From crowded town squares, to tiny, tucked-away bakeries, art galleries to high-end fashion boutiques, the stunning city of Florence has it all.
And anyone wanting to enjoy everything this Jewel of the Renaissance has to offer could do no better than to choose the historic Four Seasons Hotel Firenze as a luxurious base.
Set amid one of the largest private gardens in the city, bordered by an ornate villa and Renaissance palazzo, the hotel has 69 opulent guest rooms in the Palazzo della Gherardesca and La Villa, along with 44 beautiful suites. The suites blend modernity with history to striking effect, featuring original frescoes, friezes and hand-painted sculptures.
Signature Four Seasons service is on hand for all guests, who can enhance their stay with in-room spa options including hair styling, pedicure and manicure, while the hotel’s own luxury spa offers 10 treatment rooms – including one double and one double VIP suite – and signature treatments such as a Chianti wine massage! It also has an outdoor pool, whirlpool, steam room and relaxation lounge to add even further to the experience, as well as a fitness centre where guests can work alone or with a personal trainer, or try private yoga classes.
Families can be accommodated in connecting rooms and/or suites, rooms for non-smokers are available, as are wheelchair-accessible rooms and, for a little extra extravagance, butler service is available in La Villa.
Dining at the Four Seasons Firenze is memorable, whether it’s a romantic dinner for two, Mediterranean salads and sandwiches served poolside, or the fabulously indulgent tasting menu created by the hotel’s executive chef at the Michelin-starred Il Palagio restaurant.
