Best Hotels with River Views in Florence!

Florence lies in the Tuscany region of Italy, & to me: it’s about 100X more romantic than Paris!  Last year, I met a friend in Paris, then continued onto Italy.  And Florence just BLEW me away, much more so than Paris.  Whether you’re traveling solo or with a lover, Florence will hold you in rapture: with its divine statues, the Duomo, Boticelli’s sumptuous artwork, its soaring cathedrals & hidden, romantic trattorias. But most of all: with its VIEWS!!!  The views in Florence are nearly impossible to beat ~ & the centerpiece of that view is the River Arno.  To plan the perfect Florentine vacation, here are the “Best Hotels with River Views in Florence, Italy!”
