Walking distance from attractions in central Florence

Map of Hotel Palazzo Dal Borgo Aprile

Hotel Palazzo Dal Borgo Aprile offers an advantageous location from which to explore Florence: It's a nine-minute walk from the Duomo and within a 15-minute walk of most other popular sights.

Florence is extremely pedestrian-friendly, and is one of Italy's most beautiful cities -- it's more compact, and less gritty, than Rome. The Duomo is the most iconic sight here, but other popular attractions include Michelangelo's "David" at the Galleria dell'Accademia, the works of Botticelli and da Vinci at the Uffizi, and the Ponte Vecchio bridge, which dates back to the 1300s. The Piazza della Signora is a popular tourist hub, and many hotels are located near it.
