Florence Luxury Hotels

Best areas in Florence for luxury hotels

Central Florence is flush with exclusive hotels ready to offer upscale accommodation for a supremely relaxing city break. The tightly packed central neighborhoods north of the shimmering river Arno are perfect for sightseers who want doorstep access to Florence’s architectural Renaissance landmarks and regal art galleries - the Uffizi and Duomo neighborhoods in particular sing with luxury hotels. For a slightly quieter and more residential atmosphere, stay in one of the luxury hotels in the leafy Palazzo Pitti neighborhood, south of the Arno.

Top luxury hotels in Florence

The Hotel Albani Firenze offers kingly accommodation conveniently located beside the city’s main train station. Here, enjoy enormous ensuite guestrooms, a 24-hour fitness center, and exclusive valet parking. The Firenze Number Nine Wellness Hotel lives up to its name – here, get pampered in a full-service spa, dine in the upscale in-house restaurant, and burn off excess energy at the modern fitness center. The Grand Hotel Cavour, meanwhile, dazzles with a rooftop terrace, flashy 24-hour business center, and enormous guestrooms kitted out with antique-style furniture.

Where to find the best fine dining in Florence

Florence’s fine dining local cuisine scene champions fresh, artisanal ingredients – and dishes come accompanied by vintage Tuscan wines. The central Santa Croce neighborhood is sprinkled with elite Florentine restaurants, serving traditional dishes like charcoal-grilled Tuscan steak. On the Arno’s southern bank, you’ll find a range of premier restaurants – many focusing on seafood cuisine – dotted from the Piazzale Michelangelo to the Palazzo Pitti. In the central Santa Maria Novella neighborhood, discover fine dining Florentine restaurants with rooftop terraces providing sweeping city views.

The most unique things to do in Florence

One of Florence’s crowning cultural relics is Michelangelo’s David, an epic, white-marble larger-than-life rendering of the biblical hero. For an exclusive viewing experience of this iconic sculpture, book a private tour of the Galleria dell’Accademia, where you can gaze at the statue, and other masterworks by the likes of Botticelli. Florence is surrounded by soft-sloping vineyards, golden cyprus-studded hills, and rolling valleys – truly appreciate this Tuscan landscape with a private hot air balloon tour. After a long day of sightseeing, there’s no better way to unwind than in one of the lavish luxury spas located in several Florence 5-star hotels. In the evening, culture vultures can book ritzy front row seats for a show at the Opera di Firenze, in the modern Nuovo Teatro dell Opera.

Best ways to get around Florence

Florence’s city center is easily explored on foot. The winding cobbled streets, lined with quaint cafés and small boutiques, and sun-struck piazzas are welcoming to pedestrians. To get around the wider city area, travel by taxicab – these are best booked in advance at your hotel or restaurant. For truly exclusive city transport, many of the luxury hotels in Florence offer town and limo car services — a perfect way to cruise back home after a night indulging in Florence’s rooftop restaurants and wine bars.
