Most popular areas in Florence for 5-star hotels

In the heart of Florence’s historic city center – around the 15th-century Florence Cathedral, crowned by an earthy-red Renaissance dome – you’ll find a smattering of stately 5-star hotels. There are also a few 5-star havens speckled in the winding cobbled streets of the Santa Maria Novella neighborhood, very slightly northwest of here. Some distance south of the Arno River – a mythic, shimmering-blue body of water that cuts the city in two – you’ll find a handful of rustic villa-style 5-star retreats.

Top 5-star hotels in Florence

The Four Seasons Hotels Firenze is a fabulous 5-star getaway, full of fountain-clad courtyards, Neo-Classical fittings, and vast guestrooms kitted out in chandeliers. Here, you can also enjoy a full-service spa. The Villa Cora is a luxury villa retreat – the regal guestrooms come with 4-poster beds and gilt-edged wooden furniture, while the wider villa boasts a rooftop terrace and outdoor pool. The Helvetia & Bristol Firenze is a ritzy 5-star central hotel, complete with a fine dining restaurant, valet parking, and town car service.

Where to find the best restaurants in Florence

The Santa Croce neighborhood in central Florence – near the Neo-Gothic Santa Croce cathedral – is home to the city’s finest traditional restaurants. Dine on crostini and liver pate, matched by fine vintage wine. In the opposite end of the center, near the Basilica of Saint Maria Novella, discover a handful of exclusive terrace restaurants, which provide fine dining with sweeping views across the city’s red tiled roofs, domes, and campaniles. On the Arno’s sun-dappled southern bank, near the Terzo Giardino, you’ll find upscale seafood restaurants.

The most popular things to do in Florence

There’s no shortage of museums, galleries, and historic architecture to see in Florence. Begin at the Florence Cathedral, a masterpiece of Medieval architectural design. Its white, green, and red marble facade is inlaid with flower shaped windows and statuettes, while the rear end of the structure is topped by the towering drum-shaped Duomo. Lovers of fine art can’t miss the riverfront Uffizi Gallery, a vast 16th-century complex of rolling corridors and airy halls containing masterworks by Da Vinci, Botticelli, and Rembrandt. The Accademia Gallery complements the Uffizi – this 18th-century museum houses Michelangelo’s David, an immaculate, marble statue of the biblical hero David. Shoppers, meanwhile, can splurge along the Ponte Vecchio – a Medieval arch bridge stretching over the glimmering Arno, lined with fine jewelry stores.

Best ways to get around Florence

It’s convenient, easy, and exciting to see Florence’s central city area by walking – the ancient labyrinth-like streets and sudden sun-struck piazzas don’t lend themselves to cars, but reward the traveller on foot. Outside of the historic core, you can make use of Florence’s abundant taxicabs – these are best booked in advance from your hotel, museum, or restaurant. For a stress free mode of city transport, many 5-star Florence hotels offer limo and town car services.
