If you are visiting Italy, it is hard to beat Florence, a city of immense art, culture and history that also happens to be the gateway to Tuscany, Florence is far and away the art capital of Italy - Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, and Raphael all debuted here.
I stay in many Airbnb and hotels around Florence, because happens I visit Florence around three times a year for business, In my opinion is not better hotel than the stunning Four Seasons. But I will include some others I stay that are also gorgeous in case you can't find accommodation in high season when is book it long in advance.
I travel a great deal and stay in many exceptional hotels worldwide, and this one is always in my heart.
The hotel stands in a stunning Renaissance building and an immense 11-acre private park. ( The largest private garden in the city ) It was once owned by Pope Leo XI, the shortest serving Pope in history (26 days ) - but focus, what is important is that there’s not a lot of former papal residences you can sleep in.
If you are sleeping somewhere else, you can still enjoy the hotel with the great spa service or the One MICHELIN Star Hotel Il Palaggio.
