No one will carry you and there is no lift. You must take the stairs. Only after reaching the top will you be rewarded with water and a spectacular view of Florence. A room with a view of the Arno is pleasant but it is worth putting in effort to see the city from above. Perhaps if Miss Honeychurch and Miss Bartlett had realized this, they would have been indifferent about their view of the courtyard at the Pension Bertolini.
