Wining and dining
Although there’s no formal restaurant at the hotel, Florence is home to so many culinary delights that you won’t be short on somewhere to dine. Wherever you go, the Florentine steak (La Bistecca) is a must-try, especially as it’s less often found on the menu out in the Tuscan countryside.

Things to do
The hotel is part of the Lungarno Collection, so there’s an abundance of guided activities to fill your time with. From exploring the city through a lens with a Leica camera to a painting lesson on La Terrazza, there’s plenty to see and do, and lots for little ones too.

Anything else?
Hit the intimate spa after a day of exploring. This white-on-white haven celebrates true Florentine style with its use of Tuscan wood and stone. Re-charge with a range of treatments, from salt scrubs and bespoke massages to facials and manicures.
