Out of the hustle and bustle of central Florence but still walking distance to everything. Gorgeous views of Florence from above. The hotel is beautiful with big comfortable rooms and bathrooms offering classic luxury. Big public terraces where you can enjoy the views of the city in peace and quiet. You can walk to the Duomo in about half and...

We just returned from a week long stay at the Villa. We chose this hotel since it provided for free parking. Little did we know what a great choice we made. From the outset, the staff, the accommodations and the view were first rate. Also the on-sight restaurant was excellent although a little pricey. Every morning they provided a sumptuous...

Dear bandit1, many thanks for your lovely description of our services and our location. We are very happy that you loved your stay and that our staff was helpful and polite.

Absolutely beautiful hotel, wonderful staff and fantastic perfect setting. Front desk advised and booked restaurants that we asked for, their knowledge was superb.

I was looking for somewhere to enjoy the sunset over Florence. This delightful small hotel has a grand terrace from which to enjoy the view and relax as the sun sets! We did not stay overnight but the structure was charming inside and out. Lovely wine list.

Excellent setting for dinner. We were able to sit outside with a view of the entire city of Florence before us. Excellent service and moderate pricing.

What a beautiful hotel on the hillside overlooking Florence. We stayed for two nights following seven nights in the Tuscan countryside, but wished we had stayed longer. Located very close to the Piazza Michelangelo and a pleasant stroll to the Ponte Vecchio, the also offer shuttle service into Florence. We would definitely stay here again.

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!
