The Hotel Balestri is located on one of the edge points of the ancient roman and medieval Florence. Two hundred years ago rose here a river-port to Pisa and to the sea. Here hang out clothes the workers of "Arte della Lana" (Art of Wool). In one of the sitting-rooms of the Hotel is a copy of a painting by Belotto that represents the "Porticciola" (small door on/anchorage) on the Arno, the stairs going down to the river and the washerwomen rinsing clothes.
