A Romantic Retreat Above Florence
Il Salviatino Hotel, Florence
One of the most romantic hotels in Florence is a retreat overlooking the old town from a panoramic hill. Il Salviatino Hotel is a 15th-century palazzo surrounded by parkland, offering 61 rooms designed with opulent period furnishings and details, and is found 7km outside the city. The exact location is the town of Fiesole but you’ll feel you’re standing above Florence when looking out to the spectacular views. You’re just moments away from Michelangelo’s art and the spirit of the Renaissance but you’ll probably also want to spend some time at the hotel pampering yourself with a rejuvenating spa treatment or relaxing at the landscaped gardens.
Some of the rooms also have their own private garden and views of the Duomo, while original artwork decorate your private space indoors together with flat screens and music stations with iPod docks. You’ll also get a mixed traditional-and-contemporary taste of Tuscany in everything from the 100% Tuscan linen in your room, to the cuisine at the restaurant which serves inventive dishes made from traditional recipes. And because some guests can’t always be fully secluded, free Wi-Fi access is provided throughout the space to allow you to keep yourself connected to the world.
