We spent 9 nights at Villa La Vedetta in August 2016 and didn't want to leave. The location and views are stunning and we found it to be more like a luxurious residence than a hotel. Our suite was spacious and well appointed. Even our little dog had a beautiful little bed set out for her. Breakfast overlooking Florence was...

Great hotel overlooking Florence. Stayed in a deluxe suite and was given the choice of two rooms - picked one in a building next to the main hotel as its own outdoor terrace and was a bit bigger. Grounds of the hotel are lovely - well maintained gardens and a lovely pool area. Florence is a great city but can...

We had 2 nights at the hotel (which we have stayed at before3 years ago) to finalise plans for our wedding in September. The staff and service is exceptional and attention to detail can't be faulted. If you want a relaxing hotel outside of the city allowing easy access to Florence this is a fantastic base. Hotel food is superb....

We booked this hotel last minute having decided to visit Florence while on a road trip through Italy - it was a fantastic choice. There was ample parking at the hotel and it was a 15 minute walk down to the Ponte Vecchio. The hotel sits on a hill overlooking Florence, nearby the Piazza Michelangelo and the views from the...

Villa La Vedetta is a beautiful hotel in a magnificent setting, enhanced by attentive service. The day starts with a lovely breakfast buffet and the option to have additional dishes made to order--all included with the room fee. The dining room overlooks the terrace and a breathtaking panorama of which the Duomo is a focal point. After a busy day...

Very nice and quite hotel. 15-20 minutes away from Florence center. Free shuttle available. Breakfast with amazing view. Only downside was the hotel is very quite so you cannot make noise. They have a very limited workout corner on the top floor. So like usual I went there for a workout at 8am in the morning which I assume is...

Florence is very touristy and hectic. Villa La Vedetta, perched on the side of a hill, is the perfect antidote: a small, quiet, all-suite hotel with a personal touch. After a day battling the crowds, it was great to settle down for tea and cookies, before heading up to the well-appointed, very large rooms with high ceilings. Our room had...

Staying in Piazzale Michelangelo

Neighbourhood Profile
Piazzale Michelangelo
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and breathtaking view of the entire city from above. During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides visitors with a serene space surrounded by the amazing landscape, better if accompanied by a fresh gelato from a local kiosk. During night, visitors will be dazzled by the warm lights of the capital of the Renaissance. Spend a second with the silent Romanesque beauty of the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte: the one that wishes good morning and good night to Florence!
