For a tremendous view of the Boboli Gardens, look no further than this exquisite pensione near the Ponte Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti. Simply furnished yet rather large rooms and a sunny breakfast room make this place cozy. In warm weather two flower-bedecked terraces are open; one has a stunning 360-degree view of Florence and provides a perfect spot to sip a glass of wine. During the warmer months, dinner can be had on that panoramic terrace, and you don't even have to
be a guest.
