Mallonee's Italian Notes
Florence through the years
I'll be adding notes on my favorite ways to drift through days. My travel dates are always March, April or May.
Hotel Mario's is where I perch. The 3 young brothers (owners) make this the best. The magic words are Leonardo, Federico, and Edoardo. It is reasonably priced, 2 blocks from the train station, and a straight shot to the duomo area.
I have stayed in several other hotels through the years which I can recommend, in case Hotel Mario's can't take you.
Food is my main goal. I have attended 3 week-long cooking schools, all of which were great fun, informative, and with unbelievable numbers of recipes and plates of food. The first trip I made in 2004 was a journey by myself to the first cooking school and to Florence. I had no idea it was the beginning of my Italy addiction and of friendships and of places that would become my annual retreat.
