From the moment you step into your Firenze hotel, you’ll find yourself drawn into a living picture book of Italian history. It was in this stunning city that the Renaissance began and the works of its greatest masters are proudly displayed in such legendary galleries as the Galleria dell’Accademia and the Uffizi.
If you can draw yourself away from Michelangelo’s David and Botticelli’s Venus, the city streets are exquisitely preserved, with paved piazzas, intricate marble facades and grand palaces and churches adorned with frescoes and mosaics. A climb up the winding stairs to the top of the Duomo or Campanile affords stunning aerial views over the red rooftops of Firenze, with the river Arno flowing beyond.
As well as world-class historical attractions, guests at Firenze hotels can enjoy sophisticated shopping experiences. The historic Ponte Vecchio is clustered with jewellers’ shops, while boutiques across the city offer haute couture fashions and Tuscan leather items, handmade by artisans who have honed their trade over generations.
Before you retire to your hotel, Firenze offers the chance to indulge in some lavish dining, showcasing local seasonal ingredients, and accompanied by fine wines from the Tuscan hills.
