Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Brunelleschi is one of the most iconic hotels in Florence. Its Pagliazza Tower can be dated back to the sixth century and the interior is still formed of exposed stone, wooden beams, large arched windows and vaulted ceilings. There’s an incredible history in these walls and you can learn all about it in the hotel’s private museum. It shows the painstaking reconstruction process that took place to uncover the Roman ruins of a Calidarium, before it became a hotel.

The interiors of this hotel are stunning and it's been awarded the Top Luxury Boutique Hotel in Europe for 2019 by TripAdvisor. Expect luxurious rooms with Baroque furnishings, local artwork and designer furniture. Upgrade to a Duomo view room for something really special. We love eating in the Tower Bar for a casual dinner or aperitivo. If you’re celebrating an occasion or just feel like spoiling yourself, head to the gourmet restaurant, Santa Elisabetta. It’s one of Florence's finest and is listed in the 2019 Michelin Guide. A choice of tasting menus, as well as the Gran Carte, are offered in an intimate setting with just seven tables.

Hotel Brunelleschi is perfectly located for exploring this great city. Your first port of call should be the Via dei Calzaiuoli, a pedestrianised district in the shadow of the Duomo. There’s both designer boutiques and local shops - some of which are run by family names dating back to the 15th century. Some fantastic cafes such as Sebatino, famed for their espressos, and ice cream shops such as Gelateria dei Neri are firm local favourites and for good reason - the limoncello sorbet and honeycomb ice cream from the latter are exceptional!

Transfer time: approx. 30 minutes by private car from Florence airport or approx. 1 hour 20 mins by bus & train or private car from Pisa airport.

The Tuscan capital of Florence is a city made by art lovers for art lovers. The Renaissance took its first steps here in the 15th century, painting the city with architectural wonders like the Palazzo Pitti and Uffizi Gallery.

Climb to the top of Florence Cathedral – Il Duomo – to admire a skyline sculpted from Gothic towers, domes and terracotta rooftops. That’s where you’ll also discover how small Florence is. Best explored by foot, you can easily wander the UNESCO-listed city centre in a day.

Had your fill of Michelangelos and da Vincis? It’s time to explore Florence’s other love – food. Finish off your day with a Florentine steak or settle down with a glass of Chianti sourced straight from the Tuscan countryside.
