  • JK Place: To me, the hotel symbolizes La Dolce Vita chic, with rooms designed by Michele Bonan, the Florentine designer that is also behind JK Place in Capri.
  • Portrait Firenze: A hotel owned by Ferragamo, with rooms overlooking the Ponte Vecchio and a glamorous restaurant.
  • Villa San Michele: The villa is close to the city but it’s a great place for a relaxing getaway, with a pool and amazing gardens.
  • Villa Cora: Located in the hills just outside of the city, the villa is an elegant and classic building with a lot of history, as well as a great pool that makes it feel quite modern.

What To See

  • The Vasari Corridor: The corridor was used by the Medici family to get between the Pitti Palace and the Palazzo Vecchio, and features a collection of Rubens and Botticellis. You can book a private tour, and it is also close to the Boboli Gardens.
  • Museo Stibbert: It has an amazing collection of armours along with pieces from Japan.
  • Antico Setificio Fiorentino: They make textiles here with machines designed by Leonardo da Vinci. It is home to some truly fascinating archives.
  • Museo Bardini: This museum features Etruscan, Roman and medieval pieces.
