The family-run Hotel Cellai is part of a 19th century palazzo in central Florence. Each detail of the hotel's interior design has been carefully chosen, from the original works of art and the unique stand out antiques that have been mixed with a fresh contemporary style. The furnishings create an intimate mood and a comfortable base during your stay as you discover the beauties of Florence.

Hotel Cellai is in the perfect location for taking in all the sights that this Renaissance city has to offer. You don’t have to wander far through the cobbled city streets to pass by Michelangelo’s David or to see Brunelleschi’s magnificent dome atop the Duomo. Shop like a local in the San Lorenzo food market for Tuscan delicacies, located in the beautiful building designed by Giuseppe Mengoni, just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel.

The bedrooms are adorned with luxury fabrics, individually chosen antiques and period furniture with original photos, prints and paintings. Their traditional Italian vintage design combined with fresh and modern elements, provides guests with a pleasant refuge after a day of touring the incredible sights of Florence. End your day on the hotel's roof terrace. The flowered roof garden is the perfect place to enjoy a drink, with views of the rooftops all the way to the hills of Fiesole.

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.

Inghams operate a telephone Rep service in Florence.
