Step inside to a refined nautical-style interior interspersed with traditional features and Renaissance art, with an opulent living room suspended over the river. Suites are themed in the style of Italian artists, such as Venna or Francesconi, and are the height of elegance with black marble worktops and plush blue furnishings. Indulge in an executive floor suite, though, and you'll enjoy use of two terraces and sprawling spaces alongside wonderful vistas of Florence.
The onsite Michelin-starred restaurant is, unsurprisingly, one of the main draws, perched right on the banks of the river Arno by the Ponte Vecchio bridge alongside such delights as blue cheese gnocchi, wild boar ravioli and grilled lamb with chorizo, complemented, naturally, by an extensive, world-class wine list. The indulgences continue in the lounge bar, the perfect place for pre or post-dinner drinks, or for something extra special, private terraces can be booked by the river for a romantic evening of indulgences.
Step outside and Florence’s delights await, from the world-famous Duomo's frescoed ceilings to the intimate boutiques that line the streets. Explore on foot, take a boat trip on the Arno or discover works of art by the likes of Michelangelo and Picasso in the countless museums that dot the city.
