Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Ideally located just a five-minute walk from Piazza di Santa Maria Novella and the Basilica, Rivoli Boutique Hotel offers 50 years of excellent hospitality. This former 14th century Franciscan monastery is run by the warm and welcoming Caridi family. Their aim is to create a nostalgic Italian hotel which boasts original stone columns, coffered ceilings and spectacular arches and vaults that remain from its time as a monastery.

The enchanting and cosy atmosphere makes you feel instantly at home and the embellished and refined common areas such as the outdoor patio, with its blooming flowers and views of the surrounding colourful buildings, are perfect for kicking back with a book. Rooms here are spacious and sophisticated with relaxing hues of blue and gold and parquet flooring. After a long day of exploring the quaint, cobbled streets of this beautiful city, why not head back and take a dip in the amply sized whirlpool nestled in the small garden patio or book a table at the resident restaurant 'Benedicta' which boasts three Michelin forks and will tantalize your palette with some of the finest Mediterranean and Tuscan cuisine Florence has to offer.

Florence

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.
