stayed in a suite w living area and separate bedroom, view towards river, size of room o.k, housekeeping and service meets italian 5* standard, parking lot on site.

Although regulars to Villa La Vedetta, we consider it our duty to continue reviewing this property. In August we were fortunate enough to be able to stay 12 nights. Here are the remarks, divided in pro, regular and con given the fact that this is a five star property in Florence and therefore cannot come cheap [over € 300 per...

Florence is beautiful but in August it is hot and full of tourists and so to enjoy it you need to be able to find some calm, some cool, some elegance and some 'nurture'. Villa La Vedetta delivers on all counts. Regardless of the fact that I booked very last minute (fed up with our rainy stay in Northern France),...

My wife and I recently attended a friends wedding and all the guest s stayed at the villa. The location could not be more incredible with its views of Florence. The villa itself is beautiful with tasteful and well decorated sitting rooms, dining areas, and foyers. The rooms themselves were well decorated, spoyless, and very roomy. Our room had a...

On July 1st I had my wedding at Villa la Vedetta, and also rented out the whole hotel for 5 days for all of my guests. From the planning that took place from about a year ago, to the day of the wedding and all of the events after, everything was absolutely perfect.

I was planning to marry on the terrace as the views of Florence are stunning. Our whole trip was a diaster. The wedding planner did not bother to meet us, our rooms were damp and musky, and the food was over priced. Staff were unfriendly and miserable. I would never recommend this place. Such a shame as it could be...

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!
