A Renaissance Romance in the Heart of Florence
The Duomo, the Ponte Vecchio, Via de’ Tornabuoni… nowhere has neighbours like Hotel Savoy. It is supremely situated on the Piazza della Repubblica - the beating heart of Florence, amongst the city’s leading landmarks.
The hotel’s spacious suites marry Florentine heritage and contemporary style. The rooms are decorated with signature modern prints and Renaissance antiques. The style is definitively Tuscan and inspires a sense of intimacy and deep sophistication.
Arguably the most romantic city in Italy and may be much visited but it has plenty up its frescoed sleeve to keep delighting and surprising visit after visit. Gliding down the Arno in a barchetto (Florentine gondolier) must rank as one of the most visually lovely experiences anywhere. Gaze at the Gothic marble facade of Santa Maria Novella church, the oldest in the city before exploring the treasure chest of masterpieces inside.
A fifteen minute's walk from the piazza is the renowned and recently revamped Uffizi Gallery, the collection, bequeathed by the Medicis in 1743 on condition it never left Florence, is unrivalled, including a room brimming with Botticelli paintings and ancient Greek sculpture. The atmospheric rooftop cafe, with its hanging garden, was once the scene of musical evenings for the Medici clan.
Many more adventures await you in this jewel of a hotel in the centre of magical Florence.
