout Florence, in particular a scene where Miss Lavish and Lucy's Aunt stroll through the streets of Florence. They arrive at this magnificent piazza with the fine bronze equestrian statue (1608) of Grand Duke Ferdinando de 'Medici with the words "Buongiorno, buongiorno, we salute thee". The site is undoubtedly one of Florence's most beautiful, and one which has hardly changed appearance over the last few centuries and is virtually free of traffic.
Hotel Le Due Fontane is a cosy, family run hotel which sits at one side of the piazza with neat and tidy rooms and a good breakfast buffet. The hotel can assist you with parking (fees apply).
The tastefully furnished rooms all have air-conditioning, satellite TV, a telephone and en-suite bathroom with shower and/or bath. The reception, having been recently refurbished is inviting and comfortable, while the addition of a Gelateria or Ice cream parlour to the bar adds an extra dimension. From here you can pass through to the dining room where they serve a good hot and cold breakfast buffet to set you up for your day of sightseeing.
